Best Hotel in Pai: Reverie Siam Resort

My visit to Pai was made perfect by my stay here. Even with the promising excellent reviews I read online from TripAdvisor, various booking sites like Agoda and; Reverie Siam managed to exceed my expectation.

Imagine realistic Alice in Wonderland and you get Reverie Siam resort. Founded by an English and two Thai siblings, Reverie Siam is the epitome of vintage English with a hinge of Thai. I'll admit, it's hard to pick a bone with this place.

After 3 hours of windy journey to this secluded hipster village of Pai, I was rewarded with the best stay on my two weeks long trip across northern Thailand, triumphing over many 5 star resorts I came across and stayed throughout the rural northern Thailand.

My villa was furnished with a luscious king size bed and fluffy pillows. Chandelier and drapes on the ceilings gave the room its luxurious ambience. Wooden vintage door to the right opened up to an unnecessary spacious bathroom with a garden view and separated shower room and toilet. Next to the window was a man-made bathtub big enough to fit two. Order a bottle of champagne, connect your spotify to the in-room music player and you're good to go.

Walked out the glass door in front of the bed and you'd find a private small pavilion with a table where you could have afternoon tea in front of a garden. 

Oh the garden. Seldom have I walked in a private compound with such a fantastical garden, while not in size, the landscape was comparable with the castle ground gardens I've come across in Scotland and other parts of Europe. And yes, it came with a central maze. 

Get lose in the maze and find yourself wandering inside a secret garden. Only guests were allowed to enter this section, and what a privilege it was. Within the walls you would find two salt pools (a plus for me): infinity pool and stone pool. The latter of which was accessible via the balconies of Deluxe pool rooms and has had a shallow zone for toddlers. 

The hotel provided shuttle bus to various drop off locations in Pai. You can find the map and time table here. Which is plenty convenient. But if you need something more private, you can always charter a private ride/tour with the resort and you get a personal chauffeur for half the day/full day. (Tip: ask them bring you to this secret location)

As if all these were not enough, the restaurant Silhouette Bar was the cherry on top of the magnificent cake. Easily the best Western and Western fusion food you could find within 100km of vicinity of Pai.  But I think that deserves another post of its own, especially when this is where I had the best pork belly of my life.
