A perfect place to relax. Elegant and luxerious with a quiet athmosphere. You have your own pool. Close to the center of the city where you find both the food market and the tourist market.

The property is new, I understand this and it is bound to have teething problems. But Aman, if you know you are going to have start up problems, then have an introductory rate or include some extras so guests can forgive the small issues. When a guest is paying full price - $1,000 a night - 3 times more than its closest 5 star competitor - then we expect full service.

The resort is beautiful, stunning, and the rooms are faultless. However, it was just the small things that wasn't polished, service was slow and we had to come looking for them to order drinks.

Overall the resort didn't really show the authentic laos spirit, it was a bit lost in the old hospital compound, which still feels more like a hospital and less a luxury resort.

Everything was lovely, but for the greedy bill at the end of the stay - breakfast was additional at around $60 a day - when you are paying so much per night, shouldn't the extras like laundry and breakfast be included. Breakfast was average standard, coffee was cold, croissants were manufactured etc. Has hard financial times got aman greedy?

As a lover of Aman, this property left me disappointed. Come on Aman, you can do better than this.

Luang Prabang itself is a wonderful town, and Amantaka is a beautiful, tranquil oasis to retire to after a day of exploring.

Service is full of nice touches like cool drinks and snacks set out in the afternoon, and local musicians playing traditional music at meal times (food was excellent, too, particularly the Laos menu). Often cool drinks etc were offered without us having to ask. We were given champagne and roses for our honeymoon. Absolutely loved the decor, our suite was immaculate.

Would highly recommend any of the day trips on offer, on all three we booked they went above and beyond to make it special. This is not a cheap place to stay, but we felt it was worth it. We would stay again.

After saying good buy Vientaine, Luang Prabang was an excellent top off to a very pleasant place Hotel Amantaka. Sightseeing was like a diamond in the rough. Definitely built and maintained according to high Western standards, this hotel was one of nicest one in our Laos trip. If you're taking a junk cruise along Mekong river you will see it by side.
Three night in Luang Prabang was not enough to us when staying at one of the best hotels in the town. If you can afford a bit of luxury this is the only place to stay. The food was great, and the hotel amenity was modern. The swimming pool is an excellent backup. The restaurant served up some wonderful meals too. A marvelous end to a wonderful vacation with travel to Laos.

We stayed for a long weekend in June for our 25th wedding anniversary - Khan Pool suite. Very peaceful, great grounds, especially as there are only 24 rooms, but very convenient for the town. Wonderful room and great service. The special Laotian dinner for our anniversary was superb. If you stay, go on the half day boat trip on the Mekong River in one of the Aman boats. They have adapted a boat that can accommodate 30+ tourists to have a sofa area, a day bed and a dining area and, in our case, just two passengers (the maximum would be 10). It is a private hire so you so not share with strangers. Tourists in other boats were taking photographs of it. Very special indeed.

Will definitely return.
