The Apsara Rive Droite

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 17, 2012

We spent three wonderful nghts at the beautiful Apsara Rive Droite. Terrific large and well appointed room, great balcony with a great view, great breakfasts served so well on that private balcony, great staff, and so peaceful but just seconds away from the old town. The only issue was that we did not have more time to spend there.

Room Tip: The top floor is the ground floor when you enter the hotel as it is built on the slope leading down...

This is a really lovely spot. It is very small (I think there about 8/9 rooms) and beautifully done, in a truly idyllic spot overlooking the river and across to the centre of Luang Prabang. The rooms are large and nicely furnished, and the balcony (I'd always go for the first floor rooms) was dreamy. You come here for stylish peace and quiet. Breakfast is served downstairs in the garden next to a small, deliciously cold pool lined with loungers. When you've had your fill of temples and river trips, there is nowhere better to be in LP. The staff are all very friendly and efficient. And the manager Marie, who is charm itself, will meet you when you arrive and make you feel welcome and at home before you've even unpacked your bags. A real treat.

Great views, lovely rooms, pool which catches the sun all day and a lot of bang for your buck. We were slightly concerned it might be a bit far from the centre of town until we found out that they have their own little boat to take you across from the hotel to the centre of town - all of about a 30 second ride. The staff are delightful and they have a charming French manager who will make sure your stay goes smoothly. Enjoy.

The hotel was really calm and relaxing. Breakfast was amongst the best I had. Coffee fabulous and really great croissants, fresh fruit etc. There is a traditional evening Lao meal which has to be ordered the day before which is well worth having, served on the lovely terrace. Only slight downside was that there was not a lot of choice on the wine list. The boat takes you across the river to town or you can walk over the bamboo bridge. Rooms are huge with very very comfy beds and nice shower gels, shampoos etc, which you can buy from there too. No TVs or radios - a quiet place to stay in style.

We had heard that Luang Prabang was a beautiful place - and it was. If we had expectations these were exceded, A wonderful place to be half way through a 3 week tour of Indo-china. This hotel - Apsara Rive Droit - just added to it. All the staff were terrific, the manageress setting the style. The hotel is comfortable, our bedroom was roomy and had a great view. The breakfast, served at table - no "Do-it-yourself" buffet here - was tasty and well presented on a delightful terrace. The grounds are a beautiful garden leading down to the river - Nam Kahn. The location is ideal. You are minutes away from the centre of town but get a lovely switch off and sense of calm as you cross the river in the hotel's boat. Truly a Paradise in Paradise.

Room Tip: We preferred our room overlooking the river to those that also overlooked the swimming pool.

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 days at the Apsara Rive Droite. The hotel is in a beautiful, quiet setting overlooking the river, across from the main town. The swimming pool is set in private gardens and the rooms are spacious and chic, with their own large shaded balconies or porches. Breakfast is included and involves a menu of choices (flawless laos coffee, fresh fruit, pastries, omelettes, pancakes) all of which are freshly prepared and delicious. The staff are exceptionally helpful and made all the difference to our stay. It is easy to do excursions around the area from the hotel - although we had to pull ourselves away from the hotel.

We loved the Apsara Rive Droite - a warm welcome and consistently wonderful service throughout our 4 day stay. The staff were extremely helpful with our endless requests for bikes/restaurant bookings/directions etc. The rooms were very comfortable with lovely bathrooms. We enjoyed the breakfasts on the terrace near the pool. Delicious Omelette Masala and fresh pineapple juice. We enjoyed eating dinner at the Apsara on the other side of the river - they have the best ice cream in town.
