The Newrest Adventurers discover Lao regional specialties

The Newrest Adventurers are carrying on their round the world in Laos, after several years of travel in our Group countries.

Inspired by an event program launched at a Group level two years ago, the Newrest Adventurers are keeping up their discovery trip in Laos.

The new event program in Laos has newly been released! This year, our Adventurers and all our guests in Laos restaurants will discover the rich regional specialties of Laos.


Since 2017, Newrest has been present in Laos starting its activities with the NTPC contract. Most investment comes from China, Vietnam and Thailand and applies to tourism, the mining sector and a few major projects such as the Nam Theun 2 (NTPC) hydroelectric dam, for which EDF is one of the main partners.

Our NTPC customer’s hydroelectric dam project is the largest in South East Asia. The site is relatively isolated, 7 hours away from the capital Vientiane. NTPS employees work as engineers, technicians and administrators and for the development of the region’s populations. In all, 350 people across 3 sites have been bene ting from the range of services proposed by Newrest Laos 125-people team: catering, laundry, gardening, events at the different sites and even pizza delivery!

Newrest Laos has introduced English classes for all its employees to improve in-house communication and communication with the customer. 88 % come from neighbouring villages and 96 % of Newrest Laos employees are Lao. The subsidiary is currently studying the feasibility of using certain certified organic producers to support local activity.
