More about Lao Spirit Resort Luang Prabang

Accomodation outside Luang Prabang

by ytanay about Elephant Lodge

Fantastic place! I'm not sure if you can book a room directly with them because my stay was part of a package with activities. They don;t seem to have their own website.
They share the same compoung as these bungalows called Lao Spirit Resort so perhaps they're owned by the same company. If so, you can contact them here Lovely mountain and river views. Splendid rooms!

Best hide away - living with Elephants

by marakusch about "Elephant Lodge" and "Lao Spirit Resort"

Since living in Luang Prabang I work with tourism and have a big overview and what is good and what not...many people report to me. So here is one superb idea:

Recommanded because close to town, but out in nature, landscapes, superb bungalows and appartments, small and great for people who like to hide or good for families. NO internet, NO TV, No AC...just natural - great!
Restaurant with international menu, and great opportunities for adventure tours and activities in nature...

So I go there every week...probably the best I can do while living here in Luang Prabang. Questions, ask me! The Elephant Lodge and the Resort is just about 15 km out of town offering more than accommodation. It is a philosophy and a place for people who like either of these things: great nature, jungles, waterfall, Elephants in front of your bungalow, trekking, kayaking...and all just in front of you.

Maximum size Bungalows with bathtub and glass front, open air shower and a mountain view restaurant add up to be the nicest place for a few days out. But it is still close enough to visit Luang Prabang.

Rough and Tumble my way through (1)

by xuessium

Well, not exactly roughing and tumbling, but folks who loves the outdoors, fret not. In Luang Prabang, you can do a variety of activities such as hiking, kayaking, river long as you're up to it!

There are a number of tour agencies running such day tour packages. It could be for a single day or for multi-days. Let your enthusiasm and wallet decide. Shop around for the package that most suited you. I went along with Tiger Trail for an elephant sanctuary visit cum ride with a 4 hours guided hike to Tad Se Waterfall (about US$30+ per pax)

It was an early picked up at about 8.30am and soon I was on the way to the Lao Spirit Resort & Elephant Lodge in a Tuk Tuk, about 15km outside of town. Crossing a river to the Elephant Camp, after a lovely impromptu invited bite at the mahout's house, we embarked on an 1 hour Elephant ride. Save for a moment when my elephant collided with another and swerved 90 degree violently away in anger (think theme park rides), it was pretty much a boring affair after the initial 10 minutes as the elephants waded across streams and trudged through mudpaths along jungle paths under a very searing sun. Oh well, all for the sake of being able to say that I had rode an elephant.

Lunch was back at the Lodge (already paid for) and after a few minutes of rest, we were crossing the river again to embark on the hike towards Tad Se. Juggling bottles of waters well prepared by our nimble foot guide, me & my mate trekked through jungle trails, crossed rudimentary bridges over streams and meandered through rustic and idylic Khmu villages. I hardly felt the 4 hours as the sceneries were breathtaking. I tried to absorb everything in, while watching where and what I was stepping in. We attracted a fair bit of interest in the villages. Unlike the others we had visited, these were REAL villages. We did not see half a souvenir stall. Tiger Trail owns some huts in one of the villages and folks doing an overnighter would stay in these rudimentary lodgings.
