Origins

Once an important stopover along mule caravan routes between ancient Chinese Empire and the coast of Burma, the kingdom of Lan Na Thai — literally ‘Million Rice Field's, was established when local Thai princes rose to prominence in the region in the 13th century. Chiang Mai was founded as the new capital of the ancient Lanna Thai kingdom. The owners of the Puripunn are descendants of this spellbinding Northern Thai kingdom, and as such, want to share the many charming traditions and enchanting aspects of Lanna Thai culture with their guests. Puripunn literally means we share our home-town with you. The word ‘Puri’ comes from the word ‘buri’ which means town or city and ‘punn’ means to share.

The Review

The concept of this beautiful hotel was to recreate the sense of being in a noble home. Although Chiang Mai was never colonized, there are architectural influences that depict the British colonial era. Take a step back in time and enjoy the traditional Lanna designs fused with colonial style in each room. The traditional-style dark wood furniture has all been custom made in Chiang Mai and Burma and combined with brightly coloured silk fabrics, portrays a classy and elegant feel throughout the hotel.Every room is generous in size, with high ceilings, wooden floors, a large Jacuzzi bath and its own terrace/balcony, overlooking the pool. Guests can have a leisurely swim, surrounded by lush trees and foliage or treat themselves with a massage in the hotel’s spa. The Puripunn has an impressive lounge, home to sofas and cushions that have been beautifully upholstered and guests can peacefully relax in an aesthetically beautiful environment.Eating at the Puripunn hotel is a culinary delight. The menu options are creative and the chef is very passionate in offering genuine Thai cuisine.  Each plate is generous in size and the colours, presentation, quality and taste of the food is of a great standard. As a way to differentiate themselves from the other hotels in the area, they have created a Thai version of high-tea – a bountiful selection of sweet and savoury Thai treats, served on quintessential English china and silver tea-ware. The Puripunn is a husband and wife ownership operation, and as a result the service has been extremely carefully curated to provide a very friendly, attentive and homely service experience that has a ‘loving’ touch.
