"Set on a large garden estate, Amantaka is housed in graceful French colonial buildings in the UNESCO protected town of Luang Prabang."
The resort is located just south of Mount Phousi in the centre of the picturesque Luang Prabang peninsula. Airy and elegant throughout, the décor and furnishings reflect the town’s French colonial history.
Situated just south of Phousi Hill, the resort is within strolling distance of the boutiques, bakeries and restaurants lining the town’s main street. The fabled night market, the picturesque banks of the Mekong River and the former Royal Palace are also nearby. The resort provides access to the town’s many historic sites including more than 30 golden-spired temples and the former Royal Palace, a classic example of the town’s unique blend of 19th and 20th century French colonial and Lao architectural traditions.
Amantaka offers 24 suites ranging in size from 70 to 120 square metres each. These include eight Suites, four Pool Suites, eight Khan Pool Suites, two Mekong Pool Suites and two Amantaka Pool Suites. Entered from louvered doors from the courtyard, each suite contains a spacious interior and exterior living area.

Amantaka offers authentic Lao and French-influenced cuisine in a number of dining venues. The Dining Room provides an airy colonial ambience while the Lounge Bar is the ideal spot for relaxing with a pre-dinner aperitif or enjoying a snifter and cigar. The breezy Pool Terrace is a casual dining venue for lunch and dinner. Private dining can be arranged in a choice of secluded locations around the property, as well as in the privacy of guests’ suites.
There are two rainy seasons in Luang Prabang - between April and July and during September and October. However, during these times there is only likely to be a brief afternoon shower, which as it turns out is quite refreshing, and so travelling during these times can help you avoid the crowds. The most popular time to visit is during the cool season, between November and January, when temperatures are mild. Be warned that tourist numbers are likely to be high during these months.
