AVANI+ Luang Prabang is a delightful hotel that feels very much at home in this, one of South-east Asia’s most spiritual cities.
An immaculate ensemble of white walls, teak wood and green plant life makes for a peaceful backdrop here, compounded by the oversized swimming pool with its cerulean waters. An overriding feeling of zen washes over as you make your way through the AVANI, welcomed by gracious staff who will be ready and waiting to assist in whatever way possible.
A true sanctuary-like resort, the AVANI is also well-placed for soaking up the magical atmosphere of wider Luang Prabang, with the night market right opposite and Mekong River just a short stroll away. This is the place to experience the almsgiving ritual at the break of dawn, delivering food to the cloaked monks as has long been the tradition here in this divine city. Afterwards, return to AVANI+ Luang Prabang for a delicious spread laden with pastries and coffee, perhaps take a nap in your cocoon-like guestroom, or opt for a yoga session to both reconnect and recharge.
The rest of your day might involve delectable meals at the hotel restaurant, or any of the eateries lining the banks of the Mekong. You could head out to explore temples, charter one of the AVANI’s own boats for a river cruise, or simply stay put at the hotel bar and people watch with a sundowner or two.
Unwind in one of 53 tastefully adorned rooms and suites at the AVANI+ Luang Prabang, all teak floors, natural light and useful mod-cons. Every room features a balcony or terrace, minibar, coffee machine, rain shower, Wi-Fi and flat-screen TV, as well as a soothing backdrop of white walls, crisp bed linen and light wood, making for a relaxing stay in Luang Prabang.
A fusion of western and local fare is served at the hotel’s restaurant, such as spicy salmon tartare, oven-baked pizzas and khao soi soup – to name a few. The ingredients that make up each dish are sourced locally and sustainably, with the aim to support Laotian suppliers.
Above the restaurant, AVANI’s chic bar is an open-air affair from which you can watch the world go by, drink-in-hand.
An elegant spot for daytime drinks as you lounge poolside, or for cosying up by the fire come evening. Should you feel peckish, wait staff will bring snacks from the hotel restaurant to you, so you needn’t lift a finger.
Activities and Entertainment
AVANI+ Luang Prabang is wonderfully located in the old town, with so many sites and attractions close by to keep you busy. Meander through the night market right opposite the hotel, or explore temples and monasteries like Wat Xien Thong and Haw Pha Bang for a dose of local culture, and be sure to experience almsgiving at dawn at least once. Stroll to the banks of the Mekong River, where a string of bars, restaurants and cafes lie in wait, or even take to the water on a cruise and get up close to the Kuang Si waterfalls – the hotel has two private boats to charter.
The large, turquoise swimming pool is the focal point of AVANI+ Luang Prabang, with plenty of sun loungers and parasols all around. The pool bar is close by, and manicured gardens with towering trees round the outdoor space off nicely. This meditative tone extends into the hotel spa, where an array of treatments – including jasmine body scrubs, energy boosting massages and more – leave you feeling relaxed and restored. A yoga pavilion and gym make up the fitness offerings, though if you prefer to watch sport rather than do it yourself, head to the downstairs lounge to catch a game on TV.
Luang Prabang, Laos. An easy 15-minute drive from the international airport takes you to the hotel, flaunting an enviable location in the UNESCO-stamped old town, with the Mekong River a short walk away and famous night market right opposite.
