I stayed here with my husband for 4 nights, we were originally on a bicycle trip but after I had an accident and broke my collar bone we had to change our plans. So we stayed in and around Luang Prabang for 2,5 weeks. After a week in LP we wanted to go to a place a bit more in...

I booked because it was so cheap but didn't realise how far away from Luang it was. Be prepared for a further 40 mins travel once you get to LP. Nice place and staff but very difficult to book tours etc through them. They didn't have anything available through the hotel and you had to go through a separate company,...

A very relaxing place, big rooms. We had a twin rooom and it had two queen size beds - perfect for a family with kids. They have bikes, but no kids bikes nor child seats, no tuk-tuk for rent, but our kids just loved playing there at the pool and on the shore of the river. Free shuttle busses to...

Best hotel we stayed at! We got a great reduction online so we got a room we could never normally have afforded! It was beautiful! Private huge cabin with balcony overlooking the river- really well decorated and clean. The pool is just stunning and the grounds make it perfect for a relaxing getaway! The staff are also all lovely and...

We stayed only one night but wished we had more time here at this beautiful resort on the river. We had a lovely cottage overlooking the river from our deck. The manager, Phonesack went out of his way to make us feel welcome as well as the rest of the staff. We only had lunch and it was excellent and...

After a week in Luang Prabang and almost 2 months travelling in SE Asia we needed some tranquility for a week or so. We stumbled on this fantastic place just 30 minutes outside Luang Prabang, in the middle of nowhere by the river. We took a local tuktuk from the city and it all went fine in the end...but an...

This is a wonderful hotel, in a very remote location (although they organise twice daily transfers into Luang Prabang) with an extremely good restaurant. It was also excellent value for money. We had a terrific stay here. The boat ride to Pak Ou caves was spectacular and while some have said the caves aren't worth seeing we really enjoyed them...we...

When you are first shown to your room you go WOW if you are on the first floor you will also have a fantastic view of the river. The location couldn't be better there is a pool next to the restaurant. This is a great place to unwind for a few days, the hotel has a twice daily mini bus...

I'll start with the positives. The proximity to Park Ou caves and the location right next to the river are the natural attractions of the hotel. The nice infinity pool overlooking the river is another draw. The overall experience is however marred by poor quality of service throughout our 2 nights stay: Firstly, Nam Ou Riverside is located around an...

Stayed over 4 nights in Dec 2015. Nam Ou is an hour from Luang Prabang and we came here with the idea of getting away from it all. We paid USD320 per night for the private villa and expected an oasis. While the resort itself and villa was peaceful with great views of the river, service was extremely patchy and...
