Property Description




welcome to our magical garden on the hill ( Suandoi ) !!

If we are lucky enough to have you as our guest you will soon become a part of our Suandoi family.

We're within easy walking distance (15-20 minute walk, 5 minutes on scooter)

Our hostel is hidden away and surrounded by the amazing Pai nature, you will be able to hear the sound of the wildlife and flowing river as you chillax in our tree house or on one of our many hammocks that are dotted around our garden and enjoy our amazing view of the Temple on the Hill (big white Buddha)

Many of our guests like us truly believe Suandoi is a special place to stay with our laid back easy going atmosphere. We just want to make new friends who we can share a few drinks with during happy hour at our cozy hostel bar, play some volleyball as we fire up our Barbecue and enjoy the sunset listening to our favorite tunes and yes you can plug in your music

Whether you're looking to have just one or two drinks before hitting Pai town or looking to blackout at the hostel bar you have nothing to fear as we have got you.

After a long day enjoying the sights & sounds of Pai by driving around on your moped or doing one of our amazing tours we offer at the hostel you will appreciate returning back home to our wonderful heaven where you can also enjoy our amazing Thai and western dishes at our Suandoi restaurant, food is cheap and seriously tasty.

During your stay you may also be lucky enough to have free yoga classes in our garden if we have a yoga teacher staying with us but If not we offer free yoga mats and you can also pay for a traditionally Thai massages in our massage studio (they are a great way to recover from a hangover also)

We make sure that you'll feel safe and welcome here. When you've been on the road all day long, seeing sights and all those freakin’ waterfalls, it's cool to have a nice scene at the hostel where you can have some beers, talk and make friends. This will make your stay memorable! Many a traveler stayed quite a bit longer than primarily intended.

    Amazing place to stay in Pai. Close walk or drive to the Main Street for all shopping, drinking and eating needs. The place itself it peaceful and quiet. The staff are very helpful and even cancelled my nights stay when my motorbike broke down for no charge. I recommend hiking around this area. No signs or anything, just explore! There will be no tourists around you.

    Nice, quiet hostel just outside of the main walking streets. Aircon was broken, but staff accommodated us with a good fan and gave us a deal. Grounds have beautiful ponds/gardens, however the furniture could have been cleaner and better kept. Cafe at the hostel is open all day and serves great lassis. Room and bathroom were decently clean. Has motorbikes to rent and can connect you with bus to Chiang Mai. One major complaint is that the hostel staff made us wait in the rain for the bus...

    Very Good

    17 Jul 2018
    Suandoi resort is a nice, family run business. It has many ponds, a badminton/volleyball court and bar on site. Staff was helpful in arranging day trips/transportation services. Many bugs in the shared bathroom, which is normal because Pai is all in nature. We had a private twin room with a fan which was just what we needed. There is not much of an atmosphere to meet people and the town is about a 15 minute walk away. Breakfast is very basic and staff gives you a free smoothie if you review.

    Ants everywhere in our room, uncomfortable bed, long hike from the city at least 15 mins of muddy roads. Breakfast was pretty good though, and view from our room wasn't bad but overall a bad experience
