We were in Luang Prabang for the half marathon, and stayed in one of the Pioneer Suites for two nights. The room was beautiful, with colonial-style furniture and a lovely balcony overlooking the pool. The bar/library in the main house is a very nice place to sit and read and work. The setting of the hotel is fantastic -- quiet,... More

Huge choice of facilities. Nice Location. Great Service. Close to the center of the beautiful city. Nice room and so quiet. Excellent breakfast. I already know my next hotel in Laos when I'll be back.

The service of the staff from start to finish is top notch. The intimacy of the resort and its jungle setting is an oasis. The pioneer suites are fabulous. And the food is outstanding. My only criticism is some of the drink prices are outrageous especially in Laos....$25us for a cosmopolitan. Really?

Very nice location. Very well decorated colonial hotel. Nice room. Quiet. Wonderful garden and pool. Close to the center (and free shuttle to the center). Note that the city is very small and you can get anywhere in 10 min by tuk tuk. Excellent breakfast

In our opinion, we stayed at the best resort we have been in around Asia. We cannot complain anything about the service because it is perfect from the moment we checked in, to the check out, and we are picky guests looking at details. Everything about the service, surroundings and comfort are outstanding. Breakfast in the hotel’s restaurant amazing, the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. The rooms are spacious, clean, have free wifi and the beds are super comfortable. The staff are very helpful. The food in the restaurant was excellent and it was nice not to have a standard breakfast buffet. Someone in an earlier review had mentioned that the Egg's Benedict are great... More

We stayed at this hotel during a stop on our honeymoon in Luang Prabang. We had a pool-view room, which was spacious and quiet (it's an infinity pool!). The service here is amazing, as is the spa. There's a shuttle into town and the concierge had some great recommendations for local dining. I really miss this spot! I recommend it... More

Really lovely hotel. Designed to resemble a colonial plantation. Beautiful spacious rooms, lovely grounds, perhaps the nicest pool I have ever swum in. Attentive staff. Restaurant a little pricey compared to the bargains to be had in the town itself, but very good food and excellent breakfasts. Thoroughly recommend.

This was a wonderful boutique hotel with only about 24 rooms. The rooms were enormous, the beds comfortable four poster beds, the bathrooms were huge and well appointed. The staff were attentive and we barley saw another guest in our four days here. The hotel is a little out of town but the hotel runs a TukTuk shuttle each evening.... More
