This is an outstanding boutique hotel, a true gem with only nine rooms. While we initially were not sure about the location on the "wrong" side of the river, I could not be happier about it in hindsight. There is a private boat on call, so there is no issue in getting across the river. The big advantage of the... More

We had a wonderful stay in this boutique hotel. Our room was very nice and had almost everything we needed. A bit more storageroom would have been Nice. Staff was well trained and very helpful. The transfer with the private boat went always very smoothly. Breakfast was not buffetstyle but made to order and of high quality. Lots of quality... More

Our travel agent booked us into this hotel by accident instead of the Apsara across the river in town proper. So I hadn't read tripadvisor before staying there. I am glad of this happy accident because I might not have booked it due to some comments from 2010 and 2013. So let me start off by saying the road is... More

We stayed at this delicious boutique hotel for 4 nights to a) see Luang Prabang and b) for a rest, both equally important. The Apsara RD suited us exactly with helpful, courteous staff good food and plenty of room to spread out. With 9 rooms is it quite secluded and there is as much personal assistance as you need but...

We had a really fantastic five night stay at the Apsara Rive Droite in November. We loved staying on the opposite side of the Nam Khan, and our huge balcony had a beautiful view of the historic part of town. Luang Prabang was the highlight of our trip to southeast Asia, and the Apsara Rive Droite set the tone for... More

The Apsara River Droite is a first class boutique hotel and was the perfect place to start our Lao hoilday. A seamless pickup at the airport followed by a warm welcome and great advice on where to eat on our first night (Dyen Sabai is a 5 minute walk) set the scene for our stay. The room and service was...

for no reason i felt I deserved an extra special treat so I added on a couple of nights here while I was in Luang Prabang. After all I was templed out, and what bliss it was. To swim in a pool surrounded by tropical plants while watching 5 butterflies fly round over the pool. It felt so private and... More

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
