We stayed two nights at this breathtaking hotel that was just an incredible oasis. The hotel staff was outstanding from the beginning to the end. We were welcomed with a specialty pomegranate drink and led to our hotel rooms which were absolutely spectacular. The bed and bathroom were sprinkled with beautiful flowers and had an incredible view overlooking a beautiful...

Everything about this hotel is perfect! I have travelled extensively in Asia and Europe staying at all caliber of hotels and Phou Vao ranks amongst the best that I've ever had the opportunity to experience. The welcome upon arrival, traditional art work and furnishings, attention to detail in all respects, service, infinity pool and quality of the food served in...

The Phou Vao was blissful. One could sit for hours enjoying a large breakfast on the infinity pool over looking the hill to the Phou Si stupa in Luang Prabang center. The location/buildings and caring staff make the experience the peaceful luxury that one hears about in Asia. The rooms are luxuriously equipped with everything one may need during ones...

This is one of my favourite hotels. It's location slightly out of town makes for amazing views, but yet the hotel has regular tuck-tuck to town, and taxi's very easy, so no disadvantage. Service discrete and attentive. Highly recommended. Our room was large and very comfortable, bathroom perhaps a little old fashioned. Pool complimented the location, dark blue in colour...

Great small boutique hotel. Incredible service, food and room. A bit distant from down town Luang Prabang, but very easy to get transport with hotel shuttle or tuk tuk. I wish I had stayed more time in there and enjoyed the full potential of the hotel. That's my tip to you. Plan your visit to Luang Prabang in a way...

I had a beautiful time with my daughter at Belmond, the architecture, location, the view and the whole trees surrounding the residence is heavenly! The service is amazing and all staff are amicable, buffet breakfast with the display outside is unforgettable ❤️ we also tried the spa and it is one of the best treatments I have done!

Lovely small hotel with serene views over the hills and Mount Phousi. Loved the common areas of the hotel - restaurant, pool area and bar - understated oriental elegance. Lovely helpful staff, delicious food - breakfast by the pool was very special, as was dinner outdoors. We enjoyed the location - we rode the bikes around so it was nice...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Positioned atop a hill, gazing across the sacred mountains, Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao is an unforgettable place to stay. Its calm, tranquil ambiance echoes that of sleepy World Heritage town of Luang Prabang - former royal capital of Laos - spread out below. Designed in a traditional style, this intimate hotel is gemmed with teak, silk and fresh cotton accents. The hotel's Phou Savanh restaurant is famed for its wonderful French-influenced local cuisine while Doc Champa bar offers guests a range of Laotian and classic cocktails. The award-winning Mekong Spa blends ancient techniques with modern understanding to ensure complete indulgence and well-being and is the first luxury spa in Luang Prabang, Laos. Furthermore the hotel offers a gym, boutique, tours & excursion desk, meeting room and organic garden with cooking class area. The hotel's 34 suites are elegantly furnished with emphasis on local styles and materials. The combination of parquet and traditional Lao textiles creates an immediate sense of peace and space in all suites. Large windows provide plenty of natural light and open onto the exotic gardens. A conveniently arranged terrace offers privacy, comfort and tranquility. ... more   less
