The Sanctuary Hotel was my favorite in a three-week multi-hotel visit to Southeast Asia - my favorite by a long shot. The hotel is secluded and private with its own lily pond and multiple bungalow arrangement. There are lawns and gardens; birds and excellent shade trees; and its own restaurant. In addition, the hotel lies on a main route that... More

We stayed in Luang Prabang for 8 days, a lot of it thanks to our lovely experience at this literal sanctuary. The hotel is very peaceful, and easely became a home for us. The rooms are great, with good wifi reception, international tv, and air conditioning that works great. The service is the best you can get, with your room... More

Really really loved this place (it's hard not to love Luang Prabang). Great location, helpful staff, delicious dining area, fast laundry service, comfy bed (maybe not an A+ for pillows), decent WiFi (better on your deck, but don't just sit there on your phone!) and very quiet. Spa next door very tranquil. We **loved** our stay - no complaints! -... More

Spent an extended weekend in this hotel. The hotel area is very nice with the pond and plants, even though the neighboring buildings are not so much. The hotel was very quiet but is still just couple of minutes from the walking street and the monk morning ceremony. Also, if you want to rent a motorbike you can park it... More

We decided to splash out a bit and treat ourselves to a nice hotel in LP - we had room 301 on the ground floor and although there was a bit of a blockage problem in the toilet for the first day or so, it was resolved very quickly. The rooms stay cool and are tastefully decorated and it is... More

Lovely setting, beautifully maintained gardens, good location, comfortable rooms and friendly staff, all at a surprisingly low cost, particularly in Luang Prabang which is generally quite expensive these days. It's a bit of a shame the restaurant/bar shuts at 10pm, but that's just a small gripe.

This truly is an incredible hotel. It is the perfect retreat. The staff are friendly & helpful. It is situated in the heart of town. Everything you could want is a short walk away. The rooms are almost spotless. The bar & restaurant are fantastic.

We had several issues with our room (poorly working air-con and a terrible smell) and the wifi, which were quickly resolved, with good grace and professionalism. It was over 40deg C when we stayed, and our eventual room was always comfortable, and very clean. The staff were so friendly, courteous and helpful, and the grounds are gorgeous. Great location too,... More

I stayed here for five days in May and really enjoyed the Sanctuary Hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean, breakfast served a good assortment of dishes, and the location of the hotel was great - just a short walk from the main street on the peninsula. A special mention for all the staff - from the front desk to... More
