“The luxury of nature”

Before pitching up in Laos, Rosewood has never included luxury tents in its portfolio, so the global brand has pulled in the big wigs to make sure its glamping debut is flawless. This luxury tent and villa concept was designed by Bill Bensley, the creative force behind some of the world’s most iconic resorts. From the resort, there’s no other civilization in sight, but a short drive takes you to the quaint UNESCO World Heritage Town of Luang Prabang, whose blend of French colonial – Lao heritage is infused into the resort’s design and culinary offerings.

Best time to visit : November - March

Rosewood Luang Prabang

Nestled in a serene valley surrounded by soaring mountains, the historic town of Luang Prabang has a unique mystique unparalleled in Southeast Asia. Once the capital of the Lan Xang kingdom—the name meant “Land of a Million Elephants”—it later became home to the Laos royal family and one of the most important settlements in French Indochina. With such a rich story, it was recognized by UNESCO in 1995 for its outstanding fusion of Lao and French architecture, and the blending of these two distinct cultures. With exceptional beauty, Luang Prabang remains a hidden treasure of Southeast Asia, featuring authentic Buddhist traditions orange-clad monks continue to collect alms each morning -- and wonderful European charm, a town where you can savorr chocolate croissants with your café au lait.

Wat Mai
Wat Mai
"Located in the heart of Luang Prabang, the town’s largest monastery was built in the late 18th century and features white walls topped by a cascading red-tiled roof with golden spires. An ornate gold-leafed mural adorns the entrance exterior, telling stories of ancient times, while inside you'll discover a large Buddha statue, with a smaller emerald version off to the lefthand side."
Morning Food Market
Morning Food Market
"In the early hours of the morning, a network of small lanes close to Wat Mai are given over to the morning food market, where a cornucopia of produce is sold on tarpaulins laid out on the ground. The freshness – and vibrant colors – of all the fruits and vegetables is incredible, though the squeamish should note that the market does also sell live animals."
Bouang
Bouang
"While there are many excellent restaurants serving Lao and international cuisine, there are not many that meet in the middle. This trendy little eatery downtown has a cool bohemian vibe and creative flair – no doubt due to its two young French owners – and a menu of what they term 'Laos revision' cuisine, such as the flavorful Laos meatballs and fresh mango spring rolls."
Manda de Laos
Manda de Laos
"You won't find a better setting in town than the lotus ponds at this charming outdoor restaurant. Tucked down a quiet side street, the venue is especially romantic at night, with red lanterns casting a soft glow over white tablecloth-covered tables. Order a bottle of wine from their extensive list and enjoy traditional Luang Prabang family recipes ('manda' means mother.)"
Tangor
Tangor
"As part of Indochina for more than 60 years, Luang Prabang was left with a significant French influence, from the colonial architecture to the humble baguette. This tradition is continued at Tangor, where – surrounded by retro decor and 20th century art – you're invited to recline on wicker chairs and enjoy Indochine cuisine such as fish ceviche, duck breast and lemon tart."
L'Elephant
L'Elephant
"Occupying a huge 1960-built corner building at the center of the peninsula, this fine-dining French restaurant is practically an institution. Utilizing organic produce grown in their own gardens, they serve classic French cuisine with local touches -- such as the slow-cooked Mekong fish, fried frog legs and lamb shank with cardamom -- with typical Gallic service and style."
Le Banneton
Le Banneton
"If you're a fan of French patisseries, you'll find yourself in baking heaven at this place at the eastern end of town, with its signature café au lait, pain au chocolate, and fantastic baguette sandwiches. They also have homemade lasagne, a range of pastries and tarts, paninis, pizzas, crepes and salads. Take a break from sightseeing and enjoy a little slice of Paris."
