Should you wish to watch the world slow down in transporting surroundings, the new Rosewood Luang Prabang ought to be on your shortlist. The recently opened property is nestled in a lush jungle of Laos, the former French colony that is one of Southeast Asia’s most captivating destinations. Blending French-Lao architecture and contemporary style, it features 23 riverside villas and glamorous hilltop tents decorated by designer Bill Bensley in romantic colonial style—think rich rosewood finishes, colorful local textiles, and plush silk daybeds. Guests can enjoy the wondrous flora and fauna, explore the nearby UNESCO-protected old town of Luang Prabang, witness saffron-robed monks collecting alms, or simply sit back with a French coffee and lose themselves in reverie. rosewoodhotels.com
