Located on a peninsula at the confluence of the Nam Kham and Mekong rivers, Luang Prabang is known for its Buddhist temples and monasteries, preserved traditional architecture, and remaining vestiges of Laos’ French colonial period. These elements earned it the distinction of being listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. The city of just under 60,000 continues to inspire awe in tourists to this day, and with the opening of the Rosewood Luang Prabang, luxury travelers have the option to visit this destination while enjoying the level of comfort that the Rosewood Hotels and Resorts brand has staked its reputation on. The 24-room, suite, villa, and tent accommodations are designed by celebrated architect Bill Bensley and combine world-class luxury with local aesthetics. Guests are invited to enjoy locally sourced Laotian meals at The Great House or a drink and view from the Elephant Bridge Bar. There is also an opulent spa on site and a centrally located swimming pool, around which guests can enjoy a drink or a bite to eat in this haven of luxury.
Surrounded by gently flowing streams and a natural waterfall, the resort's 23 spacious accommodations flawlessly merge traditional Lao and French colonial aesthetics. The result is beautiful, sensitively designed decor and aesthetics filled with indigenous materials and locally inspired artwork. The accommodations also place a heavy emphasis on luxury. Top of the line linens and spacious bathtubs are the norm. Some accommodations are even equipped with private swimming pools. All rooms are fitted with high speed Wi-Fi access, a fully stocked personal bar, and a Nespresso coffee machine.
Located adjacent to the river, these rooms offer stunning views from their balconies of nearly 33 square feet. The bedroom is furnished with a plush twin bed of Frette linens and a work desk, while the bathroom is fitted with a rain shower and classic bathtub with double vanities.
At 298 square feet, the expansive Riverside Suites reflect the unique heritage of Luang Prabang as seen through the eyes of renowned architect Bill Bensley.

A fully furnished living room is perfect for relaxing, as is the daybed-equipped outdoor space. The bedroom features a plush king bed, and the bathroom is equipped with a rain shower and classic bathtub with double amenities.
These riverside villas provide stunning views of the cascading waterfalls that inspired their design. Covering 131 square feet of interior space and a 49-square feet outdoor portion, these villas embrace indoor-outdoor living. The interior is fitted with a king-size bed, a meticulously curated selection of antiques, and a rain shower.

While the suites look up at the waterfall, the Hilltop Tents look out over the tree line. Each of the six tents cover 246 square feet and are dedicated to a different Laotian hill tribe. Each tent's decor is unique and inspired by the Laotian hill tribe for which it is dedicated. Inside, guests are greeted by a king-size bed, oversized daybed, refreshing rain shower, and classic-style bathtub. The inviting oversized balcony offers a comfortable sofa and expansive views.

Situated in the center of the property, adjacent to the natural waterfall, lies the resort's oval-shaped pool. After taking a dip, guests can lean back in sun beds or day beds within tent-roofed cabanas. Waiters are present should guests want a cocktail or a bite of Laotian cuisine.
Overlooking the river, the resort's on-site spa offers a variety of luxury treatments and signature holistic offerings. Practitioners have combined time-honored practices with sustainably sourced natural ingredients to foster practices that are simultaneously timeless and deeply personal.
Organic and local are the cornerstones of the Rosewood Luang Prabang’s dining experience. With its own organic garden and close relationships with local farmers, chefs are able to utilize fresh, locally sourced ingredients in mouthwatering culinary creations from Laotian dishes at The Great House to local bar snacks at the Elephant Bridge Bar.
Centered on a community-focused “farm-to-table” dining concept, this restaurant features locally sourced dishes that change with the seasons — even the day. Ingredients are sourced from local farmers and the resort's own organic garden before being prepared in any number of Laotian regional specialties. Guests are invited to sit down indoors at the open-air terrace of daybeds and sofas to enjoy expertly crafted dishes while overlooking the gardens and waterfall.
A nod to the area's wild past, this bar is situated on an impressive wooden bridge where guests can look out upon river vistas while enjoying classic cocktails and traditional Laotian bar snacks, as prepared from local herbs and spices grown in the resort's own organic garden.
