After watching the sun set over Mount Phousi from the plush daybeds on your private verandah, you may never want to go inside. Reflecting ponds, lush gardens, and a shimmering infinity pool make the prospect even more difficult. But pond-sized bathtubs built for two and the understated decor of La Résidence's large, airy rooms just may do the trick. This luxurious hotel commands 14 acres on a tranquil hillside one and a half miles east of the historic district, and has drawn the likes of Mick Jagger with its sensual ambience and quite good spa, which offers treatments based on traditional herbal remedies, such as a Hmong steamed-indigo compress.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
"The place has charm." Surrounded by gardens and spread across four two-story buildings, the hotel is "slightly removed from the action—just perfect." Phou Savanh restaurant serves Laotian cuisine, but "it's more authentic at local restaurants." "Large rooms with sitting areas are a wonderful place to have a nightcap." "Mostly Laotian and clearly well trained, staff interact with guests in a friendly manner."
