We've just returned from the Puripunn, but wish we could've stayed forever. In fact, we were due to spend a couple of nights at another place in the mountains – we got up there, took one look (very chic, very Zen - very soul-less), turned to each other & said "wanna go back to Puripunn?!" It’s THAT good.
The location is great - near the city but not in it. In fact, it’s set amidst a quaint & traditional neighborhood, and we came to recognize some of the local residents after a few days. The hotel’s setting is exquisite - a feast for the senses, with countless tiny details that surprise & delight. The pool is small but perfect for relaxing (though probably not great for kids). The rooms are lovely (but get one of the more expensive ground-floor ones, with secluded porch and just a few steps from the pool). The restaurant serves wonderful and not overly expensive Thai food. The staff is friendly, attentive yet unobtrusive.
All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Its one of the few times we felt we got everything we wanted, and felt entirely happy to pay the bill. All too often one stays at an "exclusive" or "boutique" hotel that fails to deliver. In contrast, the Puripunn exceeded our expectations. We’d certainly go back there without hesitation.
