“New "old" colonial house”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

The hotel whilst looking like a French Colonial Villa is in fact just over three years old. Set in a verdant garden with a beautiful pool, the hotel is a quiet oasis in backpacker land, which is in the centre of town. Don't expect Laos prices though, everything here costs about the same a s Europe. The staff however are fabulous and you can always go out to eat - we did.

Room Tip: A tuk tuk to town costs 30,000 Lak if you hail one outside the hotel, or 60,000 Lak, if the hotel ar...

This hotel is beautifully created and provides a lovely escape in Luang Prabang if you do not want the downtown experience. It is a short (free) cycle ride to the centre (or car/tuk tuk is possible) which we enjoyed most days and we saw more of the city that way. Main draws here are the gardens and swimming pool which are a welcome respite after a hot day exploring the city or doing activities in the surrounds. We heard a spa was on the way which will make it a '5' I think. Afternoon tea in the bar should be enjoyed - particularly good Lao coffee.. Recommended to mix a city and active holiday with a small resort feel as well.

A quite lovely French colonial styled hotel comprising a main building with a gorgeous lobby, restaurant and bar and several separate villas of impeccable suites situated in beautifully tended tropical gardens.

But what really make this place are the incredibly friendly and helpful staff. They made a real effort to get to know us a took real interest in our trip. They helped us enthusiastically with everything from hiring a car, to choosing restaurants and planning our exploration of the town and the surrounding countryside. Discussing what to do and what we did with the team at reception became an enjoyable part of each day - very special thank you.

Room Tip: All the room are quiet overlooking beautifully tended tropical gardens.

The Luang Say epitomises class, elegance, history and excellence. The service is impeccable. I've been all over the world and stayed in some of the worlds finest hotels, however never before has a hotel proactively offered me a late check out- well done to the Luang Say the late check out meant we could visit the Elephant reserve without having to rush to check out in the morning. The pool is beautiful and the hotel provides regular transfers to town. Well done i'd love to to back

From the charming and attentive staff to the beautiful gardens, this French colonial style hotel was a delight to stay in. The main buildings are stylish and comfortable and the room was spacious, clean and wonderfully appointed. The pool was a welcome spot to relax with great service. Breakfasts were lovely on the terrace overlooking the gardens. We could not fault this place in any respect.

This hotel is stunningly beautiful. French colonial style with perfectly peaceful gardens. I particularly enjoyed seeing the vegetable gardens, whilst walking in the grounds. Excellent food and service. We had our 4 year old granddaughter and baby grandson with us, they were accommodated for with great kindness. Lovely pool for a refreshing dip before dinner. We highly recommend this lovely hotel.

Room Tip: The suites in the main building are lovely. Room 601 balcony has a great view of the garden

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Luang Prabang, we were so pleased to have chosen the luang say residence.
Beautiful rooms, well appointed with fresh fruit daily.
Lovely breakfasts, amazing evening meals and fantastic puds. Try the fresh spring rolls - delicious!
The bar area was cosy with an open fire to keep the chill away, the staff were attentive, polite and very helpful. A special thanks to sak - who was fabulous!
Great pool, everything pristine and clean.
Slightly on outskirts, but this allowed for a more relaxed holiday . Hotel provides a Free shuttle bus into town in the evenings.
