Bueng Pai Farm Reviews
The Best Place We've Stayed in Thailand - 'Even the Hammocks Are Smiling!' Jan 18, 2012
We were recommended Bueng Pai Farm by friends. We emailed ahead and Run & Orn (the owners) replied straight away asking us to phone when we arrived in Pai. Run picked us up at the bus station and helped us rent a scooter (an excellent way to enjoy the Pai countryside).
From the moment we arrived at Bueng Pai Farm, we knew we had made the absolute best decision of our 5 week holiday. We were shocked at the beauty of the place. The farm is set in a gorgeous valley with mountains surrounding two beautiful man made lakes. The bungalows on the lake have private balconies stretching out onto the lake where guests can fish for free. Rooms are basic but very clean with a hot shower. The bedroom has a desk, fan and mosquito net above the comfortable bed. Linen, pillows and towels are good quality and smell fresh.
The gardens around the lake and bungalows are also breathtaking and lush with colour. Orn (he owner) grows all her own fruit and vegetables all organic and taste amazing. Try the muesli with organic yoghurt, it has over 20 ingredients and is delicious! They even have a fully equipped guest kitchen so you can cook your own meals if you like. A first in my travels.
We only planned to stay 2 days but ended up staying 10 days! We mostly spent our days lazing and reading in our hammocks and fishing in the lake catching massive cat fish!
Bueng Pai Farm is serene and peaceful! The owners have created something extraordinary! Pai itself has a wonderful vibe and nearby you can enjoy hot springs, elephant trekking, waterfalls and the company of laid back locals.
Note that Bueng Pai Farm is about 2.5 km's out of Pai but we enjoyed the peacefulness of not being in the centre of town. We especially loved listening to frogs and crickets at night!
Finally the price. In short, you get a resort experience at a backpacker price! Do yourself a favour and stay at Bueng Pai Farm!
