Shrouded in a mystical air and layered with years of ancient history, Laos will transport you back in time to gold gilded temples, Buddhist ceremonies and quaint fishing villages. Laced with post-colonial European charm, Laos boasts an atmosphere of wealth and tradition whilst being surround-ed by untouched paradise. Your journey will take you through the ‘Million Elephant’ Kingdom, it will immerse you in sacred ceremonies such as the Tak Bat and lead you on a secret river cruise to rural villages with Ramayana dancing and magical folk tales. With everything from cascading waterfalls, jungle hiking, Na Song River kayaking and frozen cave exploring, Laos offers you both peace and excitement in equal measures. Each hotel adds to this lacing of peace and excitement; whether wandering through the secret gardens of the Rosewood Hotel or whipping across the island of Done Daeng on a bike, the marriage of harmony and thrill is ever prevalent.

  • Explore architecture where ancient Chinese tradition meets European colonial influence in Luang Prabang
  • Embark on a sunset cruise with a home cooked Laotian feast and cocktails as you watch Ramayana dancers and listen to folk tales told by the local people
  • Watch the Tak Bat ritual in wonder as a sea of saffron-robed monks parade the streets collecting offerings of food
  • Feel the refreshing spray of the Kuang Sii Waterfalls that cascade into turquoise pools of fresh water
  • Be amazed by the animal kingdom as you flitter around the butterfly park and make a visit to the bear rescue centre
  • Visit multiple fishing villages by private boat charter and be immersed in rural life throughout your trip to Laos
  • Step into Tham Chang and study the fascinating limestone formations and medicinal icy springs in the frozen caves
  • Visit the oldest temple in Laos, Wat Si Saket, which is lined with over 6,000 Buddhist images and adorned with fres-coes
