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 stayed here for a couple of nights. The rooms and bathrooms are really beautiful and we really enjoyed our stay. We had a good cooking experience with kids and staff are really friendly. Although it is situated outside, they have good transportation system.

I booked a stay at Sofitel LP because I am interested in French Colonial architecture. The hotel complex is used to be the French governor's residence so the villas and yard are beautiful designed. If you are interested in Indochina history, then this hotel is a great choice. The services are exceptional, I was absolutely pampered. The hotel located in a quiet neighbourhood and there is transfer service to the town centre. Breakfast is also great. I will stay again.

Enjoyed our stay at Pool Villa and also Garden Suite. Both room types are big, nice and clean. Staff are really friendly. Free shuttle transfer to city center. Free of charge if you prefer to enjoy the city by bicycles. Worth the price.

Sofitel Luang Prabang is a luxury style retreat that everyone should stay, the hotel gives a sense of calmness due to the green surroundings. The hotel villa with private pool is absolutely great, you can enjoy the pool with a sense of privacy, besides. The hotel is really clean as they have daily cleaning / make up room services. It has great privacy as they situated away from the main road, and very quiet. On the other side, the hotel is not far from the city, it's only about 1.3km away. It's the perfect reason to utilize the free bicycle provided by the hotel to enjoy the sight-seeing in the city. There's also an alternative way to go to the city with the free shuttle golf cart service according to specific hour provided by the Sofitel hotel. The hotel manager and his team members at Sofitel Luang Prabang are very helpful and always welcome you with a big great smile every time they see you. You can always ask for tourist attractions or recommended restaurants when you are there, they are more than happy to help. PLUS, at the very last day, I was quite rushed to the airport, I left something at the hotel, I call the hotel management, they quickly retrieve my personal belongings and offer to post it back to my city at Vientiane. Lastly, I will recommend everyone to stay and enjoy at the Sofitel Luang Prabang.

The Sofitel in Luang Prabang Laos is now absolutely my favourite Sofitel experience and the care and kindness shown to me by all the hotels superb and professional staff the best I have encountered. From the moment I was collected from the airport and so comfortably transported to the hotel I began to have a sense of the wonderful personal attention shown to guests by the Sofitel staff. Nothing was too much trouble, any request answered by a smiling and willing staff member and most things anticipated so there were few requests necessary. A comfortable and graciously appointed room, refreshed and replenished constantly and the luxury of a personal pool to cool off in after another excursion into the town or beyond was delightful and a haven to return to. Meals at the Governors Grill were also a delight and beginning the day with a refreshing glass of anti-ageing juice ( sadly no visible results but wonderful for the digestion) delicious and the start of a feast of french inspired and local foods with something for all tastes. My biggest surprise was seeing the resident rabbits the on my first evening on the terrace and really enhanced the feeling of being a temporary resident in Alices Wonderland. The rabbits are long term and regular visitors and a ready supply of carrots kept these fortunate creatures as happy as the guests watching and enjoying their presence and an extra source of entertainment while enjoying a delicious cocktail or meal. Each visit to the restaurant provided engaging conversations with the truly delightful staff who were happy to answer my endless questions and generously tell me about their families and lives in Luang Prabang and beyond. Further luxury and the best massages I have ever had were at the hotel spa and the amazing women who provided these excellent and professional in every way. Thank you Ms Do and Ms Or. The early morning market visit and following cooking class guided and instructed by Chef Pooki was a wonderful addition to my stay also and the food we produced then served to us graciously for lunch and so delicious. Excursions from the hotel with recommended driver Mr Ouseng also most enjoyable and provided further windows into this remarkable culture full of surprises and traditional experiences and a trip on the awesome Mekong river also organised by wonderful obliging staff a never forgotten experience. I cannot recommend more highly my stay at the Sofitel Luang Prabang. Where it may be the smallest in the Sofitel family it distils all the expected professionalism and touches associated with the brand and enhances them all. I cannot name every person who smiled, extended their friendly greeting or cared for me in every way and all the housekeeping staff must also be commended for their excellent work. Especial thanks to Mickey, Piew and Souk for their kindness and conversation and apologies to those whose names I have not included. The delightful and welcoming reception staff were so lovely to me and I wont forget the kindness of all staff at the Sofitel Luang Prabang and hope to return. Khop jai lai lai. Sok dee Christine.
