The 3 Nagas Luang Prabang MGallery Hotel is excited to announce its upcoming MGallery Heritage Days celebration – a remarkable occasion that delves into the rich local history and culture of Luang Prabang, as well as the venue’s historical role as part the enchanting town.
A nostalgic cluster of history and culture Imagine three historical UNESCO world heritage houses, each carrying a century of stories, where vintage French architecture entwines with classic Lao design. As you step into this nostalgic world, you’ll find yourself on a vibrant strip of Luang Prabang’s main street, encircled from both sides by 3 Nagas Luang Prabang MGallery. Just a short stroll and a mindful thought away, you’ll wander to the Royal Palace Museum, the majestic Mount Phousi, and the bustling morning and night markets led by the open-hearted local people of Laos.
Among these curiosities, two of the heritage houses have been transformed into havens of comfort and discovery for our cherished guests. Picture yourself in one of our 15 spacious rooms, gazing out upon a serene garden view that paints a picturesque backdrop of the charming town. It’s a fusion of history and elegance, where colonial furnishings harmonize with the rich tapestry of traditional Lao design.
Each room has a designated name, linking it to the local developments throughout history, as well as notable figures of influence within the region. If your fate brings you to enter room number 4, you’ll join 3 Nagas MGallery Luang Prabang in the remembrance of Auguste Jean-Marie Pavie – a French colonial civil servant, explorer and diplomat; rooms 12 and 13 host the remembrance of the famous French explorers Alexandre Yersin and Louis Delaporte respectively.
Consider the remarkable stories of these houses and their connection to the rapid historical tides that made their way through the region – establishing a link between Laos and the Western powers of old.
Originally, the Lamache House was developed in 1898 for the intimate gatherings of the Royal Court. Fast forward a few decades, and the enterprising grandchildren of Mr. Lamache, the visionary behind this house, embarked on a journey as proprietors of an ice cream emporium. Their delightful treats soon became the talk of Luang Prabang, leading them to be crowned the official ice cream supplier to the Royal Court.
As the sands of time have shifted, we’ve uncovered a touch of their history during our restoration endeavours – three bottles filled with the very essence extracts that once graced their famed ice cream. Today, one of these treasures finds its place of honor at the heart of Lamache House, in the main lobby. With its core structure established at the epicenter of local happenings throughout the past century, 3 Nagas Luang Prabang MGallery provides an exceptional base from which travellers can easily connect with the nostalgic atmosphere and most significant curiosities in the area. A place that continues the tradition of hosting social gatherings in the context of local culture, guests may easily choose between the famed Nagini Bar and the main street paths that lead to a journey of Laos discovery.
This Heritage Day, we invite you to leap into history, feel the echoes of generations past, and create your own stories within these hallowed walls. Join us in celebrating the legacy of 3 Nagas Luang Prabang MGallery, where every corner holds a secret, every piece of wood whispers a tale, and where the very essence of the past is interwoven with the comforts of today.
