About This Listing
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

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Paya Villa où nous nous sommes retrouvés en famille.
Nous avons été superbement bien reçu et conseillé par le house manager. Nous nous sommes régalés avec la cuisine Thaï préparée avec soin par la jeune cuisinière.
Nous avons apprécié la discrétion des gens de maison et leur gentillesse.
Nous avons été comblé !!!
Seul bémol....Nous avions choisi cette maison pour la piscine et nous avons passé 4 jours avec de l'eau verte plus un jour sans pouvoir se baigner. Il est regrettable que le nécessaire n'ait été effectué que lorsque nous avons insisté et ceci la veille de notre départ.
Our stay at Paya Villa was incredible! The house is much bigger than it appears in pictures, and the garden and pool is a wonderful retreat from the days' adventures. We would highly recommend staying here. Comfortably sleeps 8 adults, and the poolside bungalows are great and well appointed. The staff was amazing, attentive, and very helpful. They helped book excursions and drove us in a comfortable van around the city. The food prepared in the house was incredible as well. Definitely stay in a few nights to enjoy the wonderful Thai home cooking. There is a great lounge deck fronting the river which was a hot spot for hanging out every day. The river was less than desirable, but the villa and its grounds were fantastic.
Pramort was a great host - very responsive and helpful in setting up our airport transfer and answering questions promptly in preparation for our stay.
This was our first time to Chiang Mai and we'd recommend it to friends.
We're a group of 6 girls and we enjoy staying at Paya villa. Villa's house manager gave us a warm welcome when we check-in. The facilities of villa is very nice. 2 bedroom next to the pool and 2 bedroom upstairs. The bed is king size which we can have pillow talk at night d a Thai fired rice as our breakfast which taste good. When we check-out, villa manager help us to call the taxi to airport. But the villa is a little bit far from old town.
The villa is way better than the picture shows. A private villa with a really helpful manager Poh and a house keeper Kwan and other two staffs made our family a fabulous stay in Chiang Mai. The villa has everything you need, really feel like being at home but with 5star hotel treatment.
We stay there for 3 nights, and made a big dinner to celebrate Chinese New Year, Kwan helped a lot to make us easier to prepare such a big dinner and Poh gave us a great guidance to do all the grocery shopping.
The pool was also great , my kid had a lot of fun to spend his time in the pool.
Been traveled to many places in the world, this is the first time that I couldn't keeping talking to my friend to try Chiang Mai and pays villa.
A womderful experience at Paya Villa, beautiful property and furniture, lovely location and brilliant staff. Would not hesitate in returning as soon possible!
We had a fabulous stay at Paya Villa! The villa definitely looks better than the photos shown online. Love the furniture made by the owner. Manager Poh is really nice and helpful and he helped us to take some good photos. :) The food prepared by the housekeepers, Kwan and Som are very nice too, we especially like the Thai breakfast they prepared for us. And we had a private yoga class in the garden which was really nice too! We hope we could have stayed longer!!!
Paya Villa was true to the pictures and description, a luxurious home away from home. Like a 5 star resort, the place was clean and well equipped, the rooms were large and comfortable and the house staff were warm and friendly. Very helpful in all areas and there was never any lack of amenities for my grp of 8.
We had a BBQ dinner and they helped set up the furniture and necessities including handmaking all dips & sauces. They also bought sky lanterns and that was a real treat.
Only issue is the villa is about 20min away from town and there was no readily available taxi or public transport which made going out a bit of a trouble if you didnt hire their driver.
Much thanks to Pramort, Poh and Kuanth for helping us with this wonderful holiday. We will definitely be back.
About the Host, Pramort
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.
