Very happy with our stay at The Luang Say Residence, from the moment we arrived the hospitality was perfect. Our room was very spacious and cosy with a lovely balcony and view plus the bed was the comfiest i have ever had! The property has a lovely garden and grows their own vegetables and herbs which I loved to see. We spent most of our time though enjoying the wonderful pool!

There isn't a lot to say about the Luang Say Residence that isn't overwhelmingly positive. This is a top-class property, only minutes from the center or town, where colonial-era charm hits you from every angle, and the pinnacle of laid back Laotian hospitality is on full display. We had a wonderful family-friendly stay here and would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone looking to spend some time in this fantastic UNESCO world hertiage town.

My family & I stayed at The Luang Say Residence for 3 days and it was beyond our expectations. Beautiful property and the food was amazing. The Explorator Suite was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The staff made us feel so at home & also surprised me with a birthday cake which was very nice and thoughtful! Had a fantastic weekend and will definitely be coming back to stay here the next time I visit Luang Prabang!
