The Belmond La Residence Phou Vao sits at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers, nestling on the Hill of Kites, overlooking the majestic Mekong and just a 10-minute walk from the centre of Luang Prabang.
The design and decor of the spacious bedrooms and suites, in rosewood and cotton, reflect the style and heritage of Lao architecture. With a large swimming pool, views over the mountains and town and a small spa, the Belmond La Residence Phou Vao is one of the best hotels in the town.
