I stayed at Darling View in January 2011 with my boyfriend, and we absolutely loved it. Yes it’s rustic but this adds to the charm and character of the place. You may well be joined by the odd bug or too as people have previously reported, but your resident gecko will sort that out, so no troubles there.
Peter and Darling were absolutely delightful. We had hired a car and were about to set off to travel some of the beautiful Mae Hong Son Loop but we had, due to being overcome by the contagious Pai chill out vibe, not sorted out getting a map from anywhere. Peter, on hearing this, got straight on his computer and printed off a huge map of the whole loop, even laminating it for us, and proceeded to give us some great advice on where to stop off. He was right, Ban Rak Thai, is a beautifully serene and stunning place to visit.
This was typical of our host’s willingness to do whatever they can to ensure their guests have the best time possible.
There are some reviews where people have mentioned that there was no food available but there always was when we were there. Yes it can take a while to be delivered, but you don’t go to Pai to be in a hurry, you go there to relax and take it easy!
The location is stunning, with the balcony to our hut having uninterrupted views of the Pai valley. Our hut was basic with mattresses on the floor, which we pulled on top of each other to give an extremely comfortable cushioned bed. Everything was clean and all facilities worked just fine.
You don’t go to Darling View if you are expecting hotel style comfort and room service on demand. You do go to Darling View if you want to relax in beautiful natural surroundings, relax on huge balconies overlooking stunning scenery, and benefit from the advice of very knowledgeable and helpful hosts.
