Laos is one of Asia’s best-kept secrets, with an unspoiled environment, rich culture and incredibly relaxed people. In the ancient royal city of Luang Prabang, saffron-clad monks stroll through Buddhist temples; the streets are lined with French colonial architecture; and the scent of roasting coffee wafts through the air.

The layout of the main building was simple and beautiful, a classic French colonial style. We had a suite in the main build that looked over the whole property with a large balcony. Very spacious , 100 m2, large room with a great view…The pool was nicely designed and great for cooling off in the hot afternoons. We also loved that the hotel offered wonderful pastries, cakes and small snacks during the late afternoon during tea time.

Although the hotel isnt in the Old Town area, dont let this put you off. The hotel provides regular free shuttle to the centre of town and return pick up. Or you can use the bicycles provided, it's a 10 min ride and there are local shops and restaurants along the way.
