We were greeted at the airport by our guest relations host, Tui, who soon became our wonderful guide and help to see the most of this city as well as getting the most out of every day.
Mekong Estate is my pick as the most luxurious private and user friendly accommodation available in Luang Prabang. We stayed in the Bambou 3 then 4 House and loved both spaces so much it was very hard to justify moving on. In fact we doubled our time in LP in part because of here.
This place was very quiet and private at the time of year we visited, more suited to couples and older children as there is little fencing and extensive grounds with access to the water. The Estate offers a wide variety of accommodation styles suitable for friends, families and extended family gatherings.
The service we received from Tui and Vanh as well as the breakfast staff was practical perceptive and most welcome.The rooms were spotlessly cleaned every day by a lovely lady. Our location on the Mekong allowed us to enjoy beautiful sunsets over the river.
Tui checked in with us every morning to confirm our plans and ensure our daily needs were covered. I would highly recommend this estate to anyone seeking to unwind in delightful surroundings.
You pass through the midst of a village to leave the estate and a local guy at the shops on the main road put us onto the Boules and Karaoke place for food served till 9.30pm. Just a few minutes walk, on the corner of the estate road and main road. We were warmly welcomed, watched the boules for a while then ate an excellent cheap meal at the restaurant behind the big Karaoke building.
Overall Mekong Estate offered us the best accommodation and service during our month long stay in Thailand and Laos. We both look forward to our return and plan on taking family and friends whenever we can
