We really enjoyed our stay at Hillside. It is located in the nature outside Luang Prabang but they also offer a shuttle to the city. Furthermore there are nice walks to some waterfalls and the swimming pool is great! The food in the restaurant was fantastic! We highly recommend a visit to Hillside!

After a few days in the city, and all its attractions from temples to foodies, we aimed for a bit of country side and our choice fall on the Hillside.

Hillside resort is an amazing place to stay. Total relaxation. A wonderful location set amongst beautiful trees and shrubs and over-looking as much limestone cliffs and jungle as you could wish for. Excellent staff with a real family friendly atmosphere

It was a fantastic stay in a nice resort. Just a very short trip from Luang Prabang. Very nice surroundings. We met some natives and were invited by them for a beer. If you stay in Luang Prabang don't miss your chance!

“We had the family bungalow which was two doubles and one king with a divider. It was fine but I also noticed two cabins that share a wall with twins in one and a king in the other which would be a good set up if you have tweens or older, like we do.”
