AVANI Hotels & Resorts’ newest boutique hotel has just opened in Luang Prabang, within the pulsing centre of Laotian culture. AVANI+ Luang Prabang, set amongst picturesque streets and artisanal stores, is just steps away from the city’s most fascinating sights such as the Mekong River, Royal Palace, and Night Market.
The property, with 53 guest rooms and suites, is a converted bungalow that was originally built for French military officers. The influence of France is felt in the hotel’s contemporary French neo-classical architecture which is integrated into the guest spaces, with French-styled louvered wooden doors and an intimate, open-plan feel.
Perfect for modern explorers, the hotel’s location and history makes it perfect for giving traveller’s insight into local culture and hotspots. This European aesthetic melds seamlessly with classic Laotian touches like the hand-stitched and waxed batik, cement tiles.
Guests in search of relaxation can find an oasis from the bustling activity of Luang Prabang at the hotel’s AVANISPA, or rest in the shade of the ancient Banyan tree which is rooted by the swimming pool. The hotel’s signature restaurant, The Bistro, is the perfect opportunity for visitors to get a taste of local Laotian cuisine. Heavily focused on sustainable dining, the restaurants ingredients are often sourced from local farmers that use the most traditional and organic of farming and fishing techniques.
AVANI+ Luang Prabang is the first property of the AVANI+ brand extension and demonstrates this through an unflinching dedication to culture and modern design aesthetics and promises to offer all that millennial-minded travellers would expect when visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Laos.
