A Royal Stay

“Everything about this place was enjoyable. The former royal residence was elegant, charming and personable. You feel like staying at someone’s home or should I say palace. When you arrive its like entering into a different era. The decor, rooms and grounds are all beautiful. Lots of nooks to find and settle in.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating – even helped us with learning a view Laotian phrases. Hang out at the poolside bar before heading out.

Very impressed with the hotel restaurant. Great breakfast with fresh bread etc. With so many restaurant choices in LP, we actually chose to eat our last dinner at the hotel and its was best decision. There is also a very good place right across the side street called Manda de Laos – expensive for LP but very reasonable and good.

The one thing that concerned us when we book was the distance to the main area in LP. In reality, being a little secluded was preferable as the hotel was quiet and tranquil. We typically walked into town which takes 5-7 minutes. And if you don’t want to walk its quite easy to get a cheap tuk tuk or take one of the hotel’s bikes. We considered 3 Nagas but we made right choice.

For recommendations in LP, check out Naga Creations. Its owned by a french expat that creates local artisan jewelry. I normally don’t shop on vacation but this was an exception.

We look forward to returning.
