Home to historic temples and elegant French provincial architecture, Luang Prabang, the
UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a riot of colours from nature. With a couple of airlines including Silkair, Thai Airways and Jetstar flying to Laos, you can get to this city via Vientiane, Bangkok or Hanoi.

Life is enjoyed slowly and vividly in this town and the Sofitel Luang Prabang is a century-old former governor’s mansion which has been restored to its full grandeur and majestic grace. Here are 8 reasons we love this UNESCO protected site.
1. French Architecture Blends with Local Culture
The hotel is a gem, complementing the timeless splendour of Luang Prabang and offering luxury travellers the quintessential Sofitel experience - an authentic blend of local culture and French art de vivre. The hotel serves as a gallery, housing an array of Indochinese art and a wine cellar and library with one of Luang Prabang’ s largest collection of books.
2. Luxurious Exteriors and Interiors
The hotel is surrounded by a lush tropical garden and boasts 25 clay-roofed suites, ranging in size from 46 to 120 square metres, each with its own private garden, oversized bathtub or private pool. Shuttered windows, hand-carved poster bed frames and exquisite Lao artefacts nurture a sense of old-world nostalgia, enhanced by 21st-century amenities such as flat-screen televisions, Wi-Fi and the signature plush Sofitel MyBed.
3. Al Fresco Dining
The hotel restaurant, Governor & Grill, offers a delectable blend of fine western gastronomy and traditional Lao cuisine with its distinctive spices and flavours. Guests enjoying the restaurant can choose cosy indoor seating or al-fresco dining in a colonial-style tent overlooking the garden, both of which offer unforgettable ambiance.
4. Private Candle-Lit Dinners
Private candle-lit dinners can be arranged for those seeking an extra special evening.
5. Local Delights
Guests can take the tastes of Laos home by joining a journey into the heart of local culinary traditions, starting with a morning market tour to learn about local foods and a half-day cooking class on authentic Lao fare, followed by a savoury meal to sample their creations.
6. Exploring Luang Prabang
The hotel’s Leisure Concierge can also arrange a range of other unforgettable encounters, from witnessing the saffron-clad monks receive alms from the faithful, to getting up close and personal with Laos’ gentle giants at the elephant conservation camp or taking in riverside life with a picnic, cruise or kayak excursion on the Mekong River.
7. LE SPA
The hotel also presents ample opportunities for relaxation and rejuvenation. LE SPA offers treatments and therapies that combine ancient Lao healing techniques with local organic products and the latest advances in skin care. Guests can also choose ‘Blind Massages’, which are provided by local community members with disabilities as part of the hotel’s sustainable development initiatives, and are slightly more vigorous and intense than usual due to the heightened senses of the therapists.
8. Lounging Pool
The area surrounding the 25-metre mosaic-tiled pool is perfect for lounging under the sun, while the Fitness Centre equipped with the latest TechnoGym equipment offers both yoga and Pilates classes on request.
