Riverside Boutique Resort
Ranked #1 of 26 Hotels in Vang Vieng
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for three nights at the end of the trip. Perfect place to relax. Good location in that it's close to the action but not right there so it's very quiet. Pool is great. Amazing breakfast with made to order omelets and real American bacon! Rooms are nice. Very good service. They didn't have one of our rooms ready when we got there (had it prepared ten minutes later) but they have us a free night because of that. Staff speak great English.

Rarely does a hotel totally exceed all my expectations but this one nailed it. Everything about the resort is amazing and the views absolutely jaw dropping. The staff were wonderful led by a general manager who obviously really cares about them and the happiness of his guests. Fantastic food, beautiful rooms and a location to die for. My only regret was not staying longer! We will be back!

Room Tip: From what I saw there are no bad rooms here but you could always treat yourself to a suite!

We loved the hotel for its location, the view and the lovely service. We enjoyed new years eve and the manager was so excited. The organization was perfect, but half of the guest were missing, which was sad. Dancing children, good food (western), lots of service staff... well done! Service was great - they even organized additional blankets for us at 23:50 on December 31st! Very enjoyable hotel with a great view! Reception staff also helped with our next destination and transport issues.

Room Tip: look out for the view!

We stayed here for 2 nights and although pretty pricey it was a superb experience. The pool and landscaped gardens around are lovely and the view across the river and mountains is stunning. We spent time by the pool and on our balcony just watching the view. The room was huge and well furnished but the bed was a little hard (not unusual in Asia). The staff always friendly and willing to help. The poolside service in particular was very good. The main plus point of this property is that it is within walking distance to the town but far enough outside to be peaceful and quiet. If we return too Vang Vieng we will definitely be staying at the Riverside Boutique!

Room Tip: LL7 was our room and very satisfactory it was.

Beautiful location on Mekong River...mountains in background. Service was excellent. Food was Lao/Ital/etc .Wonderful brunch. Felt like royalty here. Owner always present...early morning to late at night to make sure everyone was happy. Close to town(1 blk), and village across river.

Room Tip: Some rooms face garden. Most face pool and /or mountains.

I had a chance to stay here, and it was just beautiful. The whole setting with the mountains and the river, the ruralness surrounding it - away from the city - it was wholly enjoyable. You could certainly stay in one of the guesthouses in town for a tenth of the price, but this was worth the splurge. Take a walk across the little suspension bridge and walk around in the countryside on the other side of the river - there's even a German Thai man, Mr. Katz, who has a little restaurant on the river bank and he makes wienerschnitzel and German fried potatoes that are just great! The only complaint I have is that when we asked what our options were for driving over the mountains to Luang Prabang, the hotel manager only told us about a private car - not the public bus that goes every day at 9 a.m. for just a few dollars (instead of over $150). That was not being forthright, but in every other respect, it was a lovely stay in wonderful surroundings.

This is one of the best hotels we have stayed in world-wide (see our past reviews to get idea of our preferences and other hotels we’ve visited). The location is stunning – near the toll bridge and right on the river, with the mountains in the background. The grounds are immaculate and beautifully landscaped. Service is superior throughout the hotel – the restaurant, the pool, the front desk. The hotel is an easy walk to restaurants and shops (try the nearby small AMD restaurant – very good). The hotel manager is friendly and attentive, and seems to work hard to make certain guests are comfortable, circulating among tables at breakfast and chatting with those who are open to it.

Our room (LL-5) was on the 2nd floor of a two story building that directly faced the river and mountains, and overlooked the central grounds and pool. At night the gardens are beautifully lit, complete with lanterns in the trees, and the view from our pleasant balcony was particularly stunning in early morning and at sunset. The room was large and attractively decorated. The king bed was comfortable and the a.c. was quiet and effective. There was a large built-in closet/minbar area with a safe. The bathroom was large and smartly decorated in grey stone tiles, and there was a good amount of counter space. There was a shower/tub combo. A minor quibble is that the bathroom seemed a bit dark.

Wifi was included and worked well throughout the hotel.

Breakfast was in the restaurant on the second floor of another building with very pleasant views of the river, the mountains and the toll bridge. The buffet was excellent, with a large selection of fruit, juices, omelets to order, meats, yoghurt, cereal, croissants, etc., etc.

We don’t hesitate to recommend the Riverside and would certainly stay here again.
