Overview: Belmond La Residence Phou Vao

Situated on a hill south of the Mekong River, Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao is blessed with the treetops and mountains of central Laos as its panorama. The Lilliputian hotel, with just 34 suites, is an oasis of calm, reflecting the ambience of Luang Prabang, once ancient capital of the Lan Xang kingdom and today a UNESCO World Heritage site prized for its striking architecture and easy-going vibe.

Designed with traditional Lao materials—plenty of teak, rosewood, silk, and cotton—and set in a quiet area among local houses, this former royal playground is surrounded by 3.7 hectares of carefully tended gardens. It’s an immensely restorative place, one where the prevailing atmosphere is semi-rural—guests feel as though they are in the countryside—yet are only five minutes by tuk-tuk from the temples, markets, boutiques, restaurants, and bars in the heart of Luang Prabang.


Set on a hilltop, Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao in Luang Prabang, Laos, is a luxury hotel with breath-taking views of the mountains and surrounding the World Heritage town of Luang Prabang. A charming collection of colonial-style buildings set in luxuriant gardens the hotel is renowned for its scenic horizon swimming pool, French influenced local cuisine and an open-air spa beside a water lily pool.
