Boasting 24 exquisitely appointed luxury suites, The Luang Say Residence extend through 6 stand alone pavillions and offer a contemporary reflection of life in the French colonial era.
The foyer in the main residence is built from local stone, its diamond shaped interior reminiscent of houses from the colonial period. A wooden ornamental staircase rises through the centre of the lobby to an open floor where a skylight illuminates the space and draws in the mountain breezes.
Each of the 5 pavilions behind the main residence was built using different materials such as brick, wood and cob (a mixture of clay and straw). The varied façades not only add character, but also place these inspiring pavillions in their historical context.
Nineteenth Century French explorers in the upper Mekong region played a special role in the discovery and development of Luang Prabang. Each pavilion therefore bears the name of one of these adventurers and includes a small memorial garden housing a fine bronze statue.
