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.

Upstairs lie the two master bedrooms with comfortable four-post beds, extra deep sofas and large balconies overlooking the garden and swimming pool.

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.
