This is the most exclusive accomodation in Luang Prabang. It's not cheap but it's worth the money. It's the ideal place to escape from the crowds and relax in a colonial style hotel. The dining room and the 1861 bar are a piece of art. There is a free shuttle service to and from the city center.
Entering Luang Say Residence you are transported to the atmosphere of colonial elegance without the colonials. Large rooms, wood embellishments, plenty of comfy chairs and useful tables, and kind young staff create an ambience of personal service in the old style. The restaurant serves delicious Western-style food as well as the local cuisine, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And although the hotel is in the main part of town, it is completely quiet. Beautiful gardens and a large swimming pool complete the effect. A delightful departure from the usual cookie-cutter Western hotels, while keeping to Western standards. Highly highly recommend.
DONT BOOK DIRECT! This is a lovely hotel in a nice location but sadly needs updating /repainting . We had a nice time but it was slightly spoilt by us discovering that if we had booked on Agoda we would have saved 30 % . We asked the GM to match the price but he refused . Food was ok but nothing to write home about . There are considerable language barrier issues with all the staff .
The property is very nice and the staff are extremely helpful and warm. They went to great lengths to make our stay perfect. Our visit was during the hotel’s soft opening, when you might have expected some snaffus, but we experienced no issues at all and were very impressed throughout. Special thanks to Bob, La, Jed and the whole team for such a memorable stay. We will invite our friends.
We stayed during the Christmas period when, I'm guessing, the hotel had just recently reopened its doors. The property itself is beautiful. Old colonial style houses set in a lush garden with all the modern amenities you'll need. The rooms were tastefully decorated and large, clean and functional for a family of 3. The rooms does come with a coffee plunger with coffee from a local Cafe which was fantastic. Also had some nice local teas in the room as well. There's a lot of history to these buildings and feels majestic to stay here. The location of the hotel is slightly out of town. We had a car which made it easier to get around but there are some limited shuttle services and of of course tuk tuks as well. The breakfast was simple but sufficient. Since there wasn't many guests, it was ordered from the menu. The only down side for when we visited is that the garden looked messy, like it hasn't been curated for a while which is ashame because it is so beautiful. Also, the pool wasn't cleaned either so we didn't get a chance to use it... Though it was pretty cold. Regardless of these shortcomings, we're happy with what we got for the price we paid. It's quite a special feeling to have the opportunity to stay here. …
It's a very beautiful and peaceful place. My family also love this place We stayed there for 3 days. We planned to stay longer than that but I have to leave because of my works in Vientiane. I surely choose this place again for next time :)
My wife and I were here for 3 nights and the property and service were both incredible. All the staff were attentive and very much service-focused. We were impressed by everyone but most by the girl at the front desk, Pop. She was always so helpful, friendly, and you could tell she genuinely cares for her guests. We had breakfast here a few days and ate in town. I was able to try the Khaow Peak Sen soup which was so flavorful and really energized me for the day. I'm going to attempt to make it myself at some point, probably won't be as good, but I still am thinking about the balance of spice and taste, so good. This hotel is outside of downtown so if you don't mind a 10-minute walk, you can get some peace and quiet and just go in when you see fit. The staff will also arrange tuk tuks for you if you'd like. Would recommend to anyone visiting Luang Prahbang…
It was a brief 3 days and 2 nights stay in this lovely luxury boutique hotel. It was like transporting back in time, living in the ultimate experience of kings and queens in this French colonial architecture. From the start, the staffs are very friendly and making us feel as if we were a part of their family members, with their attention to detail, enthusiasm, and humbleness. About the room, it was very-well maintained, and clear of dust. The bed was comfortable, also the hotel offers quite a good selection of pillow to suite our preferences. The amenities offered are reasonable, however, I do feel like the body lotion has a rather strange smell to it. At Luang Say Residence, here they offer à la carte breakfast with a pretty good range of Asian, Western, and vegetarian dishes. And afternoon tea, well, it was a true delicacy. Thank you very much to General Manager, Mr Francis, Room Division Manager, Mr. Santi and all the staffs: the receptionist girls, the waiters and waitresses, the drivers, the housekeeping, etc. for taking care of us. No word can describe how grateful we are to hospitalise by you all. And if I happen to visit Luang Prabang again, this is the only place I will stay. The place where I can say 'Home - The Sanctuary of Peaceful Stay.' …
This hotel seems steeped in ancient French Colonialism.....but, is only 9 years old! So one can revel in a past era without remorse. Service is quick and pleasant . Peaceful grounds with an infinity pool and full bar.
We were pick up by Ms. Pop and her colleague at the Pier in Luang Prabang. This was only the start of our stay. The pick up service was and still is amazing! SuperB! The hospitallity, the service, our room, breakfast, personel, everything is superB! Transport towards the post office. Breakfast! No bufet, but you can order what you would like to have (Western and Asian style). They arranged a scooter for us. The Residence does have bykes for their guests. The residence is outside the city centre, but Luang Prabang is not that huge, so everything is within walking distance and they have the post office shuttle bus. Special thanks too for Ms. Nang and Mr. Wat!
