Residence Sisouk, Pakse, Laos

It takes a matter of minutes before you feel at home in the Sisouk. And at that moment you realise why it’s called a Residence rather than a hotel.

Mind you, it is a home quite unlike the one you’re used to - unless, of course, you happen to live in the centre of the colourful city of Pakse, overlooking the wide Sedone River. Or have bedrooms with curtained beds and floor-to-ceiling windows that give you glimpses of hard-paddled races between teams of Laotians in traditional 18-man canoes.

Specify Residence Sisouk on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Laos and you find that, as well as being a delightful home away from home, Residence Sisouk charms in other ways too. With extremely stylish but simple décor. With highly polished hard wood floors. With a setting that puts you in the midst of all the life and energy of Pakse – one of Southern Laos’s most colourful and involving cities.
