“The emphasis at Sofitel Luang Prabang in Laos is on relaxing. Laze by the lavender-coloured swimming pool, be pampered with a treatment in the spa or browse around the hotel’s weekly Baan Silipa fair. The hotel offers hands-on cooking classes, which are a must.For a change of scenery, head to the renowned restaurant at sister hotel 3 Nagas. Although the hotel is a romantic retreat more suited to couples, children are welcome.”
Located in a UNESCO heritage building and former governor’s residence, Sofitel Luang Prabang in Laos blends Old World colonial charm with contemporary French luxury. Surrounded by tropical gardens, this all-suite hotel is the ideal base for exploring laid-back Luang Prabang.
The 25 suites feature shuttered windows, four-poster beds with billowing white nets, and exquisite Lao artefacts, alongside 21st century amenities. Each suite has a private garden, while some feature outdoor tubs or plunge pools.
The Governor’s Grill serves Lao and international cuisine and The Lounge is a great spot to relax with a glass of wine. Take home the tastes of Laos by joining a class at the KaToke Cooking School.
Explore the attractions of Luang Prabang, learn local handicrafts, or head out of town to the Kuang Si waterfalls or Pak Ou caves. Then return to the hotel’s relaxing ambience to cool down in the pool and enjoy a massage in Le SPA.
