3 Nagas Luang Prabang, MGallery by Sofitel
The 3 Nagas Sofitel hotel in Luang Prabang is an alluring property dripping in vintage references, housed as it is in three heritage buildings that date back more than a century.
While the beautiful, authentic structures may be traditional, this is complemented expertly with simple fixtures, polished floors, and sparkling white walls, offsetting the wooden furniture, Laotian textiles and artwork.
Then, stepping into the gardens of 3 Nagas is like being transported to an exotic oasis, with soft green grass below your feet and plantlife bursting with life all around. Sun loungers are placed around a tranquil pond under the shady canopy of tropical trees; though the outside living does not stop there, what with an al fresco restaurant in which to savour delectable cuisine and contemplate these leafy surrounds.
What’s more, to really get to know this ancient city, 3 Nagas offers all its guests bicycles to borrow, so pack up a picnic and spend the day touring the stunning collection of temples that Luang Prabang is so well known for, the highlight, of course, being Wat Xieng Thong – a prime example of Laotian architecture which is not to be missed. Once night falls, wander over to the night market and spoil yourself with all kinds of trinkets and keepsakes, as traditional crafts and fabrics fill up the busy stalls here.
In addition, at 3 Nagas Luang Prabang, you are granted all the benefits of an intimate boutique hotel, while also reaping the rewards of staying at a larger resort. This is because the exclusive, 15-bedroom 3 Nagas has a sister hotel nearby – Sofitel Luang Prabang, giving you access to everything on offer there as well. From massages at Le Spa to a refreshing swim in the amethyst tiled pool, a warm welcome will be waiting for you just a few minutes down the road.
