Sala Luang Prabang

Sala Luang Prabang is very centrally located overlooking the Mekong River with very comfortable, air-conditioned rooms (no TV) and a beautiful lobby with couches and a small library. Some might consider it a bit pricey (it was about $40/night in the off season which was a “special” price). When we were there (Sep. 2006) they were in the process of renovating the upstairs rooms which looked like they will be really nice. Across the street is the patio overlooking the Mekong where they serve breakfast (included) which is very picturesque (they are expanding the patio too). The staff are very helpful and friendly, especially Edwin who works the breakfast patio. All of the sights in central Luang Prabang are just a short walk away and the street is a bit quieter than the central road.

Sala Prabang Overview

Sala Prabang is just one of many hotels and resorts around the country that Mr Sinlasone has founded using in either traditional wooden Lao residences or French colonial villas, rebuilding historic buildings to provide modern and comfortable accommodation. Having worked as an architect in Australia for 30 years, Sinlasone is now realising his dream by returning to his native Laos. His renovation of the original Khammao family residence to create a unique experience for 21st century visitors to Laos has been a labour of love. The building was named as a protected structure when Luang Prabang was designated as a World Heritage Site in 1995. Rather than merely recreate the former building, he sought out elements of Luang Prabang expertise which are now rarely used, such as carved stone blocks to make exposed walls. Organic elements are incorporated, with trees growing alongside old pillars and beams. We have to preserve our own character emphasises Mr Sinlasone when waxing lyrical about the culture of his beloved Luang Prabang. As creator of Sala Prabang and as omnipresent host his overriding aim is to preserve the traditional character and ambience while moving forward with innovative design.
