About Reverie Siam Resort

Reverie Siam Resort is a five-star accommodation decorated in traditional Thai and vintage colonial style. Back in the early 20th century, Western explorers would venture off to uncover the exotic East. At Reverie Siam Resort, these adventures are portrayed as memories and dreams, and are reflected in the resort’s distinctive décor. From occidental antiques like French armoires and gramophones to vintage textiles and 20th century literature books, the theme of time travel resonates throughout the property. What’s also special is that no room is the same. Each of the 20 units is arranged so that every guest can experience a truly unique stay.

Getting Here

Chiang Mai is the closest city nearby. With that being said, this is where most travellers begin their journey to Pai from.

Now the most common method of reaching Pai is by bus. Visitors can take a 3-hour, air-conditioned ride from Chiang Mai’s Arcade Bus Station for as little as 160 baht/ticket. Do keep in mind that mountain roads are extremely winding and you might experience some motion sickness. In other words, it may be in your best interest to carry some Gravol in your purse/backpack. From Pai Bus Station, Reverie Siam Resort offers complimentary shuttle rides to the hotel.

Alternatively, you can take a scenic plane ride to Pai instead. The only airline that operates from Chiang Mai is Kan Airlines. As a result, flying is a little more expensive and can cost approximately 2,200 baht. Prices may be a tad cheaper though depending on seasonality.

Check-In

As mentioned above, check-in begins at 2:00PM. However, we arrived much earlier and our room was not ready yet. Luckily, Reverie Siam Resort’s Silhouette restaurant was open and we enjoyed a nice relaxing lunch there while waiting for our room.

Deluxe Mountain View Room

The Mountain Deluxe View room features one king-size bed, rain shower, and a bath. There is an outdoor balcony perfect for lounging on a lazy afternoon and each room has a view of the surrounding lush mountains.

When I was originally researching on where to stay in Pai, I came across Reverie Siam Resort’s gorgeous villas with private gardens and outdoor pavilions. I especially fell in love with pictures of the bathroom where guests can take a bath whilst admiring the garden sceneries. Unfortunately, I do believe the villas were all booked during out visit. Regardless, my friend and I both had a lovely stay in the Deluxe Mountain View room.

I would say that Reverie Siam Resort definitely isn’t your typical luxury resort. I loved the small details like the brass accents and porcelain-like sink. All throughout the room you can find pleasant little surprises and it really feels like you have taken a trip back in time.

Outdoor Pools

At Reverie Siam Resort, there are two public outdoor pools: the Infinity Pool and the Stone Pool. Pictured above is the Infinity Pool and as you can see, it has expansive views of gorgeous mountain scenes.

The Stone Pool spans across 25 meters and is fantastic for those who are looking to get a more serious workout. There is a shallow zone too so don’t worry if you are planning to bring kids along. Guests staying in Deluxe Pool rooms also have easy access to the pool via their rooms.

While waiting for our room during check-in, we decided to try lunch at Silhouette.

I myself went for the A’olio, which was a pasta dish with grilled salmon filet. My friend, on the other hand, had the Beef Burger. On top of that, we also shared one Prosciutto Pizza. The food was absolutely phenomenal to say the least. Not to mention, we had a lovely courtyard garden view as we enjoyed our lunch.

Breakfast is actually complimentary as well and takes place every morning at Silhouette.

What’s Nearby

In addition to free shuttles to and from Pai Bus Station, Reverie Siam Resort offers complimentary rides to Pai Walking Street as well. I highly, highly recommend checking this night market out. In fact, I much better preferred it to those in Chiang Mai. Yes, it is much smaller, but it is also far less crowded. The street food is to die for as well so consider having lunch at the resort then dinner outside at Pai Night Market. Check out my YouTube vlog linked below.

Final Verdict

Amenities: ★★★★☆ (restaurant/bar, two pools, outdoor garden and sun terrace, and meeting/banquet facilities available to rent; no gym facilities)
Cleanliness: ★★★★★
Comfort: ★★★★★
Proximity: ★★★★☆
Quietness: ★★★★★
Safety: ★★★★★
Space: ★★★★★
Value of Price: ★★★★★
Internet Access: Complimentary

Pros

  • Hidden oasis vibes
  • Scenic riverside + mountain views
  • Complimentary shuttle services
  • Relatively close to tourist attractions sights in town

Cons

The only disadvantage I can think of is that there are no gym facilities on site. Even then, this isn’t a major issue at all as guests can simply opt for a jog along Pai River or outdoor yoga in the garden terrace.

All in all, my friend and I both thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Reverie Siam Resort. We’d actually visited in February to see Pai’s Instagram-famous lush rice paddies. Little did we know that they are barren this time of the year and September is the season to catch them in their full glory. Nonetheless, this ended up being a beautiful mistake because we got to spend more time at the resort and I can’t wait to be back again next time to experience one of their villas.

To get a better sense of what the room looks like, take a look at my latest vlog from 2:06 to 3:25. (Pai Walking Street footage begins at 3:26.)

    Wow! very nice blog on – Reverie Siam. In your blog you have nicely described about the resort. I am in love with Pai. I have been there, though have stayed in the riverside resorts. Chiang Mai is very close to my heart. Thanks for bringing back so many memories.

    I’ve heard great things about Pai and haven’t had a chance to visit. Reverie Siam Resort looks like a fabulous place to relax for a few days. I love how spacious the bedroom is. Plus, the bed looks ultra comfortable. You mentioned how this place offers complimentary shuttle rides. Do they offer the rides on an hourly basis or whenever someone requests a ride?

      Hi Jackie, there’s a set schedule for the shuttles and the resort has a complete timetable that you get upon check-in. I hope you get the chance to visit soon and when you do, don’t hesitate to book a stay here!

    How cool, I was in Pai in April last year. I stayed there for three days and toured the surroundings too. Have you been to Fluid Swimming Pool? It is a bit outside of the town but it’s very quite and peaceful place.

      Ahh I’m afraid not! We didn’t get much to anything in Pai because we were there for one night only and we could hardly leave a resort as beautiful as this. Seems like I’ll have to revisit for sure!

    Such a serene property, the welcome drink looks quite refreshing. I would love to spend a few days here.

      Thank you so much, Smita! I hope you’ll get to cross it off your list soon then!!!

    This resort is absolutely beautiful! I love the little details and that none of the rooms are the same. I think this would be a great addition to any Thailand itinerary to escape the main attractions and have a more rural or local experience. I’d definitely stay there.
