There are little corners of the world, small places that are so special that they are intensely personal and life-affirming. They are so nourishing and resonant as they are RIGHT NOW that you just don't want to even share them with anyone. The Villa Ban Lakkhan is just such a place, balancing that gentle LP vibe with a engaging boutique experience perched on the Khan river tributary to the Mekong. Villa Ban Lakkhan offers a series of small well-appointed bedrooms with clean bathrooms on one side of the street balanced by an excellent out-door restaurant named "The Indestructible Rock" overlooking the Khan river. Also included are free wi-fi and bottled water, secure room safe, room and laundry service and free bikes to get around town. All this is great but what REALLY makes the Villa Ban Lakkhan wonderful is Mr. Ono and his staff of attentive and always upbeat staff. Mr. Ono's own training as a Buddhist monk combined with a sensitive managerial efficiency informs the entire atmosphere of Villa Ban Lakkhan, and therefore sets the stage for the best sort of Luang Prabang experience for his guests. The location is perfect, just a few blocks away from all the hustle and bustle of the tourist shops and restaurants, markets and stalls. Rise at dawn and walk a block to participate in the blessings of the alms-seeking Buddhist monks from the multiple monasteries in the area, a morning ritual that transcends the flash-bulb tourists and gawking crowd. If you are serious about purchasing Lao silk and cotton weaving, Ock Pop Tok is right around the corner and erudite curator and dealer Patrice Bleton has his Le Pavilion De Jade nearby. Top-rated Tamarind is two doors down and JoMa coffee two doors the other direction. Why stay anywhere else ?
