Maison Souvannaphoum Hotel

Luang Prabang, Laos

Maison Souvannaphoum Hotel

Once the private palace of the late prince Souvannaphoum, Maison Souvannaphoum is a small hotel with a charming staff and, despite its heritage, a very relaxed atmosphere.

The gorgeous Maison Souvannaphoum can quite literally claim to be a palace, or former palace at least, for this small boutique hotel was once the home of the late Prince Souvannaphoum. No longer a royal home, today the Souvannaphoum is owned by the Thai Angsana hotel group and has undergone extensive renovations during its conversion into a luxury hotel, but it retains much of its original charm and character. You can even choose to stay in Souvannaphoum’s former royal suite.

A blend of French colonial architecture and Laotian design, Maison Souvannaphoum is part of the historic fabric of Luang Prabang. It is situated right in the heart of the town’s Old Quarter, amid Buddhist temples and French-accented villas. The night market is only a few minutes’ walk away.


Maison Souvannaphoum offers 24 rooms and suites furnished with rich silk fabrics in red and gold, original parquet flooring, high ceilings and all the expected modern comforts. Despite the age of the hotel, most of the rooms are furnished in a contemporary style. Each room has a spacious private balcony/terrace furnished with comfortable wicker chairs.


The Elephant Blanc restaurant serves delicious French, Loatian and Indochinese cuisine.

Luang Prabang’s night market, with its many restaurants and food stalls, is a short stroll from Maison Souvannaphoum.
