An Oasis of Peace & Tranquility in Pai, Thailand

Greetings from Pura Vida Pai Resort

This beautiful resort is surrounded by working farms of the Pai River valley yet is just four kilometers from the popular walking street.

Eight individual bungalows sit amongst terraced gardens, fish ponds, and flowering lotus. The open-air reception lobby has a drinks cooler and is always accessible. Breakfast is served on a terrace overlooking the main pond with the picturesque Pai Mountains in the background.

Renovated in 2023, each bungalow features air-conditioning, new spring mattresses, and high-quality linens. The upgraded wifi offers fast, reliable internet access from anywhere in the resort—in your bungalow, on your balcony, at breakfast, or relaxing in the gardens.

Our guests enjoy remote check-in, free breakfast, and free on-site parking. The resort owner, Mrs. Vanda Prigge, is happy to assist with airport transfers from/to Chiang Mai, planning day trips around Pai District and surrounding regions, renting scooters and bicycles, and arranging on-site massage services.

Pura Vida Pai Resort is an excellent choice for travelers looking for a peaceful, natural environment with a warm, friendly atmosphere with many extras.

What an idyllic spot! Tranquil and green with each set of guests having their own little villa (8 in total). Your choice of breakfast in a garden setting. Absolutely clean and comfortable with a hostess that is well traveled, speaks English and will go the extra mile to ensure your stay is perfect!

This is the nicest place I have ever stayed. Vanda, the owner, is so sweet and helpful. You will feel like family during your whole stay! The bungalows are well made and beautifully decorated. The beds are large, comfortable, and the showers work perfectly with hot water. There is breakfast in the morning and scooters available to rent. Overall, the highlight of this place is Vanda. She is very knowledgeable about things to do in Pai, and she really knows how to make anyone feel welcome in her resort. We will be back!

Pura Vida Resort was a 10/10 experience for us, the room was perfect, the garden and the place where it is located is beautiful and really peaceful, the breakfast was so good and the relation price/quality was amazing. All of that without forgetting to mention the incredible staff that manages the hotel, they will help you with all you need, even if they don't have to. So thank you so much and we will come back 100% 🥰

A tranquil and cosy place. Away from the town centre but that is where it gets its serenity and beautiful nightscape. The garden is well tended and natural with beautiful greenery attracting birds and butterflies. You get the freshest air in Pura Vida everyday. Thanks to Vanda and her staff! This is our 2nd visit to Pai and after browsing through various choices, we still chose Pura Vida. It has been a lovely stay and we just regretted not planning more days here. Next time we will. :)

Super kleine Hütten in einem Wunderbaren Garten. Ideal um in der Natur anzukommen. Es ist ruhig und sauber! Die Besitzerin Wanda gibt sich große Mühe das sich Ihre Gäste Wohlfühlen.

מקום מדהים. חוויה נהדרת. שקט וטובל בטבע. שבע דקות נסיעה עם אופנוע למרכז הסואן של פאי.

I love Vanda and Puravida house! Vanda was really kind and exellent in hospitality. We were happy to be there. It is best to contact Vanda before your departure so you can get a ride to Puravida house.

Lovely place about 4 km from town. It's a short ride and a beautiful place with clean, well equipped cottages and a lovely green area. The hosts are very welcoming and helpful, and there's a great viewing point up a hill nearby. If we come back to Pai we'll try to stay there again.
