              Stayed 2 nights in June 2014

              Pleasant stay”

              Artistic room decoration, clean spacious room, terrace you can see the river

              The start was bad. The Agoda map was showing the wrong location so it took an hour to find the lodge by asking around local people. (I already reported the correct location to Agoda, so it should be corrected by now!) My stay at Sawasdee Pai River Resort was so pleasant and I really enjoyed my stay there. The owners or lodge staff was very nice and keep the confortable distance with the guests, not too close, not careless... The lodge was close to the main area (Nightly Walking Street as well) and close to bars and eateries, and still very quiet, and you are surround by lots of green and enjoy the river view. I stayed a Baan Din room which was decorated so artisticlly with the pains, didn't have AC, Fan instead. The hot shower worked fine. However, my first night, I felt my bed cushion was very hot somehow and I woke up sweating a few times. And the next day I found out why. I saw the hotel owner/staff actually hang out the bed cushion under the sun when guests checked-out, which is a wonderful thing to do to prevent bedbugs! I slept fine next night, by the way. For the most of solo travelers, it might be a bit over the budget to stay here but this is Pai. Enjoy the colorful room with greens & river!

              Friendly owners, beautiful location”

              My wife and I stayed at Sawasdee Pai River Resort for 9 days. We loved our cosy and clean little bungalow (#4). The grounds of the resort are very pretty and well maintained, with a manicured lawn, lots of tropical plants, and friendly animals. The air conditioning worked great, which was fantastic because it gets pretty hot in Pai during the summer. The owners were very kind and helpful. They helped us find activities to go to, arranged a day tour for us through a 3rd party tour company, and helped us rent scooters at the rental place next door. When my wife needed a hair dryer, the owners lent us one for our whole stay. I highly recommend staying here. We plan to return next year if we can.

              Great Stay & nice yoga class ”

              I went to Pai from Chiang Mai via aya minibus. Sawasdee Pai River is just walking distance from Aya van station where the minibus will drop us. There is night market every night in Pai and it is just 5 mins walk. The room I stayed is for 2 person with nice nice toilet attached and they also have Tv & mini fridge as well. RM90 for a house / Bangalow / room is more than what I can ask for. The receptionist is so so lovely & helpful. They also have morning & evening yoga class to attend (200 baht per session - 1 n a half hours per session) & it was good!!!!! STRONGLY recommend for those solo traveler who wish to walk around the town by foot.

              Hidden gem next to Pai River”

              I've stayed in Pai many many times over the years, but this was my first time staying at Sawasdee Pai. As soon as I arrived I knew we would not be disappointed. The set-up of the rooms and pool area are very suitable for groups of friends and couples to stay. The rooms are cool and comfortable. The river view is relaxing. It has an nice old school Pai vibe to it, while still being modern and well appointed. The owners are very friendly, including their son who was helpful and gave us a cool Sawasdeepai stickers when we checked out. Off street parking is available. Location wise, it's only a 5 minute or less walk to walking street and all the bars etc. About a 20 minute walk to the hillside Buddha to watch the sunset.

              A little sanctuary”

              Sawasdee Pai is a gem of a place. Rustic, but the rooms are big and comfortable, with a fridge, TV and air con. They are wooden huts on stilts surrounded by foliage, and have a terrace. It is a lovely tranquil setting beside the river. There is a small cafe with good coffee. They also run yoga classes which I would highly recommend. The location is close to everything and only a five minute walk from the bus station.

              I've stayed at Sawasdee Pai a few times already. It's a beautiful place and decorated with attenition to detail. The location is excellent right by the river and all Pai 'essentials' are in walking distance. The staff is very friendly & helpful and I love that they offer yoga classes twice a day too!

              Location, design, quiet.

              Friendly staff, beautiful artistically decorated rooms, quiet balcony facing the river. Close to bars and restaurants. I went to Pai with friends. We were all staying in different resorts. This one was in the best location to meet, chat on the verandah and get ready for our excursions.

              Romantic stay over Pai River”

              Location was smack-on, just a stone's throw away from the town centre - Walking Street, Pai Bus Station, White Buddha, etc. Super friendly staffs who were never lack of their sweet smiles and very courteous. The room was cosy and spacious. More importantly, the room was kept very tidy and clean. TV was from the olden days, but not a big issue. We booked the room without breakfast, but received a pleasant surprised when the staff informed us that we would get our breakfast the next morning. The breakfast, though not out-of-the-world, but was very fresh and delicious. Fresh fruits were served together with cheese and ham toast, with scrambled eggs. For yoga enthusiasts, you may want to join the morning yoga class (additional charge will incur). All in all, this is a highly recommended place when you visit Pai.

              In my months of traveling, this was my favorite place to stay. Staff is AMAZING (lost my bag with my passport and money- and it was brought to me by the awesome dude working there- thus saving my life! Rooms are gorgeous - a bit cold at night but most places near the river are, and they bring you an extra blanket if you need Good wifi, amazing atmosphere- sleeping listening to the river - GORGEOUS rooms and exceptional staff! Thank you!

              We stayed here for 5 nights in Pai. Super clean and comfortable. Loved the pool and hangout area and yoga classes available right on the property. The ONLY downside is that the bars are super close so it gets noisy at night - I would stay here again but bring earplugs. Overall great place to stay in Pai and close to everything.

              Beautiful bungalows with lovely floors and windows right by the river. You can hear the river flowing when you go to bed. The staff were really friendly - they provided us with an extra kettle so we could make our own coffee. The shower was separate from the toilet. 5 minutes away from the walking street. Would 100% stay here again.

My girlfriend was very sick when we arrived and they brought her to the hospital and stayed with us whole the way and made sure we were OK. I would definitely recommend this host. The included breakfast was rich and tasty!

              Nice balconies on the river front, comfy beds, nice details and art everywhere. Very good yoga teacher, yoga at the terrace by the river is great. Pool was clean. Staff friendly. Directly in the center, but for me it wasn’t loud at all. I would like to come back again. Only annoying thing was a the licking sink in the bathroom, but I’m sure they will fix it.

              Beautiful room, perfect stay”

              I stayed here for 8 nights in March and booked a Baan Din room online for approx 450 Baht per night. I think the walkin price is just 400. The room has a terrace/patio area, a large bedroom and a bathroom. There is no aircon in this room type but a fan. It has a fridge and TV and hot water shower with a gas-boiler. The owners/caretakers are nice and there are lots of cats around. Room is cleaned on request but 2 free bottles of water every day. I loved to stay in this wonderful decorated room and would always come back. Some minor down-points: very low water pressure, instable wifi, close to the street and to "no cry bar" and thats why sometimes loud.
