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.

Car: Recommended

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.


Manager info

About: 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.
