Walking through the streets of Luang Prabang, you are surrounded by history – from the centuries-old temples to the colonial French mansions. However, it’s hard to know exactly when or why they were built, which is why a heritage walking tour with Trails of Indochina is such an insightful experience, as your locally born guide reveals the city’s hidden secrets.
Rosewood Luang Prabang aims to provide family-centric fun for all, and that includes catering to its youngest guests. Rose Buds, the resort’s program for kids, is designed to provide children with a unique playtime experience in Luang Prabang, offering a range of special services, amenities and convenience items aimed directly at their interests.
Luang Prabang sits on a small promontory in between the Nam Khan and Mekong rivers, and for centuries the waterways were not only the sole way for residents to get in and out of the city, but also its lifeblood, supplying fish and fresh water. Today, you can experience the magic of Southeast Asia’s most famous river with a special cruise onboard its most luxurious vessels.
The scenic, peaceful journey to Ban Sangkong village is an opportunity to savor the majesty of nature first hand with beautiful river views at the confluence of the Nam Khan and Mekong rivers. Traverse a traditional bamboo bridge at the end of the peninsula before a short hike to the top of the hill, where endless views over the mountainous terrain await. Experience a sacred spirit house – the king’s guardian – which is a daily pilgrimage for local villagers who climb the hill to leave their offerings.

Hidden in the lush green jungle that surrounds the historic royal settlement of Luang Prabang, a river emanating from a flowing waterfall runs through the heart of this exotic retreat. Taking its cue from the French-Lao architecture for which the town is known, the interiors of the Luang Prabang resort reflect the influences of ancient temples, while luxurious tented villas celebrate the explorer spirit. Choose from the riverside suites, waterfall villas or hilltop tents that sit flush with the treetops, where you’ll be serenaded by exotic birds as you watch the sun rise over moss-green mountains.

With a strong influence from Laotian regional specialties, the menu truly embraces local culture. Our food and beverage program supports the local community through a ‘farm-to-the table’ dining concept that emphasises locally sourced and seasonal foods. This concept enables us to create a restaurant immersed in local identity.

Our wonderful organic kitchen garden at the property will provide herbs and produce for much of our menu.

The Elephant Bridge Bar is your destination for relaxation and refreshment. Although not used by elephants today, this wonderful wooden bridge—a nod to the area’s wild past—provides Rosewood Luang Prabang guests with a highly unique place to enjoy classic cocktails accompanied by traditional Laotian bar snacks. Interested in trying something different? Order one of our drinks with a twist, which are made using local herbs and spices grown in our own organic garden.
There’s an oval-shaped swimming pool in the gardens and a wonderful little spa upstream, with three treatment rooms featuring glass panel floors so you can gaze at the river while being pummeled. That’s it for the facilities, but Rosewood makes it up with a range of magical, highly personalised experiences – visits to ethically run elephant sanctuaries; meditating with saffron-robed monks in ancient temples; morning dips in secret waterfalls.
