AccorHotels is bringing its distinct French art-de-vivre to Southeast Asia with a series of luxurious new hotel openings in the region. Three strategic and stylish new hotels:  Sofitel Luang Prabang in Laos, Veranda Resort Pattaya in Thailand, from the MGallery by Sofitel collection,  Pullman Vung Tau, fourth Pullman hotel in Vietnam

“These three key hotels collectively represent the luxurious diversity and reach of AccorHotels Luxury & Upscale brands, and individually embody the essence of their respective destination,” said Patrick Basset, COO of Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia. “From Laos to Thailand to Vietnam, our new hotels are an elegant choice at these key destinations.”

Sofitel’s new hotel is located in Luang Prabang, the UNESCO World Heritage site full of color, charm and timeless splendor. The hotel is located in the century-old former governor’s mansion which has been restored to its full grandeur and majestic grace. The hotel serves as a gallery, housing an array of Indochinese art, a wine cellar and library with one of Luang Prabang’s largest collection of books.

MGallery by Sofitel announces the opening of Veranda Resort Pattaya. Located on Na Jomtien beach, famed for its natural beauty and fishing heritage, this charming boutique hotel combines a stylish modern design with a sense of seafaring life. The hotel features 145 rooms and suites.

The newly-opened Pullman Vung Tau is the first five-star international hotel in this seaside destination. Featuring the largest meeting facilities in Southern Vietnam, and spectacular views of Back Beach and Front Beach, Pullman Vung Tau is especially ideal for leisure and business travelers seeking a quick getaway from Ho Chi Minh city, just a 1.5-hour drive away. The hotel has 356 spacious rooms and suites, and each room category provides breathtaking views of the city and sea, along with complimentary Wi-Fi.

The hotel also offers 2,036 square metres of flexible meeting and event space. The meeting rooms are equipped with the latest technology, flat screen LCDs, teleconferencing services and high-speed Wi-Fi. Gym fanatics can workout at the 24/7 Fit Lounge, or relax with a dip at the hotel pool.
