Very welcoming staff, and helpful in any issues we had while we were at The Apsara. The pool is next to the garden. A perfect temperature, and seems very secluded. While still being next to the river. A really Lovely place, and if I am lucky enough to see Luang Prabang again, I will be heading back.

The hotel's charming french colonial architecture and the palette of beautiful colors and whimsical wallpaper gave it such character over other hotels. The grounds were well manicured and the space, well thought out. A breezy yet cozy restaurant washed in whites and blues, a swimming pool with deck chairs for the brutally sunny afternoons, a library lounge for the lazier... More

The resort is located just across the Kham river from the centre of Luang Prabang. The location is great, with views of the river and glimpses of the temple roofs amongst the trees surrounding the temples. The centre is easily accessible by the resorts own little boat, which is always on standby. We also took bikes across the nearby bridge... More

Picturesque, charming hotel that is very well run by Anita and her staff. Excellent customer service...we always felt taken care of. Location is very close to center of town but the hotel itself is slightly removed which is nice to have a peaceful hotel with pool but also have the city center accessible. Complimentary breakfast was excellent. Also had complimentary... More

We enjoyed a wonderful couple of nights at The Aspara Rive Droite over Christmas. Anita and the team were very friendly and helpful. Loved the private boat taxi across the river. It made what would otherwise have been a slightly awkward location very convenient. The bamboo bridge was also very useful (although remember to take some spare change for the... More

Just a short boat trip across to main part of town on the hotel's boat.The manager and staff are very helpful. The bathrooms are very good. The room is spacious and tastefully decorated. Breakfasts are delicious.

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
