“Great boutique hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2012

Lovely big and modern rooms,the whole hotel is really well designed and set into hillside overlooking the hills of Luang Prabang. Staff were excellent, food (and wine) were good and fairly priced for the quality and free bikes and shuttle into town were really helpful. The hotel looks immediately over a building yard and whilst not noisy when we were there it does spoil the view a bit. Also the pool area, whilst lovely, is very small so in the late pm when everyone is back and wanting to sit by the pool it is very busy and with just 8 loungers for 24 rooms there is just nowhere to sit. We would probably stay here again as the rooms were comfortable and the staff so nice but if you want to spend part of your holiday relaxing by the pool its probably not the best place.

Room Tip: All the rooms are set into a hill, overlooking the pool area with views of Luang Prabang and Mount P...

First of all the manager is so kind along with all the kind staff. The rooms are so beautiful if I listed all the good things it would take an hour to read. When you're coming out of the hotel turn left and keep going to till you find a little market (2 minute walk) It does not look like much from the front but once you go deeper into the market you will find all sorts of weird stuff like eels, lizards and owls. Last but not least the breakfast was the overall best part of the hotel, the selection is huge and it is really good.

I stayed at Kiridara with my family in October of 2012. It was a perfect place for us - close to town, but not right in the middle; easy access to action with the free tuk tuk service, but far enough away to feel at peace in the evenings; nice pool for the kids; top notch service and food (the breakfast was wonderful!); and above all, a warm and friendly place for our whole family. The manager, Francis, did everything possible to make sure our stay was a great experience. It's a great choice for families, as they have some interconnecting rooms that were perfect for us. It's a beautiful hotel, and it helped to make our stay in Luang Prabang very memorable.

My husband and I stayed at this lovely hotel from 1st-4th July this year. The manager, Francis and his staff were friendly and helpful. It was a very peaceful place to stay and an easy walk into town. We also used the free bikes to get into town and had no problem getting tuktuks back. The views across the valley are just lovely. My husband and I arrived in Luang Prabang with Laryngitis so were unable to do much sight-seeing but will return to lovely Luang Prabang and will definitely stay at Hotel Kiridara.

Pros:
- Great staff! Right from the manager (Francis) to the chef (Roberto) to all other people - were extremely helpful. The manager would often stop-by to engage with people and help with arrangements
- Great pool and wonderful deck for breakfast or evening drink
- The restaurant has limited menu (like most others in the town) but the food is really good. Chef Roberto is very kind to customize the dishes for you. They were very helpful to make special food for my toddler son
- Good Spa. Was more expensive than the ones in the town but definitely very clean and trained staff
- Can arrange baby-sitters on demand
- Offer free tuk-tuk service to the town within a 5 min notice

Our stay good even better as we got upgraded to a suite.

Cons:
- For a hotel that is just 1.5 years old the facility could be better maintained. Still very clean and good but doesn't feel like as new as it is!

Room Tip: take rooms on the higher side - more privacy compared to the rooms around the pool.

The Kiridara in Luang Prabang is on the more expensive side for Laos but worth every penny. Situated about 15 mins walk from the waterfront, the resort offers a complimentary tuk tuk to pick you up and drop you off when you want. They also organized a day trip for us to the Pak Ou caves and there were bikes free to use.

The rooms are beautiful and the room service was fantastic leaving little things like fruit and muffins behind. The pool area was a definite highlight providing welcome relief from the heat

The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Sometimes their English is limited but they always greet you with a smile. I have to say I think the service was the best I've ever had.

I'm already planning on going back to Luang Prabang and when I do I'm definitely staying at the Kiridara
