La Residence Phou Vao is located just outside Luang Prabang with a view of the mountains and the town below. The grounds of the hotel are very nice and the extensive breakfast served inside or outside is quite good. It it is cool in the morning so small wood wires are started in outdoor containers to keep the chill off. We used the spa which is very professional and efficient with a lovely setting in separate huts. The whole staff is well trained and very helpful. We arranged a one day tour on the Mekong which was a real treat with lunch served on the beach. Shuttles are available into the town since walking is doable but a hike.
