Luang Prabang is stunning and this boutique hotel offers the perfect base to enjoy it. We stayed four nights in late October immediately after arriving in the region. The hotel collected us from the airport (10 minutes away maximum) and offered us a great room - very large! The breakfast was perfect. Light and well prepared. The pool offers a...

Luang Prabang offers variety of accomodations - ranging from Aman resort to number student, backpacker hostels. We checked into Apsare Rive Droite, a cosy, clean and very convenient boutique hotel with simple, yet sophisticated services. Staff was very attentive and friendly (as everyone in Luang Prabang). Hotel is located accross the river from main downtown street but they provide a...

A very beautiful hotel with exceptional staff. The hotel manager has exceptional customer service and consistently went above and beyond for us during our stay. Though not located on the 'main' side of the river, the hotel offers a complimentary boat across (approximately 5 minutes). The rooms are large, with beautiful patios overlooking the river.

I don't usually write reviews but have stayed in hotels al over the world and this is first time I feel promoted to write. We had an amazing stay at Apsara Rive Droit. We deliberately chose it because it was over the other side of the river as we wanted to be somewhere peaceful and away from tourist madness. It...

Wonderful hotel. The manager was so friendly and professional. The rooms are big and clean, and the view of the river is great. Fantastic place. It is easy to take a boat across the river to the city center. Everything is within walking distance.

Myself and my partner travel to Luang Prabang from Perth twice a year to indulge in our most beloved town in the world. Never in our 6 years of travelling there have we stayed in such a beautiful and utterly relaxing hotel. The apsara rive droite is a homely and tastefully decorated haven run by a humble and professional team...

Very sweet local staff who try very hard to make things comfortable. However this is not luxury and is really only worth staying at for a night to see Luang Prabang and move on. Wi fi is woeful and the boat journey across the river for dinner became tedious. Air con was loud and the hotel needs upgrading overall especially...

We stayed two weeks. One week at the Aspara and one week at the Aspara Rive Droite. The Rive Droite was excellent. Very friendly and attentive staff. Spacious rooms. Understated style. Beautiful swimming pool. Access to the other side of the river was exceptionally easy and available around the clock. The food at the hotel was delicious. A bike ride...

Be warned, this is not a hotel - they do not offer dinner, only breakfast. We chose to book here as we thought we were booking into a hotel Remember you are on the "wrong" side of the river from Luang Prabang, so apart from 2 local restaurants (which the management does not particularly recommend,) you have to cross to...

The place has the charm of old times, and still offers modern amenities, large rooms decorated with style, and just 1 minute from the centre with the private boat across the river. Good wifi. Staff is so helpful and friendly. Excellent cooked breakfast. And a swimming pool to relax or to cool down after a hot day of visits. You...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Glamorous rooms, all with their own veranda or terrace. Connected to the town centre by our own boat, the Apsarian Queen, it’s easy to get right into the heart of town. You can spend the morning going to the temples, shopping or just exploring the side lanes and an afternoon in luxurious idleness by the pool. We also have bicycles and our own tuk-tuk available for guests' use. ... more   less
