Maison Dalabua Luang Prabang - YLL007

A charming boutique hotel set around quaint, large lotus ponds and luscious tropical gardens offers some of the best value rooms in town.

This is a is sparkling little gem of a hotel and we make no shame in confessing that Maison Dalabua is one of our favourite boutique bargains in the gorgeous town of Luang Prabang. Set in beautiful gardens with large lotus ponds and a swimming pool - as well as having one of the best restaurants in town, it’s hard to drag yourself away from this peaceful oasis - but make sure you do as there is lots to see in Luang Prabang!

Although the property is located about 10 minutes by foot from the centre of Luang Prabang, tuk tuk's are reasonably priced and readily available and the hotel also offers complimentary bicycle hire. It is also worth noting that no hotels in the ancient town have swimming pools so this is actually one of the better located hotels with a pool.

Colonial flair and Asian touches adorn the guestrooms at Maison Dalabua. All its rooms are spacious, modern and comfortable boasting a warm colour scheme, the choice of double or twin beds and a contemporary bathroom with rain shower and/or bathtub. All rooms have a flat screen cable TV, a minibar, a small safe for valuables and a tea/coffee maker. We love the finishing touches like the hand-made woven art work (made by the owner) that adorn the walls (and are actually available to buy too!)

There are three different rooms to choose from; Classic, Deluxe, Grand Deluxe and the Over-Water Balconies. The Classic Rooms are spacious but don’t have a view, the Deluxe are larger but the Grand Deluxe have the best views with a private terrace with either a pool or pond view (pool views are our favourite). The Bungalows are the largest rooms and have private terraces over the gorgeous lotus-filled pond.

The restaurant Manda de Laos is actually one of the best in Luang Prabang - here you can dine under the stars surrounded by a UNESCO classified lotus pond and enjoy a Laotian Family cuisine from all regions of Laos. The setting is pretty magical and worth visiting even if you are not staying here.

The hotel offers free use of bicycles to its guests which gives you the freedom to visit the town whenever you want, at your own pace. Airport transfers are also available. Friendly and helpful front desk staff are fluent in English and are ready to go above and beyond to help the guests.
