Pullman Hotel Opens in Luang Prabang, Laos

Accor has opened the first Pullman hotel in the former royal capital town of Luang Prabang in Laos.

The 16-hectare resort features 123 guest rooms, suites, and a two-bedroom villa scattered amongst infinity pools, watercourses and tumbling streams.

Entry level accommodation starts with a spacious Deluxe Room (42 sqm) and extends to the Two-bedroom Villa complete with separate living and dining areas, garden and pool.

In keeping with Luang Prabangs cultural heritage, the low-rise architecture draws heavily on traditional Laotian influences from Chinas Yunnan province just nearby the border.

We are delighted to introduce our first Pullman property in Laos. The resort styled hotel encapsulates the Pullman spirit of bringing global nomads together in the historical town of Luang Prabang, said Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer of AccorHotels, Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and the Maldives.

Sustainability plays a key role in its F&B offerings, with menus featuring dishes made exclusively with local produce with organic in-house dairy products, fruits, vegetables, and herbs from nearby farming communities and local buffalo homesteads.

The all-day dining LAtelier restaurant offers a range of buffet and la carte menu options while The Junctions offers the Pullman brand signature Tapastry and Vinoteca which features a curated selection of wines and signature cocktails. Set amidst landscaped gardens and paddy fields, H2O pool bar serves a healthy choice of salad selections, sandwiches and homemade gourmet ice creams.

In line with AccorHotels Planet 21 initiatives, Pullman Luang Prabang is committed to supporting the local childrens hospital, wildlife conservation efforts and local handicrafts, and preserving traditions including strict guidelines for alms-giving to monks.

The resort is also home to Luang Prabangs largest conference centre that boasts floor to ceiling glass windows with natural light and features state-of-the-art events and meetings facilities for power meetings, corporate incentive getaways and intimate weddings that can cater up to 300 guests.

The hotel also features a gym, spa, kids club, paddling pool and a large pool with a waterslide.

The resort is 10 minutes away from the UNESCO World Heritage Old Town that features a range of hip cafes and hobby shops while golfers can enjoy a game of golf at the 380-hectare Luang Prabang Golf Course that boasts 18 crafted fairways extending all the way to the Mekong River.

As the largest resort in the town Pullman Luang Prabang features low density designs on expansive grounds, its comprehensive meetings and events facilities make the resort a destination in itself with its natural surroundings and we look forward to welcoming leisure and business travellers, said Jean Marc Lafosse, General Manager of Pullman Luang Prabang.

AccorHotels currently has five hotels in Laos including three properties in Luang Prabang and two in Vientiane.
