The La Residence Phou Vao is a gorgeous property. It was the former royal residence and does not have a hotel feel. It is a very special resort. Highly recommend La Residence if you find yourself in Luang Prabang.

We just returned from a three night stay here and everything, every single detail, was perfection. The hotel is in prime location - situated just outside the town center but with a short, complimentary 5-minute ride to town available from the hotel upon request. The view from the restaurant, pool, and rooms are stunning. Every meal we had at the hotel we found ourselves saying it was the best thing we had eaten on our entire trip. The breakfast was the most gourmet experience - the service from the entire staff is unlike anything we've encountered at any hotel before. Saw, Philip, Meng - the amount of care and attention in each meal is remarkable. The presentation is surpassed only by the taste and quality of ingredients. Of all the things that make Phou Vao special I must say that the staff and service are what sets it apart. They genuinely make you feel like family. From morning bike rides with Chongtree, daily interactions with Bay and Andrei the manager, and the alms giving experience with Vilai - spending time with the staff, hearing about their culture and background, was truly one of our favorite parts. For us, we'll measure every special hotel we stay at going forward versus Phou Vao. There was life before this stay, and life after, and I'm a little worried they've messed us up for anywhere we stay down the road. We will never forget this stay - the simplicity, serenity, and beauty of the hotel, coupled with the wonderful people that make it so special, are something we will look back on with the fondest of memories for a long, long time.

A relaxing stay at La Residence, on its own hill in Luang Prabang, with beautiful views of Phou Si hill and the green mountains in the background. Wonderful room with a view, warm and friendly welcome by Andrei, excellent service throughout our stay and expert massage at the Spa.

Everyone of the hotel staff were truly exceptional. Varm, friendly, professional, fun, extremely attentive. The view is amazing. It is nice to be a bit away from the center but still close enough to walk or take the bike or the shuttle.

Our first time staying at a Belmond and it lived up to its reputation. Gorgeous, elegant property with the perfect short distance to town. Immaculately clean. Two pools. The lush grounds, not a leaf out of place. The staff were relaxed and helpful at every turn. The kitchen was a foodies paradise. The property manager, Andrei was gracious and informative. We were well taken care of. Highly recommend.

Beautiful hotel, food fabulous but staff far too over attentive to the point that it was awkward - hovering and chatting when we were talking to each other or Eating Following me to the bathroom to open the door Generally OTT on the Service which took the edge of it and made it awkward Food in the restaurant was fantastic- shout out to the female chef (can’t remember her name)

One of the best hotels we have ever been to.DThereThe And we have been to many hotels, around the globe, but also many in Southeast Asia and also in Laos. The staff are excellent, friendly and knowledgeable. The location is unique, the facilities of the highest standard. The welcoming ceremony deserves special mention, we have not experienced anything like it even in the South Pacific. There is not a single thing to criticise.
