Historical Traveler Reviews Puripunn Baby Grand Boutique Hotel Chiang Mai
Une merveilleuse oasis où le personnel et le service sont merveilleux
Après avoir lu les commentaires sur TripAdvisor, on avait choisi le Puripunn et on n'aurait pas pu tomber mieux. C'est un petit hôtel à l'atmosphère intime, juste à la périphérie de la ville-même.
C'est un véritable havre de paix et de tranquillité avec de beaux jardins et une piscine très agréable. A notre arrivée, on a été accueillis par des employés sympas et compétents.
Les chambres sont propres et bien décorées en style Lanna, très élégantes. Elles sont climatisées et en plus il y a un ventilateur à pales au plafond et un petit balcon donnant sur le jardin.
Elles ont tout le confort moderne, à l'exception d'une bouilloire pour se faire du thé, mais on peut demander de l'eau chaude très facilement. Tous les jours, ils nous apportaient des fruits et de nouvelles fleurs.
Les propriétaires, des jeunes, vivent sur place et se sont entourés d'une équipe dont l'unique souci est que votre séjour soit exceptionnel.
C'est un hôtel récent et pas très connu des chauffeurs de taxis du coin, mais on peut se procurer des cartes de visite à la réception avec une carte de la ville et un plan d'accès en anglais et en thai.
On recommande cet hôtel vivement et sans réserve.
Un petit refuge caché au milieu de l'agitation ambiante de Chiang Mai.
Mon mari et moi rentrons tout juste de nos vacances à Chiang Mai. Nous avons énormément apprécié notre séjour au Puri Punn, c'est pourquoi nous tenons à faire part de notre expérience.
D'abord, cet hôtel est une sorte de sanctuaire au milieu de la folle agitation ambiante de Chiang Mai, qui ne vous parvient ni aux yeux ni aux oreilles quand on est au Puri Punn, ensuite les chambres sont joliment meublées et les salles de bain immenses, propres et reposantes, et enfin le personnel comme les propriétaires sont les plus chaleureux et les plus accommodants que l'on puisse trouver - c'est l'ensemble de tous ces facteurs qui rend le Puri Punn aussi exceptionnel.
Nous sommes vraiment tombés sous le charme du concept d'hôtel "personnalisé", car l'atmosphère y est très intime et ils ont plein de petites touches personnelles qu'on ne trouve pas dans les hôtels de plus grande taille.
Nous adorions y prendre le thé et le goûter l'après-midi, et la cuisine est des meilleures. Nous nous sommes aussi fait faire des massages au Puri Punn, après, nous étions comme sur un nuage, frais et dispos, complètement régénérés.
Il n'est pas loin du centre-ville ni du marché nocturne, et juste à 50 ou 100 m du fleuve Ping. De plus, l'hôtel propose un service de tuk-tuk qui vous emmène où vous voulez, alors en un mot, N'HESITEZ PAS, ALLEZ-Y !!!
Eine wundervolle Oase mit exzellentem Service und Personal
Wir stießen nach dem Lesen der Kritiken auf Trip Advisor auf das Puripunn. Wir hätten keine bessere Wahl treffen können. Das Hotel war klein, hatte eine intime Atmosphäre und lag am Stadtrand. Es war eine Oase der Ruhe und des Friedens, mit wunderschönen Gärten und einem schönen Swimmingpool. Bei der Ankunft wurden wir von freundlichem und professionellem Personal begrüßt. Die Zimmer waren sauber und schön im sehr eleganten Lanna-Stil eingerichtet. Sie waren klimatisiert und es gab zusätzlich noch einen Deckenventilator. Vom Balkon aus konnte man auf den Garten blicken. Das Zimmer war normal ausgestattet, nur einen Wasserkocher gab es nicht. Aber man konnte nach heißem Wasser fragen. Im Zimmer waren auch jeden Tag neu frisches Obst und Blumen. Die jungen Besitzer leben auf der Anlage und sie haben Personal angestellt, das aufrichtig daran interessiert war, uns den Aufenthalt zu erleichtern. Das Hotel war neu und die Taxifahrer kannte es zum Teil auch noch nicht. An der Rezeption gab Kartenmaterial und Wegbeschreibungen auf Englisch und Thai. Wir können dieses Hotel ohne zu zögern nur empfehlen.
