A place in Pai specifically designed for budget backpackers to have the most amazing time while enjoying the best view and at only 800 meters from the centre.

When you arrive and see the WORLD FIRST budget backpacker resort, circus school and off road dirt bike school you will never want to leave

Tropical Resort is a backpacker’s paradise with a 180 degree view across the beautiful valley; this stunning location is one of the most special areas in Pai. Close to the heart of Pai, Tropical Resort offers guests a warm Thai welcome, friendly service, and a relaxing atmosphere for you to enjoy yourself.

Our large reception area has a cosy lounge and restaurant with an amazing view, and here you can find free tourist information, attraction bookings, free WIFI, communal computer, TV, DVD player and games. The on-site restaurant offers traditional Thai and Western food, as well as fresh fruit and yogurt shakes.

In the centre of the resort you can take a ride on the ferris wheel in order to take in some wonderful views of the surrounding area. Towards the back of the resort you can relax in our view point hall, great for reclining in a hammock or enjoying dinner with a beautiful view.

Tropical resort offers three types of accommodation, bungalow with bathroom, bungalow with shared bathroom and dorm rooms. The room are fitted with queen size beds and hot showers. Every bungalow features amazing views of the beautiful surroundings and, because of this, many customers choose to eat breakfast in bed.

Having so much going on at the resort means it’s a great place to meet new friends and have a fun.
Prices are per person per night.

When leaving either bus station walk left along walking street until you get to Wat pakam temple on your left.

Turn down the small street until you get to the river.

You will see the small bridge in front of you(no motor bikes aloud)

After walking over the bridge you will have Indiana cottage on your left and Pai nai fun guesthouse on your right, walk forward between the two guesthouse on the small path 500 meters following the signs until you reach us.

During rainy season sometimes this bridge is closed because of high levels of water in the river.


Ask anyone where bamboo bar or don't cry bar is and you will be pointed the right way.

After you see the bars on your left take the first left and follow the road about 800 meters until you see the sign on the left for the resort.

Located Near

Situated on a small hill only 800 meters from the town centre there is nowhere in Pai this close to the town that can match the view you will get to enjoy.

Tropical Resort is within walking distance from Pai centre, where you can explore the shopping, restaurants and bars that the small town has to offer (A free shuttle bus to town is available.)
