Rosewood has expanded its portfolio of luxury hotels to Laos with the opening of the Rosewood Luang Prabang, a luxury escape within an idyllic hilltop forest.

 The resort is the first tented villa concept and the second Southeast Asia resort for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts.

The enclave features 23 guestrooms, villas, suites and tented villas surrounding the site’s natural waterfall, only a 10-minute drive from Luang Prabang, the 14th-century capital of ancient Laos and an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

 Located at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers, Luang Prabang is known for its well-preserved French colonial architecture and IndoChinese villas, monk communities and gilded temples, rich historical significance, French and Laotian cuisines, and mesmerizingly serene pace of life.

Bill Bensley and BENSLEY design studio modelled the property on the concept of a Laotian hill station from the turn of the 20th century, in which a grand and gracious home of a French host would be opened to intrepid adventurers and curious travellers from diverse walks of life who managed to make their way to this magical corner of the world.

They variously include their own private swimming pools, oversized balconies, outdoor wooden bathtubs and other features special to each, yet all provide the experience of immersion in a dense tropical forest.
