Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao
Positioned atop a hill, gazing across the sacred mountains, Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao is an unforgettable place to stay. Its calm, tranquil ambience echoes that of the sleepy World Heritage town of Luang Prabang.
From expert-led cookery classes to enchanting Mekong River cruises, there are countless things to do in Laos.
The charming town of Luang Prabang is just a few minutes away by tuk-tuk.
Seemingly forgotten by the rest of the fast-moving world, the town is rich in culture and atmosphere. Visit local stores, temples and pagodas, or pick up mementos at the popular night market.
Meet with expert chefs on the outdoor terrace as they share the secret techniques used to prepare Laotian food.
Follow along step-by-step until you have a whole three-course meal to add to your repertoire. Round-off this unique experience by sampling your dishes in the restaurant.
Board a traditional boat and visit the Chomplot temple, the Si Moung Khoum temple and the Tham temple cave.
End the day and watch the breathtaking sunset from the top of Chompet hill, overlooking Luang Prabang and the Mekong river.
Take part in the traditional ritual of alms giving.
As dawn approaches, accompany hotel staff as they head into town to gift food to a procession of local monks.
