Top 5 Homelike and Beautiful Resorts in Laos to Experience
Lao Spirit Resort
Our first name on the list of Laos’s best resorts is not meant to please those who love the buzzing and vibrant sounds of city life. Located 15km outside the symbolic colonial town Luang Prabang in a dense jungle area, this unique river-jungle resort offers valuable chances to immerse in the wild.
Five beautiful bungalows designed with environmentally-friendly wood and stone materials are set amidst the lively noise of Laos forests, evoking a one-of-a-kind experience. Each private bungalow also owns a large terrace overlooking the river and a collection of antique interior furniture to create a homelike feeling to the guests.
Besides, to minimize the disturbance and “intrusion” of modern life into the laid back vibe of the resort, you will find it hard to spot any electronic appliances such as TVs or air-conditioners. For some entertaining activities, elephant tours or kayaking in the Nam Khan Falls are the two most popular to discover the jungle in depth. Lao Spirit Resort, true to its name, is definitely one of Laos’s quietest retreats for recharging your energy and healing your soul.
The River Resort
If the gorgeous natural scenery is your top priority when looking for a place to stay on your Laos luxury tours, then the River Resort will meet all your expectations and even beyond. Situated alongside the symbolic Mekong River in the south of Laos, close to Wat Phou – a renowned UNESCO Heritage Site, the resort, in many ways, carries the soul of this beautiful country and becomes a symbol of luxury and originality.
The resort’s 28 guest rooms’ fine views are truly magnificent, with 22 rooms overlooking the Mekong River and 6 rooms opening to the world of the lively green rice paddy fields. The top-grade amenities such as an indoor and outdoor bathtub promise to bring nothing but the best experience for relaxation (and also the most-liked Instagram posts!).
Other outstanding utilities that the River Resort offers include two infinitive swimming pools, an open-air restaurant for enjoying Laotian cuisine, sunset cocktail cruises on the Mekong River, bikes for hire, and a luxury onsite Spa.
Nam Ou Riverside Hotel and Resort
Another competitive “candidate” in the list of the best homelike resorts in Laos! Set amidst nature and away from the busy center of Luang Prabang, Nam Ou resort is the definition of chilling and relaxing. You will hardly find the place crowded with guests even during peak season, helping to retain the resort’s peaceful and remote kind of vibe.
The riverside room offers stunning views, high-standard amenities, and amazing woodwork. The restaurant is also a not-to-miss place during your stay as it provides delicious food from Laotian and Thai cuisines at a very reasonable price.
All in all, Nam Ou Resort is a great place to escape the city heat for a couple of days thanks to the “remedy” of the river and crickets sounds at night.
Riverside Boutique Resort
Perfectly located on the Nam Song River’s bank, only a short distance from Vientiane, this resort brings together the local traditions and French colonial features into its decor and architecture.
The resort has been the owner of multiple awards for its outstanding facilities and services, and that would not be a big surprise considering its 34 rooms with truly spectacular views of the lush forests and limestone mountains.
Not to mention the beautifully-designed gardens, a stunning swimming pool, an elegant restaurant overlooking the river, and especially a traditional herbal spa, which can only be reached on foot or bicycles – all have added to the irresistible charm of this piece of tropical hideaway.
Lao – Seoul Resort
The last name on our list today is a traditional-style Laos resort with a convenient location and affordable prices. Situated in the heart of Vientiane, the resort stands out among others with its typical wooden houses, spacious rooms, and fully-furnished local amenities, creating a homelike and rustic feeling during your stay.
Suppose you are eager to learn more about Laos history and local lifestyle. In that case, this resort is an ideal stop as it is conveniently close to many famous religious sites such as Wat Si Muang, Great Sacred Stupa, and Wat Si Saket.
Laos has become increasingly popular among tourists who fancy an off-the-beaten-track and laid back holiday, far away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
