Are you searching for a unique and eco-friendly hotel that’s off the beaten path? Then it’s time to book your very own tree house hotel in Thailand!
The fabulously quirky collection of tree houses at Rabeang Pasak Tree House Resort is well worth a side-trip from Chiang Mai in the north.
This 2.5 star resort is far enough away to be off most traveler’s radars so you’ll be staying in one of Thailand’s best kept secrets! Read on and see if it’s the adventure for you…
Rabeang Pasak Tree House
Although Rabeang Pasak Tree House is a resort it isn’t high end luxury. It’s more of a quirky, super friendly family-run ‘guest house’ set in an enchanting teak forest.
You get to choose your own uniquely handcrafted tree house to call home! You’ll be ‘perched’ high up in the trees with birds and monkeys for company but you’ll still enjoy your modern comforts. Take that Tarzan!
Is This For Me?
The tree houses are designed for:
- Independent travelers
- Adventurous honeymooners
- Families – family of 6 is OK – try the Star Family Tree House
4.5 out of 4 on Trip Advisor. Your tree house is a comfy cottage beautifully carved from native wood and bamboo with a private bathroom and open air shower. Each tree house has a balcony where you can relax and enjoy the peaceful solitude.
How to Save Money!
FLY – The cheapest time to fly to Thailand is the Monsoon Season from July to October. Luckily the best time to visit the north is September and October when it’s refreshingly cooler and dryer than the south. You can check out cheap flights here>>
STAY – The price of accommodation at Rabeang Pasak Tree House can vary wildly between seasons plus you are paying more for the quirky factor. Expect prices between US$80-$145 per night. You can check out the current accommodation costs here>>

What is the Highest Tree House? Tamarind Tree House!
The Tamarind’s stairs are creaky with a few holes here and there so this is a tree house definitely designed for the adrenaline junkie!
What Activities are on Offer?
You’ll have free use of bikes (they are creaky) so you can cycle to the nearby attractions that are interesting (but not amazing): Bat Cave, Stalagmite Cave, Red Sand, Sunset Point, Temple and waterfall.
Free use of fishing rods for a spot of fishing in the stream that runs between the tree houses. This stream creates a natural pool for idyllic swimming and you can stay fit hiking in the nearby forest. Check out Atlas Obscura for weird and wonderful things to do in Thailand>>
