Heart Of The Mekong
As Laos reopens with a lifting of all entry requirements for vaccinated travellers Avani+ Luang Prabang Hotel, a stylish sanctuary in the heart of the Mekong Riverside town, inspires guests to benefit from an exclusive three-night package. Reconnect with this heritage destination and combine unique experiences in Luang Prabang as well as indulgent spa journeys.
The UNESCO World Heritage site of Luang Prabang offers a picturesque fusion of traditional Laotian style blended with the French colonial influence of the 19th and 20th centuries as reflected in the architecture and colonnaded streets. A lively night market and exquisite bakeries line the main promenade, and culture vultures will be delighted to explore the pagoda studded temples and climb Mount Phousi viewpoint for the best vantage of the city. An unmissable experience for every visitor to Luang Prabang begins with a sunrise wake up call, as orange robed monks bob through the streets and locals and tourists offer early morning alms.
Centrally located, Avani+ Luang Prabang is constructed around an inviting swimming pool that acts as the balmy centrepiece of this heritage hideaway. Open plan rooms offer teak furnishing accentuated with local soft furnishings, whilst French doors open onto shady terraces overlooking manicured tropical gardens. Unwind after a day’s exploration at the Anantara Spa which offers signature journeys rooted in holistic practices and indigenous experiences. Guests will benefit from exclusive reopening savings.
The Mekong River flows through the heart of Luang Prabang and as such Avani+ Luang Prabang has partnered with Mekong Kingdoms to offer guests an exclusive sunset cruise. Glide down the river backdropped by rolling mountains and jungles whilst nibbling gourmet canapés and sipping signature cocktails as the sun sets on this unique corner of Asia.
Luang Prabang is famed as a gateway to the breathtaking surrounding scenery, including the Kuang Si waterfalls and Pak Ou caves. Return to the must-see attraction of the cyan blue falls ahead of the crowds to take a dip in the crystal-clear rock pools and climb to the highest cascades for a picnic. A cruise to Luang Prabang’s most holy sites includes a visit to Pak Ou Caves, ascend the dramatic limestone crags to discover caverns filled with thousands of Buddhas amassed over centuries.
The scenery, the spiritual and the sacred are all interwoven into the cultural fabric of Luang Prabang. Nowhere better showcases this than the artisan corner of Ock Tok Pop, set in lush gardens a short stroll or bicycle ride away, this living crafts centre weaves the history and heritage of Laos through its textiles. Avani+ Luang Prabang is the perfect base for exploring the ancient capital. Timeless monuments and local markets abound, offering enchanting glimpses into local life at every corner.