Hidden Sanctuary Within Bustling Chiang Mai
My husband and I just returned home from our trip to Chiang Mai. We loved staying at the Puripunn so much that we just had to spread the word. It isn't just that the hotel feels like a hidden sanctuary within a bustling city you cannot hear or see when you're at the Puripunn and it isn't just that the rooms are beautifully appointed or that the bathrooms are enormous, clean and relaxing or that the staff as well as the owners are the warmest and most accommodating people you could ever meet... it's the combination of all of those things that make the Puripunn so special. We have fallen in love with the concept of a "boutique hotel" because it's very intimate and it has personalized touches you won't find in any of the big resorts. We loved having high tea there and the food is second to none. We also booked thai massages at the Puripunn and when all was said and done, we floated away feeling refreshed and renewed. It's not far from downtown or the Night Market... just two or three blocks from the Ping River... and the hotel has a tuk-tuk to take you wherever you want to go... so... GO, GO, GO!!!
A wonderful oasis with excellent service and staff
We picked the Puripunn after reading the tripadvisor reviews.
We could not have chosen better. The hotel is small and intimate just outside the main city. It is an oasis of peace and tranquility, with beautiful gardens and a lovely swimming pool. On arrival we were greeted by friendly but professional staff.
The rooms are clean and well decorated in Lanna Style which is very elegant. These are air-conditioned and there is also a ceiling fan, and there is a balcony overlooking the garden. There are the usual in room facilities except for a kettle, but hot water is easily available by request . Fresh fruit and flowers were left every day of our stay. The young owners live on site and have recruited staff who genuinely want to help make your stay a special experience. The hotel is new and not well known by the local taxis however there are cards available at reception with a map and directions in English and Thai. We have no reservations about highly recommending this hotel
So in love with you, so in love with Puripunn

An amazing sanctuary
The Puripunn was recommended to us by a work colleague who had just spent his honeymoon there. Wow what an incredible recommendation. My husband and I were looking for a special place to celebrate my 50th birthday - the Puripunn was more special than I could have imagined. The staff is incredibly and genuinely warm and always looking to accommodate your every wish. The rooms (we were upgraded to a baby suite) are beautifully decorated in Lanna style with all the modern conveniences (including access to work via internet - my blackberry worked very well - unfortunately). Food was excellent, location relative to all points of interest in Chiang Mai was excellent (far enough away from the noise and bustling crowds but close enough to walk!). Tucked away in the back alley of a major street, the Puripunn opens up like a gem when you arrive. The center courtyard is designed to immediately soothe the senses with gentle water sounds from the pool. All the rooms have balconies surrounding the courtyard which provide a relaxing location for a before dinner drink. The hotel is relatively new and as a result the entire property, including the rooms are immaculate. Regarding the dining experience at Puripunn, I cannot stress enough how delicious the meals were. We are vegetarians and the Puripunn designed an incredible dinner just for my husband and I that was exquisite! An incredible spread despite the fact that we were the only vegetarians staying at the hotel! Finally, try the spa and massages available on site - amazing and just too wonderful to describe. If you want a special place to stay while visiting Chiang Mai with the equivalent standards of a 5 star hotel except with more privacy and a wonderful staff, then the Puripunn is the place for you.
An absolute gem
N&S Pirani, Seattle Wa
As the gracious owners told us, Puripunn literally means 'land of sharing', and we can honestly say that we have not only shared some wonderful memories in Chiang Mai, but with the hotel and staff at Puripunn.
Conveniently nestled amongst old and narrow streets of Chiang Mai, the hotel is a true work of art. The unique blend of Lanna and Colonial style, embedded with lush tropical plants gives this precious 30 room boutique hotel a feeling of home. The guest rooms are designed with utmost elegance and style - from the light fixtures and artwork to the presentation of the fruit basket, not one detail is missed. Making ordinary things extraordinary, is a mantra that is alive everywhere you look.
However, it is the people that ultimately make the place. The staff at Puripunn are most kind and forever smiling, and will go out of their way to accommodate the smallest of requests. (At the slightest of hints that I wanted to learn how to make a Thai dish or two, arrangements were made for me to have a one-to-one cooking class with the chef). Service is impeccable!
We never missed an opportunity to dine at the restaurant (the chef uses only fresh ingredients picked up daily from the market) as the menu included foods that are found in local Thai homes and not in typical restaurants.
