Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao in Luang Prabang, Laos
In the ancient capital of Laos is a resort of extraordinary brilliance—Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao is shrouded in leafy wonderment high atop the Hill of Kites in Luang Prabang. With views of colliding rivers, soaring mountains, and ancient temples, this luxury resort embraces its Asian history and French influences. The collection of rooms and suites are exquisitely appointed eschewing ornate embellishments and opting for cleaner and more calming motifs. Terrazo baths, rich organic cottons, spacious surroundings and plush textiles are just a few of the unexpected pleasures concealed behind closed doors. Large picture windows frame seemingly airbrushed views of the breathtaking landscape.
Dining at La Résidence is an explosion of exotic flavors that marry Laotian cuisine with traditional European tastes. Illuminated by a fleet of lanterns, Phou Savanh Restaurant's setting is as appetizing as the menu. French and Laotian cuisine complements one another for lunch and dinner. The Five Hundred Candle Dinner is an amazing culinary experience and one to surely ignite romance. A table for two is positioned on the resort's hilltop where 500 flickering candles set the stage for an elegant dinner and live music accompaniment. End the evening on a high note at the Doc Champa Bar, an open-air lounge that also serves a delightful afternoon tea. Home to the nation's first luxury spa, Mekong Spa is superb sanctuary featuring an array of treatments, steam room and a refreshing infinity-edge pool. Take a two-wheel trek and enjoy a scenic bike ride stopping only to enjoy a gourmet, chef-prepared picnic of regional specialties.

We spent ten nights at Residence Phou Vau. First off, we loved the location which combined proximity to downtown with a mountain resort feel. There is no place else like it in Luang Prabang. Views are spectacular at this Asian lilly pond/koi pond centered resort. Secondly we were treated incredibly well by the entire staff. The front desk provided an exceptional service experience. We are very grateful to Souk, Toui and Phoutai (spelling) for making our stay such a pleasure. The dining room staff's attentiveness equalled that of the front desk, with the waiters cutting up fresh mango and coconut every morning specifically for our family. The front desk also went out of their way to make sure we had rides into town and that when the van was unavailable we had a cost effective alternative. Souk negotiated a very reasonable tuktuk for us to the waterfalls, and Toui negotiated with a tour guide we'd heard about for an afternoon tour of Old Town. The housekeeping and turn down service were also incomparable. Turn-down at Phou Vau means you get a second cleaning, which we candidly needed by the end of the day. Every night the hotel staff leaves the guests a Laotian gift, whether Lao coffee or a scarf. The gym was small, but the equipment was new, and we used it almost every day. Our room had mahogany furniture and teak floors...really lovely. The only thing I would change is the lighting...I felt the place was dark at night when the blinds/curtains were down. We all LOVED it, and hope to have the opportunity to return one day.

Loved everything about this place...elegant, friendly, great views, top service and well located. The pool was just great for a quiet and refreshing dip. Breakfast was fantastic with attentive staff. The sticky rice/coconut/banana treats were so good! And the room was amazing with two balconies, large bathroom and amazing views. The spa was great with excellent treatments, the private boat was an excellent way to see the river sites, and I booked a private dinner for a special dinner which was lovely.

This is truly the most wonderful hotel i have ever stayed in and well worth the splurge. The staff is A plus in every way - from your arrival, to the spa to the restaurant to the drivers taking you into town and the boat ride on the Mekong. I could live here. The Manager has been here for 13 years and the resort has his stamp of making this a real home for guests. The city of Luang Prabang is a gem and there is no better place to return to after a long day of touring.
