Opening in October 2016, boutique hotel The President by Akaryn, has joined the Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) portfolio.
Located in the historic city of Vientiane, the capital of Laos, between Parliament House and the Presidential palace and opposite the Chou Anouvong Park, the property was originally built as a gift to the Laotians by the Chinese government.
The hotel, with a decor featuring traditional Laotian design and French neoclassical influences, has 32 rooms and suites with marble floors. Many rooms have views of the grounds and the ‘English country-house’-inspired garden maze.
The Ayurah Wellness Spa offers Linda Meredith products and therapies, and there are four dining spaces, offering Mediterranean, French and traditional Laos cuisine, as well as an international buffet.
The President by Akaryn is joined by the Hotel Único in Madrid and the French Coco hotel in Tartane, Martinique, which both enter the SLH portfolio this month.
