"This wonderful well-managed hotel that consists of 32 bedrooms is located in a lovely garden with an infinity pool and a spa in the middle of the grounds. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed both the relaxation and ambiance-not forgetting the superb cuisine both at breakfast and dinner on the outside terrace. In conclusion the best hotel on our tour of Indochina."

"We stayed at the Belmond in Luang Prabang as part of a five country vacation. The service is outstanding. The pool is beautiful and the attendant greeted us with fruit and a cool drink. We absolutely loved a couples massage in their tranquil setting. They offer a free shuttle hourly to the night market."
