I've been living in Thailand for about 4 years now and I've traveled around Thailand quite a bit. The Puka Boutique Resort was one of the best places I've stayed. The resort is small, with only 6 rooms, but each of the rooms are spacious with a lounge area separate from the bedroom. The bathrooms are large and the showers was hot and powerful. There is a small back balcony and the front porch was a lovely place to sit and relax with your significant other/friends. You can tell that each room was carefully decorated using premium, locally sourced decorations. The bed was large and a little on the hard side. But the cozy feel to the whole place made up for any short comings.
There is a pool that overlooks a small rice paddy. The whole resort is set back from Chiang Mai, providing a truly relaxing and country-style experience. The staff were wonderful and very accommodating. You really felt that you were a guest and not just another customer.
Keep in mind that you are about 20 minutes from the city of Chiang Mai. The hotel has a van service for 300 baht/trip. I recommend you get a motorbike or rent a car if you want to travel back and forth frequently. Otherwise, just be lazy and lounge around the beautiful Puka grounds.
