The rooms have been tastefully fitted out to offer the highest degree of comfort and convenience. In some rooms, guests can find towels, complimentary instant coffee, flat televisions, wireless internet access, slippers, free toiletries and a hair dryer. The hotel also has various activities, ensuring guests have plenty to do during their stay.
The prices are reasonable, starting at US$40 per room per night. The hotel also gives discounts to customers who stay for long periods and those travelling in large groups.
The 3.5-star hotel can be easily accessed, as it is about two kilometres from the airport. With its convenient location, the hotel offers easy access to the city’s must-see destinations. It is a four-minute walk to the Traditional Arts and Ethnology Centre, only 200 metres from Dara Market, and not so far from the National Museum, Mount Phousy, Vat Xieng Thong, Vat Hua Xieng, Vat That and the Night Market.
These are the favourite spots in Luang Prabang for visitors, according to independent reviews.
Davita Boutique Hotel is located in Thongchalern village. It comprises six two-storey buildings with 28 guest rooms, a terrace, a garden and a free parking lot. The rooms include single, double and twin-bed rooms, some of which have a balcony.
It also provides amenities such as air conditioning, daily housekeeping, laundry service and free breakfast, which includes à la carte and Asian options.
This writer and his colleagues recently stayed at the hotel for a few nights while reporting on celebrations for Lao New Year, Visit Laos Year and the declaration of Luang Prabang’s conversion from a town to a city.
We found it to be a very nice place for relaxing because of its natural surroundings in the heart of the town centre. The staff are very friendly and always warmly welcome guests. They are also great at offering advice that helps guests plan their day. The rooms are luxurious and clean and the food is very tasty.
Special thanks to the hotel owner for providing us with free accommodation and to the staff for their warm welcome and good service.
The hotel opened last September and has drawn a large number of customers from all walks of life, including popular model Louknum (Thidalat Vongsili), who stayed here during the recent Lao New Year while on a modelling assignment in Luang Prabang.
General Manager Mr Bounkhong Phonesavath said “Our hotel offers cheap and reasonable prices and focuses on cleanliness, convenience, warmth, security and good service. We are especially focused on all this for Visit Laos Year.”
The hotel’s owner, Ms Sisamouth Khattiyalath, said “Although it’s a new hotel, it focuses on ensuring good quality and standard services. It can serve local and international customers and we will try our best to satisfy them.”
She also runs Davita Apartments in Phonkheng village, Xaysettha district, Vientiane, with 31 rooms available at reasonable prices starting from 250,000 kip a night. Customers can also opt for a monthly or yearly package.
