The Namkhan has been welcoming guests since October 2019 but has been operating as an organic farm since 2016. We attract professionals and volunteers from around the globe, bringing individual skills to the development of the resort and eco farm.
At The Namkhan, people are always at the center of our attention. Connecting people by shared motivations and living up to mutual values is what defines our community. The Namkhan has a unique personality and likes to be approachable, friendly, and worldly-wise. Our vision is to create a sustainable resort, remaining respectful of the environment.
In a country where agriculture is the mainstay of the economy, we believe that it is crucial to promote organic agriculture, providing jobs and healthy food for our employees and guests. With this in mind, The Namkhan has gradually become a small village as most of our employees stay on-site and enjoy the healthy and peaceful ambience. In 2018, we decided to create an ecological accommodation to allow travellers to stay overnight as a way for our guests to connect with nature, which led us to offer glamping with our Explorer tents, made with a Thai Leu Lao Style roof. We have also built bungalows with our carpentry workshop, using local materials and preserving traditional Lao architecture.
We believe that The Namkhan provides a different understanding of hospitality, as our core value is to be as sustainable as possible. We integrate and work with what Laos has to offer, developing, producing, and building the biggest part of the resort with our team. In our efforts to protect the environment, we provide our guests with a refillable water bottle and a bamboo toothbrush. All bathroom amenities are natural and environmentally friendly, a commitment that extends throughout the resort to our housekeeping and laundry services.
The Namkhan is not just a place to stay but a property where knowledge, sharing, and learning is passed on, allowing each person to learn from our different methods.
The property reflects Laos’ serenity, the kindness of its people, and the peacefulness of their lifestyle. It is the perfect place to reconnect with nature and oneself. Luang Prabang is a sacred holy city, home to over 34 temples listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. We invite you to experience meditation, yoga, and other activities at the resort amid nature and surrounded by the Nam Khan River.
The goal was to create a unitary place where we integrate the education, development and experience of each person we welcome.
Our mission is to create inspiring and memorable experiences that offer new perspectives to our guests. We strive to give them space for tranquillity, entertainment, and refuge.
Our property reflects and learns from the needs of our guests everyday. The Namkhan reflects and learns from the needs of our guests every day. Our creativity is focused, our innovations thoughtful and easy to use. Premium quality in all our services sets a reassuringly mature base on which we add beyond the obvious experiences.
Every action is committed with ultimate passion, professional pride, and competence. Our dedicated staff finds fulfillment in creating tangible value for our guests, colleagues, and shareholders. We always ensure that we uphold our responsibility for the social, ecological, and cultural environments in how we operate.
Whether you want to discover the world, or recover from it, we are happy to introduce you to another version of life.
