Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao

A beguiling blend of East meets West, Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao is an intimate tropical resort with one of the most magical views in, well, pretty much anywhere. A reflective pond extends from the lobby into the horizon, the infinity pool plunges into the jungle and the beautifully proportioned rooms, finished in rosewood, put the luxe into Laos.

ROOMS

 

34, including suites. The hotel’s suites are elegantly furnished with emphasis on local styles and materials. Echoing the natural décor of this Laos hotel, the suites feature a combination of parquet and traditional textiles to create an immediate sense of peace and space. Large windows provide plenty of natural light and open onto the exotic gardens. A conveniently arranged terrace offers privacy, comfort and tranquility.

 

 

LOCATION

 

Perched atop a hill with panoramic views of the city below, this stylish hotel is 3 km from both Phra Bang, an 83 cm Buddha statue, and the Royal Palace. The hotel is located 4 km east of Luang Prabang International Airport and only a few minutes from the old town of Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Free scheduled return transfers to the city center are available to all guests.

 

The town is beautifully-preserved, featuring traditional Lao architecture and European colonial buildings. It is set at the remote and peaceful confluence of the Mekong and Nam Kam rivers.

 

Seemingly forgotten by the rest of the fast-paced world, Luang Prabang features many beautiful temples and pagodas along with a selection of stores, markets and restaurants.

 

 

FOOD & DRINK

 

Phou Savanh Restaurant, open throughout the day, has a dramatic location perched above Luang Prabang. The Lao food is sumptuously presented and infused with secret spices, and the French dishes are beyond magnified.

 

The Doc Champa Bar offers the teaser of poolside drinks if you are feeling lethargic in languid Laos. Try the Legend of Indochina, a rum-based concoction with a veritable fruit salad of infusions.

 

 

 FACILITY

 

Decorated in traditional Laos style with sliding-glass windows opening onto garden terraces or balconies, the polished suites feature living areas with sofas, Nespresso machines and minibars. They also come with free Wi-F, flat-screens and iHome docks.
