5-Star X-Factors

After a day exploring the historic sites, Amantaka is a very peaceful and pampering retreat


In the heart of Laos’ Luang Prabang lies a luxury retreat that awakens your senses; Amantaka pays homage to its famed spiritual setting with five-star flair. Situated in a garden estate on the peninsula that forms Luang Prabang's UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers meet, Amantaka is within walking distance of Buddhist temples, riverside cafes and night markets.

Luang Prabang is beloved for its historic temples, including the 16th-century gilded Wat Xieng Thong, and the important Wat Mai, while the rugged Pak Ou caves are also within easy reach. To appreciate the natural verdant splendour of Laos, cruise along the Mekong river and watch river life reveal itself as the morning mists lift, or visit mesmerising waterfalls and swim with elephants. All these excursions and more can be organised by Amantaka.

Supremely luxurious

Supremely luxurious suites exude colonial charm with their verandas and courtyards, offering private outside living areas complete with loungers, while Pool Suites offer stunning private pools. Step inside and you know you are in an Aman, because of the generous sense of space a calm design; high wooden ceilings and four-poster king-size beds create a serenely peaceful sanctuary. Some suites feature wrap around verandas for a truly colonial feel.

As you would expect from Aman, the spa offers unique chemical-free treatments, pampering and massages to revive you after all the exploring, incorporating local techniques alongside classic Aman treatments. There are four spa suites, a steam room, sauna and hot and cold plunge pools.


Laos offers an enticing combination of French colonial and Laotian influences, from its architecture to its culture and, of course its cuisine. Where else could you find street vendors selling fresh Parisian croissants laid out alongside noodle soup and fried Chinese doughnuts? At Amantaka this Asian-fusion theme makes the most of the freshest local ingredients and showcases small dishes that combine to create traditional Laotian meals, designed for sharing. You can dine at the Pool Terrace or the Dining Room or enjoy a traditional Lao barbeque whilst watching traditional dancers perform.

An Indochina adventure

Luang Prabang is an enticing destination which is easy to fall in love with and, if you are looking to combine exploring with supreme luxury, Amantaka is the place to stay. But if you are curious about wider Indochina, why not combine a stay in Luang Prabang with in a journey combining Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam? Our travel advisers can suggest various itineraries, also including Bangkok as your 'bookend'.
