Belmond La Residence Phou Vao

Belmond La Residence Phou Vao
is located 4 km east of Luang Prabang International Airport and only 2 km from the old town of Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The town is beautifully-preserved, featuring traditional Laotian architecture and European colonial buildings, set at the remote and peaceful confluence of the Mekong and Nam Kam rivers. The hotel enjoys a unique location as the only hotel in Luang Prabang built on Phou Vao Hill - translated as the hill of the kites. This vantage point affords panoramic views looking out over the countryside.

The rooms are furnished simply and elegantly, with emphasis on local styles and materials. The shimmering rosewood of the furniture contrasts beautifully with the rich, natural cotton fabrics. The large bathrooms have roomy freeform marble baths. All rooms have a hair dryer, satellite television, mini-bar, personal safe, air conditioning and international direct dial telephone. Hotel is  also pleased to be able to provide fresh flowers in your room on arrival and bottled drinking water is replenished daily.

Experienced and talented team of chefs, create delectable dishes that perfectly blend Laotian and continental European cookery traditions. Phou Savanh Restaurant offers a choice of indoor and outdoor seating and serves traditional Laotian cuisine alongside European dishes with local influences. Doc Champa Bar, the hotel's cocktail bar, offers a comfortable indoor lounge and outdoor seating, with fabulous views over the swimming pool and beyond, the perfect place to enjoy an aperitif as the sun sets.

The Mekong Spa at La Residence Phou Vao is the first luxury spa in Luang Prabang, Laos. Built in traditional local materials, the spa pavilions are decorated in an inviting mix of ethnic craftsmanship and modern comfort. Each is decorated in a contemporary style with Laotian accents using wooden furniture and elegant wall panelling made of hand woven local silk. The Mekong Spa offers a full range of face and body treatments including facials, massages, body scrubs, body wraps and packages for individuals and couples. The custom-designed spa treatments are based on traditional Laotian herbal remedies aimed at healing and nurturing, and use only pure botanical ingredients from local organic gardens and farms.

Lush gardens fringe the hotel's stunning infinity-edge swimming pool, which stops dramatically on the cliff edge. The swimmer will delight in uninterrupted views of the sacred mountains and the beautifully verdant valley below, with glimmering gold pagodas and shrines scattered across the hillsides. The freshwater pool employs a unique cleansing system which removes the need for artificial chlorination, enabling the swimmer to experience and breath in the scents of the many palms, bougainvillea and fragrant frangipani shrubs all around. Emerald tiles give the 13 meter pool a rich, green hue.

The catering team at La Residence Phou Vao has a vast experience in arranging and hosting unforgettable luncheons and events in the most exotic and unique settings that Luang Prabang has to offer. Whether you're celebrating on the elevated garden facing the famous Pak Ou Cave, or throwing a cocktail party at the UNESCO World Heritage Villa next to the great Kwangsy Waterfalls, La Residence Phou Vao can cater with pleasure for up to 200 people.
