“Beautiful situated new hotel”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We were pleasantly surprised with this beautiful new hotel, situated on the banks of the Nam Song, at the outside of the rather ugly town. The simmingpool is an extra bonus on a hot day.
Our room was very spacious and comfortable with a big balcony and a stunning view of the majestic karst peaks. The bed has excellent mattresses.
We enjoyed our breakfast, served near the river, with such a beautiful view of the mountains. We found that the choices for the breakfast were too limited for a hotel of that level. We were rather tired of having to eat every morning eggs.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
We only found that their proposed excursions are far too expensive and preferred to go on our own.

I stayed at the Riverside Boutique as a getaway break for my parents first visit to Laos. We were all taken aback by the beauty of the resort and its surroundings. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the pool and view simply awesome, and the food in the restaurant, not to mention the service from the staff is higher than first class. Well done Riverside Boutique.

We visited this resort during the weekend of 18-20 August 2012. We were a group of 10 people...ages ranging from 4-62!!!! The hotel was FANTASTIC. The staff - even more. The accommodation and other services of EXCELLENT top notch quality. It was a welcome break from the hassles of our daily/weekly schedules and certainly a place i'd recommend to many other people visiting Laos or Vang Vieng in particular.

Looking forward to another trip there. Thank you so very much to the management and staff for a wonderful reception during our stay.

I thoroughly enjoyed my 3 days at Riverside Boutique Hotel. The hotel has THE best views of the mountain and it was amazing spending a day by the pool with fantastic views.

Staff could not have been friendlier and the few meals I had at restaurant were delicious.

Hotel is a mere 5-10 minute walk to the rowdy end of town and several excellent restaurants are nearby.

Breakfast is the usual fare with cereal and eggs / bacon, toast.

I would have stayed longer but had to get back to Vientiane. Hotel is highly recommended if you want a bit of rest and relaxation.

a wonderful, quiet, but still enough central located new hotel wirh nearly everything you want, if you don't belong to the party crasher travellers.
it opened july 1st and we got there 10 days later. everybody is really friendly and helpful. staff is 'learning by doing' and happy for suggestions about what is missing.
the pool in the middle is very nice and relaxing in the shade while looking at the beautiful nature/karstmountains is the best way to relax after long and bumpy busrides! early/morning tube rides too...
we booked via agoda.com and got a superb deal for the rooms. would go again!!!

Stayed there with my wife as we were making our way from Vientiane to Luang Prabang. We wanted to visit the beautiful region around Vang Vieng and ended up staying 3 nights instead of 2 simply because of the Riverside Boutique Hotel.

The location on the river is stunning, you can tell the hotel has opened very recently, everything looks fresh and new! It has been decorated with a lot of taste. Our room was spacious and comfortable, the staff was super friendly and the food absolutely delicious. Simply the best hotel experience we've had in a long long time. And what a view from the pool...

Haven't stopped talking about this hotel to friends since we've been back...!

Room Tip: We stayed in a beautiful Hmong room

Just opened a few days ago, the Riverside Boutique Hotel is a new 4 star hotel in Vang Vieng. Fantastic views, great gardens and swimming pool, comfortable rooms and, by Vang Vieng standards, excellent service.
