Hotel Ship/Cruise Ship in Luang Prabang

Mekong Pearl

The boutique river vessel Mekong Pearl is not simply a ship, it’s also a cozy hotel—the only one of its kind in Laos. Made of premium teakwood its two decks offer all the amenities of a hotel.

This hotel ship’s 15 spacious cabins come in four categories, all of them stylishly decorated and complete with air conditioning, safe and private shower/WC. The twin beds can be joined together to form a double bed.

The Mekong Pearl features a lounge, a superb sundeck and a restaurant serving breakfast from 7 to 10 am. Wi-Fi on board is free of charge for all guests. The friendly crew will happily assist you with bookings/reservations in Luang Prabang. The language on board is English.

The Mekong Pearl is ideally located right by the famous Wat Xieng Thong temple in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Luang Prabang. All sights of this charming city can be explored by foot from here, including the Royal Palace, the National Museum, Phou Si mountain and Wat Mai temple. Cabins with river view boast marvelous panoramas of picturesque Mekong landscapes.

Every Friday the ship goes on a 1-hour sunset cruise on the Mekong river, where guests enjoy finger food and sundowners. Upon request, this cruise is also open for non-residents.
