Lush gardens fringe the hotel's stunning infinity-edge swimming pool, which stops dramatically on the cliff edge.The swimmer will delight in uninterrupted views of the sacred mountains and the beautifully verdant valley below, with glimmering gold pagodas and shrines scattered across the hillsides.The freshwater pool employs a unique cleansing system which removes the need for artificial chlorination, enabling the swimmer to exprience and breath in the scents of the many palms, bougainvillea and fragrant frangipani shrubs all around.Emerald tiles give the 13 meter pool a rich, green hue.

Best of the Best

Perched atop Phou Vao Hill — the "Hill of Kites" — Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao will set your spirit soaring. Below lies peaceful Luang Prabang, Laos’ former capital; the same calming aura is evident throughout the resort. Guest suites are elegantly simple, blending local rosewood, parquet and rich textiles. Breathe the scent of bougainvillea and frangipani as you relax by the infinity swimming pool, its edge dramatically disappearing over the cliff. Bike into the Old City with a picnic, cruise the Mekong on a private boat, learn Lao cooking techniques and indulge in an herbal steam at the area’s first luxury spa.
