We arrived quite late and because it was so dark we couldn't see what sort of view we had from our front room and balcony. We couldn't believe it when we woke up to see the Mekong just beyond our windows. It's beautiful. The room was spacious and they were kind enough to set up an extra bed and cot... More

We were greeted at the airport by our guest relations host, Tui, who soon became our wonderful guide and help to see the most of this city as well as getting the most out of every day. Mekong Estate is my pick as the most luxurious private and user friendly accommodation available in Luang Prabang. We stayed in the Bambou... More

We loved this place. This was the most pleasant and memorable hotel of our trip to south east asia. Ok so we were a family of 5 who had the hotel to ourselves for 3 of the 4 nights. The pool is stunning, the mekong is at the bottom of an immaculate garden. The rooms were large and full of... More

Don't usually feel a deep sense of loss on leaving a hotel, but we did here. We had a vast house to ourselves that was kept stocked and immaculately clean by friendly staff, and the most magnificent views over the 25 metre pool to the Mekong. Total seclusion yet a 10 minute (free) bicycle ride from probably the best town... More

Stayed in the Bamboo Suite and Garden Loft with friends. The staff was great, food was good, the rooms were excellent. Only draw back was the renovation work going on in the Mekong river. We were informed earlier and got a discount on the rooms. Lesson learned is to get rooms further away from the river if renovation work is... More

I must have spent 20 hours doing accommodation research for Luang Prabang and I must say it paid off. In my opinion Mekong Estate is by far the best and most atmospheric place to stay in LP! I saw many of the other resorts, tried the spas at Phou Vao, de la Paix, Maison Souvannaphoum, had lunch at Amantaka and... More

A beautiful quiet hotel, right on the banks of the Mekong. Perfect as a base for exploring Luang Prabang. You are far enough from town to be away from the hustle and bustle of tourists, but close enough for a 5 min tuk tuk ride. Not advertised in Lonely Planet, this was recommended to us by a retired French Commando!... More
