Amantaka
Luang Prabang

A quiet hit with peace-seeking Aman lovers, Amanataka is set on a garden estate and housed in graceful 19th Century French buildings in Laos UNESCO protected town of Luang Prabang. Cool and calm with colonial touches and local influences that reflect the Town’s colonial history, this graceful hotel was once the provincial hospital and has redefined the concept of luxury in this disarmingly charming town. 

Flanked by shady verandas at the heart of the property is a large shimmering pool, as well as a well-equipped gym and an indulgent Aman spa (including four treatment rooms, steam and sauna facilities and hot and cold plunge pools). Nearby, a library can be found, as can a breezy pool terrace - the perfect spot for casual dining. Spread tastefully around a spacious grassy courtyard just beyond the pool are the hotel’s 24 suites, whichrange in size from 70-120 square meters, (depending on your preferences, choose between Suite, Pool Suite, Khan Suite, Mekong Suite and Amantaka Suite). Sixteen of the suites offer private pools and the two standalone Amantaka Suites are encircled by large verandas, complete with private treatment rooms, spacious outdoor entertaining areas, a private pool and separate living and dining areas.

The hotel offers three dining options from authentic Lao and French-influenced cuisine to the finest international fare. Make sure to try the house specialities, the makkam and the laojito (traditional Laotain aperitifs). The Dining Room provides an airy colonial ambience while the Lounge Bar is ideal for afternoon tea, and private dining can be arranged in a choice of secluded locations around the property upon request.

Amantaka is within a short strolling distance from the picturesque banks of the languid Mekong River, as well as the town’s former Royal Palace. Guests can also easily reach nearby the temples, bakeries and boutiques that line Luang Prabang’s main street, as well as the fabled night market. To add to its strengths, this property provides great service and can organise extensive cultural activities to guests, including walking tours of Luang Prabang, a visit to the Mandalao Elephant Sanctuary and Mekong River Cruises.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
Bill Bryson

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
