There is something magical about a mountain environment. Phu Chaisai is a reminder that mindful living with nature is possible, even in this modern age. Guests live simply, in comfort, and close to nature. The Resort 33 rooms’ design is harmonious with its surroundings. The fresh mountain air is cleansing, and reduces the need for air conditioning. The unique accommodation and overall concept of “less is more” create a genuine opportunity for guests to immerse themselves into a natural rhythm and environment. Luxury was intended for the spirit and comes from nature: a sunrise across the horizon, the unspoiled mountain fresh air, the sound of the forest...

Your Host & The Team
“Phu Chaisai, literally translated means ‘Mountain of Clear Heart’. It is one of the first boutique resorts in Thailand, and the first to incorporate lifestyle and wellness into the holiday experience. It has its own unique, rustic style, and exemplifies the best of Northern Thai hospitality.”
“Built on a hill overlooking several valleys and hectares of organic plantations, this mountain resort has 33 rooms alongside elephants, buffaloes and horses.”
