There is no bar or restaurant but that's no problem as it's just the right distance out of town (10 minutes by cycle or tuk tuk), where there's a high standard and great variety of eating places. The rooms are elegantly decorated in colonial style - dark wood and ceiling...

Booked an impromptu trip to Laos with no expectations whatsoever just the thought of escaping in our minds. As the plane flew closer to the country I knew this was going to be the beginning of a memorable holiday. Surrounding the small airport in Luang Prabang were mountains of greenery.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mekong Estate lives up to its name with five stately Lao-colonial style villas, all with a stunning vista of the majestic Mekong River and mountains. Each of the property's 10 well-appointed rooms and suites has a river view, private terrace and kitchen, and is designed to be your home away from home. Founded in 2005 as the first residence service in Luang Prabang, guests get to discover a local atmosphere and home-style comfort, an experience unparalleled to staying at a hotel in town. The rooms boast ample space, light, character and charm. Spacious living extends to the outdoors with verandas, immaculate tropical gardens, a 25m long swimming pool and of course, the property's namesake river.
