Check In Date
Deluxe Double Bed with Garden View
I went to Pai at the beginning of the low season in Thailand as the temperature each day is around 40 – 45 degrees, so the price of the hotel was relatively low, but it does get lower during the monsoon season (up until October.
We booked and stayed here for two nights. Our room includes
- Breakfast (a la carte)
And here is what
Deluxe Double Bed with Garden View (B5)
The room exceeded my expectations as i have done some researching online and the only photos of the resort are on Tripadvisor. The photos there does not justify how charming this boutique hotel is. I could tell from the pictures on Tripadvisor the hotel is fairly small and modern which i liked. However, this little resort is too charming for photos.
The room was spacious and much bigger than the rooms in Pai. After checking in, we were shown to our room. Coming out of the lobby, you will pass the restaurant/breakfast area, then the pool and you will walk through the garden to the rooms. Every room has a little balcony at the front with a table and chair for you to enjoy the view.
The room was spacious and big, with lots of room for luggage. I love the seating area by the window where you can just chillax, read a book or just look outside and enjoy the place. The bed is a queen size bed which I absolutely adored. Bed was perfectly made which made it so welcoming everyday to come back and see a perfect clean bed. The TV is Samsung brand and the kettle is Tefal brand, what more can you ask for from a little boutique hotel all the way out in Pai? Lots of channels on the TV and magazines are even provided too. One thing i must mention is the hairdryer, it’s a Panasonic hairdryer (EH-NE11) that blows negative ions into your hair making it smoother. I enjoyed having nice silky hair than being burnt off by some cheap hairdryer.
Only thing I disliked was the slippers provided by them. I am sure the slippers are not new, it has been worn by previous visitors, I would prefer disposable slippers.
Bathroom is located at the back of the room. one thing I really disliked was how heavy the bathroom door was and the loud noise it made whenever you are closing it. Apart from that, I have no complains at all. The bathroom was modern and clean, matching with the room. Bathroom amenities are provided and hot water worked perfected,
The resort isn’t in Pai’s town centre, it is a good ten minutes walk to the town centre which isn’t too bad. The advantage of staying out here is you won’t be seeing any backpackers, noisy crowds and expats. The resort is very tranquil and calm, you won’t be seeing much of your neighbours. There are other hotels and B&B on the way to Pai town centre. The view is amazing while walking out and across the bridge. You will discover how raw and simple pai is. I love the location of the resort, I rather walk more and get my privacy.
Breakfast and restaurant
American Fried Rice Set
Family House Breakfast
Breakfast is a la carte here and they serve western breakfasts as well as Asians. I had breakfast there for two mornings so I got to try two different types of breakfast.One morning i chose the American Fried Rice Set which comes with a chicken sausage, a fried egg and a fruit salad which really filled me up. The next day I chose the Family House breakfast which consist of two pieces of toast with tomatoes, scrambled eggs and sausage. I really liked the yogurt with fruits that came with the set. We were asked coffee or tea, and with coffee we can even choose which type of coffee. I must have had 4 cups of latte which tasted delicious. unlimited coffee for breakfast, I love it!

I loved every minutes I spent at Family House Zen Boutique Resort and wished I had spent longer there. When I was planning my trip to Pai, I had look into accommodations in Pai and it was impossible to find a reasonable price, modern place and only walking distance to the town centre. This was perfect and I was not disappointed
Would I go back again? Yes, definitely
Would I recommend this to people? Yes, definitely
