Convenient shuttle boat across the river to the main town. But beware if you have any trouble walking as the walk up and down from the boat is steep. It is not too far getting to town across the closest car bridge but far enough for it to be annoying when you see the town across the river. The hotel... More

I can agree no more with all reviews. The hotel is very beautiful, designed with care and love to the smallest detail, the location and the views superb! Nothing cheap or ugly spoils the view and the unique atmosphere by the river. Small suggestion: such a wonderful hotel, in full harmony with the surrounding environment, should, in my opinion and...

The Apsara Rive Droite was a very cute and charming little hotel. I really liked the decorations and the feel of the resort, it reminded me of Colonial French times. Our room was very big and spacious, a little bit run down in some areas like the doors and the windows, but not a big deal. The bed was also... More

It's beautiful, quiet, romantic, very green, the view on the river and peninsula of Luang Prabang is unique, the small boat trip to get there (crossing the river) is funny, food is great simple but extremely well cook, not over priced as often in luxuary hotel... we're getting close to perfection!

The rooms were beautiful, spacious and clean. The hotel could not be better located - there is a boat to cross the river to get to the old city which was a nice touch. The food was also exquisite - perhaps the best breakfast I have ever had at a hotel - with amazing staff service and lovely hotel manager,... More

The location is the best aspect of this hotel. The fact that it is across the water from the main peninsula is an attraction, ferried back and forth by a small motor boat. We were lucky enough to have Room 6 with its vast balcony and great view through fronds and leaves over to the main part of Luang Prabang.... More

My husband and I got married at this beautiful hotel last year and have been meaning to write a review to thank the wonderful staff ever since. The hotel is situated on the river with a peaceful garden and pool area where you can immerse yourself in the sounds of nature while still being a stone's throw away from the... More

We had a long lovely stay at Apsara Rive Droite. Anita and her staff look after you with warmth and skill. The rooms are large and very nicely done with a really comfortable bed, big bathroom and balcony with good outdoor furniture. The hotel is some steep steps down to the river bank, a minute's private hotel boat ride and... More

Luang Prabang's Historic District is a UNESCO site. We stayed one night at the sister property, Apsara, located in the district. We thought it was very nice and well located, but they couldn't accommodate us for two more nights. So we moved across the adjacent river to Apsara R.D. At first we didn't like having to "commute" via either the... More

Located in a quiet part of Luang Prabang, yet near enough to get to the old town in 5 minutes by using the boat. Large, clean and beautifully furnished rooms. The staff were very friendly and hospitable, and very efficient too! The best bread in Luang Prabang is served during breakfast. Highly recommended and would definitely stay here again.

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.
