A stay here is an enriching experience, pure romantic and indulgent bliss for a most special time in Thailand.

  The Puripunn Baby Grand is a luxury 5 star boutique hotel in Chiang Mai, Thailand's major northern city which is famous for its enchanting mountainous region steeped in culture and history.  Ever since our first visit to Chiang Mai I have been mesmerised by the colourful presence of the hill tribes, and overwhelmed by their simple way of life and outgoing friendliness. Chiang Mai is the base from which to explore the exiting remote villages and take advantage of many activities such as elephant trekking, rafting, and mountain trekking.

The Puripunn Baby Grand boutique hotel is a real romantic hidden gem, located in a local Thai neighbourhood down many a side street that you would never just stumble across, but I'm delighted we did.  Situated in a heritage zone surrounded by many amazing traditional wooden buildings, this has been designed in a contemporary Lanna-oriental architectural style inspired by traditional homes found in Chang Mai and its regional villages. It is oozing with stylish character and authentic Thai charm. There are just 30 divine rooms and suites in total, giving a sophisticated yet relaxing and intimate boutique feel

 As we arrived we pulled up on the driveway and looking around me, we couldn't see much, apart from a large stonewall ahead with a small decorative entrance, behind the wall and through the little archway was the hotel itself and its lovely green courtyard style gardens. It almost had a ‘Secret Garden' feel to it in the sense that this beautiful surprise was hidden behind such a prevailing entrance.

 On arrival the staff were friendly and extremely helpful. We were greeted with refreshing fruit drinks and chilled towels, just what we needed after our journey.  We were then shown to our fabulous ground floor room looking out onto the courtyard and pool area. The rooms themselves are furnished to a very high standard, with opulent furnishings and colourful artefacts. The lavish bathroom had a sunken bath, luxury towelling and pampering toiletries. We had a patio area at the entrance to our room with a relaxing seating area, which was great to just unwind and chill out with a glass of wine and reflect on the day's memorable experiences and discoveries.

 That evening we dined in the hotel restaurant, which offered a selection of fine cuisine featuring Thai, Northern Thai and Western dishes. The restaurant itself was charming, dimly lit creating a romantic ambiance.  We sat on a lovely table up on the balcony overlooking the picturesque courtyard. The service and the food were fantastic!  We then decided to head out into Chang Mai and much to our delight were driven all the way to the night market by the hotel's complimentary tuk tuk service. This hotel is ideally located with many tourist attractions only a few minutes away- such as the romantic Ping River restaurants, shops and night markets.

 Overall this is a fabulous romantic boutique hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.  We would give anything to go back for another visit. Don't forget to mention Away without the Kids when booking!
