Maison Souvannaphoum

Luang Prabang, Laos

Colorful and quirky, Maison Souvannaphoum was once the residence of the late Prince Souvanna Phouma. It's now a beautiful boutique hotel located conveniently close to Luang Prabang's night market and its array of temples and restaurants.

At a Glance

  • A great location, just walking distance from Luang Prabang's night market

  • Contemporary and clean interiors. It's not a luxurious hotel but it's very comfortable and stylish

  • Service standards in Laos are slow, but we found the service at Maison Souvannphoum to be quite good when compared to other hotels

  • Peaceful gardens and pool area. It's a lovely place to relax

  • A great option for both couples and families

Insider's View

If your budget allows, go for one of the rooms in the main house as they are more spacious and a little more spoiling.

Maison Souvannaphoum is a 25-room boutique hotel that's sits within fragrant gardens, just walking distance from the Mekong river and the plethora of boutiques, restaurants and temples found in Luang Prabang. The colonial exterior is nicely complimented by the rich and colorful interiors. It's unique, airy and full of character and we feel it's a haven to return to after a steamy tour of the town.

The rooms boast beautiful polished parquet flooring, king-size beds and garden views. The Garden View rooms are a little on the small side, but with interconnecting options they are perfect for families. For couples wanting more space, we recommend the Champa Room, Laos Room or the Maison Room that sit within the main historic building.

To the back of the property you find a wonderful cool swimming pool, overlooked by the restaurant, Elephant Blanc. Dining here is a real treat, the restaurant serves modern Indo-Chinese cuisine. There's even a 10-course Laos tasting menu, and ideal way to taste the regional dishes of Laos in style.

Within the garden you'll also find a small, highly regarded, spa.

Maison Souvannaphoum is a fantastic option for those wanting a bit of comfort in a great location. Run by the Thai group, Angsana, the service levels here are a little better than some of the other boutique options in Luang Prabang. It's a great all-rounder.


There are 25 rooms in total divided into several different categories. The Garden Wing rooms are the most affordable; these are small but perfectly formed, with balconies, polished parquet flooring and king-size beds. Interconnecting rooms are available making this a good option for families. The La Residence Room boasts colonial architecture with colorful Laotian furnishings. This is perfect if you need twin beds. These are located within the La Residence Wing, and offer partial pool views and a king-size bed. The Champa Room, also found in La Residence Wing, is more of a suite. This room boasts a separate lounge, bathtub and views of the garden. The aptly named Laos Room is the resort's second largest room with some traditional Laos art and furnishings. It offers a spacious bathroom, polished wooden floors and garden views. Largest of all is the Maison Room; this wonderfully light and airy room enjoys the same polished parquet floors and feels more luxurious.


Maison Souvannaphoum welcomes children, although there are no specific family suites or facilities for children, there are, however, interconnecting rooms in the garden wing which do work well for families of four.


Facilities include a spa, the Elephant Blanc restaurant and in-room dining.
