Amantaka (taka meaning Tipitaka, the teachings of Buddha and Aman the well-known luxury hotel group), is housed in a series of beautiful French colonial buildings with high ceilings and shady verandas.

Aman Resorts took possession of the site in late 2005 and after painstaking restoration under strict UNESCO guidelines, have successfully provided one of Luang Prabang's most beautiful properties. It houses 25 suites, some with pools and all beautifully decorated with Aman's typical flair.

Why we like Amantaka

The location is excellent, coupled with the gorgeous architecture and gardens with Aman’s usual attention to details and sublime service.


Luang Prabang is bursting with culture, a vibrant and fascinating town. Visit the town at sunrise to witness the monk’s daily Tak Bat – the accepting alms or offerings for the temple. Gently cruise down the Mekong on Amantaka’s private boat at sunset and spend a few peaceful hours in one of the many traditional temples.


  • Enjoy delectable food based on local produce
  • Relax with afternoon tea and pre-dinner drinks in the Lounge Bar
  • Amantaka’s spa is home to a host of traditional organic treatments
  • Unwind after a busy day of sightseeing by the central pool


Amantaka is in the heart of Luang Prabang, approximately 10 minutes by car from the airport.
