The place was beautiful, and the service from the staff was impeccable. If there is a bone to pick, it is that the location is a bit far from the city centre, but with a pool and an unblocked view of the Mekong, do I really need to get into town that often? (They offer bicycles for their guests to...

We chose the Mekong Estate after reading all the superb reviews of this place and I am glad we made the right decision! We came in April the shoulder season between the dry high season and the rainy low season so we could still get a good deal by booking directly with Mekong Estate. It was about $150USD a night...

The Mekong Estate is the perfect place to get a view of the sunset. They also have a mini infinity pool with the best in the hotel. It is by the far my most relaxing place to chill in, especially early in the morning. The balcony has a nice view too. The area is so relaxing that I always fall...

We arrived at the Red House after dark and woke to an amazing view of the Mekong. Extraordinary. The service provided by Mr Toey and staff were exemplary as were the breakfasts (best croissants ever!). The rooms were well designed and luxuriously fitted out. Apart from a boisterous local karaoke party on New Year's Eve, the estate was quiet and...

We arrived quite late and because it was so dark we couldn't see what sort of view we had from our front room and balcony. We couldn't believe it when we woke up to see the Mekong just beyond our windows. It's beautiful. The room was spacious and they were kind enough to set up an extra bed and cot...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mekong Estate lives up to its name with five stately Lao-colonial style villas, all with a stunning vista of the majestic Mekong River and mountains. Each of the property's 10 well-appointed rooms and suites has a river view, private terrace and kitchen, and is designed to be your home away from home. Founded in 2005 as the first residence service in Luang Prabang, guests get to discover a local atmosphere and home-style comfort, an experience unparalleled to staying at a hotel in town. The rooms boast ample space, light, character and charm. Spacious living extends to the outdoors with verandas, immaculate tropical gardens, a 25m long swimming pool and of course, the property's namesake river. Quite simply, we have the best view of the Mekong in Luang Prabang; watch the world drift by and let time stand still. ... more   less
