Full accommodation information

With just 23 individually adorned guestrooms, enchanting valley views and easy access to the historic wonders of Luang Prabang, the five-star Bill Bensley designed Rosewood Luang Prabang hotel is among the most memorable, boutique places to stay in Laos.

The first thing to note about this luxury Luang Prabang property is its first-rate location, just a few minutes from the area’s UNESCO-listed highlights, temples and markets, yet far enough away to feel romantically secluded on the hillside. From boat trips to cultural classes, kids’ activities to temple tours, the Rosewood could not be better placed. You’ll also be continually treated to the sound of trickling water while here, courtesy of a river and mini-waterfall that dissect the gardens, something that only adds to the ambience when admiring those picture-postcard views from the pool.

The suites, villas and safari-style tents at Rosewood Luang Prabang all go on to feel just as exclusive, with each adopting its own décor scheme and location around the hotel grounds. This results in a range of views outside as well as themes and styles within, some coming with huge verandas, a private pool, or both. True to its design hotel credentials, the interior of both the guestrooms and dining spaces are also about as stylish as they come; faux-antique furnishings meeting French colonial architecture, Laotian artworks and an oriental finish to the finer detail. Somehow, the Rosewood Luang Prabang has achieved all this while still feeling thoroughly modern, fresh and relevant – the sign of a top boutique resort.

Visiting the small though deluxe onsite Sense Spa is as good as essential during your stay at Rosewood Luang Prabang. Glass-bottom treatment rooms (overlooking the foliage below) boast a menu of ancient remedies and therapies here, inspired by local traditions and forest-foraged ingredients alike. Just about everything served at the Great House Restaurant is also Laotian in origin, both the recipe combinations and source of the food itself, whipped up into fully contemporary fine dining that’s always seasonal, depending on exactly what is growing nearby throughout the year.

The 23 rooms, suites, villas and tents at Rosewood Luang Prabang all offer something different, from their view to in-room luxuries and size, though all are individually designed so exclusivity is always part of the package no matter which you choose. The décor scheme is vintage-chic and locally-inspired throughout with antique telephones, old-world maps and ornate four-poster beds among the various incarnations of Bill Bensley’s in-room vision. Mod-cons and comforts are decidedly more contemporary however, with Wi-Fi, espresso machines, standalone bathtubs and a balcony or veranda all coming as standard.

Riverside Room

Riverside Room

Sleeps: 2 Adults

A healthy 515sq ft of space plus a balcony and river views, the Riverside Room typically comes with a twin bed setup though rooms do interconnect if travelling to Laos as a family. A rain shower and standalone tub plus easy access to the hotel bar, restaurant and main building is also worth noting.
Riverside Suite

Riverside Suite

Sleeps: 3 Adults

Nearly twice the size of a Riverside Room at 980sq ft, the Riverside Suite comes with a king-size bed and large outdoor space to enjoy more of those enchanting waterfront views.
Waterfall Pool Villa

Waterfall Pool Villa

Sleeps: 3 Adults

Slightly smaller than the Riverside Villa though this is more than made up for with a private pool, alfresco showers and a large sundeck. You’ll also find an outdoor bar and lounge area within the Waterfall Pool Villa, some of which feel nicely secluded thanks to their discreet location enclosed in foliage.
Riverside Villa

Riverside Villa

Sleeps: 3 Adults

The Riverside Villa is a premium room with a huge furnished veranda, nearly the same size as the 720sq ft bedroom – complete with its own outdoor daybed and riverside views.
Hilltop Tent

Hilltop Tent

Sleeps: 2 Adults

The elevated Hilltop Tent is hard to beat at sunset, best enjoyed from the comfort of your private furnished balcony. A king-size bed, safari-style furnishings and the same in-room mod-cons as elsewhere around Rosewood Luang Prabang make this a truly memorable accommodation option in Laos.

Rosewood Luang Prabang’s onsite facilities centre around its gardens, outdoor infinity pool and spa. Pull up a sunbed and simply enjoy the surrounding valley views from either the sun patio or pool, perhaps popping into Sense Spa for a traditional therapy in one of their treatment tents. Here they proudly specialise in cleansing and ancient healing remedies, often using ingredients taken straight from the forest itself – a nice addition to the herbal massage menu, skin care and beauty salon services also on offer.    

The Great House Restaurant

The Great House Restaurant

From the décor to the seasonal, regional produce that fills the menu, The Great House is a proudly Laotion restaurant where homemade specialities, traditional flavour fusions and local ingredients – some grown onsite – are given a fine dining twist. Great gastronomy is part of the culture here at the Rosewood Luang Prabang, enhanced by beautiful countryside views to be enjoyed while you dine.

Elephant Bridge Bar

Elephant Bridge Bar

A semi-open-air and fully relaxed space that looks out over the surrounding gardens and scenery, the Elephant Bridge Bar is a fun area of the Rosewood in which to unwind, whether in the evening or during afternoons at leisure.

There’s a host of excursions available while staying at Rosewood Luang Prabang, including river cruises, tailored kid’s activities, dance and cooking classes, history and heritage walks, cultural tours to nearby villages, monasteries, and more. The temples, side streets, markets and highlights of UNESCO-listed Luang Prabang old town are then just 10 minutes away.
