this is the second time I have stayed here the first was 3 years ago. Its basic and great for cutting youself off from the outside world. The rooms are minimal a bed a fan and lots of glass but at no point will you miss no tv. A short walk 20mins and your in Pai town. With Iys night... More

Great stay at Aqua resort, not the cheapest in the village(still very cheap for someone from UK) but good value when you see the other places on offer. Wonderful grounds and indivial cottages all with hot showers and light and airy feel. Owner Den is a lovely guy who offers free drop off and pick up from Pai if you... More

The owner Den, built this place from the ground up, and though he still (admittedly) has a lot of work he wants to do, this place is amazing. We came during monsoon season, so everything was lush and green, the surroundings are amazing, but the bedrooms get ever so damp due to the gap between the walls and the roof,... More

Booked a bungalow for one night and ended up staying two. We really enjoyed our stay here: quiet, secluded, our bungalow had great privacy (although we walked around the grounds and found a few others who weren't so lucky). We liked the mattress and def. needed the mosquito net. Bedding seemed clean as did the towels. Be warned though, they're... More

Den, the owner is incredibly accommodating. He built every part of this gorgeous resort himself. Wonderful place. We booked one weekend and came back for a second. It is a bit from town, although accessible by motorbike easily and walk if you are up to it. Den was kind enough to take us!

The Aqua Resort is a brilliantly crafted, peacefully relaxing, and wonderfully lazy bungalow-style resort a few minutes drive from the center of Pai social life. The resort is a dream - literally. It's the creation of one man, his dream and his vision. Den, the owner, built practically everything himself, crafting each bungalow, table and hammock down to the last... More

One reason to stay here is that there's a lovely (if very small) pool. The staff are quite helpful, but can seem a bit unbothered. Sadly, there are so many more reasons not to stay here. The bathrooms are outdoors, which in this part of Thailand, means a LOT of bugs and lizards. And not small ones either! The bed... More

When I first checked in I couldn't believe how beautiful the setting was. The cabins are gorgeous. Unfortunately, after a few days, I discovered the place was a mess. The bathrooms were impossible to keep clean as the floors are gravel. I doubt that they had ever been cleaned. The roofs leek and ooze some strange substance that ruined my... More

I booked and paid for 4 nights at Aqua resort. I didn't even stay one night! Ended up forfeiting the money and booking elsewhere. It was alright, little bit out of the main drag - 20min walk, nice grounds, beautiful gardens, pool looked nice.. I found the rooms looked ALOT better in the pictures. The bungalows are cute, but it's... More

stayed in December for 3 nights and it was fantastic!! We arrived after thinking we could fly into Pai but taking a taxi instead for 3 hours which was an experience. Den the owner had been waiting around to collect us! The rooms are just perfect nothing more is needed, it was so great to be in the gorgeous grounds... More
