Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao
Luang Prabang

Top 10s logo 

La Residence Phou Vao has one of Ampersand's Top 10 Swimming Pools

Perched high on the Hill of Kites, this idyllic hotel is encircled by mature gardens and offers magical panoramic views. We recommend admiring these from the state-of-the-art infinity pool, where they are arguably at their finest, and taking a dip or simply reclining poolside to embrace the tranquility of this rural oasis.

The 34 generously-sized suites are elegantly furnished with local materials, from rosewood furniture to natural cotton fabrics. While none of the well-appointed suites interconnect, every single one of them has a private balcony facing out onto various scenic vistas: the lush gardens, the scenic azure blue pool or the atmospheric mountainous landscape surrounding Luang Prabang.

The warm and attentive service provided by the caring staff is a huge plus, and is particularly well demonstrated within the great on-site restaurant ‘Phou Savanh’, which harmoniously melds together Southeast Asian flavours with French influences. Not only can guests enjoy an outdoor al fresco dining experience here, but panoramic views onto to the arresting Mount Phousi are also provided from the spacious terrace.

Guests can also be treated within the Mekong Spa, which is famed as being one of the best wellness venues in Laos. Home to three lemon-grass scented treatment rooms, this is the perfect spot to unwind and indulge in authentic Laotian therapies packed with locally sourced botanicals, we recommend the Sip Sen Lao massage.

Luang Prabang is only a few minutes stroll away so local boutiques, towering temples and shimmering pagodas are practically on your doorstep.

Client Testimonials

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
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
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, 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!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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
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
