This was our second Aman property visit and it definitely continues to be our favorite and most indulgent hotel chain. We visited Luang Prabang in the low season and it was nice to not be surrounded by a lot of tourists. Our transfer from the airport to the hotel was seamless, complete with water and cold towels. As we stepped out of the van, the manager and 2 other staff members greeted us by name and welcomed us to the hotel. We got upgraded to a pool suite (#7) and it was larger than our old apartment in NYC. Huge bedroom, large sitting room, separate vanities with sinks in the bathroom and a large pool and patio area in the back. The location of the hotel is super convenient for walking to town. As always, the service was impeccable, and the day trips they offered were pretty unique. We went to the waterfall and bear sanctuary where we were allowed in the bear cages to hide their food. It was pretty incredible. We also took a river boat tour to the caves. The Aman has their own boat which was squeaky clean and had a place to eat and lay down. They served us food and drinks as we cruised down the river. Even the guide remembered that we liked sparkling water from dinner the night before and brought it on the boat for us. We ate both breakfast and dinner there which were all great, especially the Laotian food. They also had really good recommendations for places to eat in town and shops to visit. We did not visit the spa, but it looked very peaceful. Although its definitely pricey, especially for LP, I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
