About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 5.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Paya Villa is a luxurious holiday villa situated at the picturesque Mae Ping River, just 20 minutes drive from the city centre, 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, space (1,500 square meters) and homeliness of a private residence.

Equipped with all modern amenities and comfort, the villa is delightfully furnished in contemporary Thai style, with solid rosewood floor, teak furniture, high ceilings and air conditioners.

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.

Catering is very flexible: the villa provides two separate fully-equipped kitchens (in traditional Thai style these are 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. Outside catering is also easy to arrange.

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

Live-in maid, house chauffeur, and in-house manager will be available to provide you with assistance at your request.

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.

About Prye Wongsirimana

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.

This house is amazing! It is actually more beautiful than the pictures on line. The staff was fantastic too. They helped us manuvere our way through the grocery store and answered all our questions . We had the house keeper make us breakfast every morning and dinner one night. The food was delicious. As stated, the house is twenty minutes outside the city. The airport wasn't a bad drive at all. It was a longer drive to activities on the north side of the city, but a shorter drive to activities on the south side of the city. We hired the driver for several of the days and it work out perfectly. I would definitely recommend staying at this house.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a taster of what we were to experience a few weeks before we arrived when we were asked if we wanted any trips booking. They were researched for us, options provided and then booked. The service continued to be impeccable throughout our stay with a driver and guide available anytime as well as an excellent on site chef. She easily provided the best food during our 4 week stay in the Far East and, despite our best intentions before arriving, we ate at the villa 6 of our 7 nights.

The property is a delight and is maintained at a very high standard. The rooms are large and airy and beautifully decorated.

I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone. It's just a shame it is 7000 miles away.

2nd visit to riverside Villa in Chiang Mai

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay in the Villa situated on the banks of the Ping river south of Chiang Mai. We really appreciated the hospitality offered to us by Khun Poh and Khun Kvan. Some short characteristics - The property is located in a beautiful area with a lot of possibilities for visits to the surrounding area by foot or bike. - The villa is made in an excellent architecture and design with top quality materials and nice furniture and auxiliary textiles, all very well maintained, - The villa offers access to many good and useful things such as road bikes as well as high speed internet. - The local market, offering possibilities for shopping of food, is only 15 minutes away by foot or 5 minutes by bike We are looking forward to our next visit and we have already recommended our friends to stay at the nice Villa next time they have plans to visit Chiang Mai. Thank you for a nice stay!

My wife, 4.5 month year old baby girl and I spent 3 nights at Paya Villa. I cannot imagine a more superb place to stay in Chiang Mai. Paya Villa is, put simply, a 5 star + establishment. The pictures, believe it or not, fail to do it full justice. Paya Villa is incredibly well designed and exquisitely decorated and furnished. The on-site maid and caretaker are beyond sweet and helpful and made our stay thoroughly enjoyable. Indeed, a brand new air conditioner, which was leaking, was repaired promptly. We wanted a home away from home. Somewhere that provided us the space and amenities of home but some of the extras (i.e., pool, on-site maid and caretaker etc.) that a hotel would provide. Paya Villa delivered and then some. We are already planning our return with two other families. I would say Paya Villa is ideal for a family vacation, honeymoon type vacation and/or group vacation. We would highly recommend Paya Villa and hope others may enjoy this gem as much as we did. We cannot wait to go back!

The villa is located right on the Ping riverside in Hang Dong district, south of Chiang Mai city center. Baan Tawai, Chiang Mai's famous home decoration shopping street is just five minutes drive away. Driving toward the city center is so pleasant and easy, just using the riverside road going upstream for 15 kilometers or 10 miles. Along this route, there are crossing points to Chiang Mai's three ring roads. From these connecting ring roads, all of Chiang Mai tourist attractions, including elephant camps, tiger farm, zip-lining areas, golf courses, and much more, are within 45 minutes or less away.
