Staying here is like stepping into a scene from the film " out of Africa ." This is the ultimate place to stay for nostalgic romantics who regret not having lived in more colonial times . The bungalows (sadly only 6 ) are simple but tasteful and spacious - but the real beauty is that you are in the jungle...

This was the nicest hotel on our travel. Beautiful rooms with very friendly staff. It gave yiu a feeling of having stepped back in time with great luxury. Highlight was being waken up by elephants in the morning and them having a bath. The kitchen could have a smaller menu but sometimes a bit fresher food. Alltogether a great experience....

Stunning resort that provides sweet escape from the city. Lovely bungalows provide not only privacy but stunning view of bathing elephants along the Nam Khan River The resort's lovely staff and well maintained amenities keep me coming back for more. Try the 90min massage and order local Lao dishes!

Lao Spirit is a place to stay when you want peace and quiet! During the daytime, the nearby Elephant Village Laos is the perfect place to spend the day. Tad Sae Waterfalls is also a short boat ride away. At night, I found joy in the cool, breezy restaurant with some Lao beer. The rooms are adequately furnished and cozy....

We chose Lao Spirit because they are in close collaboration with Elephant Village - an excellent elephant sanctuary close by. The bungalow we had (No. 3) was overlooking the riverbank and the view from its balcony is breathtaking. It has a lovely four-post bed with a full mosquito net (although we didn't see a single mosquito the whole 2 days...

This was a gamble as we picked it without knowing anything about it and we rewarded with the most wonderful couple of days. The resort is nestled away in the hills looking right over the river. The accommodated is simple but extremely comfortable and thoughtfully crafted. The outside showers are particularly cool! I was offered a yoga mat which I...

We just spent 3 days at Lao Spirit Resort 15km in the jungle outside Luang Prabang. The rooms overlooking the Kahn River are exquisite and the staff terrific. We booked a trek through the jungle to two villages and a kayak trip back to the resort which was one of our trip highlights. Our guide, Kai, provided great commentary on...

From the moment we were met off our plane we knew we were in for the best holiday!!! Our driver was waiting and after a short 20 minute trip in a comfortable van we arrived at our small reaort in the jungle hearing the sounds of birds and nothing else. We were briefly escorted to reception and within 5 mins...

This place would be an ideal honeymoon or romantic getaway. The bungalows are charming, spacious and very comfortable. No TV, sporadic internet and no AC, perfect. The meals served are excellent, the wine is very good but the atmosphere is what sells the place. Yes, there are elephants bathing in the river across from the resort. The views are stunning,...

This was a special 2 day stay in the "jungle" .. our individual bungalow accommodation was so private and comfortable and we particularly loved the outdoor shower. The staff were charming and the food in the open all day restaurant was just great. Right on the Nahm Khan river opposite an elephant camp made it very interesting too and just...
