Amantaka - taken from the Sanskrit word aman, meaning "peace" and the Tipitaka word taka, meaning "the teaching of the Buddha" - is one of the most enchanting places you will ever encounter. Located in Luang Prabang, Laos, a region that enjoys a warm and tropical climate, Amantaka shelters its guests in clusters of stylish suites - including a collection of pool suites. Authentic Laos fare with French influences, along with other international cuisine, is presented in the stunning dining room to suit your palate's pleasure.
Pampering is a specialty at Amantaka and the resort's spa is its own sanctuary with a quartet of treatment rooms and a menu that incorporates soothing Southeast Asian techniques. If you seek further physical experiences, pay a visit to the gymnasium, tennis center, yoga studio or refreshing swimming pool. Amantaka also offers an art gallery on the premises, a tranquil library in which to get cozy, and a lounge where you can enjoy a sunset aperitif. If you have never been to Southeast Asia, you are in for a cultural awakening. Brilliant waterfalls, tribal villages, and jungle tours are just some of the alluring attributes Laos has to offer. More urban-centric day trips can also be arranged to allow you to shop, enroll in a culinary class or scour the nearby museums for lost treasures. Amantaka provides easy access to boutiques, bakeries and restaurants along the main street and the banks of the Mekong River, as well as Luang Prabang's fabled night market. Many historic sites, including picturesque temples and the former Royal Palace are also within easy reach. At Amantaka, your experience is an exploration, and your time is sure to be unforgettable.
