We spent two nights in Feb. 2013 at this new hotel alongside the river ! Truly a paradise with the mountains around this gem... Top services from the staff and good breakfast ! Thank you to the young staff for this nice stay. We will be back.

We stayed with 3 other couples.all of us enjoyed our stay here, leaving tomorrow. Great location on the river besides the bridge. The Rooms are large, staff very friendly and the pool is ideal after a busy day. All had a magical time and enjoyed the sights. Breakfast in hotel was fine but very good, cheap meals can be found everywhere. We are still trying to find a bad one. This hotel and town has surprised us all.

We had booked just one night at this very comfortable hotel in December 2012 en route to Luang Prabang. The hotel is well positioned - close to the town but far enough to loose the noise of late night revellers with lovely views of the mountains. The rooms were stunning - large and spacious with well apportioned bathrooms. Ask for a room on the second floor. Our only complaint was that we were there in peak season which meant lots and lots of families with small children. The rooms all overlook the pool where there was an inordinate amount of noise which meant no midday rest. The breakfast room was overrun with kids. My husband, who loves breakfast, was also not impressed by the variety but the coffee was good and the breakfast terrace has a magnificent view.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor

We loved our stay at the Riverside Boutique Resort in Vang Vieng. The rooms are spacious, so are the bathrooms and very nicely furnished. The view from our private balcony was amazing, especially sunsets were so beautiful. The pool is great and very refreshing after a hot day out in the sun There are also many sunloungers and towels are provided. Most staff members were super friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was good with a selection of Asian and Western dishes. Breakfast is until 10 am but not everything may last until the end. Only thing bothering us a little during our stay was the missing mosquito net over our bed as we had quite a few mossies in our room. Also the laundry service is ridiculously expensive compared to all other places in town. We would have liked to try the hotel's restaurant but they charge about three times as much as most good places in town. Overall I would have rated this resort 4-5 stars!

Unfortunately we made the mistake of booking bus transport to Vientiane and further onto Hanoi at the hotel's reception. Let's just say that the journey to Hanoi was among the most horrible experiences in many many months of travel. The bus company warmly recommended by the hotel's staff member started hitting and screaming at us Western travellers on the bus, pure racism. Asian passengers were treated with respect and got proper sleeper bunks while we were stuck in coffin-like spaces just above the hot engine. On top of that we were grossly overcharged for the bustickets by the hotel. We found out later from the other passenger who'd paid not even half as much. Partly our fault though I guess, never going to trust anybody here again. We realize that it's the bus company's behaviour at fault but the hotel selling the tickets is equally involved.

Conclusion: Very nice hotel to stay at :), from what I've seen among the best in Vang Vieng! Just don't book any transport there.

Room Tip: Had a room on the second floor with a great few of the river and the surrounding mountains. Private balcony was spacious and quite privat.

Dear guest, we are glad you enjoyed your stay at our Resort and we very much regret that your trip ended on a bad note because of a terrible bus ride. While it was only to try and make the stay of our guests easier that we used to sell bus tickets, at no profit for the Resort, we recognize that it may have given the misleading impression that we were endorsing the transport companies involved – this was not the case. Following your unfortunate experience, we have decided to stop selling bus tickets and to provide more appropriate warnings to travellers in the future. Best regards, RBR
