” For luxury, style and comfort , the Apsara Rive Droite Hotel is one of the most appealing hotels in Luang Prabang ”
The former capital city of Laos and a UNESCO World Heritage City, Luang Prabang is one of Southeast Asia’s most fascinating destinations and, if you are thinking about making a visit, you should seriously consider staying at the Apsara Rive Droite Hotel.
A member of Secret Retreats, a curated collection of boutique hotels, lodges, cruises and restaurants around Asia, The Apsara Rive Droite has nine huge, elegant rooms each with its own terrace or verandah, overlooking the river and the heart of Luang Prabang.
The hotel has been designed in a contemporary style fused with a colonial twist, all nine rooms are large, spacious, airy and elegant with large fully equipped bathrooms, complete with separate showers and baths. The rooms have wooden floors, king size double beds with western mattresses, air conditioners and fans, safes, minibars, hair dryers, phones, and views of the temples and mountains of Luang Prabang. Hotel facilities include a restaurant, spa and outdoor swimming pools. The restaurant is open for all-day dining, serving fresh and delicious poolside and dining menus for those wishing to eat in.
The location is quite unusual, the hotel is situated away from the main town on the opposite side of the Khan River and is reached by a free shuttle boat, the Apsarian Queen, which is also available to take guests into town. Even though the hotel is only a stone’s throw from the town, its secluded location across the river is a beautiful spot with enviable views and a tranquil place to relax. If you stay during the dry season (November to May), a pedestrian bamboo bridge is constructed only 5-minute walk away from the hotel, allowing quick access into town. Bicycles are also available and you can pedal quickly into town using the nearby “Two wheels two legs only” bridge.
One of the must-dos in Luang Prabang is the traditional Giving of Alms, and The Apsara Rive Droite has arranged a unique experience with an authentic local flavour for its guests, this is a much smaller, more intimate experience than is enjoyed in the town where larger numbers of tourists tend to inhibit the experience. To keep you occupied, you can stroll the town, see some amazing temples, sample the local food, enjoy some shopping or take a day trip down the Mekong River.
