Housed in three UNESCO World Heritage site buildings, it’s surprising the 3 Nagas hotel was ever allowed, but great for guests that it was.
The buildings were restored in 2003 in traditional Lao style but with contemporary touches.
The superior rooms and suites are in two of the houses, the Khamboua and the Lamache. Each room has wooded floors and furniture, traditional torchis walls and a large private terrace or veranda overlooking the bustling street or quiet gardens.
In the third building, the Les 3 Nagas restaurant serves Lao-French haute cuisine, or there is the open-air Mango Tree restaurant, serving Asian-Western fusion cuisine.
One of the houses, the Lamache, was once home to the royal family and later (and bizarrely) an ice cream factory.
