“Value resort accomm near Luang Prabang”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

Let me start with the good stuff because we really did enjoy our stay at the Paradise Resort. As it was the hot season in Lao, we wanted somewhere with a nice pool to return to each day. It gets full marks for the size of the pool, which is immaculately maintained, and the surrounds. There are pavilions and shaded lounging areas where you can sit back and read your holiday book while the kids splash happily away.

The staff are super friendly and helpful in a laid-back way. What they may lack in five-star hotel polish, they more than make up for in their desire to help you have a good time. Their authenticity and warmth was a memorable part of our trip to Luang Prabang.

Breakfast was adequate and kept us going for the morning but the buffet was very basic. I did, however, enjoy my custom-made omelette each day.

We stayed in the large family suite which has two air-conditioned bedrooms. The remainder of the space is not air-conditioned but we did not find that a problem in the evenings when the temperature falls. This suite could do with a really good refurb, with special attention paid to the bathroom and the curtains in all rooms. Mosquitoes lurk in the evenings but we resolved this by using insect spray and the netting over the beds.

The cost of having laundry done was outrageous. Take your bag into town and have it done somewhere there rather than using the hotel service. And here's a Tip for management: fence off the shabby car park area to the left of reception as you enter ... it really detracts from what are otherwise quite pleasant grounds.

Summary: good value place to stay if you don't want to be in central in Luang Prabang and would like somewhere with a lovely pool to relax by.

We stayed here for three days in the 2 bedroom family unit. It was huge. There was air-con in the bed-rooms and a fan in the living area. The rooms were tastefully decorated with local wall-hangings and the beds had mosquito nets.
The staff are absolutely delightful and ready to help. Dorr is beautiful. Minibus service to town is helpful.
Lovely pool and gardens .
Hotel is about ten minutes by tuk-tuk from main part of Luang Prabang.
Don't miss elephant riding.

A lovely resort made up of neat villas in pretty gardens. Our room was very large, with a similarly generous bathroom, featuring a deep tub that kept our 4 year old as happy as the swimming pool did! Fitted and furnished in wood with a huge four poster, soft white bedlinen and all necessary mod cons (kettle, fridge, TV, safe). Staff were charming, friendly and very helpful. We borrowed bikes for the 10 minute ride into Luang Prabang, or took the hotel's free shuttle, which runs back and forth four times daily. Fresh fruit and salads, eggs cooked to order and delicious bread on the breakfast buffet. Very highly recommended.

This was our first trip to LPB for 6 years and so we were ready for a shock but it was a really nice place. Not over priced and good staff to make us feel friendly. We liked the food and Laos is not renowned for food so we were happy. The place is close enough in a small town to get about. The only negative thing was a noisy honeymoon couple in the room next to us and we asked to be moved the next day but that can happen anywhere and we hope they enjoyed themselves after we had moved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Try the place if you come here and ask for a quiet non smoking room.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be good

We stayed at this resort for 6 nights. We arrived late in the evening and were greeted by a friendly member of staff. We liked our room (riverside view). It was clean and had everything we needed. We ate a delicious meal at the restaurant which was open until late. The breakfasts were substantial and we rarely needed lunch. Being close to a local Wat or being under the flight path was never a problem with regards to noise. The TV reception was fine except one night. There was free wifi which was hit and miss but we were also able to use a PC at reception for internet browsing. We met the owner who was most happy to show us around. The staff were friendly and courteous and always willing to please. We used the free shuttle a few times which was very handy. When we walked into town it took us about 20 minutes via the bamboo bridge. Everything is within walking distance and we especially enjoyed visiting Wat Xieng Thong. We mainly ate at a restaurant called Xieng Muan because their curries were delicious. Opposite was a place called "I Like Sweetie" which served delicious home made ice cream and pastries. The best ATM we found was BFL (2 million kip withdrawal for 30,000kip fee). We arranged a bus to Phonsavan and a flight from Vientiane to Pakse through a company called LuangChith (opposite BFL bank) who we found to be reliable and efficient. We thoroughly enjoyed Luang Prabang and were really able to chill out at the Paradise Resort.

spent a week here in February 2013. On the whole loved it. The staff were very helpful and sweet and went out of their way to please. The bedroom was simply furnished but everything worked and the ac was the quietest i have experienced in se asia! Pool was gorgeus and the surrounding garden lush and well kept. The main drawbacks were the poor times of the shuttle bus, a noisy nearby bar, and very simple breakfasts but they were served with such a smile, it didnt matter too much. I actually loved the monks chanting and temple gongs, it really added to the whole atmosphere of being Laos. One of the staff took us to the temple and it was a beautiful experience. The tuk tuk service into town was fine, but quite costly if you did it four times a day! On the whole the positive outweighed the negative and I would return.
