“This serene mountain lodge in northern Laos is perched beside a glistening river with the idyllic village of Muang La on your doorstep. Expect to see villagers bathing in the river and working their paddy fields from your balcony. As the sun sets the lodge is lit up by candlelight and the resort’s concept of a ‘transient restaurant’ allows you to set up your dining table wherever you please.”
A scenic five and a half hour drive from Luang Prabang lies Muang La Resort, a retreat lost in a village in the North of Laos. Its locations offers a unique opportunity to explore the unchartered northern parts of the country by foot, mountain bike, 4×4 or boat.
The property consists of five wooden villas with a total of 10 bedrooms, built following traditional architecture and using local wood. Inside you'll find local art and woven fabrics, high ceilings, hot showers and balconies to capture the spectacular surroundings and provide modern comfort.
Lao-French fusion food is served in the restaurant and gourmet picnics are also available.
Relaxation is the name of the game here. Guests are encouraged to take in the peaceful and tranquil setting and tropical gardens. A natural hot spring, thousands of years old, feeds the resort’s spa, which is built four metres high so as to fully embrace the view of the river and mountains.
