My wife and I stayed at Sofitel for my birthday. She organized it as a surprise. She had rented a private garden villa with a bathtub for one night. We went there as soon as we could check in so we could enjoy the room as much as possible. The room was very beautiful and when we arrived were offered welcome snacks and drinks. We spent most of our time in the large bathtub that has more than enough space for two people. It wasn’t too hot that day, so sitting outside in the tub was a perfect alternative to swimming in a pool. The garden made us feel like we were in our own private house. The staff was exceptionally friendly and professional. I didn’t know it at the time, but my wife was sending WhatsApp messages to arrange other surprises like a private dinner by the pool. I’m not going to mention everything, because it might spoil it for other people. We want to thank Mr. Toui and Ms. Pookie for organizing everything and taking such good care for us. All I can say is that the food they served was delicious, and we felt very special during our entire stay. I’m looking forward to coming back.

First impression, when you arrive at the hotel, you're more likely to think of something mediocre... but once up the stairs, you know, this is going to be more than okay here... Once checked in... one level down, behind a wooden wall, you enter a beautiful courtyard with villas in colonial style all around. Actually it is a restored monumental mansion and a mix of laotian and french style. Each villa has two spacious rooms, the master bedroom with double bed and canopy has a small lounge, spacious bathroom, very nice outdoor bath, the other room with separate beds is almost the same, only the lounge is a bit smaller... The food is good, the wine list ok, the prices are European rather than local and some dishes are rather on the small side... But the staff is extremely friendly and do everything they can to satisfy the guests' needs. Sometimes you have to ask more than twice before you get what you asked, but in this post Covid period (the country hasn't been open again for so long and it's now the end of the rainy season) you understand that they may not yet are the well-oiled machine of yesteryear. We forgive them with a smile. Other recommendations are certainly the massages and the restaurant 3 Nagas a bit further in the city, which also belongs to the same group. The dishes are delicious! Definitely first drinking a cocktail in the building opposite the restaurant, also belongs to the 3 Nagas. You can also pay by signing on your room number from the Sofitel itself. All in all we loved staying here and if we were ever back in Luang Prabang we will definitely come back here! Our appreciation and thanks to the whole staff! With love from the Peeters family, Belgium

We had a lovely time in Luang Prabang, which was accentuated by the warm welcome of the Sofitel staff. Everyone, from the front desk, restaurant, kitchen, housekeeping and spa, was very friendly, professional and always helpful. The ambiance and serenity of the hotel are a perfect getaway to resource and regenerate oneself. The staff make you feel at home and comfortable. Cannot wait to go back!

I love the property’s landscape, beautiful sunsets, and outdoor baths. The place is serene, enhanced by the smell of incense that wafts over in the evening. Loose leaf local teas are available in every room, and the Phongsaly Green Tea is an instant delight. I love the pool suite best, featuring a sizeable private pool and a bath tub. The staff were most kind: Pookie from the front desk was most professional in welcoming guests. She’s entertained the most established dignitaries, and you will feel like one. Thorne has a pleasant smile that captures all of Laos’ hospitality. If available, play Pentaque with her under the sprawling Sofitel tree. Chef John is a specialist in local dishes, and his breakfast buffets are a feast of local delights. The lemongrass sausages and crisp croissaints are ones to remember. Tee is patient, and sharp in recommending drinks to pair with your meal. GM Anshul loves to talk with guests at the Governor’s Grill. He’s pleasant, welcoming, and full of stories and ideas to brighten your stay.

A great charming place to relax and celebrate with friends. A very dedicated staff, extremely friendly and helpful. It has a beautiful spa, nice layout, the hotel is a bit further from the city, which adds a lot of peacefulness and calm. Pookie is the real asset for the hotel- trying to serve everyone the best way possible. We celebrated the weekend with friends there, enjoyed it.

Sofitel Luang Prabang is the oldest and smallest Sofitel. There are only 25 rooms withing it's compound. They have done a fantastic job preserving its colonial-style originality. It is beautiful and peaceful. The landscape and decor made us feel like we are at home, rather than staying at a hotel. There's a big hammock in the the garden and a very big pool perfect for families. We unexpectedly got upgraded to the biggest suite, and it was amazing! The room we stayed in is huge, and the amenities were nice. It was very clean too. Overall very comfortable. We also used their spa, and the massage techniques the therapists used were incredibly amazing! Very relaxing. The spa was clean, and the rooms are spacious, suitable for a couple to be in the same room too. Besides all those great things, one of the main highlights of our stay was the service from the staff. From the moment we arrived until the moment we said good bye, there was no single second that encounter bad service. Staff at Sofitel was very attentive, super friendly and helpful, incredibly nice - all of them, from the GM to head chef, to head of staff, to servers, to housekeepers, to gardeners! I have never experienced exceptionally great service like this at any other five-star hotels. It's just incredible!! They all generated positive vibes, and we could sense their genuine intention to take care of us. Ms. Pookie, head of the staff, in particular, was doing a fantastic job making sure our stay was pleasant and stress-free. She is very suitable for this job, and our family was so glad that she was there during our stay. She did an excellent job! We would certainly be back to Sofitel, solely because of her and her lovely staff. All in all, it's a great place to stay. Highly recommend!
