Positioned on a hill overlooking the Mekong River, the year-old BelleRive Boutique Hotel is an ideal base from which to explore Luang Prabang's unique Buddhist and French-colonial influences. The eight light-filled rooms are spread across two buildings—including a former mayor's residence—shaded by tamarind and frangipani trees. All rooms come with river views and four-poster rosewood beds draped with elephant-adorned silk runners and enclosed by sheer white curtains that double as mosquito nets. Best touch: Free bikes are on hand for guests to use to discover the town's temples, monasteries, and cafés.
