Sofitel Luang Prabang Hotel

Ban Mano, Luang Prabang 0600 Laos
Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Once the French Governor's Fort, the "all-suite" Sofitel Luang Prabang now oozes colonial style and splendour fused with contemporary elegance in one of the finest resorts in the region. Situated on a heritage site in the former royal capital of Laos, the hotel is close to the major tourist attractions. Large courtyards, landscaped gardens, a reflecting pool and fireplaces provide a welcome retreat in all seasons. Individually designed suites create sanctuaries of private space and sumptuous comfort, revitalising the soul. Natural LeSpa therapies and gourmet dining at the Governor's Grill capture the essence of Laos, drawing on its culinary and wellness traditions.

We had a lovely 3 night getaway at this property. Although a little bigger than most Luang Prabang hotels it still has the charm and feel of a boutique hotel.

The location is good just outside the main town square (only a 5-10 drive). They offer a free shuttle bus to town at ni

Dear bseventy, Thank you for taking time to review us on Tripadvisor. We are delighted to hear that you had a "terrific visit" with us on your recent stay. As you may already know we are the smallest Sofitel in the world being only 25 suites and even-through we are running on high occupancy you will experience the peacefulness and privacy as the garden and hotel large space will make you feel like you are alone. Kevin will be pleased to hear that he served you well. Thank you again for the terrific review! Best, Mooyen & team

I am very pleased with the general attitude of the staff. They are friendly and helpful. However, the Governor's suite that I booked was really a disappointment. The second room was fitted with only a bed, and nothing else. There wasnt even a bedside table not to mention an ind

Sofitel Luang Prabang exceeded all our expectations. This is a beautifully restored UNESCO heritage mansion, very lovingly maintained. There are two adorable bunnies on the grounds. We stayed here for 5 days at the beginning of our honeymoon and couldn't have been more pampered b

My husband and me stayed at Sofitel Luang Prabang from 6-9 nov 2018. It’s a beautiful French colonial heritage site. Our room was amazing and very big. We enjoyed the Laos night which is held every Tuesday and Friday evenings. The staff at the reception was so nice and welcoming.

Hi will it be warm enough to swim in the pool late December/Jan? Choosing whether to stay at a place with a pool is critical or not (with kids). Thanks
No worry, December/January in Luang Prabang doesn’t have a freezing weather like other country. It’s still will be a sunny day most of the time. Average templature is around 20-25’C in the day time. Night time might be below 20’C. So you still can spend great moment at the swimming pool.

Each of our suite has his own garden where our guest can smoke and relax. The restaurant is located in our garden so it is possible to smock at our main restaurant. If you have any question do not hesitate to contact us directly. I wish you a nice day. Best regards, Aurelien Operation Manager

"Ask for a room away from the pool for added privacy"
"the hotel only on ground"
"Large room with garden and many tress in the hotel area."
"Pool Suite is big with additional bath-tub outdoor in the private garden. All rooms are quiet and private."
"The only negative is the lighting in the rooms. It is very dark around the bathroom area but such a small negative"
US$48 - US$577 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
