Located a 2 minute walk from the town across a bridge you fell like you are deep in the country when you wake up. I stayed in a bungalow facing the main river opposite the cliffs. Some bungalows face the smaller river and face the back of the bars. Rooms are large and clean. Only ever had mildly warm water... More

Myself and my fiance stayed here for two nights in June 13. Being low season it was quiet in Vang Vieng so no noise travelled to our bungalow at night. It's distance from the main tourist high street is good about 5 mins and on the island banks of the river. Our bungalow (9A) had a lovely balcony and view... More

Myself and a group of friends travelled around Asia and ended up here when we hit Laos. We are aged in our mid twenties and did not have any partners with us so it was a boys trip. Cant say i would recommend it for children as your are dangerously cose to the river. The location was as good as... More

It took us ten minutes to walk from the bus-station to this guesthouse. This guesthouse shares the same reception with another guesthouse, so do not get confused when you reach here. The reception is small and simple, not so friendly and speak only basic English. We were led by another lady to the bungalows. The route was interesting that we... More

Very romantic and quiet place in Vang Vieng. Its a bid adventorous to get there. One bridge was in flood water, the other did not look to assuring. But the room and the view from the deck make it worth it. The breakfest was not spectacular, but then again in the price included was a full english or american breakfest.... More

This is a little piece of paradise, but close to everything. The bungalows are on a little piece of island, just a walkway away from town. Get a bungalow facing the mountains and river. Don't let the tuk tuk driver divert you to another resort of similar name. This one is right in town, from the bus station down a... More

These bungalows are away from the craziness of the village centre, but only just ! Don't expect to be in an oasis of calm, but they are certainly peaceful and very green, with great views across the river. Beware of people trying to divert you into their own bungalows - cashing in on the success of this place. This has... More

I really liked this bungalows, it was a little confusing because they used to be another name Le Jardin, which is right next door, but they are not the same anymore. The bungalow I stayed in was the basic one, with a river view, fan and hot shower. I paid $20 which included breakfast, and felt it was worth the... More

We booked this hotel online and were looking forward to our trip, as the site stated that it was " relaxing, quiet, tranquil" It was none of these!! This hotel was noisy and did not offer the guests relaxation, it was one of the worst places that I have stayed, the staff were rude and not concerned with guests needs,... More
