It's all been said below but such a wonderful place deserves to be praised over and over again! Location is stunning, and in my opinion the best in town with views of both rivers and a lovely breakfast patio overlooking this, what a way to begin the morning. Rooms are comfortable and have everything you need. Was a little dubious about the Swedish remote control beds (thought it was a bit of an old person thing) but my goodness they are great for reading and lounging about, very comfy!
Yes it isn't cheap, but then neither is anywhere else in Luang Prabang of any sort of standard, and at this hotel there are lots of included bonuses such as free airport transfers, complimentary soft drinks in the room minibar, afternoon tea, and free one way trips into town in the golf cart (it's only 10 minutes walk but sometimes it's nice to be lazy!).
Yet what is really outstanding here is Urban, the owner, and his staff. They make you feel like family guests, and really make an effort to have a chat and get to know you. Lovely touch is Urban often has 6.30 complimentary wine over at the eating area by the river for all his guests, really nice to talk and have the opportunity to meet other guests if you wish.
Being slightly out of the town centre means it's quieter too.
If I ever return to LP I'll be staying here and not even bothering to check out anywhere else (we tried the 3 Nagas too on this trip, see separate review). I think it epitomises what LP is all about.
