Wonderful place with amazing hosts ”
I was at Pura Vida for about a week and can only say the best things! Highly recommend to visit it! The property with it's garden is amazingly beautiful, the bungalows are fully equipped and super nice and clean. Breakfast is massive and super fresh and tasty! The best about Pura Vida are Noi and her husband Aad who run that place. They are not just friendly and hosting, they are genuinely interested that you feel welcome and good during your stay - Noi is always smiling and super sweet. They helped me a lot when I had to fight a fever and took care of me. Also they are open for every question you might have. Their staff is super nice and helpful as well. All in all its definitely worth a visit! Also the location is really nice - it's a few km out of town. If you wanna be at the Centre of action you should know that. BUT this is not a critique, it's just Wirth knowing. I really enjoyed the quiet and peaceful surrounding! Thanks you two, for hosting me and being so sweet! Best wishes

Great”
Beautiful, serene location. Really nice, bright, comfortable rooms. Great hosts who helped us out a lot with what to see/do/eat. It's very isolated, but that's no problem with a scooter. They had one brought out to us as soon as we arrived. If you need to stay close to the party and meet people, this is not the right place. But here you will find space, quiet, privacy, and be very well taken care of. Awesome. Thank you guys!

Mountain oasis”
I'd read wonderful things about the owners, which was a huge part of why I booked the place. They lived up to their reputation. They were responsive and prompt in their communication prior to my arrival. The resort was a few miles from the town center, but they arranged a scooter rental so it was really not a big deal at all. Pai is a very small town anyways. The resort itself was gorgeous and very well-maintained. There are only a few bungalows, so book ahead of time! Although there were other bungalows, there was a lot of privacy and I felt as if I had the grounds entirely to myself when I was there. There isn't any food available besides what's served at breakfast (which is amazing. by the way) so I would prepare ahead of time by buying snacks to keep in the fridge in case you find yourself hungry in the middle of the night. The owner recommended wonderful places to eat where I could try some regional dishes. She even arranged transportation for me from Pai back to Chiang Mai airport. Such a warm and wonderful host.

Lovely place and the best staff”
Pura Vida was an excellent place to stay and Noi and her husband are wonderful! Noi knows everything there is to know about Pai, has the best recommendations and can connect you with whatever you want to do. Do note that it is a bit further from the city center; I did not want to ride a motorbike, but was still able to rent a regular bike and Noi heads into town once a day. Clean and well kept. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Perfect retreat from the city”
Friendly and accommodating staff! They really want you to enjoy and make the most of your stay in Pai. Within an hour after arrival, we were on our motorbikes touring the country side. This is a great place to stay if you don't mind being away from the center of town. But you do need some means of transportation if you wish to do any site seeing. The staff are willing to help you find your way around by contacting the bike rental place for you and giving you a map to show you how to get to places on your agenda.

Peaceful and pristine ”
After spending time in Bangkok and Chiang Mai, Pai was just what we needed. Pura Vida is close to Pai's downtown where there are restaurants, bars and markets but it's not right in it which we found refreshing. It's a 5-10 minute drive away in the countryside (they picked us up from the bus station upon arrival and we rented scooters for getting around during our stay which they kindly set up for us). The landscape surrounding Pura Vida is stunning and the view from our bungalow was heavenly. The property grounds were also lovely including a pond with fish and lots of different flowers. Lots to do in Pai -- waterfalls, temples, hot springs, caves...just riding around and seeing the landscape was dreamy enough for us. Loved this hotel and would stay there again!

It was the hidden gem of Pai located a few kilometers outside of the downtown area.”
Tranquil setting with water lilies, ponds, flowering trees and foot bridges. The rooms were very comfortable with all your needs met including cute towel sculptures every day. The options for your daily breakfast were delicious. Best of all, the hosts were so nice and super helpful. I could not recommend this place enough. 5 stars for sure!
