Beautiful grounds, lovely and spacious rooms with everything you could want. The views from the grounds of the resort and your own balcony are stunning! Located a short walk from the center of town in a nice local neighborhood. Fun to watch the activities of the bridge and the locals playing in the river. The staff were very attentive and... More

The series was top notch. The rooms and the beds were amazing. The food was even more amazing. The pool was perfect! Over all the exceptional guest service is what will always stand out for us. This will always rank in our top places we have stayed around the world. LOVED this place.

This hotel is all about the spectacular view of the Nam Song river in the back drop of misty limestone mountains of Vang Vieng that it allows the guest to freely enjoy. Hotel is designed to maximize the opportunities to enjoy the view. Get a "room with a view" (delux or superior) and you will be entertained by the beauty... More

We stayed here for only one night. The hotel has a non descript entrance, but it is nice enough once you get inside. The room was a standard size, the only negative being that the weather was super hot and the air conditioning couldn't keep up. The hotel warned guests in a letter that several other areas in Vang Vieng... More

After staying one night in Vang Vieng in a different terrible hotel, we looked for the nicest place and this was definitely it. Amazing view, beautiful grounds and pool, great restaurant for breakfast (complimentary), lunch, and dinner. Plus pool side service. We enjoyed exploring the area, hiking, etc. but really enjoyed ending the day at this awesome pool. All staff... More
