Set amongst the trees and manicured gardens just off Nam Phou fountain, the Maison is steeped in history and colonial charm. Until 1975 the private residence of Prince Souvanna Phoumma, former prime minister in the Royal Lao Government, the old L'Hotel Souvannaphoum has been given a face-lift and reopened under the Colours of Angsana banner. The beautifully restored La Residence wing offers one twin and three suites, the largest of which, the Maison Suite, was the prince's bedroom. La Residence rooms retain their original parquet floors and guests here receive nice perks like afternoon tea and discounts at the boutique. Rooms in the newer Garden Wing are small but elegant, with recessed lighting, unique wall nooks, and oversized daybeds that convert into extra beds. Spacious marble balconies, furnished with comfortable wicker chairs, overlook the gardens and small but inviting swimming pool. Unfortunately, the spa is not up to Angsana's normally high standards. Due to UNESCO restrictions, it is housed in tents set close to the main road, rendering the treatment areas noisy and lacking in privacy. Head to the Phou Vao for your spa needs instead.
