Puripunn Baby Grand Boutique Hotel
Travel Blogs from Chiang Mai
We had to head to the airport early to catch a flight up to Chiang Mai, which is in the more mountainous north, not far from Burma. Our first stop was the temple overlooking the city. If there was ever a doubt that I was over temples, this sealed the deal. This one was particularly touristy and particularly overrun with tourists because of the …

We played Jenga and drank Chang beer (@6.4%) for quite some time before struggling to get a cab back to hotel. Gotta buy the game. Such a ...

She had cataracts so was unfortunately blind due to the treatment she endured before the park rescued her. We were able to feed her but we had to be very careful and we weren't able to touch her face or trunk because she was quite timid but of course very strong! One thing that did strike me as odd at first for the park was that ...
... to the conclusion that all these bars must not have a kitchen and have a partnership with places that do, which for Thailand kind of makes sense. We were having so much fun here that we ended up staying the entire night into the wee hours of the morning. Thankfully the next day was a free day for us and it was all about lounging around and chilling. In the evening though we went to the famous Sunday market where they close down the main street by the old gates ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Puripunn Baby Grand Boutique Hotel Chiang Mai
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
We picked the Puripunn after reading the tripadvisor reviews.
Dear Puripann Management Team,
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.
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.
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.
