We stayed for 3 nights in this resort and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is great, overlooking the city. The room was cleaned well everyday, the restaurant's food was great, both Laos and Western. Most of all enjoyed the wonderful friendliness from the Laos staff. We were able to enjoy touring the city everyday. We hope to come back again soon!

This is our 1st trip to Laos and we chose to stay at this hotel as it is located on a hill and overlooking the valley below. We were pleasantly taken in by the panaromic view of the city below and it was really awesome during the morning and at Sunset. Our Superior Room was clean, spacious and well appointed with a comfortable Kingsize bed and good size bathtub.
Staff are very friendly and ready to lend a helping hand. The food quality is good and Mr John Morris the General Manager was helpful to ensure our stay was comfortable. The swimming pool is lovely and the Pool Terrace & Bar is a great place to relax over a nice dinner.The Hotel shuttle service to town gives a nice touch to their guest service experience. We had massage at the hotel's Champa Hom Spa. it was a pleasant experience with the trained and friendly Masseuse. We will return again to stayon
our next visit to Laos.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Just had four nights in this beautiful property and can honestly say it was perfect. I didnt mind that it was a bit removed from the centre as there was nothing better than grabbing a bicycle and cruising aroung this gorgeous town. Service was impeccable and the food in the restaurant was delicious. My pioneer suite was enormous and the bed was very hard to get out of . Love that they have a pillow menu! The concierge, Santi, was most helpful in organising my day trips and nothing was a problem. Beautiful grounds, pool and architecture. Loved the whole thing.

What a nice little place. Away from the craziness/main strip and great view of the city. Rooms are very nice. We were visiting during December – it was very cold. We arranged for a heater in our room but still was very cold still. But, supposed to have been the coldest in decades (which we believe coming from Chicago) Had some problems with the water in the bathroom. Sometimes there was no water, sometimes it was cold, no pressure and other times it was perfect and high pressure. Had a mind of its own, so heads up. Food at hotel was ok. Service was great, staff was very friendly. Shuttle to and from town, so very convenient. Nice pool for warm months. Visiting on our honeymoon in Thailand for 21 days - we stayed in Luang Prabang for 4 days – but thought 3 days would have been PLENTY!!!! Either way, had a great time.

We stayed at the Luang Prabang View Hotel in November 2013 and we absolutely loved it. The hotel is very clean, quiet and the location is just perfect, giving you a lovely view over the valley. The staff... I could not praise more! Just amazing, and so extremely nice and helpful!
The hotel has a free shuttle to the city centre and you can book it also outside of the normal schedule and it still will be free. Thank you for a great stay!

Room Tip: Rooms are great. We went for the standard room and it was great!

I recently stayed 3 nights at this resort in a beautifully decorated room with a view. The rooms are two to a building. It came with its own private patio. The bathroom is huge with dual sinks, a very large free standing tub, a separate shower and separate toilet. There was a good assortment of toiletries and plenty of towels. The resort is built on a hill with views from all sides. The very large pool area at the top was outstanding with 360 degree views. Some of the rooms also have their own private infiniti pools. There is a beautiful spa on the grounds as well as a bar and restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as well as the charming town of Luang Prabang. You do need to be able to walk well because of the way the resort is built on a hill and there are many stairs up and down. However there is a service road which does have some shuttle service to the rooms which I believe you would only need to call, but even to the restaurant there are stairs. The staff could not be nicer. The only reason I do not give this 5 stars is because you come here to spend time in the town which is not convenient. The hotel has a shuttle to town by appointment, but walking to and from is not an option. We did take the shuttle into town and returned by Tuk Tuk but the small ones drop you off on the main road at the bottom of the hill because they can tip over if they try to climb the hill to the hotel entrance. We walked up which was ok for us, but not everyone. Ideally being situated closer to downtown would be best. However, I still highly recommend it as a luxury experience.

We booked this hotel because our friend spent great time 2 years ago in this hotel as it was member of the Shinta Mani group. This times are past as it was renamed to Luang Prabang View Resort. Our choice of standard room for $120 was a mistake. The standard rooms are located in a dependance in front of the hotel. The rooms were clean, modestly equipped without safe, no shower but with a bathtub, no information about the hotel facilities. But that all would be acceptable because of the nice location on the hill overlooking the town and the nice swimming pool. Then came the sleepless night, the road is running directly under the windows of the dependance and in front of the building was a construction site. The work started at 5 am and the noice from the street was unbearable, you could mean all tuktuks and lorries are driving through your room. In the morning we contacted the reception and were offered an upgrade to the superiour rooms. Because of that Iam writing 2 reviews for this hotel. The standard are NO value for your money, it s a ripoff, the fair rate would be definitely about $ 30. If you want to spend over $ 100 you find a wide range of quite better options in Luang Prabang

Room Tip: avoid standard rooms

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The charming hideaway of Luang Prabang is one of Indochina’s gems and the showpiece of Laos. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995, the well preserved city is more of a sleepy backwater than a modern metropolis. Wedged into the confluence of the mighty Mekong and lesser Khan river, Luang Prabang's peaceful location sets the pace for the unhurried way of life in the second largest city in Laos. Its grid-like road network makes it virtually impossible to get lost, and the entire town can be covered on foot in a day. ... more   less
