Combining a century-old French fort with award-winning contemporary interiors, Sofitel Luang Prabang is an unusual concept. Located in the heart of Luang Prabang, Laos, this hip resort-style hotel provides the ideal base from which to explore the delights of this UNESCO World Heritage town. Although the hotel is a romantic retreat more suited to couples, children are welcome.
Sofitel Luang Prabang is an all-suite resort. The 23 elegant and sophisticated rooms are styled with a blend of colonial heritage with contemporary chic, and maximise comfort and luxury. Each room features a huge four-poster bed, an oversized bathtub and all modern amenities. Some suites have their own pool. For those looking for maximum indulgence, the grand and luxurious Governor Suites are simply stunning.
Dining is a gastronomic experience. The menu at Sabai Library & Lounge features international favourites, while upmarket Laotian dishes are served at Kaipen. Romantic meals can be arranged in the privacy of your suite. For a change of scenery, head to the renowned restaurant at sister hotel 3 Nagas.
The emphasis at Sofitel Luang Prabang is on relaxing. Laze by the lavender-coloured swimming pool, be pampered with a treatment in the heavenly spa or browse around the hotel’s weekly Baan Silipa fair. The hotel offers hands-on cooking classes, which are a must.
Steeped in history, Luang Prabang is a fascinating town with so many treasures waiting to be explored. Highlights included Wat Xieng Thong, cruising down the Mekong River and the Kuang Si Waterfalls. The night markets and textile boutiques are also worth visiting.
