Akaryn to Open 30-Room Hotel in Vientiane, Laos

Akaryn Hotel Group is to expand its portfolio of hotels in Asia with a new property in Vientiane, Laos.

The President by Akaryn, scheduled to open in March 2016, has just 30 rooms and is located between the House of Parliament, the Presidential Palace and the temple of the Emerald Buddha.

Originally built for the Laotians by the Chinese government as a gift, The President by Akaryn will blend original Laos design with colonial influences to reflect the heritage of Laos and its bright future.

The hotel will house an exclusive private member's club, an Ayurah Wellness Centre and offer guests a choice of seven dining options as well as a ballroom for up to 1000 guests.

Anchalika Kijkanakorn, Managing Director and Founder of Akaryn Hotel Group, said, "Vientiane has long been a favourite destination of mine, and we are proud to offer a wonderfully unique hotel both for guests wishing to enjoy the city and the region and for business travellers as well as play host to weddings and other celebratory events on an intimate or grand scale. We are very excited to be able to preserve the heritage of this stunning building and re-instate it as one of the most spectacular landmarks in Laos."
