Welcome to Zen Namkhan Boutique Resort
Nestled in the countryside just 13 km (20 minutes) from Luang Prabang (declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1995) this intimate resort is a fusion of Zen and Epicurean philosophies: Zen for the search of tranquility, Epicurean for the pleasure of the senses, all in a natural Lao setting.
The Resort opened in 2009 and offers a range of activities for those who enjoy nature and the natural world as well as relaxation in a stylish retreat. With its jungle surroundings, Zen Namkhan Boutique Resort is a tranquil haven of calm and quiet, with birdsong, the “put-put” of long-tails on the Namkham river, and elephant-trumpeting, the only sonic backdrops.
This ecotourism resort is for guests who want to experience the sounds, sights, scents and experiences of a truly Lao setting. We offer our guests the opportunity to have an authentic Lao experience without sacrificing comfort.
Zen Namkhan Boutique Resort subscribes to the highest principles of eco-tourism. Enjoy our unique ecological chlorine-free pool. This ecological pool is one of the first in South East Asia. We also feature a Lao herbal sauna room next to our swimming pool. Kayaking on the Nam Khan river and self-guided trekking are also part of the Zen Namkhan experience.
