Sofitel, Luang Prabang

If you’re a design aficionado who appreciates art and style in everything, you’ll love this hotel; a kiss of the modern mind to the ancient history of the city.

Designed by leading architects to offer spatial poetry and an architectural statement, the Sofitel's  interiors won acclaim as ‘best in the world for a luxury hotel’ at the prestigious World Architect News Awards.

As if that wasn’t reason enough to make the Sofitel part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Laos, there is its wonderful setting at the heart of the ancient city of Luang Prabang – the hotel’s architecture seamlessly complementing its historic surroundings. And then there are the hotel’s inner refinements: you can expect cool, colonnaded corridors, with white walls and floors complemented with black ceilings. Bathrooms of marble and wood panelling, with rain showers. Not to mention spa and dining experiences that surpass elegance and reach the level of pure, unadulterated indulgence.
