Hotel Amantaka, Luang Prabang

Airy, classically elegant in the French colonial style and set in a garden estate. A serene atmosphere, high ceilings, white marble – at Amantaka even the location is cool.

Why would you not specify Amantaka as one of the destinations – probably the high point – of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Laos? The hotel itself is the last word in quiet, understated visual elegance. Including white walls and floors, high domed doorways and windows, streaming sunlight and cooling breezes.

The suites and villa typically feature tented beds and direct access to the tranquil courtyard. The grandest of them even have their own private pools. And then, of course, is the Amantaka’s location.

It stands at the heart of the UNESCO-protected area of Luang Prabang, close to the mighty Mekong, within easy walking distance of the town’s attractions. You’ll experience the fabled night market, the Royal Palace, over 30 temples and streets lined with classic French and traditional Lao buildings.
