Finding Something?

3 Nagas On Sakkaline, Luang Prabang, Laos

No one will argue against you if you claim that the old town is Luang Prabang’s heart and soul.

If you want to be in the thick of things, staying along Sakkaline Road is the way to go. That way, you will be within walking distance of the most popular restaurants and eateries, the oldest and grandest temples, and the most well-curated shops in town. Along that eponymous street, 3 Nagas comes as The Passport Out’s top choice.

Sofitel Luang Prabang’s sister property may not be an all-suite property, but it sure does justice to its boutique branding. Most guests claim that 3 Nagas has an authentic feel.

Design-wise, the property’s architecture and interior design would leave architecture and interior design enthusiasts swooning. What used to be an estate of a prominent family in town was restored to its former glory and preserved for future generations. The property’s two (2) buildings are both prime examples of French colonial architecture. It doesn’t come as a surprise that both buildings are UNESCO-protected.

Meanwhile, foodies who come here would not be disappointed. The hotel houses the town’s only royally commissioned ice cream parlor – up until before the monarchy was abolished in Laos, that is. Nowadays, the ice cream parlor is just a part of 3 Nagas Restaurant. Nevertheless, the rosella ice cream and coconut ice cream still live up to their regal reputation.

But, after all is said and done, what ultimately sets hotels and resorts apart is their service. Since 3 Nagas only has five (5) guest rooms, understandably, guests here get better service than when in the more expansive Sofitel Luang Prabang. Now, that’s the icing on the cake.
