Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: La Pistoche Swimming Pools and Bars is the only private and public swimming pools in Luang Prabang. It is a complex of 4 swimming pools, 2 small one with water toys for kids and 2 bigger one for everybody. The 2 bigger swimming pools have 2 bars, one jaccuzzi and a small slide. If you are looking for a refreshing break from the heat, after sightseeing or an exhausting bicycle tour, jump into our pools and enjoy delicious cocktails. Away from the tourist traffic, you can find us nestled within a typical Lao Neighborhood in Ban Phong Pheng Village. We offer Happy Hours on Cocktails from noon to 7 pm. It cost 30,000 kips per persons (adults and kids) for entrance fee and you have to leave a deposit of 50,000 kips that will be refunded to you if you dont drink or eat anything, or will be substracted from your bill. Please be aware that in hot season, we do have a lots of locals, specially on Saturday and Sunday. Which means a lots of kids! We love the fact that foreigners and locals laotians can mix together. However, if you are looking for a very quiet place, we don t suggest our place. In hot season, there are some hotels that let visitors go. Also, be aware that week ends are very very busy. We suggest that you come early, we open at 10 am, if you wish to have some quiet time. Just a small note, we also have a lot of backpackers, some families have made some complains about this. Up to now, the backpackers that comes to the pool have been very kids friendly. My 7 years old daughter always end up making new friends that throw her up in the air. We also have a lots of Lao families. We do have free wi-fi, but we are not an internet cafe, so it is possible that our internet doesn t work... We priorize people having fun together and chatting together, than playing with their internet!!! Hope you enjoy!

The pool is great for those super-hot April days. The movie nights are fun, too. Good food.

“Great Pool - full of locals”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

We enjoyed the pool on a very hot day during the New Year's celebrations. Many children in the pool - all eager to play with you.
We had a fun day and enjoyed a cold beer at the restaurant.-
Don't expect a clear water pool or comfortable chairs. It's a nice place to be but it's not comparable to European standards.

How to get there: Tuktuk from the city centre is the easiest way.

“Nice idea, poor execution”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

It's a nice idea - a poolside restaurant for relaxation, cooling down and eating at a leisurely pace. The pool itself is quite big, but will not win any style prizes - the lining is big bathroom tiles. The place wasn't very clean and the food was not fresh.
