we spent christmas here-- The property is gorgeous--often you look at a picture or brochure and say 'it just cannot look like that' and at the riverside boutique it does! The hotel is in the quieter area of town (a huge bonus) and close the bridge to watch the comings and goings-- while we were there it was quite cool-- but being from the north, our kids still enjoyed the pool very much. the rooms were very comfortable and had a fridge/minibar and lovely bath facilities -- the staff here, i thought, were excellent-- they were very accommodating and friendly -- They even came to my daughter's room with a cake and sang happy birthday to her! I was so shocked! i had made the reservation so long ago, i forgot that i had even mentioned (or maybe i didn't?) that is was her birthday -- in any event-- that kind of detail was truly a sign of the thoughtful character of this resort -- the breakfast was second to none-- i have rarely seen such a spread-- something for everyone from anywhere from a traditional lao noodle soup (which my husband and daughter loved) to congee, to beans, croissant, fruit, yogurt, bacon and eggs-- you name it! I hope we can go back and see more of this area and stay here again--
