One of the most delightful hotels in which we have ever stayed! Located in old town Luang Prabang overlooking the Mekong river and next to the Wat Xienthong, this perfect hotel meets the expectations of the most discerning traveller. Disappointingly, we were only in Luang Prabang for two nights but we'll certainly return and will definitely stay in this hotel....

After staying in an "o.k." guesthouse, my cousin and I treated ourselves to two nights of luxury! Each room was nicely decorated with flower peddles everywhere. The Jacuzzi was fabulous and they had hot water! It was a very peaceful and relaxing stay, located right near the Mekong River.

We stayed there for our honeymoon, looking for relaxing following a long Journey in Asia. Luang prabang is a wonderfully city that looks like a museum. Everything is harmonious, peaceful, lovely designed, without speaking about the kindness of Lao people, The hotel itself is located in front of Wat Xiengthong, which is probably the nicest temple in town, and almost...

After the big, glitzy hotels, this was a relaxing delight. The grounds and location are stunning. The rooms have everything, without being glitzy. The manager was superb, as was all the helpful staff. Breakfast is a treat, right by the Mekong River. And, they will fix you anything you'd like.
