The Overview

Updated on August 29, 2014

Perched on Phou Vao, the Hill of Kites, and ringed by 3.5 hectares of its own lush greenery, La Résidence prides itself on being a quiet sanctuary. The style is refined, understated and in sync with Luang Prabang, the onetime royal capital and UNESCO World Heritage Site. From the infinity pool fronting the main building is a view to kill for: over a canopy of coconut palms rises the golden-spired shrine atop Phou Si backed by a range of mountains. When the hilltop temple's electrical system gave out, the hotel footed the bill for a replacement so diners could savor the shrine's twinkling lights after sunset.
