An outstanding, award-winning hotel near Luang Prabang's historic temples.

Award-winning Maison Souvannaphoum is a French colonial masterpiece, sitting in tropical gardens with vibrant orchids and Buddhist statuary. It's the former residence of Prince Souvannaphouma and is still full of regal charm, with pristine white architecture and an immaculately decked outdoor pool. You're just a short stroll from the banks of the Mekong River and 25 minutes' walk from Luang Prabang's historic district, full of intricate and timeless temples. Even closer is Wat Wisunarat — the oldest temple in the city dating back to the 16th Century, once home to Prabang Buddhas and recognisable for its large, watermelon-domed stupa.

Unwind in the pool, indulge at the incredible spa and dine on mouth-watering Laotian and Indochinese cuisine. The rooms here are beautiful — upgrade from a Garden Wing Room to a Maison Room or Champa Suite, also known as the Princess Room. The Maison Room has a superb balcony overlooking the garden, while the Champa Suite is in the heritage building of the hotel and has a separate lounge area plus garden views; both come with special extras including scented candles, canapés and wine upon arrival, as well as daily afternoon tea.
