Belmond La Residence Phou Vao is set on a hillside overlooking Luang Prabang and is surrounded by lush gardens. For many years, 'La Res' stood unchallenged as this enigmatic city's premier deluxe hotel. For many, even now, despite some heavy weight challengers, the resort is still the pick of the bunch when staying in Luang Prabang.
Set in well maintained grounds, this luxurious property is home to one of Luang Prabang’s finest restaurants and a gorgeous, custom-designed spa - the first of its kind in the region to offer seriously indulgent treatments in five-star surrounds.
Each spacious suite has incredible views from a private balcony across the surrounding forest canopy, with distant mountains providing a stunning backdrop. Interiors are furnished simply and elegantly, with an emphasis on local styles and materials.
