Sofitel Luang Prabang
Luang Prabang

Rebranded from Hotel De La Paix to Sofitel Luang Prabang in 2016, this property has evolved from its original status as a French Governor’s residence in 1900’s to a luxury hotel, which successfully fuses colonial charm with contemporary elegance.

Built on a heritage site against a backdrop of green mountains, this hotel sits in an enchanted spot and has been carefully designed to stay true to its unspoiled setting. Touches like its botanical garden, amethyst-tiled pool and tented restaurant blend into the idyll and preserve its rural beauty.

Formerly the city's prison, the hotel maintains a lot of its original character from 100 years ago, with parts of the traditional building now reincarnated as distinctive features: the old entrance gateway heightens the sense of arrival, and guests can dine in the former Guard's Tower, overlooking the site. Beautiful old trees have also been tended to and integrated into the landscaping. At the same time, the hotel's newer buildings that have been sensitively designed to pay homage to local Laos architecture, and the contemporary Asian interior design that runs throughout the property make Sofitel Luang Prabang one of the most luxurious and sleek hotels in the capital.

Large courtyards and landscaped gardens create a sense of space, whilst the individually-designed suites offer private sanctuaries of sumptuous comfort. The hotel has 25 inviting suites with five-metre high ceilings, private gardens and a pool or gazebo with oversized bathtubs.

Dine at the scenic tented restaurant ‘Governor’s Grill’ to taste the very best grill food in the city, or relax in the ‘The Library’ and enjoy international cuisine in a lighter, more traditional European setting. While staying here, try your hand at the bi-weekly cooking classes on offer, where you will be escorted to the local markets to choose your fresh produce before being taught the art of creating the local dishes. Or, if you are after a more secluded experience, take part in a cooking session at the picturesque Kung Si Waterfall. Treat yourself in the hotel’s spa too by indulging in the specialised treatments on offer with natural and organic products to enrich your memorable stay.

Proverb

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
