Great pool, great view, amazing restaurant, clean and big rooms with great view. For sure this is the best place in town - worth the extra money. If you're trying to work out where to stay and you aren't feeling like hostels are your thing, you should stay here.

I was thrilled to spoil myself with a splurgy 2 nights at this fabulous hotel! First - the setting is to die for. Enjoy a tasty breakfast with good coffee whilst watching the mystical karst mountains rise up from beyond the river as the sun hits them. The food at the Crabe D'or restaurant was excellent - try the duck... More

Located on the riverside with breathtaking views this is a gorgeous hotel, stylishly designed and maintained superbly. We expereoenced a "feel good" factor the moment we arrived which continued throughout our stay - only one night, not long enough to fully appreciate the beauty around us. Our room was very attractive, large comfortable bed, quality fixtures, fittings and linen, furnished... More

Located a bit distance to center, but here are the views worth visiting. Well maintained though a bit worn, but friendly and concerned staff made our day. All rooms are facing to the river and the pool, so there is not much of privacy on the balcony and after dark curtains must be kept shut. Rooms are spacious with high... More

My girlfriend and me visited this resort to spoil ourselves with the spa facilities and restaurant - we weren't dissapointed! We both went for a massage in the spa - the staff were very friendly and professional. We left the spa feeling very refreshed and ready for dinner!

Because of the price we paid per night, in line with a few niggles we had, I haven't given it 5 stars. The grounds, pool, lanterns in the trees, setting by the river and restaurant area were all top quality. Breakfast was also good quality, and I remember when researching accommodation, reading that there was no fresh juice and croissants... More

We had a really good time at the Riverside Resort. Very good food and wonderful massage at the spa. Really nice and large rooms. Overall quite nice and a very good price quality ratio. It is nice to stop on the way to or from Louang Prabang and enjoy the wonderful scenery vang vieng can offer.

The views of the Vang Vieng countryside are worth the cost alone, but on top of that the rooms are nice and clean. The pool is lovely and the breakfast good. Yes it is more expensive than other hotels, but it would be hard to compare them. The hotel is slightly out of town, but only a 10min walk. If... More

It offers 34 rooms distributed around a central swimming pool, as well as a spa, a bar, a restaurant and a large conference room.

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.
