In a nutshell
The part of Indochina that brings out the explorer in you.
The urge to explore couldn’t feel greater when visiting the UNESCO-protected city of Luang Prabang. With an abundance of ornate Buddhist temples, mélanged with a French colonial style setting, the fusion of Laos and Indo-China history tells a fascinating story about a town filled with colour and traditions.
Luang Say Residence, located within the historic old town, acts as a remembrance of ”Indochine française’, through its charming colonial design. Based on the personalities of four French explorers who visited Laos in the turn of the 19th century, the ambiance of the hotel captures the chic style and elegance reminiscent of the Belle Époque era.
With each room boasting spacious terraces overlooking the gardens and incredibly comfortable beds, it is the perfect place to wind down and relax after a long day of site seeing. However come sunset, when jazz tunes begin to play in the bar, the urge to get dressed up in your best number and drink a long cocktail, acts as a perfect prelude to the alfresco dining that follows. Matched with the spiritual tranquility that instills the air of Luang Prabang, the combination of both somehow emits a restorative sensation – something that can only be experienced when staying at Luang Say Residence.

From the beginning
Created by two Frenchmen who had equally had an intense love for Laos and Luang Prabang, Luang Say Residence was born following the tremendous success of their luxury cruises along the Mekong River. With the French being so passionate about their history, the idea to emulate the sense of adventure that their ancestors had, is what makes staying at Luang Say both curiously exciting and relaxing at the same time.
Something else you didn’t know
There is a small yet vibrant French community that continues to live in Luang Prabang, that seem to prefer the city’s calming and easygoing lifestyle compared to home life back in France.
