Pullman Luang Prabang

Mar 18, 2019

With the feel of a small village encircled by paddy-field views, Pullman Luang Prabang masters its space with a wealth of activities devoted to kids. Amid greenery threaded with wandering paths and streams, there’s a pool for infants, and another with a waterslide (plus an infinity pool, for the adults, of course). The Kids’ Club, the only one of its kind in this increasingly popular city, entertains tots and teens with books, games and toys at an indoor playground. Where it really shines is with its diverse class offerings in crafts, baking and fitness—think hula-hoops, face painting and waffle- making. An introduction to their Lao holiday destination sees kids garden, feed fish and cultivate rice through workshops in the field. Adults sleep easy, too, with interconnecting rooms, or extra beds in Deluxe-suite living rooms just a skip, hop and jump to all the playground fun. — Claire Boobbyer
