Architecture
Luang Prabang is one of the best-preserved towns in Southeast Asia, a stunning example of blending between colonial and traditional Lao architecture. The architecture is so remarkable in fact that in 1995, UNESCO declared the town a World Heritage Centre, protecting 177 sacred structures, a vast system of natural ponds and 443 civic buildings – including Maison Souvannaphoum.

The main building of Maison Souvannaphoum is a fine example of this fusion. The French colonial mansion has bright white walls, louvre wooden shutters and large windows while the decorative roof edging with pointed finials is typical Lao. There are elegant Lao touches throughout the hotel, from the antique Buddha statue in the corridor, to the traditional spirit house at the entrance, to the hand woven textiles featured in each room. The rooms are modern and stylish, with all the comforts and amenities.

A covered walkway overflowing with lush bougainvillea leads you past the manicured front lawn to the mansion’s main doorway, shaded with an impressive projecting veranda. From the wide entrance, flow through the reception area into our open-air restaurant and swimming pool.

The walkway continues on to the Garden Wing, an elegantly coordinated new building. Each of the Garden Wing rooms has contemporary decor and a spacious veranda overlooking the luxuriant tropical garden. It’s the perfect place to relax, soak up the atmosphere, smell the fragrant frangipani blossoms and get away from it all while still being close to the town center.
