Mr and Mrs Thoulasith have built a brand new 3 story wing onto their iconic Luang namtha guesthouse
The first time we ever came to Luang Namtha more than 6 years ago we stayed at Thoulasith Guesthouse for a few months. It was clean, friendly, comfortable and a lovely place to be.
Recently Mr and Mrs Thoulasith have completed a new 3 story wing to their original guesthouse. Because they are well traveled themselves their rooms are well finished, feature loads of Teak wood, are large and with plenty of natural light.
Unlike many other guesthouses in Luang Namtha; Thoulasith’s is fitted out with nice modern amenities from Thailand instead of cheap and cheerful items from China. All rooms have WiFi access and plenty of hot water from the solar water heaters on the roof.
All rooms have air-conditioning, flat-screen TV’s (Chinese, Lao and Thai channels only I’m afraid), kettle for hot water, free drinking water and table and chairs for lounging on the shared balcony.
There are 3 room types at the new wing of Thoulasith’s Guesthouse
- Twin (2 beds): a twin room has 2 single beds and is 160,000 LAK per night.
- Double (1 bed): the double room has 1 king sized bed and is also 160,000 LAK per night.
- Family (king bed and single bed): the family room is huge at 8 x 4m and has a king sized bed and a single. This room costs 180,000 LAK per night.
Thoulasith guesthouse features 2 wings separated by the carpark and small garden, the new wing (featured in this article) and the older original one which has cheaper rooms and you can read about here
Thoulasith guesthouse is run by Mr and Mrs Thoulasith, who are very friendly and welcoming. They speak a little bit of English and have daughters who live internationally. Their receptionist speaks English well and will help you with anything you need during your stay.
If you want breakfast as part of your stay package you can pay a little extra and get a wonderful Lao fusion breakfast at Bamboo Lounge (directly across the road from the guesthouse) with fresh daily baked bread, the best eggs in Asia and awesome coffee.
Thoulasith is the newest, most modern guesthouse in Luang Namtha, it is centrally located on the main road close to restaurants, trekking offices, the night market and banks.
