To start planning your vacation to 3 Nagas Luang Prabang
3 Nagas is a small and elegant hotel located in three beautifully restored traditional houses in Luang Prabang's beautiful UNESCO protected quarter. Blending Lao heritage with contemporary design in a unique and stylish environment, 3 Nagas has been lovingly brought back to life and is perfect for those who prefer character over 5* luxury.
Each of the 15 rooms and suites is brimming with character; they are decorated in elegant period furnishings, with four-poster beds, antique wooden flooring, and luxurious Lao silk fabrics. They all come with spacious terraces overlooking the street or garden, perfect for watching daily life unfold.
There are two restaurants at 3 Nagas, one offering exceptional fine dining with some of the best Laotian cuisine there is, and the other a more casual al fresco venue under the mango tree. You'll also find a library filled with magazines, novels and reference books providing an insight into the fascinating history and culture of this extraordinary destination. There's also a small boutique.
With its central location in Luang Prabang, 3 Nagas is the perfect base for exploring this charming and enthralling town. 3 Nagas is by no means luxurious, but it radiates history and charm and we feel it's a wonderful option in an unbeatable central location.
In total there are 12 rooms and three suites that are dotted between two of the hotel's three buildings, The Khamboua and The Lamache and the newer building across the road, which is home to the restaurant. The Khamboua House was built in 1903, during the heyday of the French colonial rule. It has a garden opening up onto the Nam Khan River. The Lamache House was built in 1898 to house the royal family and in the 1930s was then converted into an ice cream factory. It was painstakingly restored in 1995 and is now home to several of the rooms. The spacious rooms blend traditional materials of local silks and dark wood with contemporary design and all have private terraces or verandas, exquisite bathrooms and offer plenty of space. They are not luxurious but they ooze charm.
Children are welcome at 3 Nagas but there are no specific facilities here other than babysitting which can be arranged on request. Luang Prabang has plenty to offer kids from cycling to kayaking, visiting caves, waterfalls and even a nearby elephant camp.
The hotel's signature 3 Nagas Restaurant has earned a reputation as one of the city's best, and combines fresh Lao cuisine and innovative fusion dishes in a fine dining atmosphere. The casual open-air Mango Tree serves light and tasty Western food and a great selection of drinks and cocktails. The hotel also has a small boutique and library.
Luang Prabang is a wonderful city for exploration on foot or by bike. Verdant riverbanks, glistening temples, the Royal Palace Museum, the night market and nearby caves and waterfalls are just some of the ways to pass the time.
