Please remember this is a very small town in a poor country. TripAdvisor lists only 19 hotels, hostels and backpacker joints. This is probably the best accommodation in Vang Vieng. And it really is very nice. It is on the river with nice views of the mountains etc. The rooms, service etc are all first class. There's s a nice...

First visit and this hotel exceeded expectations. Beautiful location on river overlooking the wondrous limestone karsts of the Vang Vieng area. Lovely rooms with large balconies to enjoy the view. Excellent service throughout hotel and a special thanks to Kit at the dining room for his kindness and graciousness each evening. We also arranged transport to Vientiane through the hotel...

It is difficult to write a review of a hotel and ignore what goes on outside. So inside this lovely hotel I cannot fault the lovely staff, gardens , pool, rooms or food. Delicious breakfast and dinners and everyone really cares for their guests. Now the BUT sadly Vang Vieng is and arguably has already been commercialised as a Chinese...

Dear guest, thank you for your kind comments about our hotel. It is true that more and more Asian tourists are visiting South-East Asia. At Riverside Boutique Resort, about half of our customers are coming from Europe, America and Australia, and half from Asia (mostly South Korea but also Laos, Thailand and China). However, because the high season is not...

The centre of Vang Vieng is dominated by backpackers (and Koreans) but this is definitely not a backpacker hotel. Everything was high quality from the bedrooms to the public rooms, the pool, the spa and the food. As an example, glasses of iced water were brought as soon as you sat down by the pool. The staff spoke good English...

The hotel itself is well maintained and looks upto scratch. Main guests are noisy Koreans . Good option for those with a taste for finer things who find themselves in vang v. Good pool and attentive restaurant team. Disappointing is the lack of coordination between staff . Rooms not cleaned unless requested , staff getting paperwork mixed up or lost...

Dear guest, we are very sorry Riverside Boutique Resort did not meet your expectations this time. From the description of the issues you faced, the service you received did not meet our own standards. We will of course take your feedback into account to review what went wrong and to address the problems through additional staff training. Thank you for...

So if you've read the articles about Vang Vieng's high frequency of tourist injuries and deaths, this review may raise a smile. Alas, we could have died at this hotel. An hour later and I would have been fast asleep. The building we were in caught fire. There are no smoke alarms of any sort. Thankfully we noticed the burning...

Dear Sir, we apologize for the short-circuit that occurred in your room during your stay. We do have a comprehensive fire-fighting system and smoke alarms, but being in your room when the incident occured, you were able to alert our staff before any smoke could reach the smoke detector. Regarding the water issue, we do offer complimentary drinking water in...

Wonderful rooms. Great buffet breakfast. Short walk to town but far enough away to feel isolated. Lovely views across the river to the mountains. Lovely swimming pool. Helpful and professional staff. Will stay here again

Stayed in the Tai Dewan suite. What a room. Well appointed with a balcony that went on for ever. Great views. Brilliantly appointed room and suite. The whole resort is wonderful. There are great places to stay in vang vieng and the views are also spectacular especially from the balcony. Book the breakfast also.

We had a suite (lucky us) overlooking the river one one side and the pool and ground's the other. The hotel is very well appointed, it provides everything its says it does with aplomb, and the food whilst not great is not bad.

The best feature of the resort is its nice view of the river and mountain. The garden is well kept and the swimming pool seems to be well maintained though the color of the water is not really inviting ( green tiles?). The rooms we got are clean and have all the basic amenities. One comment , however, is that...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

It offers 34 rooms distributed around a central swimming pool, as well as a spa, a bar, a restaurant and a large conference room. With a beautiful design that blends local traditions, ethnic arts and French colonial architecture, the Resort celebrates the exceptional diversity of Laos.

The rooms, in particular, feature original decors inspired by eight ethnic groups: the Akha, Hmong, Katu, Lanten, Lao Lum, Tai Daeng, Tai Lue and Yao.
