Opulent colonial style hotel, exceeds expectations
Architectural design, room size, exudes luxury
This hotel has the feel of a french colonial boutique style, although it is new construction. We stayed in the explorator suite in the main building above reception. The oval hole in the floor/ceiling is am excellent feature and shows the extent of detail into design of this hotel. The suite room was huge, over 800 sq ft with baclonys, and the beds are very soft and comfortable. Everything was amazing at this place, the outdoor swimming pool is clean and well kept, the breakfast a la carte was exceptional, the rooms are clean and breezy with a powerful AC. It is about 2 kilometers from town but they provide bicycles, good for your heart.

Charming as French Quarter.
Awesome staffs, beautiful hotel, great food (try the STEAK!)
This hotel is our number one on the list of best experiences that we had. The staffs are the most wonderful, the room are charming, bed are super comfortable, beautiful view of the mountain from a large patio, the breakfast was great and was served with fruits, and extra items. Dinner was delicious (best Steak ever!) and best Creme Brûlée! Requested for pick up from the airport and was met by two staffs with our name on the sign. During the trip to the hotel, we were giving cold towel and cold drinks (for the heat). The swimming pool is breathtaking. The extra bed that we requested was already place in the room and was super comfortable as well. This place is truly a 5 stars hotel and more! We will definitely return again.

Absolutely wonderful guesthouse
The staff helpfulness, the luxurious guest room and the delicious food.
I can't speak highly enough of the staff and the comfort of the Exploratory suite above the dining room. We stayed for 5 nights and it proved a wonderful retreat from the August humidity and busy streets. The pool is a delightful area and the dining room offers a fine variety. I recommend the fresh spring rolls, though. Staff are genuinely smiley and gracious, as is the wonderful Lao way. It's not in the best Luang Prabang area, but having already stayed in the old town, we welcomed the garden and pool space. Transfers into the old area are offered at any time and the tuk tuks from town are very inexpensive. It's also quite possible to walk from the guesthouse to the Museum and old town, as I did on several occasions. This would be my hotel of choice should I find myself back in lovely Luang Prabang.

Old World Luxury
Huge luxurious suites, delicious food, wonderful staff
Our family was cared for from arrival to departure. The staff is attentive to every detail and did whatever they could to ensure our comfort and luxury. The huge rooms gave our family a lot of room to do our "thing" without getting into each other's way. The pool was large and beautiful and set in a lovely natural garden. The amenities were perfect and we never felt that we needed something that we could not get. The easy transport into town made the somewhat removed location easy to manage. We used the hotel bicycles, the great Tuk-tuk, or the hotel van to get in and out of town. They also kept our things while we went on a 3-day trek and everything was in place upon our return. We would love to return here.

Nice 5 star hotel, attentive staff, some gripes
Staff, gardens, restaurant
Website does not mention bathroom. At this price, we assumed there would be a bath, but there was only a rather imperfect shower. $8 for a bottle of sparkling water is a rip-off, as was $8 per person for a short ride to the airport. The staff and cleanliness were excellent.
