Glamping a Hit in Luang Prabang


Glamorous camping, or “Glamping”, is taking off in Luang Prabang, with Asian Trails Laos now offering a 3-night package in one of Rosewood Luang Prabang’s luxury tents.

The programme gives guests a taste of luxury in tented accommodation hidden away on the hillside, while bringing them closer to nature. The itinerary also explores the UNESCO town’s Buddhist heritage and French colonial architecture.    

CNN recently wrote, “Luang Prabang’s rise to become one of Southeast Asia’s top luxury destinations for those in search of culture and relaxation was inevitable.”

The article noted the Mekong Riverside city’s many cultural attractions and mountain scenery, alongside a large choice of luxury accommodation.

“But that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for one more, particularly if it’s the stunning Rosewood Luang Prabang, which opened its gates just a few months ago.”

The 23-key riverside Rosewood Luang Prabang sits about a 10-minute drive outside of town in a hilltop forest, and was designed by the well-known Bill Bensley.

“The American architect is renowned for taking a concept and stretching it to lengths us laymen would consider simply absurd, executing his vision down to the last beautiful and often whimsical detail. In the case of Rosewood Luang Prabang, Bensley envisioned a property modelled after a Laotian hill station from the turn of the 20th century.”
