This hotel is perfectly situated on the River with the mountains in the background - the hotel's photos are true to form and actually understate the beauty of the property. It's very well-situated about two minutes from town, which is just enough to ensure a quiet, relaxing stay. The restaurant on the premises is absolutely delicious and the restaurant staff...

We stayed at the excellent Riverside Boutique Resort for 3 nights. The hotel has a fantastic location on the river with dramatic, beautiful views across to the mountains which can be enjoyed from the pool area at sunset. The rooms are very large and stylish with lots of local textiles and large, comfortable beds. The bar, restaurant and breakfast area...

This hotel is tucked away on the banks of the Nam Song with the misty karsts as a backdrop. The rooms are OK, we had ants and a spotty AC. The pool is great and the staff was excellent. The breakfast was not as good as other hotels in Laos but it was good. Again, there were a lot of...

The view from the balcony was magnificent and there was a general air of tranquility about the place. There was a unobscured view of the limestone hills with a river in the foreground allowing anyone so inclined to drink in the scenery and watch the world go by. The rooms were very clean, well maintained and simply decorated. The bathroom...

Tucked away from the backpacker town madness yet easy to access. Breathtaking view and close proximity to the mountains and river surroundings... So if you want to just ride a bike into the countryside... Never seen so may butterfies in my life than in their beautifully landscaped gardens... So enchanting! Rooms very tasteful and clean and staff were accomodating and...

We stayed here for 3 days and would happily have stayed for another week. The hotel room was lovely, comfortable bed, stunning view over the pool, the river and the mountains behind. The restaurant was very good, lovely breakfast and dinner, good omelette bar, excellent cocktails. The pool was quiet when we stayed. The staff were attentive and very helpful,...

This hotel has got it all: a truly beautiful location with the limestone karsts of Laos smiling reflected in the swimming pool like an exotic mirror. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or courteous. The food in the restaurant was superb, although breakfast could have been a little better. Many different species of butterflies were floating around the poolside...

We stayed here in June 2016 and had a great stay, very nice hotel and despite some reviews on here the food was great, yes it is not cheap but is fair for the quality of food which was clearly the best we had in Vang Vieng. The pool is great, especially considering how hot it can get in VV,...

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.
