The space

The Hillside Lodge is idyllically nestled in the Lao countryside. A nature retreat yet only 12 km from Luang Prabang, surrounded by protected area with primary forest, and with mountain views.

We are a family run place offering authentic bungalows with a twist of style for only 20 guests. Set amidst a lush tropical garden, it’s a heaven for a variety of beautiful butterflies.

The 9 charming bungalows are spread out on a small hill, with views over the lush tropical garden and the mountains. All rooms are built with locally grown wood and come with bamboo ceilings and polished wooden floors, and are just a few steps away from the swimming pool.

Come and enjoy our small private paradise, discover undisturbed surroundings off the beaten track. Explore ethnic villages, hike to a hidden waterfall, relax at the pool. Enjoy our own organically grown food, and indulge yourself in nature’s beauty.

We offer guided hikes, we have mountain bikes for rent, or you can easily go on a self-guided walk.

Our mission is based on ecologically and socially sustainable principles. We care for our nature and the local communities.

Your host will be Quentin, the French manager who takes care of your needs and wishes together with his enthusiastic Lao team.

Most probably, you will also meet me, Holger (German), and my Lao wife Aloun. We are the owners who made a dream come true. The mission was to create a unique place that we love and embrace, and that we can share with our guests from all over the world.

Thank you very much Aloun & Holger for these beautiful and unforgettable days I spent at the Hillside lodge. The nature is so close, you can feel, see and hear it. The food is absolutely delicious, the staff is so nice and kind and one other reason it was hard for me to leave was Buddy, the dog and best guide I ever had on a day trip, he knows all the nice places around the lodge and he makes sure you don't loose track:) Also I learned a lot about Laos which I very much appreciated. Definitely of these magical places you are looking for in the world!:)

Hillside is about 30 minutes outside Luang Prabang in the middle of the countryside. It's a great place to stay if you enjoy nature and want to get to know a bit more about village life in Lao. Holger arranged for a local guide to take us on a 3.5 hour trek through the jungle to Kuang Si Falls - a great way to visit the waterfall! Hillside is also a good place to stay if you just want to relax, read a book in a hammock and go for a swim in the pool.

Although not quite what we expected, the Hillside property offers a unique opportunity to see the Luang Prabang country-side and visit rural villages. The pool is a nice amenity that is not common amongst other airbnbs in the area. The property is a good option for adventure-seekers looking to explore the nearby trails or wanting to zip-line at the recreational park nearby. Holgar offered a warm welcome and we had a great time hearing about his experiences in SE Asia.

I love this place for its tranquil setting and up on hill with various activities for nature lover. We did 2 treks on the route provided upon arrival. The property is located outside busy town of Luang Prabang around 20-30 min road journey plus the road condition is authentic! To be honest, our first nice was terrific and great deep sleep. The 2nd night we have a guest next door where you can hear they talking since its pretty quiet. Great food, excellent services from Pierre and his service team. Highly recommend for family and nature lovers!

We, Holger and Aloun, as a German-Lao couple know how to focus on authentic Lao lifestyle, while still considering the needs and wishes of our Western guests . The mission was to create unique places that we love and embrace, and that we can share with nature lovers from all over the world.

At Hillside Lodge your host will be Pierre, the French Manager. The three of us - together with our Lao team - make sure that our guests get personal attention, feel at home, and take a memorable experience back home. Our place is about a lifestyle close to nature, away from the city hustle. It’s made of a dream, and the dream came true.

In the heritage house downtown in the city of Luang Prabang we will welcome you and take care of you by ourselves. Residing in the spacious heritage house it is all about experiencing a true and authentic lao life style but also being close to the sightseeing hot spots as well.

Welcome to our to our 'the best out of two worlds'!
