Luang Prabang

A colonial mansion turned five-star Sofitel hotel in Luang Prabang, including a suite, breakfast, transfers, afternoon tea, plus more for longer stays

While many of Southeast Asia’s cities are a cacophony of noise and activity, laid-back Luang Prabang has an altogether more serene character. Located beside the mighty Mekong River, this former royal capital is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and often said to be the best-preserved city on the continent.

Located in a colonial mansion and former governor’s residence, Sofitel Luang Prabang captures the spirit of its surroundings by blending old-world charm with modern refinements. Dine on fusion food at restaurants The Library and Governor’s Grill, drift away with time-honoured Laotian treatments at Le SPA and relax on the plush al fresco lounge deck beside the swimming pool. At the centre of the hotel is a rice paddy where you can roll up your sleeves and pick up a few harvesting skills, if you’re feeling green-fingered.

Low rise and small-scale, there are just 25 accommodations at Sofitel Luang Prabang - all of them suites. Ample indoor-outdoor lazing space are among the five-star comforts that’ll be waiting for you after a day of cafe-hopping or waterfall-climbing, plus a deep-soak, gazebo-sheltered bathtub (did we mention that?). Thanks to winning a place in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice 2017 awards, this five-star retreat is officially one of the most sought-after boutique stays in Laos.

We like

  • An authentic Lao dining experience at sister hotel 3 Nagas Luang Prabang when you stay four nights
  • Plenty of cushioned lazing spots in the Garden suites
  • Opting for a cookery class with a master Sofitel chef, which starts with a trip to a local market
