            Great hotel with lovely staff”

            We had a mountain view upper floor room which was lovely with views of the mountains and Phu Si ( whenever the smog cleared- Stayed in the low season when they slash and burn in the hills unfortunately). The staff could not do enough for you. Breakfast was nice.We ate in the hotel a couple of times and the food was good and reasonably priced for a 5 star hotel. It was slightly outside of town but a little oasis and they have a shuttle service in the evenings and if they are not on airport runs we used it ad hoc in the day when needed. Only down side are the mosquitoes but they spray the room every evening and provided us with a spray which we used on the odd pesky critters and there is a mosquito net over the bed. I didn’t get bitten whilst staying there but was careful. We also thought the excursions that they provided were over priced so did not use their services for this.

            This hotel is one of the surprises we had in Luang Prabang. The whole area is of good old charm, well designed landscape and fantastic view from windows / balcony. Services are very good and comfortable. Management and staff are very friendly and helpful. With almost personal shuttle service, its distance (20-30min walk) from town center didn't become an issue.

            Nice hotel”

            We had stayed in hotel for 3 nights. It is a low season so there were not many guests to stay. Therefore it was very quiet instead and we never met anyone else when we were using the pool. There were welcome drinks, welcome fruits, also a gift soap from hotel. Complimentary sunset cruise was very good, too. We had also experienced hotel spa as the spa got some reward. I think the girl who did my spa is trainee as she is not that good. Not worth the money. Good thing is the product used in spa smell really good.

            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.

            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.

            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.
