Travelers' Choice
Blessed with a hilltop vantage point, La Résidence Phou Vao, a Belmond Hotel, is a serene sanctuary in Luang Prabang. Just a short ride away, the ancient Laotian capital and UNESCO World Heritage site awaits with its striking architecture and laidback feel. Serenity is everything in this retreat. Sculpted grounds, lush with bougainvillaea and frangipani, give way to endless cloud forest. A cliff-edge infinity pool beckons for a dip. The celebrated spa offers open-air pavilions clustered around a lily pond. Exceptional gastronomy, cookery classes, dance shows and a starlit dinner all add up to a Laotian love affair.

terrific hotel staff welcoming on arrival, very quiet place with extensive grounds, nice pool, food beyond perfect. Locally sourced, organic all, many many choices including vegetarian, chefs available to come out and speak in detail about how it was prepared. Comfortable non bouncy beds, mosquito netting if needed Inexpensive laundry just an not say enough about how the staff treats the guests

This is an experience hotel, it’s not to be put in the same category as other hotels in Luang Prabang. Our whole group felt spoilt on our 5 day trip. If we had an expectation it beat it every time. It just kept getting better and better with every day and every experience, and the staff made this very personal, addressing us every step of the way to make sure we were fully accommodated and taken care of. Win, Min and No were always a step ahead, incredible service. You cannot skip out on the sunset cruise, which will set you back in time and is such a highlight of the trip. The hotel itself is stunning, only 30 something rooms and is a hidden paradise. Beyond impressed.

We came with a group of 5 and this hotel catered to us like a special group of people. We had some of the finest experiences such as a boat cruise, breakfast by waterfall, and tours of the lands. Most of the hotel has amazing amenities and Min Khant especially was the bartender/barista that made the experience 10X better. His hospitality and abilities serving us was beyond anything I've seen from one individual as hotel staff. Win was an incredible guide. The staff in total was incredible and the standout individuals took the experience over the top. Thank you!

Belmond Luang Prabang is a luxury property located close to the city centre yet situated amidst verdant well maintained gardens on top of a hill. The staff are gracious, efficient and courteous. They go above and beyond to ensure that guests are looked after. The rooms are tastefully done and amenity rich with commitment to sustainability. The sunset from the Mountain View rooms is simply magical! Food options are plenty and include local Laotian options as well - we thoroughly enjoyed the wines, the duck preparation and breakfast. The tours to local attractions are thoughtfully and exclusively planned. The welcome ceremony was also a highlight. Overall, an immersive luxury experience into the culture, heritage and natural beauty of Laos! Want to thank all the wonderful staff (Mr win, phonvilai, xeng seng Chantee, larissa & her team of chefs, restaurant & bar staff, students a staff and the GM Mr Salim - for their hospitality!

When staying at the La Résidence Phou Vao, you will appreciate how the wonderful staff make you feel special. They are all genuinely nice and happy that you are at there hotel. The hotels attention to detail goes beyond expectations! We stayed in a mountain view room, which was the beautifully decorated. The grounds are welcoming and make you feel as if you are far removed from the hustle and bustle of the town. We will definitely stay here when we return to Luang Prabang.
