Avani to make Laotian debut at World Heritage Site
POSTED 09 Jan 2018 . BY Jane Kitchen
Avani Hotels & Resorts will open a location in the ancient city of Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in northern Laos, in March.

The 53-bedroom hotel will be located on a narrow peninsula at the joining of the Nam Khan and Mekong Rivers and features French neoclassical architectural design in the style of the grand villas found in Luang Prabang.

The AvaniSpa offers two single and two double treatment rooms with a communal relaxation area.

The AvaniSpa concept adopts an individual approach to wellness; problematic body zones are assessed and a treatment recommended from one of four results-driven options: Boost, Balance, Calm or Purify.

AvaniFit focuses on lifestyle elements that promote a healthy body and healthy mind, and the hotel’s gym will offer a range of cardiovascular and strength equipment.

Daily yoga classes will also be offered and there will be a 25m swimming pool and pool bar serving smoothies, fresh juices and shared-platters.

“Luang Prabang has long been a bucket-list destination for travellers throughout Southeast Asia with its ancient temples, beautiful French UNESCO listed architecture and stunning riverside scenery,” said Alejandro Bernabe, VP operations at Avani Group Hotel Operations.

The Avani Luang Prabang be the ninth Avani property in Southeast Asia – the portfolio already includes five properties in Thailand, two in Vietnam and one in Malaysia.

Avani Hotels & Resorts – a division of Minor Hotels – operates 21 properties in Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Africa and Europe, most recently debuting in both Australia and New Zealand.

The brand has a strong pipeline of new properties under development, with new locations including South Korea, the Maldives, Mauritius, Tunisia and Oman.
