We went for two days, and wished we had spent more time. An absolute oasis of calm, a room with a beautiful river view, a wonderful village with delicious noodle soup near by, and the most warm, friendly staff. Watch out for the Elephant Village close to the resort - very touristy, but completely avoidable. This is a place to... More

Very friendly reception by Jenny. Large rooms and outside showers with hot water. Lovely balcony overlooking the Khan river. Lots of electricity plugs to load your various batteries. Signage is absent, so one may get lost in the resort. The food is good, but not matching LP cuisine. Trek & canoe is a great 5 hours experience.

When arriving we were surprised by the spacious bungalows overlooking the river and an outdoor shower with blue tiles. We felt diving into the jungle of Laos and leaving the relative busy town of Luang Prabang. The evenings were pleasant overlooking the river and watching an ever changing landscape. The restaurant food was excellent and offers a nice variety between... More

We stayed at the Lao Spirit Resort in November last year as part of our honeymoon and we can just describe it as simply amazing! From all the places / hotels we visited on our trip through Laos, Vietnam and the Philippines, this has been one of the best! It is located in the jungle and gives you amazing options... More

We stayed here as family of 4 in two bungalows for 2 nights. While we enjoyed our stay, we could probably have done the same activities from Luang Prabang and continued to enjoy the charm of the town. Our views were coloured by staying at the end of the dry season, when it was extremely hot and one of the... More

We spent two nights at Lao Spirit but wish we'd stayed longer. A short bumpy drive from Luang Prabang and we were in a different world. Sitting on the balcony of our beautiful room we watched local villagers setting up their fish traps and buffalo wallowing in the river shallows. The restaurant served good meals at very reasonable prices. The... More

We stayed here for two nights. It is hard to express in words how special this place is. It is in a class of its own. A real laos experience. In accomodation with local style. Employing and training people from the nearby village. All beautifully managed by Channy who unobtrusively ensures your every need is met. The food is superb... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights In Bungalow 2. When I arrived the views are breath taking. You can see the river and the mountains. It is also so quiet and peaceful at the resort. The bungalows are carved from wood and look amazing. On arrival we were escorted to reception and provided with a drink. Then shown... More

Our stay in Lao Spirit was part of the second leg of our trip around Luang Prabang. This hotel was book with the intent of being a retreat in the middle of the jungle, wherein we could rest but also do challenging outdoor activities; it complied with our expectation. The bungalows are as you can see from the pictures, amazing.... More
