Muang La Resort provides guests with an incredible opportunity to stay in one of northern Laos’ remote villages in the comfort of this charming hotel.
With its wooden buildings and discreet size, the resort manages to blend in with its surroundings, whilst offering its guests the luxuries of a sauna, massage services, gorgeous fragrant gardens, and ten en-suite rooms decked out in polished wood and jewel-toned fabrics, each with its own terrace; the furniture is all made by local craftsman Oudom Xai.
Right by the lodge, the village’s natural hot spring fills the outdoor plunge pool, in which guests can unwind in this blissfully tranquil environment, while soaking up the water’s therapeutic effects.
Traditional life still prevails up here, and the Muang La has a unique agreement with the village chief, which has allowed it to slot into village life and to have spearheaded several projects, such as the maintenance of the river bank to prevent flooding and the building of a bridge. The resort also employs locals and buys its produce from the village, all of which allows visitors to experience this culture in the most ethical, eco-conscious way possible.
Guests at the Muang La Resort can use this as their base to explore the beautiful, untouched surroundings of the village, with rainforest treks, mountain biking, village visits, and trips to nearby waterfalls. Onsite, there are also Asian cookery classes for those who want to take home a taste of their journey to Laos.
