“This is a place to feel at one with nature away from the hub of the town. Relax by the pool, enjoy tasty meals and soak up the serenity of Laos.”
Set amid tropical gardens and primary forest, Hillside Nature Lifestyle Lodge is a tranquil, eco-friendly resort 12 kilometres from Luang Prabang. This family-run lodge is a great way to experience Laos nature.
Accommodation is in nine bungalows constructed from locally sourced wood. The simple en suite rooms have a cosy, welcoming feel with comfortable beds, colourful textiles and local prints, and essentials such as mosquito nets and ceiling fans. There are floor-to-ceiling windows and spacious balconies overlooking the gardens.
The restaurant serves Laos-Thai and Western fusion cuisine using produce from the vegetable gardens. There’s also an outdoor swimming pool, and spa facilities in the form of a herbal steam bath and massages.
Activities include guided walks, nature treks, pony riding, yoga and meditation, mountain biking, and trips to Nahm Dong Park, which offers ziplining and treetop walks. There’s also a shuttle into Luang Prabang.
