The best hotels in Luang Prabang

Looking for the best hotels in Luang Prabang, Laos? Easily one of the most important parts of planning a trip to a city is booking the right accommodation. For me a good hotel means it is close to the destination’s highlights, within walking distance from nice places to eat and have a drink and is both comfortable as well as authentic. Adding to that, all hotels listed are environmentally conscious without the stay revolving around this topic.  The perfect places to stay in Luang Prabang for green travel without compromising on adventure or comfort. True to the No Road Back travel style. 

– The best hotels in Luang Prabang –

1. Belmond La Residence Phou Vao

Booking Rating: 9.1 | Privates from EUR 352

I know, how dare I start with a EUR 300+ a night-er right after stating all hotels are in true No Road Back style? True,the belmond is expensive but if you can affort it, it ticks all the right boxes. Of all the hotels in Luang Prabang the Belmond is the only sustainable hotel that caters the top-segment. Excellent rooms with killer views, a nice infinity pool in a beautiful leafy garden, onsite spa and located within walking distance from Phou Si mountain, the riverside and the night market.

2. Luang Prabang View Hotel

Booking Rating: 8.8 | Privates from EUR 98

Being located at the top of a hill equals killer views. The Luang Prabang View Hotel is no different. This luxury hotel offers great value for money rooms as well as private villa’s with excellent breakfast, top-notch facilities including an infinity pool and onsite spa. It is about a 45 minute walk to the Phou Si which is stretching the definition of within walking distance from the city centre but with room prices starting below EUR 100 per night the View Hotel as a green luxury hotel is hard to beat.

3. Hillside Nature Lifestyle Lodge

Booking Rating: 8.8 | Privates from EUR 62

The Hillside Nature Lifestyle Lodge is probably the best hotel in Luang Prabang. It is comfortable and authentic, very well priced, environmentally conscious and located in an incredibly picturesque spot. The only reason it did not make it to the top of this list is because it is not located in the city centre but 12 kilometers away. Which makes it not ideal for short stays or solo travelers looking to socialize in town after nightfall. Staying for 3 days or more? Book it. You won’t be disappointed.

4. Zen Namkhan Boutique Resort

Booking Rating: 8.0 | Privates from EUR 55

One of the newer boutique hotels around Luang Prabang, Zen Namkhan is the perfect place to wind down for a couple of days. The resort is built-up of a collection of bungalows in the middle of the Laotian jungle with a big natural pool in the middle of it with a pool side bar and restaurant to cater to all your needs. It is located 20 minutes by car from the centre of town.

5. Kamu Lodge

Booking Rating: only direct bookings | Privates from EUR 120

As an experience Kamu Lodge couldn’t be left out of this list. For the price you get picked up in town by slow boat and taken to the Eco-lodge where you’ll experience life in a Kamu tribe community, and are catered for during the whole stay. There are cultural activities (included) in the lodge and you sleep in luxury tents in the middle of the nightly jungle sounds. I would advise booking Kamu Lodge as an addition to your Luang Prabang stay and not as your in-town accommodation in order to be able to devote all your time to the low-paced life in the lodge.
