location & map
Luang Prabang is the former royal capital of Laos, an enchanting town that is small enough to explore on foot. Boasting a seductive pace of life from a bygone era, the town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995 in order to protect its host of precious temples, the former Royal Palace and the many classic French/Lao architectural masterpieces in town – some quaint, some grand. The town is surrounded by extraordinary natural beauty including spectacular waterfalls, sheer amber-coloured cliffs and ancient cave complexes.
Amantaka is little more than a ten-minute drive from Luang Prabang International Airport which is serviced by scheduled flights from the primary international gateways of Bangkok, Hanoi, Siem Reap, Chiang Mai and Vientiane, the capital of Laos. Domestic flying time between Vientiane and Luang Prabang is 40 minutes. Complimentary airport transfers are provided to and from the resort.
