Avani to open new hotel in Laos
Avani Hotels & Resorts launches its first hotel in the historic town of Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in northern Laos.
The 53-room hotel is located on a narrow peninsula at the joining of the Nam Khan and Mekong Rivers. Currently known as the Azerai Hotel, the rebrand will be completed in March 2018.
The French neo-classical architectural design resembles the style of the grand villas found in Luang Prabang. The hotel is situated on the doorstep of the famous night market where guests will find locally made appliqué blankets, Hmong batik fabrics, lamps, wall hangings, silver jewellery and unusual paper.
Avani Hotels & Resorts currently 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 including in new destinations such as South Korea, the Maldives, Mauritius, Tunisia and Oman.
