The Sofitel in Laos: The best new hotel in Luang Prabang is housed in the old governor's mansion



Home to historic temples and elegant French provincial architecture, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Luang Prabang is a riot of colour: the green of the trees contrasting with their bright blossoms and the saffron robes of the Laotian monks.

The Sofitel Luang Prabang also serves as a gallery, housing an array of Indochinese art and a wine cellar, plus a library with one of Luang Prabang' s largest collection of books.

Sofitel Luang Prabang, which is surrounded by a lush tropical garden, boasts 25 clay-roofed suites, ranging in size from 46 to 120 square metres, each with its own private garden, oversized bathtub or private pool.

Shuttered windows, hand-carved poster bed frames and exquisite Lao artefacts nurture a sense of old-world nostalgia, enhanced by 21st-century amenities such as flat-screen televisions, Wi-Fi and the signature plush Sofitel MyBed.
