In the heart of the ancient town of Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage site in northern Laos, The Belle Rive is an elegant boutique hotel overlooking the Mekong river. Beautifully restored, this colonial-style complex of three buildings named Tamarind, Mango, and Frangipani, offers 8 rooms and 5 suites. Luxuriate in their tastefully appointed, capacious rooms in muted colors, featuring high ceilings, French windows, rosewood floors and furniture, plush Hmong silk furnishing, and hand-painted wash basins. Fine art photographs and tribal Laos costumes adorning their walls, add to the décor. Families and groups can occupy the larger maisonette-style balcony apartment. After a round of drinks at the lobby bar, observe Laos life pass by from their riverside terrace restaurant across the street. Set on twin levels in a natural palm tree garden, it serves traditional Laos cuisine. Try their sharing platter with deep-fried Mekong seaweed to complement a range of concoctions during your meals. Wake up to hypnotic chimes from Buddhist temples nearby, and explore the town’s lively streets and attractions. Breakfast, bicycles, mini-bars and sunset cruises are provided gratis to guests.
