La Residence Phou Vao
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. 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.
