Stayed here with family during my birthday, end of June. The room was beautiful, spacious & comfortable. Breakfast is amazing, a la carte, you will eat definitively too much. The free shuttle service is great as well & all hotel employees make you feel special.

We also visited the SPA, great experience and a really relaxing massage. We were only unlucky with the weather (3 days rain) but still enjoyed ourselves.

I specially like to thank Khun Golf for the excellent service, birthday cake & personal touch during our entire visit. Will definitely return during my next visit to Luang Prabang.

This is a great hotel with a beautiful view and new property (I think all rooms have a view of the pool and mountains). Considering most hotels in Luang Prabang dont have pools, the infinity pool at Kiridara is great. Staff is very friendly and helpful, everyone from the General Manager (Francis) to the waiter at the poolbar (who kept stretching happy hour for us and giving us free mixers).

There are some really nice touches to the hotel, small things that make the stay really pleasant. I.e. The welcome basket, daily baked goods placed in the room (cookies/cupcakes/muffins), to the flavoured water they serve you at the gym, etc.

Food is great, had one of the best burgers of my life there, and breakfast does not disappoint (try the rice porridge or poached eggs). Happy hours daily from 5-7 at 50% off quality cocktails and other drinks.

Didnt try the Spa.. but I hear its great.

There are two shortcomings however:
- The hotel is a bit far from the town centre, but they do compensate by making shuttles available to/from the hotel between 5am-10pm (just call them if you want to go anywhere or want to be picked up).
- The gym is a bit sad...

Situated on a perch of hill providing beautiful views of the hills and the surrounding areas of the town.A little ways from the town center but that little negative is negated with the free shuttle service that is provided and of course the overlook which the hotel position affords you.They also provide free bicycles that we took full advantage to explore the town and the surrounding area.

The hotel has only 24 rooms all well appointed with a great shower, fantastic mattress, pillows and linen...5 star quality. A top notch spa is also there which I toured when we arrived but did not use other than one afternoon both my wife and I took the five minute complimentary massage at the pool deck.

The staff is friendly, efficient and provides impeccable service and it begins when you arrive as they provide a welcome cold refreshment at check in. Our room was provided with water bottles each day,fruit and at night a pastry along with turning down our bed, the slippers at the foot of the bed and the housecoat at the end of the bed....each night I looked forward to the pastry they would leave for us.

The complimentary breakfast is served at the pool deck or in the air con restaurant. It's ordered from a menu with several selection of local, western and french items....make sure you order the pastry basket, warm yummy pastry and breads....the service is prompt and efficient.

Francis, the manager made a point to talk to us and other guests to ensure our stay met our expectation and to provide feedback.

The boutique hotel is fully equipped and is a complete five star hotel thus one gets great value for their stay.

Make sure you get a deluxe room as these are higher along the hillside affording you unobstructed views of the surrounding hills.

We, a family of five, stayed at Kiridara in July for three nights. In all my years of travel, I can honestly say Kiridara would rank as a near perfect hotel. The hotel has everything: a stunning view, a friendly staff, complimentary shuttle van, and free gourmet breakfast. We also enjoyed the nightly walk back from downtown Luang Prabang along the Nam Khan River. The walk was a leisurely 15 minutes.

Luang Prabang is an amazing city and had been on my dream list to visit for years. Staying at Kiridara helped making the dream come true. I will remember the trip for the rest of my life.

A really great hotel. It's just small enough that you get to know the friendly staff on a personal level, but big enough to provide all the amenities you would expect from a larger chain. The management and staff were amazing, the rooms modern and well appointed, and the restaurant had a great menu. If "getting away from the backpacker scene" is your desire, this is the place for you. The only downside is it is about a 15 minute walk to the heart of the historical area. However, the hotel provides a shuttle whenever you need.

This hotel has a great out look. Perched at the base of a mountain i has great views out over Luang Prabang as its about a 2 minute ride out of town. A free ride is available into town and they give you a number to call to collect you, although a tuk tuk only cost 30,000 kip. Free bike hire is available too. The pool area is beautiful and the staff at the bar were great. The drinks were quite reasonably priced for a hotel ($5 for a cocktail) and the pool side food was great.
The room was very spacious and clean. Had a little balcony over looking the town and pool which was nice. Was a bit disapointed there was no bath tub and the shower had really poor water pressure, they even changed the shower head for us but it made no difference. If the bathroom facilities were better the room would of been perfect.
The staff at reception at times were a bit un-helpful at times ( i think a bit more training in custoer service wouldnt go astray ) but this wasnt all the staff.
It is a pretty spectacular looking hotel, and yes I would absolutley book here again if we get the chance to return to Luang Prabang. It is very reasonably priced, I think it just needs a bit fine tuning.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have a little courtyard of them

Our stay was amazing thanks to the wonderful work of the staff, the manager and the beautiful location. Seriously, we've been travelling to Southeast Asia alot in the last five years and this is surely the most amazing staff we've encountered. They are well trained and also have a way to personnalize their service. Their English is also very good and they do like to practice.

We had also massages at the Spa which were fantastic. They really care about your experience. We filled out the medical information and my boyfriend wrote that he had food allergies. Since that time all the hotel knew about it and they took it very seriously.

We ate at the restaurant pretty much all the time. The staff remembered our favorite drinks and made sure we had it each time, they even would go to the market to get it. The food was very tastefull and well executed. As I mentionned before, my boyfriend's allergies were taken seriously especially when we had the Lao Set menu (which was included in our package).

As for the room, it was big, comfortable and well appointed with a nice balcony. The pool is very clean and you have great sunloungers to rest. You also have free bicycle and free shuttle anytime you want into town.

We really enjoyed our time here and were quite sad to leave. The staff made our stay unforgettable.

Keep up the good work !
