    Amazing Service”

    We stayed at Pura Vida for a few nights in Jan. The owner was super friendly and accomodating and made us feel at home from the second we arrived. Unfortunately my partner got sick during our stay and the owners went out of their way to ensure she was comfortable and had everything she needed. The rooms were clean and the facilities were excellent. The location is close enough to Pai to be convenient but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. When we had to change to another resort (my fault I should have booked more nights at Pura Vida before it filled up) the owners, again, went above and beyond with their service and they personally drove my girlfriend with our luggage to the new resort. Absolutely excellent service and I will not hesitate to recommend Pura Vida to anyone who travels to Pai! Thank you from Australia!

    The Pura Vida is just great - yes it is a little away from the center, but in Pai we would suggest to rent a bike anyway - so it took us just 3 minutes to be where all the shops and restaurants are - and the advantage when being outside: the landscape is amazing and you can sleep with a quit surrounding. Also the owners of the pura vida are really nice and help you with everything you need!

    Other than no heat in the cold mornings in the winter, and the location is a bit far to walk to town, if you rent a scooter, then it's a great location. Rooms are very nice, lovely breakfast area and nice sunsets. The best part of this property is the staff and owner.

    LOVED BEING IN THE PEACEFUL SURROUND OF PAI”

    Only stayed 1 night at Pura Vida Resort but felt welcomed and well taken care of by the owner and staff. Rooms were simple and clean and had everything we needed. Beautiful gardens surround each cottage and the property. Some may not like being outside of Pai and the activities going on there, but we loved it. The centre of Pai is a little much, in our opinion. If you want peace and quiet and to experience the beauty of northern Thailand, stay at Pura Vida Resort.

    Good”

    The hotel was nice in itself, but not what we had expected. It's called a resort, but it's not self sufficient. We booked this hotel as the last one during our Mae Hong Song loop holiday and wanted something more expensive out of town, so when we saw the rooms that looked nice and the fact that it was called a resort and the price was steep for Thailand, we didn't read all the facilities. Unfortunately it turned out that the resort had no restaurant or bar. They only serve breakfast, which was fantastic though. So we had to drive 4km into Pai to have dinner very night. That wasn't ideal and it calling the place a resort is misleading. The porch in front of the room is not well thought through either, the bench is set to face the door, not really a great view when having a beer. Shower had ok pressure and while the room was super clean and nicely decorated, the bed comfortable, both nights when we turned the lights on there were ants running around the room or in the bathroom.

    Reviewed January 02, 2019

    Dear Triiiiin, We're sorry you had such a disappointing experience. Maybe better next time you read all about what the hotel (resort) has to offer. What about turning around on the bench or shift around a little bit to enjoy the view. You know how to improvise? Good luck and thanks for your positive remarks. Greetings, Noi and Aad.

    This is a very special place and the whole experience certainly surpassed our expectations. The location was perfect for us as we hired a motorbike - we could enjoy the quiet, rural setting whilst still being only a 10/15 minute bike ride from the centre of Pai. The gardens are beautiful and the breakfast was delicious. The owners are lovely people and the genuine love and care they clearly have for Pura Vida really shows. We enjoyed our stay so much we have altered our travel plans to return for a couple more nights :)

    The best thing about staying here is the service, location and people. Reached Pai in the afternoon and called the resort, whom asked me to wait for 10mins while they drove over, and checked whether i need a bike, which they will arrange at the resort. When we arrived at the resort, the bike was already there! A* for efficiency. The resort is 15mins ride away from the town, so there was no noise pollution. Will stay there again

    Thank you so much”

    I can't thank the owners Noi and her husband enough. I had a motorbike accident and injured my foot. Noi took me to the hospital to get treatment for three days. They offered me breakfast and helped me buy lunch and dinner every day during my stay. They provided much-needed help when I couldn't walk and was traveling alone. The hotel is 5km outside of the town so you get lots of tranquility and peace, and you do need your own transportation to get around such as a motorbike or a car, which can be rented. Each "room" is actually a standalone little house, so you have lots of privacy and don't need to worry about noise from the neighbors. The resort is surrounded by beautiful ponds and gardens. Overall, a very nice place run by a very friendly couple.

    We were having an excellent stay in Pura Vida. Although our first room, (which we like it so much) got some defects, we have to move to the other room and it was equally nice! It was so relax to hear the insect, birds and small animals voices during the night time. The resort were well maintain. A nice pond in front of the reception. The breakfast were yummy! You are highly recommend to try their special menu. Delicious and refreshing in the morning. We went out for a morning jog around the resort, it was great and happy to see nice scene along the way. The resort is a little bit distance from the town.We were aware of this and hired a car to drive to the resort. You can easily do this with Google maps. We were receiving kind reminder from Noi about this. It was so nice and I can feel her caring before my arrival. We were having a nice chat with the resort owner, Noi. We wish we can stay there for few more days. Perhaps my next visit again to Pai.

    A great peaceful place”

    We found a great deal on agoda, but don't be fooled by low season discounts, this is an absolutely beautiful place. As others have said, its worth renting a motorbike in town because its about a 15 minute drive and really not walkable. But for only 100 to 150 baht per day for a bike, its totally worth it because then you're free to explore the area as well. The staff was excellent and very friendly. We had a bungalow that was right in front of their lake/pond. The landscaping is beautiful... Koi fish in ponds and beautiful plant life. It was just a perfect place. Can't say enough good things! Highly recommended for couples. Thanks again, Pura Vida, we loved our time there (and extended our stay...because why not at that price!). -Adrian and Hjalte

    We enjoyed stay at Pura Vida! We arrived there at the evening, and the owner of the resort, Noi, gave us a warm welcome. Although we only stayed at Pai 1 day, she recommended us the places should go and the good restaurants in the main street in town. She also chatted with us like friends that made us felt the different experiences during our stay. Our room is cozy, neat and surrounded by the green gardens. Breakfast is nicely done by Noi and we could choose between 4 different dishes. Enjoyed having breakfast in this green little heaven.

    one of the most marvelous experiences in my life”

    环境优美,员工友好,早餐美味

    i wrote this in English so that the host and the hostess, who are the nicest couple in the world, can see my comment. They came to pick up us the moment we arrived in pai and helped us to rent the motorbike. As it was the busy season, they looked for the bikes from door to door. After we arrived at the puravida, we were amazed at the beautiful scenery of the resort, even more beautiful than the pictures. The hostess took out the map and told us everything in detail which brought a lot of convenience for us in the following two days. The hostess made wonderful breakfast and it is an amazing experience to have breakfast by the river and look at stars at night. although we only stayed there two days, the couple impressed us deeply and i believe one day, we will meet each other again.Dear, i will send you our photos later! wish u couple health and happiness. Take care! the only disadvantage is that it is a little bit far from the town. Although riding motorbike is wonderful, the resort is not strongly recommended for old people---however,you can also rent a car. 酒店夫妇是我们旅行至今见过的最好的店主,态度诚恳,体贴入微,homemade的早餐非常美味,接送都非常的准时。 酒店环境异常优美,就单单坐在河边看看日落和星星就已经是非常美好的事,而pai县更是我们此行的亮点。 唯一的劣势是酒店距离市中心有4公里,骑摩托车大概需要15分钟,虽然骑摩托非常开心,但如果有老年人一起,建议还是租车进出。
