Hotel 3 Nagas, Luang Prabang

At the totally charming 3 Nagas you can stay in two different versions of Laos at the same time. The lively modern Laos and the traditional country of 100 years ago.

Pull up – possibly in a 1953 Citroen – outside the Hotel 3 Nagas in Luang Prabang and you will have arrived in a bygone century; the hotel comprises three meticulously restored UNESCO World Heritage Buildings, each more than a hundred years old. So expect graceful lines and human-scale architecture on the outside and, when you step inside, some contemporary design ideas and up-to-the-minute luxuries.

High ceilings above, and dark wooden floors beneath your feet. A tranquil courtyard beside the gentle Nam Khan River. Luxurious guest rooms with – typically – four poster beds and furnishings that include rich silk fabrics and traditional woven materials.

Visit 3 Nagas, as part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Laos, and you’ll be staying in a fusion of time; in Luang Prabang’s fine old quarter.
