Amazing views and perfect service
Service and views
This hotel is amazing! We had a Garden View Junior Suite and the view over the town / mountains – including the Mount Phousi temple – was wonderful. The room was massive with a lovely bath and private balcony, the bed was decorated with flowers on arrival and the nightly turn-down with Macaroons was a nice touch. We ate at the restaurant every night and the food and buffet breakfast were excellent. Of course the hotel is a bit out of town, but really there is no reason to leave the hotel (and the hotel shuttle bus is free and convenient). The spa lived up to its reputation – exceptional menu and the massages were great. Oh, and the infinity pool is lovely!

Beautiful Hotel with impeccable Service
The dinner resturant is the best in Luang Prabang with service to match
From the minute we were picked up at the airport by one of the staff from the La Residence Phou Vao Hotel we knew we were going to enjoy our holiday. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and has a fantastic view of the mountains across the Mekong River. There are many fine hotels in SE Asia but this one situated in the wonderful little town of Luang Prabang is not to be missed. Hopefully the addition of a new runway at the airport will not change things too much. The hotel offers a sunset cruise which is not to be missed. The Captain motored our private teak craft up the river, turned off the motor and allowed us to drift back along the river in time to catch the sunset between two mountains. Just a sample of the detail of the service the staff has been educated to provide. Visit now before anything changes.

Amazing hotel, amazing service
staff kindness
We simply loved the week we spent in this unique hotel. Because we felt at home. Because the staff was so nice with us, and especially with our 9 months old daughter. It's really worth the price.

Heaven on the hill
geat personalised service
La Phou as the hotel is lovingly called, is a very special place. An air of calm is apparent and it was a great place to start our overdue holiday. The room was gorgeous with no detail missing. Flowers, fruit trays with the makings of coffee and tea right next to loungers on the veranda. The breakfast beautifully presented and as fresh as..... The general manager John knows all the guests and is always present. As to the Spa, now theres a special place for a weary body. I had one of the best massages ever. Especially designed for bone and muscle pains. Wish I had more time to have another.

Perfection in a resort, ideal for the off season
Peace and quiet, spa, food, service
this mountain-top resort gets everything right- from flower petals on the bed and toilet-paper dispenser (!) to the lovely asian, continental, magreb cuisine. the staff are lovely and the location is perfect - enjoy the spa, the quiet and the views in isolation if you like, or dip into the sight-seeing of luang prabang just minutes away if that's what you fancy. i already gave this hotel a glowing review in june; the proof of my sincerity is that i returned only six weeks later and stayed much longer.
