Hotels in Laos range from charming riverside lodges to luxury urban villas. With such differing styles, you can stay in a selection of unique properties throughout your trip to truly experience the contrasts and character of Laos.
MORE THAN APLACE TO SLEEP
In keeping with the character of Laos as a destination, the accommodation across the country provides a genuine experience and heartfelt welcome. Whether you are interested in a sunset cocktail on the deck of a luxury riverboat on the Mekong, relaxing by the pool in a remote lodge to unwind after a morning’s trek or wandering into the oasis of a converted colonial after a visit to the night market, Laos hotels provide so much more than a place to stay.
Our experts will help you choose the best hotels in Luang Prabang and Vientiane while seeking out truly exceptional properties in more remote locations to create an unforgettable holiday in Laos. Our view is that the best places to stay in Laos enhance your connection to the country - it’s much more than bed and board.

Boutique and character
All across Laos, there is a wonderful selection of small and characterful properties that provide comfort, personalised service and a local charm. Our top choices will all add to the story of your holiday and help to bring the destination to life.
DELUXE AND LUXURY
Top-level luxury hotels in Laos are generally limited to Vientiane and Luang Prabang, although there are one or two beautiful lodges that allow you to experience rural life in style. The options at this level are full of charm and reveal the magic of the destination.
Eco and Unique
The beauty and majesty of Laos provides the backdrop for a range of unique properties, from stylish riverside lodges to simple mountain retreats. They all blend into and enhance the surroundings and are perfect for those seeking an eco-minded adventure.
With 11 main rivers meandering through the country, river life is absolutely central to the local way of life, whether that be the mighty Mekong or weaving through limestone caves. There is a variety of ways to experience this, whether by small boat cruises, day cruises with overnight lodge accommodation or for the really adventurous, camping by the side of the river.
Best of the Rest
The following hotels don’t fit neatly into our other categories. However, each has been vetted and approved by our roving Laos specialists, whether it’s a good quality city hotel or a low-key riverside retreat.
HOTELS WITH EXPERIENCE TRAVEL GROUP
At Experience Travel Group (ETG), we understand that the right hotel can make your holiday. That’s why every hotel in our collection has been personally vetted by a member of our team - we have our own rating system and pretty exacting standards, too (for every one hotel you see, there may well be five that haven’t made the cut!). Our main touchstone is that each hotel we work with genuinely enhances your experience of the destination. What might work for one traveller might not suit another, so your dedicated travel consultant will work with you to find properties that tick all your boxes.
