“Very confortable but missing the local charm”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

Definitely the best swimming pool and view in Town .... But probably the poorest pool service in Town too. Rooms are very confortable and spacious.
Nice breakfast but overall the catering should be improved.

Luang Prabang is very interesting but is jammed pack with tourists in a very small town. This hotel sits on a high hill and could be a respite from the town crowd, however, while trying to be interesting from a design point of view, it is poorly constructed and not very well run. The buffet breakfast is poor although the staff tries to please. By all means do not eat in the restaurant since it is much more expensive than the restaurants in town,some of which are excellent and very reasonable . If this hotel were priced lower then it might be considered good value but at over US$ 200 per day, it is a bit of a rip off.

This hotel will one day become a great hotel. The panoramic pool , amazing huge pool villa rooms with great views and huge bathrooms are all part of the ingredients it needs.
However the lack of communication skills and a limited menu as well as average food quality still need improvement.
Once they get this right we will hear more about this resort. I look forward to returning and seeing if they have taken note. Luang Prabang is a great place and I will definitely be back.

We spent a total of three nights at the Shinta Mani. The hotel is perfectly located, in the outskirts of Luang Prabang’s center and it was instrumental in making our stay a memorable one. We used the hotel’s transfer service and although our flight was delayed an hour the driver was waiting for us with a huge smile on his face, cold water and refreshing towels. The room was large, offering a beautiful view of the surrounding hills, with all the amenities, a great bathtub and a separate rain shower.

The infinity pool was majestic and the view was breathtaking. The breakfast area gave you the option of seating either inside or outside as in the morning the weather was a bit chilly. The breakfast was excellent and the cooked options were brilliant. I just have to mention that their chicken pho was one of the best I had in Lao and Vietnam!!

The hotel shuttle was always on time and their drop off/pick up point very convenient. We also used the hotel’s spa service twice and we were extremely pleased.

But the hotel’s greatest asset besides its spectacular location and its services is its people. The staff was always available to help, always smiling and always catering to our requests and would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for making our stay so wonderful.

I highly recommend the Shinta Mani Hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The charming hideaway of Luang Prabang is one of Indochina’s gems and the showpiece of Laos. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995, the well preserved city is more of a sleepy backwater than a modern metropolis. Wedged into the confluence of the mighty Mekong and lesser Khan river, Luang Prabang's peaceful location sets the pace for the unhurried way of life in the second largest city in Laos. Its grid-like road network makes it virtually impossible to get lost, and the entire town can be covered on foot in a day. ... more   less
