“Fabulous Hotel”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

This hotel is really lovely, the staff are attentive and friendly and because it is not too big it has a personal feel to it. I loved the swimming pool with a pool bar alongside. Also the food in the restaurant was reasonably priced and delicious. The hotel is slightly out of town but the hotel offers free bicycles and also a free Tut Tut or van transfer into Luang Prabang. I would definitely stay here again.

we recently stayed here and were very happy. the rooms are very nice, clean and spacious and have a great view. the staff was helpful and their english was ok too. the free shuttle service from and to town is great and there was always someone available to bring or pick us up which helped a lot since the hotel is not direcly in the centre but a few minutes outside.

we would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here for four days on our honeymoon. We could not have been better looked after. The manager is fantastic and as a result the place is run at a very high standard. The views are breathtaking and although you are a bit out of town it has possibly the best aspect as you are facing the mountain. We moved to a five star hotel in the area as we had already booked it and it came nowhere near to meeting the standard of kiridara.

Fantastic mountain view. Very attentive staff throughout hotel even manager Francis came to greet us almost daily. Great that chef was able to accommodate special dietary requirements & the food was yummy. Twice daily house cleaning was a treat. Despite hotel being a bit away from town the hotel provided free shuttle into town even at night & free bikes to ride into town which was only about 10mins away. The clean pool had amazing view of mountain.

Everything was absolutely outstanding! From the time we arrived and were met by the staff at Kiridara we were treated like VIP.
The service was excellent, the staff were delightful and helpful. The manager Francis was always checking up, make sure that his guests had a great experience.
The food at the hotel was excellent, the chef was always coming to chat and to tell you about what he was making.
It is a real boutique resort and an authentic experience stay in Luang Prabang, Laos.

I recently stayed 2 nights in the Kiridara. Great location, excellent rooms, good breakfast. also a very nice pool to unwind at the end of a hot day. Hotel provides transportation into town. Good value too.

What a great hotel. Incredible service and very, very comfortable. Tiny issue was that it was a bit far from the Main Street but their convenient shuttle makes it all better (location isn't ideal, but it is nice to be a bit away from the noise). It's also a nice and quiet hotel, a bit more of the "can afford to travel" crowd versus the "$3 for a mattress of the floor" crowd (forgive me for being a snob but I am a luxury backpacker.)

Property on the side of the hill makes for some great views from the pool.

Rooms are very comfortable and big with lots of English TV for those sleepless nights.

Staff has been amazing. Spa was a little slow so they came to the pool and gave complimentary 5 minute massages.

The hotel manager, Francis, came and chatted for a while to make sure everything is okay and asked if there was anything more they could do (he was concerned my friend was sick and offered to send food to the room). Also gave some helpful "local" tips. Very interesting guy with interesting perspective.

And the breakfast is quite spectacular. Make sure you give yourself time to enjoy some eggs, a cup of coffee and the view.
