New & Cool @ Mekong Riverview

The Mekong Riverview Hotel in Luang Prabang is currently developing the offsite Palm Tree Health Spa with a swimming pool, and the Viewpoint Organic Garden to grow their own produce. Both projects are well underway, and are scheduled to be up and running in 2018.

Palm Tree Health Spa

The Mekong Riverview team has been hard at work developing the land for the new Palm Tree Health Spa. To reach the spa from the hotel, guests take a two-minute boat ride across the Mekong. An electric cart then takes them the final 400 metres to the spa.

The Palm Tree Health Spa will also be open to outside customers, who purchase a massage. This gives them access to all the facilities, including a salt water pool, Jacuzzi, gym, sauna, table tennis, badminton, and bistro. The spa’s facilities are built to the highest standard, using only top quality materials and furnishings.

The spa plans to launch the unique heated, salt-water pool on 1 October, with a soft-opening leading up to the high-season start. The Jacuzzi and a kid’s pool sit next to the 7-by-15 metre mail pool.

The Viewpoint Organic Garden

The Mekong Riverview is at the dawn of its agricultural journey at the 20,000-sqm Viewpoint Organic Garden. Cultivation has begun, and the land is already producing organic vegetables and growing fruit for the hotel’s restaurants.

The hotel stresses they need patience in nurturing the land, an­­d it takes time for vegetables and fruit trees to grow and flourish. A small team from the Mekong Riverview, who contribute a diverse range of skills, operates the garden and shares their knowledge.

The Viewpoint Organic Garden would consider selling its produce in the future, if its yield is sufficient after full development. Currently, the hotel offers its guests a visit to the organic garden, but it may open to outside customers in the future.
