A lot of hotels could take a lesson from the staff at Residence Phou Vao. The service, attitude and friendliness were superb. The hotel has all the amenities and qualities you would expect from Orient Express. Ignore any compaints about getting into town - it's the simplest thing and the elevated setting of the hotel can't be beat.

Designed in a traditional style, this intimate hotel is gemmed with teak, silk and fresh cotton accents. The hotel's Phou Savanh restaurant is famed for its wonderful French-influenced local cuisine while Doc Champa bar offers guests a range of Laotian and classic cocktails.

Furthermore the hotel offers a gym, boutique, tours & excursion desk, meeting room and organic garden with cooking class area. The hotel's 34 suites are elegantly furnished with emphasis on local styles and materials.
