Minor Hotels Group to Take Over Management of Luxury Hotel in Luang Prabang, Laos

Minor Hotels Group has signed the first Avani hotel in the historic town of Luang Prabang, an UNESCO World Heritage Site in northern Laos.

 The 53-room hotel is located on a narrow peninsula at the joining of the Nam Khan and Mekong Rivers.

Currently operating as the Azerai Hotel, the rebrand will be completed in March 2018.

The French neo-classical architectural design resembles the style of the grand villas found in Luang Prabang. The guest rooms offer an open plan living experience with French-styled louvered wooden doors that open out to a balcony overlooking either the pool or a private courtyard. The interior design draws inspiration from its colonial French heritage, yet the design approach is modern, functional and elegant.

The Bistro serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, indoors or outdoors. The menu favours classic Bistro and Lao dishes, and the upstairs bar with its street-side veranda offers the ideal perch from which to observe the daily rhythms of Luang Prabang local life.

The spa offers two single and two double treatment rooms with a communal relaxation area while the comprehensive fitness centre focuses on lifestyle elements that promote a healthy body and healthy mind. Daily Yoga classes will also be offered and there is a 25m swimming pool and pool bar serving smoothies, fresh juices and shared-platters.

An outdoor, covered sixtysquare metre Pavilion provides a multi-use space, ideal for small wedding ceremonies, social events and casual meetings.

The hotel is situated on the doorstep of the famous night market where guests will find locally made appliqué blankets, Hmong batik fabrics, lamps, wall hangings, silver jewellery and unusual paper.

The hotel will offer a variety of excursions including a selection of daily and overnight Mekong River cruises and a guided hike up Mount Phousi. Other excursions will include trips to waterfalls, biking, antique shopping, cooking classes and visits to the many different Buddhist temples.

“Luang Prabang has long been a bucket-listed destination for travellers throughout South East Asia with its ancient temples, beautiful French UNESCO listed architecture and stunning riverside scenery,” said VP Operations, Avani Group Hotel Operations, Alejandro Bernabe. “Plus with the recently launch Mekong Kingdom Cruises, that offer day trips or overnight cruises to the resort from Thailand, the new hotel is a welcome addition to the AVANI brand.

Mr. Andrew Jannson has been appointed as the new General Manager of the property, joining from Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort where he held the position of Hotel Manager.
