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...

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. We were there for New Year and the day before and after, and whilst there was definitely...

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...

Riverside Boutique Resort is a posh oasis in Vang Vieng. No other accommodations match its comfort and luxury. I was very happy that we booked here for the New Year's Holiday. The rooms are nicely decorated with a connection to Laos handicraft. Despite being fully booked we were always able to find loungers around the lovely pool. The spa and...

This is one of the best hotels in an ugly town amidst a beautiful scenery. The hotel has a very nice view and nice rooms. They charge rather high prices for a stay. So you would expect things like: a warm welcome, a professional reception staff that speaks some english and that can help you around with booking excursions and...

(unfortunately) We only spent one night at the Riverside Boutique Hotel. This lovely hotel offers very spacious and nicely decorated rooms with a very strong WiFI. The breakfast buffet was also very delicious. Can also recommend the hotel owned restaurant that offers excellent local food. Yet, the best part is the pool that offers stunning views of the surrounding landscapes....

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. This was a beautiful secluded property with stunning river views. Beautiful grounds and pool. Service was exemplary. The minute you sat down at the pool an attendant came over with ice water. Light food and bar snacks were also available at the pool. The views from the outside portion of the restaurant were truly outstanding...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riverside Boutique Resort is a luxury property ideally located on the bank of the Nam Song River, with spectacular views over the towering limestone stacks of Vang Vieng, Laos. 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. Prominent artists and artisans have contributed their talent to help create a unique and authentic atmosphere that allows guests to fully appreciate the charm of Lao hospitality. 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. What makes the Riverside Boutique Resort truly special is this combination of culture, tradition and nature - and this stunning backdrop of mighty karst mountains, just a short drive away from Vientiane. ... more   less
