Whether for business or leisure, Pullman Luang Prabang offers a relaxing stay you won’t want to check out of.
Although the old adage may warn against mixing business and pleasure, the Pullman Luang Prabang is one exception to the rule. And while the the charming town of Luang Prabang sees new accommodation options open each year, many hotels focus on either leisure or business travelers. The new Pullman Luang Prabang, however, is truly the best of both worlds.
Pullman Luang Prabang, with 123 rooms, stands out as being the largest hotel in the city, yet due to its clever design, feels as cozy and intimate as a private estate. The 16 hectare property is blessed with green rice terraces, while forested mountains crest into view from every direction in the hotel, bringing a sense of peace and natural calm.
A perfect destination for MICE (Meeting, Incentive, Conference, and Exhibition) travelers, Pullman’s meeting facilities are second to none in Luang Prabang. With cutting edge multimedia equipment, a state of the art kitchen, and space for breakout sessions, anything from formal meetings to society galas are well catered for.
The hotel is not simply for MICE travelers, but actually perfect for families, as well. Three swimming pools, and even a pool slide, dot the property. There is also a state of the art fitness center, and even a Kid’s Club fully stocked with toys, games, and staff on hand to teach crafts and look after the children. There are so many activities available for all energy levels – including Tai Chi, Power Walking, Yoga, Water Polo, and even Lao Language lessons.
Pullman’s rooms also offer a supreme level of comfort. The contemporary Lao décor takes the heritage that Luang Prabang is known for, and makes thoughtful modern twists, offering a supreme level of comfort and enjoyment for the modern traveler. Grand verandas offer vistas of the hotel’s rice fields and the mountain peaks beyond. The entry level Deluxe room category is 42 sqm, and feels amply spacious. Other categories are even larger and the top-of-the-line room has two bedrooms and a private pool, for the extra comfort and privacy.
Pullman abides by a “kitchen to table” philosophy at the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant, L’Atelier. Through a number of live cooking stations, guests can see what goes into their food and interact with the people who make it. This holistic approach to cooking brings the guests closer into the process and leaves them with a greater appreciation for the ingredients and skill required to create it. Soon, the hotel’s organic Spice Garden, covering several hectares, will produce a large quantity of the vegetables and herbs used in the hotel.
With its plentiful activities, comfortable space, attention to detail, and superior service, Pullman Luang Prabang excels in every way. There’s never been a better place to mix business and pleasure, so whether visiting on business or relaxing with family, a stay here is a full experience in itself.
