Sofitel Luang Prabang
Unit 4, Ban Mano
My wife and I spent three wonderful nights at this elegant property. A former governor's mansion, this hotel has been lovingly restored by Sofitel and the experience is great. From the gatehouse, one sees the beautiful side buildings, then descends to the courtyard of outside rooms. Pools, trees and flowers are all around. Our room was large, with seating areas inside and outside, a tub outside, and a shower and tub between inside and outside. The bed was perhaps the most comfortable hotel bed that I had felt in ages too, and the evenings absolutely silent (despite this being New Year time). We loved the pool and the grill as well (excellent food). Service sparkled - cheery and helpful managers and staff made our stay great. We will definitely return.

We’re having our final lunch in the Governor’s Grill prior to flying home. All four of us (including twins aged 9) could not praise this hotel highly enough. The staff were simply amazing, the bedrooms stunning and all the extras we did through the hotel were of such high standard (cooking course, alms giving, massages). The food including breakfasts were delicious. We loved the location which was slightly out of town in a quiet residential area. It was easy and cheap to catch a tuk tuk into the centre. The grounds and swimming pool were to die for and the cute bunnies hopping around the property only added to the charm. Congratulations to all the staff for running such an amazing place. Thank you.

This hotel in my view is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Big statement! We stayed 4 nights on a Luxury Escape with friends. From the time we were picked up at the airport, our arrival at the hotel reception which was different and beautiful in itself, to the friendly staff. We arrived early and our room wasn’t ready so we sat in the restaurant which is outdoors looking into the grounds. 25 single story rooms in a ‘U’ shape looking out at the gardens and to a 25m pool. Our room was outstanding. I loved the intimacy of the hotel where we met pretty much everyone staying. Every staff member was friendly and professional. Breakfast was excellent. We did a cooking course with lunch which was great and we had a 90 minute massage each. We have been to Luang Prabang now 4 times and if we go back then I’m only staying at this hotel.
