Chose to stay here as opposed to anywhere on the river or right by the city center and didn't regret it. A short walk to the night market and town, and enjoyed the quiet and reprieve. Rooms were emasculate and loved the courtyard and pond. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We didn't eat there but the restaurant looked nice....

Breakfast was a blast. Really helped me start my morning with a bounce in my steps. Hotel is near market and supermarket....

Sanctuary Hotel is a beautiful little Hotel, Quiet and Charming. The Facilities are excellent and the hotel is Clean and the gardens are lovely and well maintained. The Hotel is just a short walk to the main centre of Luang Prabang where you will find great food and night markets. I would most defiantly return to this Hotel.

Thoroughly enjoyed our several night stay at the Sanctuary Hotel in Luang Prabang. The breakfasts were a great way to start the day, seated next to a small pond or lagoon, filled with flowers and other plants. Food at breakfast was consistently good, particularly the fresh fruit and yogurt, the crepes, homemade preserves and all kinds of egg offerings. The...

The hotel is set amidst a beautiful garden and it truly feels like a Sanctuary. It is close to all the attractions, yet it feels private and special.
