I found this place so peaceful to write my book. The service is excellent. I was very impressed with the owner's service and commitment to help the customers. I lost my wallet on the way back to the resort one night. I almost gave up looking for it and canceled all my credit

My wife and I started at Pura Vida for three nights and really enjoyed our stay. It's about 4km north of Pai, but the manager Noi was very helpful and arranged for a scooter to be dropped off for us for 200 baht each day. This is more than you would pay to rent a scooter in Pai,

Hi I would recommend you try a motorbike or hire a car. the resort is definitely out of the way of the town. you would need a reliable taxi driver if you used that as your mode of transport. we wouldn't recommend you rely on others for transportation. motorcycle is the very best way to see pai anyway!!! there isn't a reception as such at the hotel and no restaurant. if you have your own transportation this resort is an amazing place to stay, it was one of the highlights of our five month trip around asia. beautiful location, friendly staff and local people, awesome breakfast.

"Don't hesitate to stay ,, just book it and enjoy."
"We stayed in room 4, but I don't think any cottage would be better than another."
"Avoid the hassle of renting a scooter yourself and ask Noi to do it for you in advance. It was so convenient and very reasonably priced."
"I stayed in room 8, right on the pond, very nice."
"Ask for the lower level bungalows"