The 'High Tea' was a wonderful treat and definitely recommended as well as the spa treatments! Two great ways to spoil yourself.
We have with us some lovely memories and look forward to going back to Puripunn sometime soon.
What a find !!!
Firstly, the Puripunn's website accurately reflects this beautiful boutique hotel. When so many websites exaggerate the charms of accommodation I can assure websearchers, with confidence, that the Puripunn website is totally reliable, even understated.
There's an old saying that people make the place and nothing is truer in relation to the charming 30-room Hotel Puripunn. The owners, managers and staff - without exception, thoughtful, helpful, friendly, and by the time we left, just like family.
My travel companion and I were looking for a break away from the rigours of busy lives and Puripunn turned out to be just the place for it. The hotel is quiet and peaceful, the rooms calming, the garden cool. There wasn't a single thing we could have wished for. The physical characteristics alone - the location, the design gesture at Lanna style architecture, the raw silk drapes, the fresh cotton sheets, the ceiling fans (+ aircon if you want it), the size and layout of the bedrooms and bathrooms, the welcoming fruit and fresh flowers - are more than enough to have us planning a return visit. Not to mention the pool, the spa with wonderful manicures, pedicures, aromatherapy massages - bliss !! And not pricey. The breakfast, dining and bar areas are utterly charming and discreetly located. We were also privileged to be shown through the hotel and there wasn't a room which the most seasoned of travellers (and I count my friend and I in this group) wouldn't be happy to stay in for a month - the suite with its own pool was also something to behold!
But above all, the people - they made it very hard to leave.
Altogether a wonderful place to stay, close to main attractions and offering assistance to discover Chiang Mai and reach those destinations further away. Very highly recommended.
Fantastic hotel, warm & professional staff
This is a lovely hotel, recently opened, tucked away behind some of the more fun shopping and river dining streets in Chiang Mai (it is quite close to the Riverside restaurant, as well as to the Night Bazzar even though it is not in the 'old town'). We found its location great, with lots to discover nearby. We received a generous discount due to the newness of the hotel as its rack rates would have been too expensive for us. We booked directly with the hotel - when we asked about any possible discounts, they gave us a special that on their website was stated to be for Thai residents only, a nice touch.
The rooms are beautifully styled with a chic 'colonial' aspect and lots of traditional Thai touches (fresh flowers and fruit, teak floors and silk cushions, etc). Athough our room was not huge it was roomy enough even with a baby cot, with a gorgeous bathroom and patio area across from the very attractive pool. The food from the cafe was quite good although rather pricey. The website is accurate in depicting the hotel's look and feel. Housekeeping made-up our room in the morning and afternoon, with fresh towels each time - another great touch.
The staff were extremely corteous and helpful; for example, the hotel has a tuk-tuk that will take you to various points in Chiang Mai at no charge, and for those places too far for the hotel tuk-tuk (so that it remains available for others) the hotel's tuk-tuk driver will take you to a convenient place (e.g., the Night Bazzar) and then negotiate a good price with a regular tuk-tuk driver to wherever else in Chiang Mai you wish to go.
We were travelling with our 8-month old baby and felt confident enough in the hotel staff and management to go out each night without the baby. The babysitters all were from the hotel housekeeping staff (as is common in Thailand) and were excellent. It was simple to arrange a sitter with very short notice, which we appreciated. This gave us the opportunity to explore various night markets (the Saturday Walking Street market in particular was great fun - mostly locals and a ton of gorgeous Thai crafts/instruments/clothes and of course food!) The hotel also arranged a taxi to take us up to the hills above Chiang Mai for a reasonable rate for the half-day and the driver was extremely corteous and a very calm driver (again a plus with a baby in tow).
Our only point of issue with the hotel is that each time we booked a service (the tuk-tuk or a babysitter) we had to fill in a form that included at the bottom a quite onerous disclaimer stating essentially that we would not hold the hotel responsible for any problems or injuries whatsoever. While we (my husband and I are both solicitors) understood the thought behind this clause, when one is entrusting one's baby to a child minder it does give a chill. One wonders how necessary it is to adequately protect the hotel from spurious claims and whether the hotel ought to re-think its solicitor's advice on this point.
Overall this is a supremely romantic hotel in a nice part of Chiang Mai; an alternative to the uber modern Chedi that we highly recommend.
