We stayed at modest accommodation for most of our time in Luang Prabang, but splurged for three nights at the Zen Resort to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the new year. We're so glad we did! The location is beautiful and secluded, the scenery is breathtaking, the staff - especially Kham Sane - are very accommodating, and the food is delicious with a great range of options (including vegetarian options). Our bungalow was private and spacious with a balcony overlooking the river, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. We took our cue from our surroundings and just relaxed for most of our stay, apart from a four hour kyaking trip down the river, via the Tad Sae waterfall. We were even lucky enough to see elephants bathing along the way. Our only disappointments were not being able to have a Japanese bath (no longer in operation) and deciding not to get a massage (as the massage room is not very private). Overall though, it was a wonderful 'retreat like' experience and one of the highlights of our trip to Luang Prabang.
