Loved this place. Sitting on the patio overlooking the Nam Khan river and the Laos jungle. Fell asleep to the sounds of the jungle. Clean rooms, lovely service, good food.

It was a wonderful relaxing time in the jungle resort. Beautiful rooms - perfect service - quiet and lot of outdoor activities possible.

Sitting on the terrace of the bungalow with the great view on the small river and the jungle - having a glass of wine - that was perfect !!!

This was the third place we stayed while we were in Luang Prabang. The first two were in town and of course Lao Spirit is about a 30 minute drive away.
Can you remember quiet? Think peaceful raised to the power of 10. Our pick up van to take us out to Lao Spirit showed up exactly on time. Thomas and is wife greeted us as we arrived. The entire staff was just great. But it's the cottages and environment that make the experience and they bordered on flawless.
Food was excellent and the staff at the restaurant were engaging and entertaining. I found that in short order I couldn't live without my morning baguette and Lao Salad at lunch. We arranged two activities through the hotel, an elephant ride and kayaking trip. Both were great. Unlike Thailand the elephants are well treated and at least during the dry season, a good part of the ride is straight down the center of the Mekong River, it was very cool. Also, if you're out and about around 7AM you can take a 10 minute walk towards the elephant sanctuary and either watch or participate in washing the elephants! The Kayak trip which makes a stop at the lower falls for a swim along the way was great as well.
If you are craving a change of cuisine you can take a 15-20 minute walk along the road that you came in on and stop over at the Zen Resort for lunch or dinner. The menu is different from Lao Spirit and the food is very good though slightly more expensive.
A great great 4 day stay. There is fast internet access at reception and wifi in some of the cottages.
Prepare to hear the sounds of silence (do you think Paul Simon stayed hear?)

This proved to be a highlight of my trip in Lao. The peacefulness and calm, rejuvenated and refreshed and I felt more relaxed after one night here than I have in years. Most definitley worth including in any Luang Prabang trip.

The Lao Spirit Resort is just that – they transplanted bungalows from Luang Prabang, built years ago from the last big teak trees, onto the bank of the Khan River, and raised them to provide a stunning panoramic view of the winding river and the mountains looming behind. This is perhaps the best place in Laos to enjoy the rain; with open air showers and wide terraces it exemplifies openness to its surroundings. A short hike through the quiet forest takes one back in time to a quaint town immersed in natural beauty and the human warmth of the local villagers. This experience should be part of any trip to the historic Luang Prabang area.

This is a fantastic place to relax and experience Lao culture and landscape. The villas are beautiful and authentic with touches of class, like floor-to-ceiling glass windows facing the river and the mountain beyond. The owners are very nice. Staying here, one can properly unwind even more easily that in town. I would recommend anyone visiting Luang Prabang stay here for at least a few nights. We intended a one night stay and ended up staying seven nights.

The Lao Spirit resort was by far the best place that we staying in whilst in Laos. The scenery, the rooms, the outstanding service and best of all the amazing outdoor shower!!!!
The owner went out of his way to accomodate us at late notice and we couldnt have felt more welcome. If you are looking for something special just outside of Luang Prabang this is it!!!
