Hotel 3 Nagas

Sakkarin Rd., Ban Wat Nong, Box 722, Luang Prabang, Laos

This colonial mansion stands under official UNESCO World Heritage Site protection, thanks in no small measure to the efforts of the former owner to retain its weathered but handsome look. The two vintage Citroens parked out front, original wooden floors and clay tiles, and the use of dark wood, silks, and homespun local fabrics in the large rooms enhance the colonial ambience. You can buy the fabrics in the hotel shop, along with Lao teas, coffee, and spices. Some rooms have four-poster beds. Deluxe Room 6 has a balcony like that of the executive suite, ideal for watching the morning alms procession of local monks. The Restaurant les 3 Nagas across the street is a longtime favorite for its fine food and elegant surroundings.
