Amantaka

Enter a peaceful world of wellbeing in Laos’s spiritual capital, Luang Prabang, where over a thousand saffron-robed Buddhist monks make their way through the streets at sunrise and where the majestic Amantaka resort awaits you at the foot of sacred Mount Phousi.

The picturesque white-walled buildings with green shutters pay architectural homage to the region’s French-Colonial past and are home to an exclusive number of suites. Enter your own serenely luxurious suite where inside you will uncover high-ceilings, spacious living areas leading onto tranquil terraces and in many cases, a private pool. Local ingredients and Laotian tradition combine to create a delicious array of dishes in the Dining Room or at the Pool Terrace, while house specialities and apéritifs are served in the The Lounge Bar. Visit a morning market with Amantaka’s chef and take part in cooking classes on the resort’s organic farm, where you will gain an insight into regional cuisine.

Slip into a relaxing rhythm with therapies in the Aman Spa incorporating a range of signature treatments and products, swim in the expansive pool flanked by trees or enjoy a private Yoga class. Stroll through the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Old Town, embark on a Mekong River cruise onboard the resort’s custom-built boat or visit the Kuang Si and Tad Se waterfalls. Meet Kit, the baby of the ethical Mandalao Elephant Sanctuary, following him on a hike through the jungle and along cool mountain streams or rise at dawn to give alms to the monks as they pass Amantaka.
