Excellent location (very romantic scenery away from the noise of the street), superb room with breathtaking view on the mountains and large swimming pool. I see a lot of comments on the restaurant but this is really very good with excellent local dishes and very friendly service. I'm looking forward to the breakfast...

The pool of the hotel is facing the mountains and the river. Having a drink at the pool was very relaxing. The food of the hotel is nice. Room and the balcony is big. Just love chilling at the balcony.

Very good hotel but you should provide correct information about the transportion to vientien. We asked again and again for a vip bus but you sent us by very uncomfortable and a bad mini van operator :( we had a terrible and dangerous 4 hours journey to vientien. Wifi so slow in the morning you can't use it it's useless.

Stekype, Guest Relations Manager at Riverside Boutique Resort, responded to this review

Dear guest, thank you for your kind comment about our resort. We are sorry that your journey back to Vientiane was not as comfortable as you had hopped. Unfortunately, bus companies in Laos are not very reliable and often change vehicles at the last minute without notice and without informing passengers. We buy bus tickets for our guests in order...

My family stayed at the resort on June 28th based on many great reviews. I have many positive comments about this place. The minute we arrived the kids immediately enjoyed the nice pool while we waited for our room to be ready. We also were served cold glasses of water at the pool while we eat lunch that we brought...

Clean spacious rooms , super location,good food and nice friendly helpful staff.fair sized pool. But the view is out of this world even if you only stay one night and wake up to the river and Moutain view it will not disappoint. (Don't use the massarge place (not hotel owned) just outside up the hill on the right.

...but totally worth it. The room was clean with very comfortable beds. The AC was quiet. Nice view over the river and the mountains from our balcony. The pool area is fantastic. The breakfast buffet was delicious (fresh croissants) with enough choice. The only thing we didn't like was the dirt road leading to the hotel.

This resort was absolutely fantastic. The scenery was stunning and watching the sunset on our deck was wonderful. Our package included a wonderful boat trip along the Mekong as well as a degustation dinner. The restaurant was great and breakfast was very good.

We spent a wonderful 4 night stay at the Riverside Boutique Resort. The buildings were elegant and well integrated in the landscape and the rooms tastefully arranged. The floor of our unit was covered with large terra cotta tiles and lit by floor to ceiling windows opening on a good-size balcony. Bed runner, pillows and curtains were all handmade and...

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.
