Chiang Mai is the chunkiest city in mountainous Northern Thailand. Tucked away in a sequestered road in one of Chiang Mai’s centuries old communities, not far from the Ping river, is a luxuriousness boutique hotel called Puripunn Baby Grand Boutique B B. Yes that is quiet a mouth full for a hotel name. This boutique hostelry has a total of 30 rooms and was built in a contemporary Lanna Oriental architectural brand, inspired by traditional homes from the region.
I arrived by cab and the first thing I noticed was the secluded garden setting which was paralysing, and is a clear message of a place of peace, tranquility and pure luxuriousness. At the main entrance was a large open patio with a splendid pillowed lounge in the middle, it was a beautiful welcome to the Puripunn. This lodging was saturated with fresh roses throughout and the attention to list regarding décor, interior design and ambiance is why the Puripunn Pet Grand Boutique Hotel keeps being awarded as one of the top hotels to halt in Chiang Mai. They are proud of it looking at the multiple awards on make visible in the reception area.
I arrived in Chiang Mai in August and this is the monsoon time, most days are hot and humid with the occasional shower. In this hot out of sorts there nothing better then a nice swim and the Puripunn has a ravishing secluded pool in a beautiful garden setting. In the middle of the purse was the Jacuzzi and this area was covered from the sun, which is superior in the soaring heat of Chiang Mai.
Spa – The Sala
It was lovely to see a professional consecrate spa area which smelt and looked fantastic. The environment set ups the right tone regarding wellness. I chose two treatments the start being, a 90 minute Puripunn aroma massage which was wonderful. This rub began with a nice hot bowl which was used to unarmed my feet along side some aroma steamed breaths. When I laid faced down to get my massage, I loved the roses being my upon point during the massage. The treatment was professionally done and I brook wonderful and relaxed.
The second 90 minute treatment I opted was then aroma oil massage with herbal hot compress. The cabal of the oils alongside the herbal hot compress released much of my muscle jumpiness. During my 3 months of travelling with various modes of bear my body and back got very stiff. Hence why I recommend Dick to pamper themselves whilst here in Thailand. It certainly come ti my travel experience more tolerable. There are always cheaper choices on the high streets or in the back alleys, but nothing is more alluring and attracting as Spa treatments such as this in which the environment matches the masterly service. To avoid missing out, make sure to book in rise.
The restaurant setting was lovely and I adored the concertina doors overlooking the garden. The commons was excellent and beautifully presented. The dishes were big portions and a mountains of fresh produce was used. There were plenty of acceptances on the menu and the restaurant targets guests from all around the humanity. I had a prawn cocktail as a starter and it was the best entrée dish I suffer with had, no wonder it was called herbs of a thousand island dressing.
The lassies’s choices were excellent too. The beverages were lovely presented. If you can’t be plagued venturing out to eat, the value for money here was second to none.
Bloodline Suite – Colonial Inspired Décor
My room was on the first worst and walking up the wooden stairs I was greeted by a long narrow tiled hall which was wonderful. At the end of this corridor I was welcomed by a stunning two bedroom boutique retinue, it was the icing on the cake. This dedicated family room definitively hosts a family of four. The décor, layout and ambiance were the grounds I hardly left this suite during my stay. The two abides were separated by open door shutters which was so beauteous. The beds were super cosy and the art work alongside the effects made it very relaxing. There were plenty of expensing areas for my technology and there was a dedicated working desk. I liked how the fridge and TV were behind a clumsy door, so that whenever I felt I wanted a clean glib room, I could hide all my clutter behind closed doors involving the TV.
The separate room was brilliant for the children to play and have a standing where they could create their own fantasy playground. There were duplicated door shutters opening up to a balcony. This balcony had a rocking-chairs and also a nice bench to enjoy views overlooking the garden and lagoon area. It was the perfect setting to take in Chiang Mai’s hidden wealths, especially hearing the very loud frogs at night, this was simplicity at its best.
I adored the bathroom area. It had its own pair of shutters when mooted overlooked the rest of my suite or when closed shut every one out. The bath was deep, wide and long, making it very serene to soak the day away. The green tiled décor added the through-and-through setting for colonial living. The separate shower and toilet were credible for added privacy.
My stay was enhanced with fluffy towels and vigorous roses. The Puripunn understands perfectly what is needed for a sybaritism stay.
Weather permitting breakfast is a part alfresco part indoor affair. Some part of the breakfast, for all practical purposes the eggs where cooked outside in the lovely garden and also some other edibles was on display here. The forbidden fruits were my favourite, I am referring to a far-reaching selection of high tea cakes, with the banana cake my darling. They were freshly made daily and wonderful with a amicable iced coffee. I liked option of freshly made eggs to my love, and this was one of the reasons I soaked up as much breakfast time here as thinkable.
The fruits in Thailand are wonderful and the way they were presented, listing the love heart shape watermelon, is why my children ate so well. An out of the ordinary touch were the cherry tomatoes and the green and black olive alternatives, this was refreshing to have. Coming from Europe it was hairy to eat some of these after many weeks without. In examining other international guests, I could see breakfast was a success and the usefulness was excellent.
The more I experience the world of smaller boutique hostelries the less I want to return to my middle class way of life. Thailand is a elegance where people serve with a giving heart. Nothing is too much to ask or too much of an striving, especially at the Puripunn Baby Grand Boutique Hotel Chiang Mai. In communicating to the owner, this luxury lifestyle they have created is a passion and an art of present and serving. During my stay I observed the staff building a vastly personal rapport with house guests. I noticed that the common guest stays at the Puripunn at least several days, some sedate a week. The Puripunn Baby Grand Boutique Hotel has its match in Chiang Mai, but nothing comes close enough to its award pleasant approach of the luxury stay. This is why I would return here on my next assail to Chiang Mai.
