          Hard to imagine a more perfect hotel”

          Attentive service, gorgeous location, amazing spa, phenomenal food from Tunisian chef, excellent wine selection

          many of my friends had stayed here and raved about this luxury hotel, but i was always reluctant to stay at a self-contained resort outside of town because i so enjoy being in the centre of luang prabang. on this holiday my friend and i chose the best of both worlds -- three nights at the three nagas right in the centre followed by one night of total pampering at la residence phou vao. it was the right order, because nothing can top la residence phou vao and indeed we never left the grounds because it was pure heaven. i can hardly wait to get back. absolutely everything here is perfect. the suite itself had me giggling at all the lovely touches -- flowers on the toilet and the toilet paper holder??? the spa was perfection and the food was absolutely perfect. one could run out of superlatives here. just one tiny detail sums it all up: i travel with some small dolls that my little niece gave me to photograph all over the world. when i came back from dinner, the person who had done the turn-down service had arranged them sitting up on their own little seat made from a linen towel, complete with a red carnation. now that kind of attention to detail spells a great hotel!

          Beautiful Hotel with impeccable Service”

          The dinner resturant is the best in Luang Prabang with service to match

          From the minute we were picked up at the airport by one of the staff from the La Residence Phou Vao Hotel we knew we were going to enjoy our holiday. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and has a fantastic view of the mountains across the Mekong River. There are many fine hotels in SE Asia but this one situated in the wonderful little town of Luang Prabang is not to be missed. Hopefully the addition of a new runway at the airport will not change things too much. The hotel offers a sunset cruise which is not to be missed. The Captain motored our private teak craft up the river, turned off the motor and allowed us to drift back along the river in time to catch the sunset between two mountains. Just a sample of the detail of the service the staff has been educated to provide. Visit now before anything changes.

          Pak Ou Caves Personal Tour, Restaurant and Romm

          I enjoy my stay at La Residence Phou Vao, which was started with the Pak Ou Caves tour arranged by them. It was perfect, lunch in the island is the best part for us. We enjoy the room with fantastic view and also the unique bath tub. The infinity pool in the spa area is gorgeous and they do make some interesting flower arrangement. Restaurant is great as they really open and wait for us as the last guest there, which we appreciated. However spa services could have been improved by providing drink during before or after spa.

          SETTING, VIEWS, FOOD QUALITY, BEAUTIFUL STAFF WHO ALWAYS ADDRESSED US BY NAME
          Sorry! Cant find anything negative about this one.

          This incredible boutique hotel is really something!Under the caring and ever watchful eye of hotelier Philippe Bissig my wife and I Felt we were guests in a private home. La Residence Phoh Vao is so unique its worth the trip to Laos just for the experience. We are a couple of foodies and rate the Lao inspired French cuisine at the top of the best we have tasted and an excellent wine list, all at sensible prices.Infinity pool, and pampering Spa for the girls

          Beautiful Hotel. Fabulous staff”

          The location. The Pool

          a wonderful stay. lovely room, which was spacious and well equipped and had the spectacular view over luang prabang. the hotel is quite small and feels very intimate, with nothing being too much trouble for the excellent staff. we loved being able to flop into the pool after the heat of the day's activities. although the hotel is slightly out of town, the hotel's transport options worked seamlessly and we never found this to be a problem. if i had one complaint it would be that some of the pricing on trips seemed a bit on the high side, perhaps because everything is rounded in usd. however all the excursions we took were sensational. mainly just the two of us plus a guide, terrific organisation and lovely picnic lunches
