Avani, Luang Prabang Laos, Luang Prabang and The North
The Avani comprises contemporary elegance, French neoclassical design and Laos’ cultural heritage in the heart of the ancient town of Luang Prabang. Service is of a high standard, with modern comforts and quality facilities.
Just steps from the main street, the property sits in a prime central location for exploring the best of what Luang Prabang has to offer. In the morning, monks wander by during the Alms ceremony, while many temples and attractions are within walking distance.
The 25 metre pool is the centrepiece of the leafy courtyard with sun loungers dotted around and a banyan tree and gardens providing shade. If you opt to relax at the hotel by day, the poolside bar serves up cocktails and fresh juices while the wellness spa offers massages, yoga and a gym. Buffet or a-la-carte options are offered for breakfast and for lunch and dinner and guests can choose between classic bistro and Lao dishes.
Rooms vary in size and have been designed in an open-plan style, with French louvred doors opening out to either a private courtyard or balconies where you can relax overlooking the pool. With teak flooring, traditional Laotian fabrics and modern design, they are fitted with all the necessary amenities and comforts.
For luxurious comfort, a high standard of service and a central location, the Avani is a great option in Luang Prabang.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
We had a great holiday in Laos. Everything went extremely smoothly and we were very impressed with the organisation which went like clockwork! We found the guides very helpful and personable, particularly Say on the southern leg.
