Laos’ luxurious new retreat: Alila Luang Prabang

Alia Luang PrabangAsia’s most recent and exciting luxury boutique hotel group, Alila Hotels & Resorts, has introduced its second property in Indochina: Alila Luang Prabang. Set to open its doors in October 2010, Alila Luang Prabang is expected to raise the bar for luxury retreats in Laos.  The small UNESCO Heritage town of Luang Prabang is the cultural centre of Laos, known for its laid back atmosphere & profusion of temples, handicraft shops & art galleries. And overlooking the confluence of the Mekong & Nam Khan rivers, the new Alila hotel & spa will offer breathtaking views of the surrounding sacred mountains & nationally treasured landmarks. The property will perfectly complement the existing property also owned by the group, 3 Nagas by Alila – a boutique hotel in central Luang Prabang that was sensitively restored in 2003.  Alila Luang Prabang has conserved the site’s architectural heritage, combining existing colonial buildings built between 1910 and 1920 with new structures designed to complement the original designs. The all-suite property will comprise 23 suites, all uniquely designed, with private gardens & either a pool or outdoor pavilion with fantastic views.

  1. If its anything like as nice as the 3 Nagas they will be on to a winner! It actually looks like it has been built in the old prison (going from the images on their website – looks like a guard tower) which to me just adds to the appeal…..The Amantaka also in LP is built in the old hospital grounds…..

    it’s great to see LPQ moving firmly forward in the luxury market and giving travellers more lux accommodation options!
