Luang Prabang | First Class

Sheltered within well-tended tropical gardens in Luang Prabang’s historic quarter, the Sanctuary is a peaceful retreat with easy access to the city’s sights. Centred around a serene lotus pond, three UNESCO-listed buildings (a former royal house and stables) have been converted into a series of comfortable rooms and suites leading to sheltered terraces overlooking the grounds.

The historic rooms, situated in what was once Luang Prabang’s Chinese dispensary, have been skillfully designed to preserve their notable features while creating bright, modern lodging spaces. Sloping, dark-wood ceilings, nostalgic, grid-paned windows and a palette of rich reds, creams and cocoas maintains a chic, classical feel. Pale tones and clean lines enhance the natural light in the contemporary rooms, and private balconies provide space to sit and enjoy the views over the lotus pond. Families can enjoy flexibility and extra space with a suite of two rooms interconnected through a private lounge.

Within walking distance of many of Luang Prabang’s temples, and only minutes away from the famous night market, the Sanctuary is an ideal base to return to after exploring the city. Enjoy fine local cuisine served in the onsite restaurant or out on the terrace, as well as traditional Lao ‘Sin Dat’ barbeque dishes and international-style breakfasts (the crepes, in particular, have an excellent reputation). Learn how the food is made in a cookery class, enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool, pamper yourself with a relaxing massage treatment and finish the day with a house cocktail or two as the sun sets behind the rooftops.
