A historic property with a royal heritage
Food & wine | History & culture | Relaxation | Spa
This hotel is located in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Luang Prabang, a beautiful and historic town that gives you the feeling of stepping back in time. It gets its name from the fact that Prime Minister and Prince Souvannaphoum once stayed in the residence, giving you a taste of a royal lifestyle. The hotel is situated in the centre of the town, ideally located for a day of sightseeing and visiting the fascinating surrounding temples.
The rooms feature classic colonial interiors with inviting French doors that lead onto a peaceful balcony. With a choice of garden rooms or for something a little special why not upgrade to La Residence or the Laos Room, where you can enjoy daily afternoon tea and discounts on the gallery as part of your stay.
Elephant Blanc serves Laotian and Indochinese cuisine, such as Luang Prabang salads and Lao curry chicken that you can enjoy from the comfort of your indoor dining venue or an al fresco garden setting. To make the most of your cultural dining experience, choose Feast of the Prince, a ten-dish Laotian tasting menu that draws from the best regional tastes. On certain days, Feast of the Prince is accompanied by traditional Laotian dance and music.
The hotel’s spa is beautiful, and offers treatments from tutored and excellent therapists. The Angsana Spa provides Asian-inspired treatments and recipes such as Rice Soya Body Polish and Sesame Ginger Brilliance Body Polish. Alternatively, try some of the many activities on offer. Cycle through Luang Prabang, swim in a waterfall or taste traditional Laos dishes.
Stay here on these holidays
Vietnam is blessed with such variety from the enchanting Halong Bay to the bustling streets of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) and Hanoi. Laos is a land of laid back people, gilded temples and the mighty Mekong river, while Cambodia lays claim to the awesome and ancient temples of Angkor.
The route from Luang Prabang in the north to the capital Vientiane takes you through a dramatic landscape of gently meandering rivers, tall limestone karst formations, craggy caves and waterfalls.
