3 Nagas Hotel Luang Prabang

57

Deep in the ancient city of Luang Prabang, 3 Nagas Hotel sits cheek-by-jowl with stilted wooden Lao houses, palm trees and vibrant Buddhist temples. The boutique hotel is a bewitching place from which to explore the colourful street markets, glistening temples and cultural sites of the historic district.

Location

Set on the sleepy main road passing through the sacred peninsula, you’re as likely to see an apprentice monk in tangerine robes as a fellow falang (foreigner), for this is where most of the temples are found. It’s also perfect for watching the Tak Bat (dawn ritual of giving alms to the monks), which passes nearby. Close too are all the best restaurants, which are within easy walking distance. Borrow a bike and lose yourself in the backstreets and along the attractive banks of the Mekong and Khan rivers.

Address: Sakkaline Rd, Luang Prabang, Laos.

Style & character

3 Nagas via Explore Laos 

From the moment you spot the hotel’s vintage burgundy Citroen parked outside the two French villas – for there’s one on either side of the road – 3 Nagas instantly spells old world style. If ever there was a spot evoking French colonial days and begging you to don that white linen jacket this is it. Golden Buddha statues at every turn, apsara girls dancing quietly upon walls in gilt stencils, ornamental gardens and soothing dark-wood rooms. Classic Indochine.

Service & facilities

Acquired and refurbished by the Accor Group, 3 Nagas is one of the original boutique hotels on the peninsula and still one of the most attractive, with warm experienced staff and excellent service. There are no facilities here other than the bar, restaurant, and free bicycles, however there’s a free shuttle service around the city and to its sister hotel, the Sofitel Luang Prabang Hotel, where you can make use of the spa, free gym and outdoor pool.
