When we went to pai, darling was not there. There was an other lady who helped us and gave us the worst bungalow. The floor was really old and it felt like you could fall through it any moment. When I asked if there was an other bungalow (cause the other ones looked way better!) she said if we wanted... More

Private rooms are cheap and are clean enough. It's not luxurious but perfect for the average backpacker. Darling and Peter (owners) are devoted to this place and to everyone who stays there. If you have any trouble booking a transfer or any questions they will spend an hour trying to figure out a solution. Just to meet these too person... More

I'm giving this an Average, due to certain things not quite making it a poor. We stayed here one night, due to the hostel we wanted to stay in was currently booked up - PS. don't go to that one either. The location itself is good, just outside of the main town so you don't have to deal with all... More

Darling, the owner, has enough personality and love for all who stay with her that I could've slept on the floor. That said, the room had a great view as well as comfy hammocks outside to lay on. There was a nice pool and place to hang out at night. Thanks Darling!

When I arrived I had to wait an hour to be shown to the wrong room, when I explained it was not the room I reserved online the woman told me I was clever and took me to another room, still a much cheaper room than the room I reserved. After again asking for the room I reserved, the owner... More

It was a tough old ride on motorbikes from Chiang Mai to get to Pai. 2 of us got the bus and 2 rode. When we arrived at Darling Viewpoint guesthouse it was hard to find where reception was... If there was one? We were a bit confused to start off with until Darling approached us. Very friendly and helpful.... More

Sitting on the hill with excellent views of the town and river below this is a nice place to stay. Ann is a great little lady. A delightful eccentric host. Though her colleague Peter is seemingly useless. Not sure what he does. And he knows nothing. If anything he makes her job much harder. Whilst my stay for the night... More

It's quiet here and the beds aren't very comfortable but it's cheap. As to the owner - she was really friendly but seemed a bit crazy so maybe you have to just catch her on a good day. The whole place seems very messy and unorganised but it's right next to the circus school so it's a cheaper option than... More

I stayed at Darling Viewpoint on a 2 night stay in Pai. My first impression when I turned up with my friend was one of "where is the reception area to check in?!" because they don't really have anything that resembles one. However when we did get checked in we found our bungalow to be a tight fit for the... More
