Set on a large garden estate, Amantaka is housed in graceful French colonial buildings in the UNESCO protected town of Luang Prabang. Airy and elegant throughout, the décor and furnishings reflect the town’s French colonial history. Situated just south of Phousi Hill, the resort is within strolling distance of the boutiques, bakeries and restaurants lining the town’s main street. The fabled night market, the picturesque banks of the Mekong River and the former Royal Palace are also nearby.
Visas are required to enter, exit or transit through Laos. Visas on arrival are available at the airport and are payable in US dollars with the price based on nationality and subject to change without notice. Passports must be valid for at least six months before the date of entry.
Laos enjoys a warm, tropical climate year-round. The cooler, drier months of the year are from November to March; however, temperatures rarely drop below 22°C (72°F) during the day. Humidity is highest between May and September, when sunbursts follow tropical downpours and temperatures can climb to 35°C (95°F). However, the average year-round temperature is a pleasant 25°C (77°C).
The official language of Laos is Lao, which is similar to the northeastern dialect of Thai. French is still spoken by many of the older generation, while English is common around commercial centres.
