The Story Behind Chiang Mai’s Puripunn Baby Grand Boutique Hotel

April 27, 2015 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , ,

Puripunn Baby Grand Boutique Hotel is a small, family-run hotel in a quiet area of Chiang Mai. Created in the style of old world charm and nobility reminiscent of the King Rama V era, the Puripunn is infused with nam jai, Thai for “warm hospitality from the heart.”

The hotel owners, Att and Sineenard (Koy) Viravaidhya, created the hotel to reflect Chiang Mai’s heritage and great culture, mixed it with their own style, and made it become a home for their family, guests and the people who work there. They believe that in making their staff and guests happy as a first priority, good business will follow. Att and Koy created Puripunn with love and passion because it’s not only a place for them to do business, but it’s also their home. Many of the people work with the hotel since its inception nine years ago.
The hotel is named after the local temple, Wat Gate, and located on the banks of the Ping River. Before transportation shifted from river to road nearly a century ago, this community was a culturally diverse trading hub of Chiang Mai. The hotel breathes an atmosphere of the ancient Lanna Kingdom and shows the styles of prosperous Chinese merchants and European colonials.
