Apsara

Kingkitsarat Rd., Luang Prabang, Laos

With its white facade and balustrades and riverside location, this French-style maison would be at home in southern France; instead, it's Luang Prabang's trendiest boutique hotel. The plush restaurant (known for serving the driest martini in town) is worth a visit, even if you're not staying the night. The reasonably priced rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows that face east, so you can catch the sunrise over the nearby mountains. Rooms 1 through 5 on the second floor have the best river or mountain views.

PROS

  • quiet riverside location
  • beautifully furnished rooms
  • rain-style showerheads in some bathrooms

CONS

  • downstairs rooms have no views
  • standard rooms a bit dark
  • often fully booked
