A bit out of town, but transfer regularly in morning and evening. And walking distance to town 20 min. Very private and protected well from the mozzies. Magnificent breakfast every day, served on your balcony, would highly recommend this place, reasonably costed and just gorgeous view!

We stayed in Thongbay for 5 nights and throughly enjoyed it. The guesthouse and grounds are well kept, clean and cool. The location of the property is a little far from the centre of town, but the free shuttle bus and bikes are nice additions to combat this. The breakfast is the best we have had in SE Asia. The...

I really enjoyed my stay here for three nights. I booked a river view bungalow, which was worth the extra cost. The breakfast is big and it's nice to have it sitting on the terrace of your bungalow. The garden is nicely kept. The staff is obviously well trained and everybody is friendly. The location is slightly removed, about 2...

The guesthouse is fantastic. The property is charming - just along the Mekong River with lush green gardens. The staff is warm and kind, the food delicious (we had dinner here one night and breakfast every morning). It was so nice having breakfast delivered to the room each morning (french bread, homemade yogurt, muesli, fresh fruit, eggs, etc.). Also, the...

This place really is as beautiful as the pictures show. It feels quite private, but is just a quick bike ride or motorbike or tuktuk ride away. They offer all the amenities - breakfast made to order and served on your balcony each day at your requested time, they arranged for an in-room massage, and even had motorbikes delivered to...

Thongbay is a lovely peaceful retreat backing onto the river, where you can sit for hours in the evening watching the river life, such as the Monks running down the embankment on the other side every afternoon for a swim. The Thongbay staff are lovely, very helpful and make the best breaky ever, delivered straight to your private balcony every...

I was so glad I paid the extra for a river view. It was so nice to wake up every morning to the view and be served breakfast on my own private terrace. There is a free shuttle service to take you the 1.5 km into town (it is a bit hot for walking in the afternoon) and also a...
