Discover the secluded grace of this intimate retreat in Thailand’s far north. Puripunn Baby Grand Boutique Hotel is the ultimate luxury property, set amidst the backdrop of Chiang Mai’s rich architectural history, inspired by traditional Lanna design and fused with contemporary Oriental styles. Surrounded by the preserved gems of ancient Lanna society, the northern way of life remains in tact, as it has done for centuries. Puripunn Hotel is situated in a small soi, immersed in local heritage, giving you the chance to relish the serene ambience of the area.
Puripunn Hotel is just a few minutes’ walk from many of the top local tourist attractions, including the revered Night Bazaar, the Ping River’s shop houses, and Warorot Market and the nearby flower market. A complimentary tuk tuk shuttle service will transport you to all of these sites and more. Situated just 25 minutes from Chiang Mai airport and five minutes from the old city, this property is ideally located for your stay in the magical city of Chiang Mai.
Wat Gate itself, some six centuries old, has a deliberately skewed chedi (relic spire), politely not pointing directly at heaven. The temple museum displays a trove of artifacts from bygone Lanna life. A short riverside walk leads north of here to the Super Highway Bridge. To see more of the Ping’s leafy upper reaches, walk south down Charoenrat Road to the tour boat pier near Naowarat Bridge. Either side of the bridge stands Christian churches. Missionaries played a major role in laying the foundation for the development of Chiang Mai’s health and education system so Chiang Mai’s king allowed church building on this side of the river in 1897. The Tourism Authority of Thailand office stands just south of here. Along this stretch of Charoenrat Road, wooden paneling and gingerbread tracery distinguish rows of galleried teak buildings, most notably Six-Pole House, now occupied by the Oriental Style shop. Chief among the discretely located teak mansions is the filigree edifice built for the Bombay Borneo Company, a British firm that installed northern Thailand’s first swimming pool. Masonry Chinese-style shop houses, too, retain original features, such as lucky decorative motifs on their whitewashed stucco walls. Conservation-minded owners have since converted some of these romantic old structures into restaurants, boutiques and antiques emporia. After dark, souvenir hunters head to the hectic Night Bazaar. For a more authentic Lanna experience, cross the Ping over the footbridge by Wat Gade, which ends in the midst of Gad Waroros – a traditional Northern-style open-air market. Under a forest of umbrellas, this maze of stalls hawks everything from farm produce to clothing and ceramics. But it’s the adjacent all-night flower market*, Gad Ton Lamyai, that most tingles the senses, filling the black velvet air with color, commotion and fragrance. * Ton-Lamyai Market, adjacent to Wararos Market, is the biggest flower market in Chiang Mai.
The hotel has 30 rooms designed to complement the proximate natural aesthetics of Wat Gate while respecting the time-honored techniques of northern architects. Homely and refined, you will feel at ease in this enigmatic property. Rooms are spacious, with high ceilings and wooden floors.
Each room has its own terrace with oversize cozy bench overlooking the pool and a colonial inspired easy chair. The terrace is a favorite place for guests to sit back and relax all day long.
