Culture is the blood of a social organism. Expressed in many ways, culture defines our past, present, and future. Stories we tell, traditions we celebrate, and deeds we do are outlined by our cultural heritage we carry in our DNA. In the age of globalization, the world has become a melting cultural pot. Learning about others might be useful as well as amusing. One of the few remaining places in Southeast Asia that preserves its historical connection to the past is the ancient town of Luang Prabang, located in northern Laos. It was assigned as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. With its royal palaces and over 33 wats, types of Buddhist or Hindu temples in Cambodia, many consider this tiny town, surrounded by mountains and at the merge of the Nam Khan and Mekong Rivers, the heart of Laotian culture. Located on the edge of town, Rosewood Luang Prabang is a luxurious outpost for exploring historical sights and ravaging authentic eateries.
Rosewood Luang Prabang encourages you to hop up on the cultural adventure. Guests are welcome to book private excursions such as trekking, mountain-biking and Mekong river cruises, all available at the property. The hotel is within a 10-minute drive from most of the local attractions, including wonderful Pha Tad Ke Botanical Garden and stunning Wat Manorom, while Luang Prabang International Airport is 4.3 mi from the property.
Choose from one of 23 individually designed riverside rooms and suites, featuring private terraces, villas with private pools, or canopied accommodations overlooking oriental landscapes. To imbue all delights of peace and solitude with French colonial chic, we recommend you stay in one of the waterfall pool or riverside villas that emphasize Luang Prabang traditions. Inspired by the indigenous hill tribe, a hilltop luxurious tents is the ultimate option for those who seek to truly be immersed in a natural setting.
While listening to sweet sounds of a bird orchestra from your cozy bed with snow-white Frette Italian sheets, don’t forget about the hotel’s exclusive amenities. Visit Sense Spa, where traditional Laotian healing remedies fuse with Western techniques to provide customers with divine relaxation. Easy to find, three separate tented spa villas are nestled along the hillside. Check out an amazing oval-shaped pool, with poolside bar service and tent roofed cabanas, featuring large day beds to enjoy the view. The pool is a perfect place to drop exhaustion after treks and excursions in “the abyss of the unconscious mind” surrounded by wild, exuberantly growing exotic plants and trees.
Indulge in a vibrantly flavorful dining experience at the Great House. This on-property restaurant offers a seasonal, daily changing menu, embracing local culture with a “farm-to-table” dining concept. We promise the mysterious combinations of ingredients will thrill your taste buds to the orgasmic state of pleasure.
