Nestled by the river about 2 km from central LP this a beautiful place to stay for those who want to explore the area. The rooms are lovely with balconies overlooking the river and pool and the sound of wildlife is mixed with the genuine Lao traditions in houses nearby. Nor thng that makes this place really special are the... More

We moved here to get away from the noise in our more centrally located hotel. After 4 sleepless nights we were desperate for some peace and quiet and felt that we hit the jackpot with Mekong Estate. Toey, one of the managers, could not have been more helpful or charming and we were soon installed in the Garden Loft, which... More

This is truly a special place - hidden away amidst a small Laos village, with a superb location on the Mekong River. We stayed in the Bamboo Suite - really beautiful, tasteful and spacious accommodation. Mr Touy and our housekeeper were very attentive - a fantastic breakfast was served to us in our room every morning and Mr Touy drove... More

We went to Mekong estates for the duration of our stay in Luangprabang. Before that, we had been in another hotel outside the city where unfortunately, I got sick. Once we got into Mekong Estates, we were ushered inside by Tuey and May. I personally never really met Tuey for I was in bed for most of the trip, but... More

Delicious breakfast in the room (overlooking the Mekong) and a helpful and friendly staff. We could use the bikes to go to the city which is not really far, but we also... More

My wife & I recently spent five nights at Mekong Estate, which we had booked primarily due its excellent reviews. We were not disappointed & loved every moment there. We stayed in the Jade Suite, which we would highly recommend for a couple. This is large, airy, & comfortably appointed, with a long, reasonably wide balcony that provides some stunning... More

Stayed three nights with a group of friends at the Rouge Maison. The place is fantastic, from anywhere in the villa you can see the river. It is really a good place to relax, however if you want to be at the middle of it all is not recommended as it is five minutes taxi ride from the city and... More

What a beautiful and delightful place, right on the banks of Mekong River! Accomodation is perfect : our villa is tastefully decorated and spacious - nothing hides the view onto the majestic river flowing peacefully in front of our eyes, an unforgettable sight!!

My first impression of this hotel began before I arrived. Miss Dee Dee, whom I emailed with to arrange our trip, was extremely responsive and helpful. She came to the airport with a driver to pick us up, which was a nice and welcome surprise. As others have mentioned, the hotel is found down a very local, small dirt street.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mekong Estate lives up to its name with five stately Lao-colonial style villas, all with a stunning vista of the majestic Mekong River and mountains. Each of the property's 10 well-appointed rooms and suites has a river view, private terrace and kitchen, and is designed to be your home away from home. Founded in 2005 as the first residence service in Luang Prabang, guests get to discover a local atmosphere and home-style comfort, an experience unparalleled to staying at a hotel in town. The rooms boast ample space, light, character and charm. Spacious living extends to the outdoors with verandas, immaculate tropical gardens, a 25m long swimming pool and of course, the property's namesake river.
