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 reflect the influences of ancient temples, while luxurious tented villas celebrate the explorer spirit.
Within 10 minutes’ drive from the historic city of Luang Prabang, the 14th century capital of ancient Laos and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, guests will be enveloped in an ethereal, idyllic setting as the resort is completely immersed within a virtually untouched natural environment. Rosewood Luang Prabang is the only luxury vacation destination in the vicinity with no sightlines to civilization. Luang Prabang International Airport is 10 km away, or 24 minutes.
VILLAS & TENTS
Set within a thickly forested setting blessed with natural water features including a meandering river and waterfall, each of the resort’s 22 spacious villas and tents will be bordered by a stream or riverbank. Guests will have a choice between eight deluxe villas, three garden villas, six private pool villas and five luxury tents. The 75 sq. meter luxury tents feature private dining areas and wraparound decks. While each accommodation will be unique, elements inspired by Lao tradition and French colonial style will be woven throughout, from design and architecture to use of indigenous materials and accents of locally inspired artwork.
With its charming colonial architecture, glittering Buddhist temples and memorable mountain scenery, Luang Prabang is a unique destination that offers a glimpse of another world. The historic old town area, which sits on a peninsula embraced on two sides by the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers, is a pleasure to explore on foot or by bicycle. Its UNESCO-recognized heritage buildings are home to an array of French-style cafés, boutique shopping, fine dining restaurants, lively local markets and cultural museums. The resort offers river cruises, heritage walks and cooking classes, among other exciting culture activities.
Rosewood Luang Prabang features three distinct riverside dining environments with a contemporary farm-to-table concept that embraces locally sourced and seasonal ingredients—some harvested from the resort's own organic garden.
In a pristine environment surrounded by majestic mountains, Sense, A Rosewood Spa, offers a variety of luxury treatments and signature holistic offerings. Spa Tents are perched on a hillside, offering inspiring mountain views and ascends upon the lush foliage and fresh running streams of the valley. The traditional treatments transcend the ages, where guests can experience time honoured healing remedies. Combined with riverside pool, this is a sanctuary of simplicity and purity.
