The resort arranges airport transfers from and to the airport and I was met at the airport on time with an ice cold water and face towel which I thought was a really nice touch.
The resort is set over the river from Luang Prabang and is reached by an old wooden bridge which may not be to everybody's likeing however tow can be reached by a slightly longer route avoiding the bridge if you want.
The resort is set in beautiful gardens bordering on the Meekong river. The staff are really friendly and helpful. I stayed in a cabin which was spotless. The bath is huge. The cabin has a verandah overlooking the garden.
There are umberellas in the room to borrow as well as slippers and bathrobes.
As others have said bikes are free to hire and really are worth taking in to town.
Luang Prabang itself is stunning. The alms giving is, in my opinion, worth getting up to see you can either go in the resorts mini bus, walk or cycle to town. If you do decide to go please stand a respectful distance from the monks.
Although the resort advertises that it has wifi the signal is not always that good so don't depend on it.
I would certainly stay there again.
