“Felt Like Home in Laos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

This was by far the highlight of my trip to Laos. The staff was incredible from offering rides into town and special drop offs, always having a friendly smile, and giving amazing recommendations. They really went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. The breakfast was delicious, my favorite was their homemade yogurt every morning and also the Saffron coffee they served that is from the region. The breakfast staff was friendly and always ready to accommodate you with more coffee or extra juice.

The free shuttle into town was perfect and you could always arrange for them to pick you up from the drop off destination at any time you wanted. I would usually carry around the hotel's phone number and have any of the shops or cafes call for me whenever I was ready to get a ride home. Another option would have been to take a $2 Tuk Tuk back. They also had an early drop off at 5:30am for any of the guest that wanted to go into town to give Alms to the monks, which is something I took advantage of everyday.

The facilities at the hotel were well kept and the rooms were spacious and modern The staff did a great job of making sure the room was always clean and cool. They even left fresh fruit and goodies everyday, which was nice to come home to.

Kiridara was a fantastic hotel in Laos and I would recommend this beautiful place to everyone. Very much looking forward to my next visit. Thank you Francis and team for a memorable stay in a gorgeous country.

We were lucky enough to stay at the Kiridara in Luang Prabang for 4 nights.
We loved the location as the atmosphere was serene yet it was only a few minutes from the main town with a free shuttle in and a cheap tuk tuk ride home.
The poolside view of the jungle topped hills and the Pho Si temple was perfect after a day out.
Friendly and helpful staff, the manager made a point of speaking to us every day, we felt well looked after.
The hotel restaurant was fine although be aware of food all being brought at the same time Lao style.
Luang Prabang has quite a few good restaurant options.
The rooms are spacious and the hotel is tastefully designed and decorated.
The spa was great and quite reasonably priced.
They do a good parent and child package.
We definitely felt our money was well spent.

This place has totally made our holiday. Rooms are gorgeous, staff are so accommodating and the views are breathtaking. My friend and I agree it has the nicest pool we've ever been in and overall there really was nothing to fault with our stay. Slightly further out of town than most but free bus service in was perfect and we walked back quietly most days. Probably one of my top five hotels ever. Really can't fault it!

Nice hotel with enough staff. Friendly people always willing to help. The hotel has free shuttle to down town whenever you like. Very good massage in the Spa. The only thing we missed is more fresh fruit juices for breakfast. Also we missed the possibility to ake more clear light in the room

Room Tip: Quiet rooms, close to down town. Nice view There are a few rooms in front of the swimming pool. Ni...

Quite, lovely and beautiful place in the middle of nowhere in Luang Prabang, Laos. Big, clean and lovely rooms. Good room service. Kindly staff, serviceminded, always with a smile. The swimming pool is made for extravagant rest. The staff gave good recomodations for restaurants and trips in the area around. After visiting many hotels in South East Asia, this is number one.

we stayed at the kiridara for 6 nights and truly loved the place. Francis and his team are fantastic and know how to proviode the highest standard of service.

On the 2nd day the water stopped working in our room so, after a little detour to a lesser room, Francis upgraded us to an amazing suite for the rest of our stay.

The pool is wonderful and the food some of the best we have had in SE Asia (we recommend the curries and pad thai).

there is a bus shuttle service which is good and free bicyles that can be used to get into town.

the cake and flowers (2 bunches!) for my g/fs bday were a nice touch!

would recommend this hotel

Liked:
* pool, and views from the pool
* spacious rooms and comfortable bed
* friendly staff and service
* good gym

Didn't like:
* On the edge of the town so you have to get a tuk tuk or lift down (latter is free). Not a big deal, just a bit of a pain
* Ancillary services are expensive compared to prices in town
