Last month, my girlfriend, brother and I stayed at Le Bel Air for 4 nights. Our experience at this resort went above and beyond our expectations that it compelled me to write this review. Believe the hype from other reviewers, this is the real deal! The highlight was the incredibly friendly and helpful staff. The manager, Jean Paul Sara, was very knowledgeable about Luang Prabang and even helped us plan all our activities to get the authentic Lao experience. He did everything within his power to ensure that we had a safe, comfortable, adventurous, and fun time.
-shuttle service to and from the bus station/airport
-hourly shuttle service to downtown and one time pick up service back to the hotel at 9pm
-free rental bicycles
-delicious breakfast buffet
-beautiful, clean rooms
-great view of the river
-staff that speaks English, Thai, and Lao
-friendly and very attentive staff
The only "drawback" would be that its location is about a 15 minute walk/5 minute bike ride from downtown. However, this is easily remedied by free bicycle rentals and the hourly shuttle service.
I highly recommend Le Bel Air because the staff alone makes it worth the stay. Next time I'm in Luang Prabang, you'll find me here!
