The Luang Say Residence - Luxury Hotel in Luang Prabang

Colonial-style escape set in the historic town of Luang Prabang

Reminiscent of the days when the great explorers of the 19th century discovered the Upper Mekong, The Luang Say Residence reflects the elegant aspects of life in the colonial era. With its blend of Indochinese and French architecture, beautifully furnished, spacious suites, delectable cuisine and leisurely hours spent in tropical gardens or in the pool, the hotel encompasses the enchantment of Luang Prabang.

The atmosphere at The Luang Say Residence is tranquil with generously-sized suites decorated in colonial style. Find a shady spot in the tropical gardens and relax surrounded by lily-filled ponds, banana palms and exotic flowers. Then, return to your suite or the dining room and enjoy a delicious lunch before heading to the pool for a leisurely afternoon swim.

Just minutes from Luang Say Residence is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Luang Prabang with 33 exquisite temples and the Royal Palace. Wander through streets filled with the scent of frangipanis, past French colonial architecture to gold-coloured temples and monks in burnt sienna robes. End the day with an exquisite dinner in the hotel restaurant.
