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.

The hotel service is of the highest quality, couldn't do enough for us. They made us feel more like family rather than guests. The rooms are very clean, the food was out of this world - complements to the chef!! Our 'Elms Giving to Monks' & the Sunset Cruise on the Mekong River which was part of our Luxury Escapes package was a real highlight. A must to visit is the Kuang Si Waterfalls, most outstanding. Don't waste your time visiting the Pak Ou Caves as the caves were full of beggars and pieces of small Buddha statues with a couple of small shrines and nothing more. To get there on the long boat up the Mekong river was the highlight of the day. Note - Hotel prices are all US$ But get some Kip dollars on arrival.

Stayed for 3 nights with my wife and 3 kids at the Belmond in Luang Prabang. The location is slightly out of town (a plus for me) atop a small hill giving lovely views from the breakfast porch and the pool. The hotel is tastefully done up with lots of local details. Breakfast was excellent with a great view to go a long with the very good food. Our son had high fever on the last night and the hotel was very helpful with finding us a good doctor and organising the shuttle service. Food and Beverage overseen by Michael who was ever present and accommodating with food (particularly for the kids). I highly recommend this hotel - this service is excellent and would love to visit again.

Good spacious room with view and large balcony, comfortable bed and excellent shower. Welcoming and friendly staff. Nice pool. Very good breakfast. The hotel is a little out of town but runs a flexible transfer to the night market and restaurants. If you want a touch of luxury and to be away from the hum-drum of the town, then this is the place for you.

We stayed here 2 nights. It is a beautiful hotel it is peaceful and calm a great place to chill. We had a suit so lots of room, the was a balcony over looking the garden were you could watch the world go by including some kid goats. Towel were replaced twice a day if needed, as was the shower gel shampoo etc. In the evening you bed was turned down and the mosquito net put in place. There was a good choice at breakfast with the usual omelette point to order. The staff were exceptional and could not do enough for you. There is a shuttle bus which will take and bring you back from town, they will also take you to your restaurant and pick you up. I would highly recommend this hotel.
