Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao

Set on a serene hilltop, just moments away from the treasures of Luang Prabang, Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao is a beguiling sanctuary affording spectacular cloud forest vistas. Relax in our luxuriant gardens and open-air spa, cool off in the freshwater infinity pool and savour French-influenced Lao cuisine at our celebrated restaurant.

Our 34 suites are housed in colonial-style buildings embracing traditional Lao architectural inspirations. Be welcomed by a soothing ambience that mirrors the tranquil town of Luang Prabang below. Large windows flood rooms with light and let the outside in. Pad across a polished parquet floor and out onto a sun-soaked private balcony. Brightly-coloured flowers, fruits and handmade local textiles dot spacious suites, reflecting the vibrant spirit of Laos.
