The President Hotel by AKARYN, a new indulgent retreat in the heart of Vientiane, Laos
Inspired by its setting, the hotel is uniquely located between the House of Parliament, the Presidential Palace and the temple of the Emerald Buddha. With only 30 spacious rooms, including two grand presidential suites with private butler service around the clock, the calming colour palate and elegant fittings will provide guests with a sanctuary from the city outside.
Originally built for the Laotians by the Chinese Government as a ‘gift’, The President by AKARYN will blend original Laotians design with colonial influence to reflect the heritage of Laos and its bright future.
Fine dining with an ever-evolving menu of delicacies both locally and globally inspired will be served in a choice of seven dining options. High tea will be created daily by celebrated pastry chefs from around the world. All manner of private events will be hosted in grand style with intimate dining rooms and an impressive stately ballroom for up to a thousand guests.
The President by AKARYN will also house an exclusive private member’s club, with access to a cigar lounge, humidor and whisky cellar that will present one of the finest and largest selection of cigars found in this region of Asia, with tutored whisky tastings held on a monthly basis.
The revolutionary Ayurah Wellness Centre will deliver an entirely new approach to fitness and healing for Laos. With treatments and bespoke programmes based on the four pillars of Ayurah Wellness – Weight Optimisation, Anti-Aging, Mind Balance and Detoxification – guests will benefit from both Eastern and Western philosophies to nurture the mind, body and spirit.
The intricately landscaped gardens offer a flow of manicured spaces and lush tropical gardens to explore. Embracing the AKARYN concept of outside living, guests can cool off in the pool, dine under the stars, or take in a classical music concert in the private gardens every Sunday. Venturing out during a stay, guests may stroll directly to the Vientiane’s Central Park and the beautiful Mekong River.
Stays will start from $350 per night, including breakfast.
