Still unknown to mass tourism, the Luang Say Residence is a hidden gem amongst the treasure that is Luang Prabang. With beautiful temples and a place steeped in French colonial history, there is beauty and tranquility at every turn. From the Buddhist monks strolling around, to the backdrop of lush gardens and mountain views, visitors become immediately immersed in the natural aura of this beautiful area.
As the French colonized Laos, it seems fitting that the design concept of the hotel has adopted this key period in history. Based on the personalities of four French explorers who visited Laos in the turn of the 19th century, the ambiance reflects the colonial architecture of that time. The rooms are beautifully laid out with large terraces overlooking the hotel gardens and beds so comfortable that guests are just as delighted to linger just a bit longer before exploring the stunning surroundings in the day ahead.
The resort boasts a beautifully designed outdoor swimming pool with wood decking. Guests can go for a leisurely swim or find a shady spot in the tropical gardens and relax, surrounded by lily-filled ponds, banana palms and exotic flowers.
The hotel’s restaurant “La Belle Epoque” portrays the true essence of the French colonial era – elegance, with a timeless feeling. Set within exquisite gardens, there is an outdoor alfresco area, overlooking where most of the vegetables and fresh herbs are grown. The menu offers both European and local cuisine. The display and presentation is done to French style perfection – Dainty but substantial at the same time. Guests can also relax in the 1861 bar, offering an extensive range of cocktails and with dark woods and smoky velvet interiors, a suave ambience is created.
