The Space

Paya Villa is a luxurious holiday villa situated at the picturesque Mae Ping River, just 20 minutes drive from the city center, major regional attractions and Chiang Mai’s international airport.

Surrounded by a tropical garden and edging a large private swimming pool, Paya Villa combines the luxury of a five star hotel with the privacy, spaces and homeliness of a private residence. With an area of 1,500 square meters, Paya Villa offers generous luxury accommodation for up to eight guests

Equipped with all modern amenities and comfort, the villas are delightfully furnished in contemporary Thai style, with solid rosewood floor, teak furniture, high ceilings and air conditioners in all four bedrooms, living area, and dining area.

The 2-story main building provides generous space with ample seating and dining facilities for up to 10 guests. Upstairs lie the two master bedrooms with comfortable four-post beds, extra deep sofas and large balconies overlooking the garden and swimming pool. The two large and comfy poolside bedroom villas are equipped with four single beds.

So while a larger party or family group can enjoy the ample living spaces, the villa also thoughtfully provides en-suite bathrooms and separate entrances, so that you can enjoy full privacy and independence as well.

Catering is also very flexible: the villa provides two separate fully-equipped kitchens (in traditional Thai style these a short distance from the villas for your undisturbed convenience) where you can explore your culinary skills, or have our in-house cook prepare Thai meals for you at a very reasonable rate.

The outside area with swimming pool and tropical garden offers you magnificent views over the Mai Ping River. Outdoor day-beds, garden benches and an own river dock are an ideal place for you to relax, unwind and enjoy the scenery.

Live-in housekeeper, house chauffeur, and in-house manager will be available to provide you with assistance at your request. The housekeeper will clean the room and help you prepare the breakfast, groceries excluded, free of charges. Van rental is available for your convenience, it can be arranged for individual trip or all day usage.

Embedded into the beautiful landscape of the Mae Ping River, Paya Villa provides you with an extraordinary holiday experience that surpasses the quality of top-rated hotels and resorts

  • Wow! What an incredible experience. The best way I can describe this experience is as being like privatizing a boutique hotel for the weekend. This was my first experience with Airbnb and completely exceeded my already high expectations. Mr. Pramort, the owner, was incredibly gracious and responsive, attentive and professional from the moment we booked providing for all our needs and arranging even the smallest details. His team, which includes a house manager, cook, driver and maid, took incredible care of us. As a group of eight, all flying in from different parts of the region, we were so grateful for their help organizing cars and vans to shuttle us to and from the airport and in and around town during the festivities of the Loy Kratong festival. They prepared lovely basic breakfasts for our group both does and were not invasive at all. Mr. Poh, the house manager speaks perfect English and is a good as host as you could ask for.

    The house itself, divided into a main house with two master bedrooms and two pool houses on the river, is incredibly beautiful and tasteful. There is an incredible attention to detail from the lovely antique furniture, woven linen cottons, to a powerful surround sound system. The house is perfectly maintained and being on the river made it an amazing play to celebrate Loy Kratong.

    Despite feeling like renting out a boutique hotel, the place has lovely personal touches including a guest book signed by many happy guests who have stayed at Paya Villa. We would absolutely come back and recommend this Airbnb listing in the strong terms possible.

  • Paya Villa was awesome. It's a beautiful house in a great setting overlooking the river. In advance of the stay, Pramort, the owner, was extremely responsive and helpful, going above and beyond. Once we got there we were greeted by the house manager Poh, who arranged for us to have a driver (chai) who took us to the market to buy groceries and into town. Poh also arranged for the on-hand staff to cook and clean when we wanted it, and had a great Thai dinner the first night at the house!

    The only downsides are that It's a bit far from town (30 mins or so drive - we usually used this time to sleep), and if you're not one of the lucky four sleeping in the main house you are stuck in a twin (single?) bed in one of the two identical guest houses (either side of the pool).. we basically drew straws for who would have to sleep in the guest house.

    Overall, would highly recommend it if going to Chiang Mai with a group for a few days and you don't want the typical hotel experience.

Paya Shop
I am a managing partner of Paya Shop, a home decorating shop in Bangkok. My wife is another managing partner. I design and make custom solid wood furniture. She is responsible for the soft-furnishing and hand-craft products. We had to visit Chiang Mai so often for business and we would also like to settle down there after retirement, so the idea of building this house came up. We built this property from scratch. All furniture except the older pieces and the soft furnishing were made from our own workshop in Bangkok.
