Sanctuary stay
Really enjoyed my stay at the Sanctuary hotel. Centrally located and easy walking distance to most of the quarter restaurants and downtown sites. The Viewpt is a little more of a walk. Room was smallish but liked the balcony which was nice for hanging out. Pool area was clean and enjoyable. Breakfast and staff response was outstanding. They fumigate your room in the evenings from what i can tell (ultimately your choice but you need to tell them if you dont want it)....never had a mosquito prob whatsoever but i could see how you could if you left your balcony doors open for an extra length of time. Price paid for having such beautiful grounds and pond area. Would most definitely stay here again!!

Well worth treating yourself. Great experience.
We originally only planned to stay for 3 nights but extended an additional 3 nights as were so relaxed and enjoyed our stay. The staff, although English not always up to scratch, can't do enough to help and followed up quickly when we had queries. We booked a tour and had a private car and driver from the hotel who looked after us at beautiful waterfalls, bear sanctuary and butterfly farm. We spent several sessions by the pool which is clean and luxurious sun loungers with service from the bar at the ring of a bell... literally! Breakfast, which was included, was a la carte and very tasty. We had a Laotian tasting platter and dinner one evening too, which were high quality but much more expensive than the great food you can get just round the corner in the main area of restaurants and bars. The hotel is a short walk from several temples including the national museum and royal palace. Make sure you walk to the top of Phousi Hill at sunset; breathtaking views. We would definitely stay again and have, in fact, booked at their sister hotel in Pak Beng as part of the 2 day boat tour to the Thai border the hotel helped us book.

The hotel was beautiful. The service was wonderful. Everyone was very helpful and accommodating when booking tours and buses and taxis. The breakfast was amazing. The restaurant staff were wonderful. The grounds of the hotel are classy and beautiful beautiful. The rooms themselves are very clean, large and comfortable. The hotel itself is about four blocks from the night market. Literally a five minute walk to everything. Right around the corner from Utopia. I would recommend this hotel. I would stay here again no questions asked.

Highly recommended base to explore Luang Prabang
Good location slightly out of the busy centre of Luang Prabang. Rooms at the back live up to the name "Sanctuary" surrounding the lotus pond. Recommend an upstairs room for less mosquitos. Rooms very spacious, comfortable, hot water with good water pressure, and firm mattresses with good quality linen. Highly recommended.

Beautiful Hotel & Grounds
Beautiful hotel/grounds. We loved the atmosphere. Very well maintained. Super peaceful/quiet. Great location. Great Breakfast - lots to eat! Made-to-order eggs. Only complaint is that the walls are thin - we heard the people next door having a "good time". The drapes are black-out, so we couldn't sleep in, but most people want to wake early, so not a problem. Wifi was good. Shower was great - quality pressure/temp. The room was clean, they had everything we needed.

Very friendly hotel with great service
Check in is prompt. We opted for the ground floor room due to both of us in the 80s but there were lots mosquitos as soon as we enter the room. The reception very efficiently changed our room to the next level which was very good. They even provided us with the spray. Room is spacious with view of the pond. Location is very convenient. Highly recommended.
