Neil and Pan, the resort's new manager couple, combine Western standards with Lao charm to provide the warmest, most welcoming experience we've encountered during our World Trip. The resort is quiet, the bungalows clean and roomy, the common areas lively. All staff is very friendly, though mostly Lao-speaking. Oliver, their two-and-a-half year old, runs amok and charms everyone with his daring and outgoing nature. Roger and Chien, the resort's two quiet dogs, hang around the reception area. The food is wonderful and the portions are big. The new dinner menu is worth checking out.
We initially booked for two nights on our way up to Luang Prabang but ended up extending our stay twice to a total of over three weeks. Vang Vieng just makes a great place to balance outdoorsiness with doing absolutely nothing. In terms of tours, Neil and Pan's knowledge is quite useful, knowing who to call for which activity.
Location is very good; a five minute walk from the main street and ten minutes to the river. In the morning there are lovely views of the sunrise over the rice fields and distant mountains.
