After a full refurbishment to its colonial-era Lao wooden house, Ssen Mekong reopened in October 2016, inviting guests to experience Luang Prabang from the enchanting heart of the old-town peninsula.
Its tranquil riverfront location is a few minutes’ walk from Luang Prabang’s best cafes and restaurants, majestic temples, the Royal Palace, Mount Phousi, and the town's main street –the site of the sacred Buddhist alms ceremony by morning and the eclectic craft market by night.
Ssen Mekong offers a unique combination of Laotian charm and western luxury on a small-scale for independent, discerning travelers. The five spacious guestrooms highlight traditional Lao craftsmanship while maximizing comfort through modern touches such as rain showers and plush bedding. The upstairs rooms feature full-length balconies with river views.
The property is staffed 24/7 with an English-speaking team of Lao natives, who are always ready to offer personalized service and local knowledge. Transport can be arranged to and from Luang Prabang Airport, as well as to nearby attractions. Information on bus tickets and car rentals are also available.
