“Startling Architecture, Convivial and Gracious Staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

Our two plus weeks at Kiridara were the most comfortable we have had in more than two months of travel across five countries. The hotel has a unique architectural footprint wrapped around a lovely infinity pool with a straight line view to 'mount' Phousi and the layers of rainforest covered hills that surround Luang Prabang. The elevated location provides excellent viewing points to watch the wonderful sunsets and periodic afternoon storms that roll through the area.

Our room was spacious with large windows, plenty of natural light and a balcony. There was a large bathroom with an amazing bath, separate shower and toilet. The bed was king size and very comfortable.

Kiridara also has a Spa centre that provides a range of services - the ambience was lovely and we used the massage services and these were excellent.

The hotel has a very friendly professional team effectively led by the Manager, Francis Fernandes: a gracious host who was always available and generous with his time and advice about local attractions and a little of the nuance of the township.

The hotel provides a free door to door shuttle service that includes an electric Tut Tut with drivers happy to deliver guests to town and also to collect them directly from local restaurants up to 10pm. This service takes the uncertainty out of travel for the newly arrived and helps guests orientate to the township.

The Hotel has a very good restaurant with Laotian and Western style options and is structured in a way that enables the guest to watch the chef and kitchen staff preparing meals. As you would expect, the quality of food for breakfast, room service and pool snacks is excellent.

We had a happy and relaxed time at Kiridara, were well cared for and will encourage friends and family to stay.

Room Tip: Given the design and elevation, all rooms have town facing views with good natural light.

A unique, beautiful, serene, mountain view boutique hotel.
We spent 3 nights here and our stay was extremely comfortable.
The rooms were clean, with nice amenities and a tropical fruit platter.
Their turn down service was amazing also. Very welcoming.
Their young staff are very friendly and energetic. They also had shuttle service to take us from hotel to town weather it was for a restaurant or to go to the local night market.
The pool is beautiful also. A magnificent property with serenity.
This is the place to stay while in Luang !! I would highly recommend and would come back also.

Room Tip: Room at a higher level would have a better view and more light.

Had a fantastic time at Kiridara . Staff were friendly, warm and efficient. Had a surprise birthday cake as it was my birthday. Distance was not an issue as there were free shuttle services. Love the pancakes during breakfast

We stayed at Kiridara while visiting Luang Prabang, and the time we spend here was absolutely lovely! The room we had was amazing, very nice and comfortable, and it also had a breathtaking mountain view. The surroundings of this hotel were outstanding, giving me a sense of calm and peacefulness, and it was my favorite part of our stay. Our experience here really was great and incredibly relaxing, and the friendly staff made it even better. I definitely recommend it to everyone that is visiting this area, and I can assure you will not regret it.

A beautiful boutique hotel overlooking the town and with mountain views. The staff were all incredible spoke English and couldn't do enough for you. The little touches like a fruit platter in your room and a nightly turn down service complete with a small bakery item ....nothing was too much trouble. They have a complimentary shuttle service into town which also picked us up of an evening after we dined at the restaurants or attended the nearby night markets.Would definetly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Luang Prabang.

However, nothing you read here or on other reviews will prepare you for the experience of staying at this property. It is the ultimate vacation destination if a cozy setting is your choice of venue. We really love spending time together and we always enjoy our trips away, however, this hotel is just amazing. The surroundings are stunningly beautiful. The service was excellent and the staff also was very helpful, it is worth every peeny you spend.

A gorgeous hotel up on a hill overlooking town. We had 5 nights of absolute bliss in this haven. Service was awesome and the breakfast was unbeatable. It was freshly prepared and delicious.it has a beautiful pool and I felt so relaxed each time I step into the hotel. Will definitely return. Highly recommended.
