Luxury Travel Laos: Listed as THE destination for 2008 by The New York Times, the city of Luang Prabang has enjoyed an unprecedented amount of attention from travellers to Indochina. Luxury travel to Laos has long been predicated on the surprising number of luxury hotels in the small, relatively untouched town of Luang Prabang
A quiet, small town populated by numerous wats and a surprising number of chic, luxury hotels, Luang Prabang, referred to in turns as ‘The Jewel of Indochina’, has, amongst its attractions, abundant eco-tourism opportunities, a glimpse as to the lives of the people of Indochina- all amidst the backdrop of upscale hotels, stores and eateries.
Luxury tourists frequently congregate around the small town of Luang Prabang, with its multi incarnations of luxury hotels, the latest on the list being the Amantaka by the luxury Aman Resorts chain.
Urbane Nomads tailors luxury itineraries around Laos that could include spa treatments drawn from ancient practices of Hmong Shamans or treatments facilitating massage techniques carefully cultivated in the monasteries of Laos and once administered exclusively to royals or a dinner in a garden lit by hundreds of candles to a more adventurous stay in a tree house where you get to indulge the inner child in you by ziplining through pristine Laotian jungles straight into your treehouse (and then spend the morning waiting for the sounds of that elusive gibbon) and trekking in the jungles after. Combining Luang Prabang with the lesser-known parts of Laos, Urbane Nomads offers private luxury tours of Laos and the rest of Indochina.
With Luang Prabang (and Laos) now featuring on the radar of the luxury traveler, increasingly varied luxury travel solutions are becoming available. The new Aman outpost signaling the herald of luxury travel, luxury cruises and new luxury boutique hotels all provide for sophisticated choice for the luxury traveler.
