LA RESIDENCE PHOU VAO - LUANG PRABANG
3, P.O Box 50, Luang Prabang, Laos.
5 stars hotel!
Located in the hills just outside the center of town, La Residence Phou Vao (formerly known as the Pansea Hotel) is indisputably the place to stay while in Luang Prabang.
  HOTEL DETAILS

In Luang Prabang, where legends are told in gold relief on temple doors, stay at La Residence Phou Vao and enjoy the unique atmosphere of this resort with breathtaking views of the mountains and the peaceful World Heritage town.

Luang Prabang, the capital of the Lane Xang kingdom from 1354 A.D, is rich in cultural heritage with temples and monasteries surrounded by natural beauty. La Residence Phou Vao, part of the Pansea - Orient Express Hotels group, sits in three hectares of lush gardens, rich with bougainvillea, palms and frangipani. In the centre of the resort is a breathtaking infinity-edge swimming pool.

The best rooms offer sweeping views of Mt. Phousi and charming Luang Prabang. Décor is a timeless mix of traditional Lao and modern touches, and each room has outdoor seating areas where guests can lounge and enjoy the scenery. On warm evenings, roll down the mosquito net and open the sliding glass doors – just be warned that the neighborhood roosters are more than happy to give you a wake-up call! We also recommend indulging in Luang Prabang’s first and best luxury spa with a traditional Lao herbal treatment or Thai massage.

The 32 spacious rooms and two suites are a harmony of rosewood, cotton and silks and all enjoy private balconies with panoramic views of the countryside and town enhancing the sense of tranquility.

A passage, with doors painted with guardian divinities, leads to the restaurant, where French cuisine is served with exotic touches, as are very subtle traditional Lao dishes, all with impeccable service. The Dok Champa Bar offers commanding views from the terrace.

For visitors to Cambodia, the Phou Vao' s sister property, La Residence d'Angkor, offers a haven of peace and tranquility in Siem Reap.

Dining:
The Phou Vao Restaurant serves delicious Laotian and Western cuisine. It is without a doubt one of the nicest restaurants in Luang Prabang. With views of Mount Phousi, a warm ambiance inside and al fresco dining around the pool outside, it is easy to see why local expats choose this restaurant for romantic dinners. The Champa Bar also has views of the pool and Mount Phousi. It is a great place to enjoy the sunset after a day of exploring the city.

Room Type:
The 32 rooms at La Residence Phou Vao from the inside are very similar, bright, airy and decorated with rosewood furniture. The bathrooms have marble baths and white cotton sheets complete the delicate atmosphere. Each room has its own private terrace and balcony. Of the 32 rooms, 14 command views of Mount Phousi, another 14 of the garden and four of the pool and the mountain. We personally like the mountain pool view rooms the best.

Who should go with Luxury Travel?
Classical elegance fills the Settha Palace Hotel. Situated in central Vientiane, this immaculately restored villa is one of the city's only luxury hotels. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, guests will be delighted with the gracious service, timeless charm, and peaceful atmosphere of Settha Palace. Modern amenities such as wireless internet and satellite television blend in seamlessly with the hotel's historic setting.

When to go?
From November to February the weather is cool and dry while March to June sees temperatures soaring in to the high 30s (Celcius). July to October tend to be very rainy, washing out some roads thus making rural areas inaccessible. The Lao are very sociable and if you happen to be in the country during one of their festivals, you are sure to get caught up in the lively atmosphere! Pii Mai, Lao New Year, is in April and the celebrations include parades and water fights. The magnificent That Luang Festival falls in November and thousands of people and monks travel from remote villages to participate in the religious celebration. Several times a year Vientiane has boat racing competitions, where long wooden boats are raced up and down the Mekong River.

Where is it?
Settha Palace is located in the center of Vientiane near the Nam Phu fountain, a few minutes walk from the town's main shopping and dining area. The Wattai International Airport is a ten minute drive from the hotel and the land border with Thailand is just a half hour drive.

What's not to be missed?
Visit the ancient temples of Wat Si Saket and Wat Phra Keow. Climb to the top of Patuxai, Laos' version of the Arc de Triomphe. Learn about Lao textiles at Carol Cassidy silk shop. Wander along the Mekong River. Swim in the beautiful hotel pool.

What's cooking?
In keeping the hotel's understated elegance, the Settha Palace's restaurants offer delicious menus in a refined setting. La Belle Epoque Bar and Restaurant is the main dining venue. The bar is open all day, serving wine, beer, and cocktails as well as coffees and other non-alcoholic beverages. The Restaurant showcases classical French cuisine and offers a seasonally-inspired Lao menu, a fantastic opportunity to sample the delicious flavors of the local cuisine. For casual dining, Settha Palace has two options: The Sidewalk Café and Poolside bar which serve light snacks and drinks throughout the day.
