Lao Spirit Resort is great escape back to nature only 15 kilometres or a 30-minute drive from Luang Prabang town.

Photo of Lao Spirit Resort
Six bungalows dot the hillside and all have pretty views of the Nam Khan River, an elephant camp and mountains. This German-owned resort is for those looking for a quiet spot to relax without modern distractions.

The bungalows are all exactly the same design and size, though three are closer to the river and the other three are higher up the slope. They all face the river and the entire front is floor to ceiling glass windows and doors so you can view the tranquil scenery and get natural light. The bungalows are roomy and solidly built with wood and stone, have a big terrace, rosewood floorboards, mosquito net, fan and bathroom with quality fixtures, bathtub and outdoor shower.

Lao Spirit Resort is up the Nam Khan River from The Elephant Village and Zen Namkhan Boutique Resort, with Tad Se Waterfall only a 10-minute boat ride away. Zen Namkhan is comparably priced but would appeal to those looking for a jungle feeling, privacy and a swimming pool. Their bungalows are slightly more rustic feeling than Lao Spirit.

It’s best to arrange a transfer through the resort ($25 per way), especially in rainy season as the shared dirt road which leads to Lao Spirit and Zen Namkhan is steep and difficult or sometimes impossible for tuk tuks.

Breakfast on their riverside restaurant is included. The resort often offers last minute deals – call or email them if you want to book less than three days in advance.
