With its tranquil air, charming setting and rich Buddhist heritage, the UNESCO-protected town of Luang Prabang is the ideal destination for taking time out to focus on physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Renowned yoga teacher Cora Wen will be in residence at Amantaka for five nights this November/December, offering twice-daily Iyengar Yoga, breathwork and meditation sessions, as well as insight into the philosophy of Buddhism.
Set on a large garden estate, Amantaka is housed in graceful French colonial buildings, just minutes from the banks of the Mekong and Nam Khan Rivers and the town’s atmospheric night market. The resort offers an Aman Spa, gym and yoga studio, as well as a library, boutique and art gallery. Meals can be enjoyed in the Dining Room, the Pool Terrace which overlooks the main swimming pool, or in the comfort of guests’ suites.
Those staying over the five-night period will also enjoy three complimentary cultural activities including:
• a cruise down the Nam Khan River.
• an excursion around Luang Prabang’s temples with a private guide.
• a traditional Laotian Baci ceremony conducted by Nith, a descendant of the royal family.
