Amanresorts Opens Amantaka in Luang Prabang

Laobdy

Amanresorts has announced the opening of Amantaka luxury resort in Luang Prabang, the former royal capital of Laos. The 24-suite resort incorporates 15 French-colonial-style buildings that were once part of the city's old provincial hospital.

Amantaka derives its name from the word aman ("peace" in Sanskrit) and taka (from Tipitaka or "the teaching of the Buddha" in Theravada literature). Located just south of Mount Phousi, the resort rests on a peninsula framed by the mighty Mekong and Khan rivers.

The entire city was declared a United Nations World Heritage Site in 1995 in order to protect its precious temples, the former royal palace and classic colonial buildings.

The resort features several dining options including authentic Lao and French-influenced cuisine. Additional facilities include an expansive courtyard, spa, swimming pool, tennis court and a fitness center.

Amantaka is little more than ten minutes from Luang Prabang International Airport which is serviced by scheduled flights from Bangkok (two hours), Hanoi, Siem Reap, Chiang Mai and Vientiane, the capital of Laos. Complimentary airport transfers are provided to and from the resort.
