We enjoyed two days in an Upper Mountain Room at PhuChaiSai. We have stayed over all Thailand - being expats who have lived here for 13 years. We retreated there to do some book writing, so were expecting not to see any views because of smoke pollution which is throughout Chiang Rai for 7 months of the year. However, I found this resort incredibly overpriced. Yes, it is rustic, beautifully laid out with gardens and great views (the views you can only see when the smoke pollution isn't there - i.e. only between June and November). But, given my experiences all around Thailand, I really didn't think it was worth the THB 3,600 per night (Australian Dollars 180). We ate at the restaurant the first night and were shocked at the exorbitant prices. So, the 2nd night we walked down to Katiliya (5 minutes walk downhill, where we had stayed last year) to eat dinner at prices around 20-30 % lower with huge servings and good food. Positives - The resort is very peaceful, has beautiful gardens and for that we were impressed and thankful. The breakfast is plentiful and excellent. The rooms are large and the bathroom is large with separate bath. Negatives - High prices (as already mentioned). In the rooms there are no refrigerators - a huge negative and very unusual for such a high priced resort. So there is no way to have cold water, during the very hot days of hot season, unless you go to the restaurant and pay exorbitant prices for a drink. Also, there are no glass windows in the bathroom, only insect screens. So, there is nothing to stop the smoke pollution entering the huge bathroom area. I would recommend not visiting here between late November and beginning of June - the smoke pollution is now horrendous and at very unhealthy levels throughout Chiang Rai province over those 7 months (worsens every year) and you really can't see any view at all - see one of my pictures. We took an Air Purifier with us, it read over 200 AQI inside the room on arrival (principally because of the lack of glass windows in the bathroom). Once we closed off the bathroom and got the air purifier on, it brought the air quality down to 30 AQI (a healthy level). But we had to run the air purifier constantly to keep the inside air healthy. This resort will need to lower its prices (for rooms and at the restaurant) to attract large visitor numbers back, once the world economy and travel restrictions improve.

We had a 3 night stay here. The resort is at the end of a long drive and has amazing views over the surrounding hills. The site is sloping and the huts or villas are surrounded by beautiful gardens. I would recommend a pool villa which gives lots of space and has its own plunge pool. The food wasn't the best we had in Thailand but perfectly adequate and not too pricey. The on site thai massage was absolutely wonderful and very good value. The Phu Chaisai is full of rustic charm and I would certainly recommend a few nights here if touring the north of Thailand.

We spent a couple of nights here in a villa with a pool. The staff were lovely and you feel embraced in nature. Do be aware that this is probably not a good location if you have mobility issues as it's set on a hillside with quite a lot of steps to some rooms and the restaurant. The bar and restaurant were beautiful and the food was very good.

Beautiful setting, wonderful staff. We enjoyed four night and five days of relaxing at this tranquil retreat. The warm winter sun, cool evenings and magnificent vistas kept us content and captivated. We would recommend exploring the various trekking paths which take you to secluded outlooks around the estate. Residents and staff always had warm smiles and advice.
