We had a nice stay here. The view is fantastic, especially while lounging from the rooftop pool! We visited during low season and the buffet and shuttle were not running. The hotel offered us rides to town whenever requested and we took tuk tuks back. The food and room service was adequate. Staff were kind and helpful, though we got much better prices on tours booking through town. When we first got to our room there was an enormous spider in it, perhaps entered through a large gap between the door and floor. Not necessarily something the resort can help but there were many bugs and geckos in our room. They did have a plug in mosquito repellant. Overall a good choice if you want to enjoy the view and don't mind being away from town.

Dear Both,

Thank you for your delightful feedback and comments, all are noted - we have discussed them in detail with our teams. though in regards to the shuttle was running though we offered a more personalized service to send you when you would like to go, belie this was informed upon your arrival. Breakfast correct we only show a buffet when we are busy though we offer a full breakfasts menu and you the guest can choose as much as they want.
apologies for the bugs and geckos though having a Gecko in a room helps to keep the mosquitoes at bay. again this point i have discussed with both engineering about the gap under the door this will be looked at soon.
thank you both once again.
Best regards,

A truly wonderful resort nestled on a hilltop overlooking the UNESCO Heritage Town of Luang Prabang. Great service. Outstanding facilities, including the best pool in town. Perfect for leisure or business.

An excellent hilltop alternative about 5 minutes from the increasingly vibrant Luang Prabang. Nothing but peace and quiet with a hypnotic view of the mountains. Super quiet and peaceful. I stayed in a Standard Room with a balcony, and relaxing is an understatement. The beds delevered me a sleep I rarely get. The dining and service quality os top-shelf. I dropped a fork at breakfast (brilliant food), and the waitress caught it on the first bounce. The staff reads minds and are unobtrusive, They pop out of nowhere to refill your coffee or juice before you ask. And they are very friendly and personable, and remembered me, which is I love. I was there for a 100+ person mini-conference that went perfectly. Best meeting facilities in Luang Prabang. Great infinity pool. And best of all, the GM John Williams always interacts with guests. Though a cliche, it was like being at home. Whatever you need, they'll get it. And they are always ready to drive you to town, and a phone call from town leads to an instant pickup if they aren't full. I'll definitely return.

Room Tip: Check out the rooms with their own pools

Having been traveling in Asia for many years it is very rarely to find a hotel which leaves you with such a heartwarming experience. From the first moment to the last we were in the best hands and would like to emphasize again the helpful, friendly staff and their excellence of services. The warm welcome from the General Manager upon arrival and his special attention on every details went beyond all our expectations. Great team and amazing location. Truly enjoyable stay which is recommended to everyone who visit Laos.

We booked the standard room but these rooms in our case were not in the resort but across the reception area in a separate building. The rooms were very nice and clean like the pictures on the web but rooms are further away from the main hotel complex. We requested a different room but only superior rooms are in the main hotel complex. Superior rooms were very nice, clean and very comfortable. Everything was excellent. Breakfast buffet had a wide selection of different foods. Pool was excellent. The location of the hotel is a bit outside of town, however the view of Luang Prabang is worth it. The shuttle that the hotel offers for free with a little bit of planning is very convenient. The driver was very good in communicating the times with us.

Just returned to the states from two months of travel in SE Asia with our children, ages 2 and 4. One of the many highlights was our visit to Laos. We booked three nights at the Luang Prabang View Resort based on on line reviews and were not disappointed. The resort was clean, well appointed, and super convenient. While not in the main district by the river, the free shuttle available to us made this a non factor. The staff was formal yet friendly. We were greeted by the general manager upon arrival and his assurance that all of our needs would be attended to did not fall short. The hilltop location is stunning and the pool was one of the best we found in all of our travels. The front desk personnel were very helpful with planning our activities and helping with child care and needs. Breakfast was excellent and the service top notch. I would highly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our suite looking towards town and the river in the distance

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The charming hideaway of Luang Prabang is one of Indochina’s gems and the showpiece of Laos. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995, the well preserved city is more of a sleepy backwater than a modern metropolis. Wedged into the confluence of the mighty Mekong and lesser Khan river, Luang Prabang's peaceful location sets the pace for the unhurried way of life in the second largest city in Laos. Its grid-like road network makes it virtually impossible to get lost, and the entire town can be covered on foot in a day. ... more   less
