Hotel de la Paix expands into Thailand, Laos5 Mar, 2012
Asian brand Hotel de la Paix expanded into Thailand and Laos, with the launch of the Hotel de la Paix Cha Am Beach Hua Hin and Hotel de la Paix Luang Prabang.
Both properties feature designs by Thailand architect Duangrit Bunnag and will build on the arts and community positioning established by the brand's first property, Hotel de la Paix Siem Reap.
Hotel de la Paix Cha Am Beach has been described as “an architectural statement where every vista is an epiphany and every angle a photo opportunity, set against the seaside charm of unspoiled Cha Am.” It features a grand courtyard, a stretch of white marble stairs, and a rooftop reflection pool, among others.
The property also has 60 square meter (over 645 square feet) standard studios with four meter (over 13 feet) high ceiling to floor glass in Bunnag's signature “spacial poetry” style, complimentary mini bar, and a customized shower.

The Hotel de la Paix's 79 studios and pool villas also feature WiFi, 42-inch flatscreen TV, Apple TV pre-loaded with music and movies, and an in-built home theatre system. The Pool Villas are 260 square meters (over 2,798 square feet), with a 3.8 x 9.6 meter (approximately 12.5 x 31.5 feet) swimming pool. Each villa features a master bedroom, lounge and dining areas, and a convertible space that may be used as a second bedroom, nursery or study.
Hotel de la Paix Luang Prabang stands upon a UNESCO site in the former royal capital of Laos. Once a Governor's mansion, a garrison and briefly a jail, the structure has been restored. Today, it has 23 suites, each with a walled rear garden and a terrace overlooking a courtyard, some with their own swimming pools.
The property also features Baan Silpa, a faithfully recreated Laos village where local craftsman and artisans go about their business, around a shaded grass square bounded by two traditional pavilions.
The Hotel de la Paix Siem Reap, the brand's first property, has been named one of the top 100 Asian hotels by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler and one of the Top 15 Resorts Asia by Travel + Leisure magazine.
