The first thing to note is that In Pai is not in Pai, it is 5-6 km from Pai town centre - so don't be fooled by the name. If you stay there, you'll need a scooter and be ready to ride that distance on the country roads - some of which are pretty ropey.
I stayed to attend the yoga retreat next door. The smaller rooms were clean enough but did not have a/c, safe or fridge and my hot water did not work. Nothing to "write home about".
The people seemed nice enough when they we around. The room was cleaned every morning.
When I come back to Pai, I won't be tempted to stay there because I want the option of walking to the "walking street" and have a few beers without facing a long ride in the dark.
And there's that dog in the cage - looks very dispirited indeed.
Its a small resort, not more than 20 baan/rooms. The resort very nice, clean and good value of money.
In the morning, you can enjoy the weather and view from the balcony (if you booked the bigger baan)
Totally recommended, all the things here will make u wanna come again
In terms of the accommodation itself, this is a lovely place to stay. The twin rooms are huge with 2 double beds, a good size balcony, 2 fans, a fridge, tv and a decent sized bathroom with hot water shower. Very clean and the friendly staff make up your room and provide fresh water on a daily basis. It is a fair way out of town, about a 15 min drive and because of this the setting is very peaceful, apart from the rooster that crows at 4:30 am!
But in saying all that, I couldn't agree more with drtrekker_13 in her review - see her review for details but in short, there is a beautiful dog there that is kept in a cage and as far as I know, never let out of that cage unless the owner is around (I'm not sure when the owner is around but the dog wasn't let out in the 5 days that I stayed at In Pai). I was told that the dog is too friendly and jumps on people and that is why it is kept in the cage. This is extremely cruel and was really disappointing to see. I understand that a dog jumping on you can be uncomfortable and scary if you don't like dogs, but keeping this dog on a lengthy chain so it can still run around and interact with other dogs and people that want to interact with it would be a much better option as there is plenty of space on the property. As a plea to the owner of In Pai, please release your dog and give him a better life!
