“Multi-Award Winning Stay & Service!” at Riverside Boutique Resort, Vang Vieng – Laos

October is a crowded tourist month in Vang Vieng, Laos, and as a result our rooms were not ready yet when we tried to check-in at the Riverside. However, it was not a problem for us. We were escorted to the restaurant and offered drinks and snacks while we waited. And the spectacular natural scenery made the wait go by quickly.

22281630_10213865340418159_5452061098788757168_nThe Riverside’s location is ideal because, as its name suggests, it’s on the banks of the Nam Song River with a stunning view of the nearby limestone mountains framing the swimming pool. The city center is just a ten-minute walk away, with a small bamboo bridge next to the hotel leading to a quiet village to the west.


Ideally located on the bank of the Nam Song River, multi-award winning Riverside Boutique Resort is a luxury hotel with charm and character. It is laid out around one of the most inviting swimming pools to be found in Laos, and offers stunning views of the surrounding lush landscapes and forest-clad limestone mountains.

We stayed for two nights in a comfortable room with a stylish design that included exotic rattan wood furniture that reflects the traditions of the eight ethnic groups of Laos and the original arts and crafts of local artists and craftsmen.22228134_10213851819080134_6666403222790401733_n

Thirty-four rooms with large balconies are located within the tranquil gardens. 

During our stay, it continued to rain, but we gladly spent a lot of time in the hotel. After our rubber tubing trip on the river, we enjoyed room-service and swam in the unique and beautiful pool.22228342_10213865342578213_3191487170558804581_n

I loved the breakfast at the du Crabe d’Or restaurant with its croissants and steamed fish wrapped in banana leaf. Yummy!22279841_10213865340978173_4230384927157408504_n

In the romantic setting of “Restaurant du Crabe d’Or,” discover authentic Lao dishes, prepared with fresh local ingredients, or enjoy a more traditional Asian and French cuisine.

The service from the hotel staff was so attentive. They were all friendly and professional and made us feel right at home. Not surprisingly, the Riverside has won several awards and holds the first position on TripAdvisor. Really a great stay with all that great service!22196329_10213851819120135_7657712926829941190_n

In addition to celebrating the cultural and natural diversity of Laos, the Resort is an invitation to relaxation and serenity that will never fail to charm those looking for peace and romance.
