Utopia is a very special and unique place, and our typical customers will come back every day!! Don't wait until your last day to find Utopia.

Visit this place and enjoy the relaxation and have a cocktail whilst looking over the Mekong river lay on a comfortable seat. Really romantic at sunset

If sitting on cushions in a tropical garden is your thing than Utopia is the place to be. Candles get lit on all the tables at night creating a cosy atmosphere. Great place to meet people as the night gets going. Beware if it rains everyone dashes inside making it crowded so make sure if it's cloudy to choose a seat inside early! Volleyball games and weird random videos on a projector also get played. The food looked awesome unfortunately I only tried the chips, handcut goodness!! A must do place in Luang Prabang

The bar has a great atmosphere by night and then transforms into a really chilled out place during the day. Had lunch there and would highly recommend the burger.

If you visit Luang Prabang without a trip to Utopia then you've seriously missed out on a treat. Tucked away down a side street and an alley way, this place can give you some absolutely spectacular views while you enjoy their wide range of drinks and food.
We visited as part of a large group and was seated closest to the river, and to watch the sunset from there was just an experience in its self.
The food is also quite great, I tried the Penne Carbonara & the only thing I found lacking was how much I received! I could have eaten a pot full of that dish!
My only reason for the 4-star rather than a 5-star was the time it took for the guys to work out bills & giving change. With 30+ people in our group it's understandable that there'll be some delay, I just think with the right kind of approach this could have been a little faster.

Aside from this, an amazing place to stay & eat! Will definitely be back the next time I'm visiting Luang Prabang :)

As the tag line suggests, 'Zen by day, Groovy by Night', this place truly lives up to it. Finding it initially took a little while as it is nestled in between a bunch of restaurants/houses, right beside the Mekong River. However, everyone knows where it is.

If you like chilling out to some Bob Marley music while drinking a fresh coconut and laying down on some mats, this place is for you. That happens during the day!

By night, they light it up with candles and the place is hoping with the latest top 40 music.

Did we mention the yoga??? Most morning (7:30 - 8:30am) and on some evenings (5-6:30pm) (double check the times as they often change), the place uses its sun deck for yoga (with a wonderful instructor). Talk about a scenic view and an amazing way to get a great stretch in! Definitely a must as well!

Few places that are so well hyped and known live up to their expectations but this place probably goes above it! We didn't eat here but they do offer and entire menu of food and based on the amount of people dining there we presume that too would be great!
