Sofitel opens in Laos, in Luang Prabang

Sofitel’s new hotel is located in Luang Prabang, the UNESCO World Heritage site full of color, charm and timeless splendor. The hotel is located in the century-old former governor’s mansion which has been restored to its full grandeur and majestic grace.

The hotel serves as a gallery, housing an array of Indochinese art, a wine cellar and library with one of Luang Prabang’s largest collection of books.

Surrounded by a lush tropical garden, Sofitel Luang Prabang boasts 25 clay-roofed suites, ranging in size from 46 to 120 square meters, 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.

LE SPA offers treatments and therapies that combine ancient Lao healing techniques with local organic products and the latest advances in skin care. The hotel restaurant, Governor’s Grill, offers a delectable blend of fine western gastronomy and traditional Lao cuisine with its distinctive spices and flavours. Sofitel Luang Prabang also offers a memorable setting for events and meetings. The graceful Lao architecture of the private boardroom and lounge, Kaipen, accommodates up to 70 people, while The Garden can host up to 200 guests.
