Truly exceptional with incredible attention to detail

I’ve never stayed anywhere quite like this, the setting and facilities are great with the fantastic scenery and beautiful gardens, plus a quirky swing bridge to an island in the river where there’s a lovely infinitely pool. There are hot springs, spa treatments and the most wonderful food on offer but what makes this really […]


This is the quite likely the best place I have ever stayed. The service and attention to detail was exceptional. This was our first time in Laos with friends and we felt we really got to see and do so much in the area on a four night stay. Any less than four nights would […]

Beautiful, peaceful, luxurious, a class act

“The title sums up how we felt about this magical place. The location in Muang La is perfect – far from the disney-land tourist circuit of Luang Prabang (and a beautiful but bendy 5-6 hour drive from there as well!), it’s remote but therefore also perfectly situated for exploring the nearby rugged countryside with organised […]

Magical Muang La!

“We spent two very special days at Muang La and were super impressed with the personal service, attention to detail, glorious cuisine and luxurious accommodation. Jop and his team were fantastic and made sure we had everything we could possibly want. Highly recommend this unique spot to explore some of the most beautiful and remote […]

Probably the best place I have ever stayed

“My family and I spent two nights in this hotel as part of our trip around Laos in early January. I was immediately impressed by the homeliness of the hotel and the warm welcome we received from the lovely Dutch manager. The pool is absolutely stunning and the hot pools are so nice to spend […]

Most attractive place in Laos

We have visited Muang La Lodge several times over the last four years (twice this year) and find it to be the most exciting place to visit in Southeast Asia. A day trip (several on this trip) to the Hmong village coupled with the most pleasant service, local entertainment at Christmas, spa treatment, hit mineral […]

Good food, clean, comfortable and tranquil

Spa water fills the hot water tubs, in which you can relax before supper. The setting is by a stunning river, with farmers working the fields. The food was of a high standard. The rooms large and comfortable. Ours had a veranda overlooking the spa pools by the river in which the local villagers come […]

A great resort in Northern Laos

We had no idea what to expect but the resort proved to be beautiful. It is at the confluence of two rivers and has its own hot water spring. The staff are delightful, the gardens lovely and the rooms outstanding. But in fact the best feature of all is the food. The breakfast is fine […]

Unforgettable stay!

“My two days in Muang La were over my high expectations. Everything was fabulous from the location to all the attentions and details of service. The staff is so generous and warm with a special mention to the Lao staff who try and manage to speak English and to provide standard keys of hospitality services […]

Requires a Sixth Star

We spent two nights at Muang La Lodge last week and wish we had stayed two more nights. We have traveled to over 40 countries and I can’t recall a better hotel experience. From our greeting by the Assistant Manger, to the beautiful room, to the hot tubs and massage, to the gourmet 5 course […]
