I love to travel to different places and these days my travel budget is less. So why do I return to Luang Prabang each year? For the sheer delight of staying at Sofitel LP. With just twenty two rooms, and an army of staff to take care of me, the scale is ridiculously luxurious and warmly hospitable. This year, Ali, Na, Wat, Aou, Kevin, Chef John and all the rest of the magnificent staff made me feel comfortable and welcome and pampered. The room was quiet and peaceful (room 3), the decor, tasteful and the amenity just right. In Ban Mano, this beautiful property is the right distance from the center and the hotel provides ample transport to and fro. The cooking class and Friday night’s Lao night are not to be missed. Also, one of the best massages ever! And if you want to treat yourself nice, grab a room with a pool. Otherwise, just settle for the truly great pool in the stunning garden. Will I go back? You betcha. Nothing more I could ask for just continue giving the guest the great service that you provide.
