Retreat: Amantaka
Laos > Luang Prabang


The grateful French-colonial buildings, which now house Amantaka, have a rich history: they were once the old provincial hospital of Luang Prabang. Although no documents have been found regarding the original construction of the building, the first phase of construction was complete during the first decade of the 20th century. In 2005, a new hospital was built on the outskirts of the town and Amanresorts took possession of the site with its 15 buildings, nine of which are protected by UNESCO. Careful restoration work was carried out and additional buildings have been constructed in accordance with UNESCO.
