“The best out there in Vang Vieng, so far.”
Reviewed May 16, 2011

Villa Nam Song is one of those places that when you had the feeling that it was going to be awesome just when you took the first step in.

The hotel is located right next to the river, a bit further down the road from the town. You can walk down the little road next to the hotel's gate to the river directly, and there were tour boats for hire there.

Located in the middle area of the hotel, between the rooms and the river, is a lovely garden, perfect for a little romance in the evening.

The staffs were helpful and friendly, they saw my friend hung up her bikinis on her balcony and they dried them up for her, out of courtesy.

The rooms were spacious and clean, basic amenities were daily replenished: flip flops, towels, shampoo, soap, shower caps. Some rooms do not have a fridge - my triple room had one, my friend's double room did not, and do not expect telephones or TV (hint: you don't need those).

The food and drinks were ones of the better of the town, the only place that beat this so far is Luang Prabang Bakery (which costed twice more).

The hotel has free wi-fi access, although it is on a slower side, just enough to check up some news and get some e-mails pushed. I'd recommend buying a 3G sim card if you are planning to do anything heavier.

It is a tad bit pricey, but you'll get a more peace-loving crowd here.

Room Tip: Book early. Ask for river-view rooms.

On dropping in was told fully booked. Little good accommodation in Vang Vieng so with no luck at the better establishments went online and found it available via booking.com. Obviously didn't like the look of me when cold calling. The location/views are magnificent, this is what you are paying for but still way overpriced compared to nearby accommodation. The room was very clean and spacious but absolutely bare. No TV, or wardrobe space, just a couple of wall hooks for hanging clothes and one small chest of drawers. More importantly it didn't even have a fridge. Had to keep the noisy air conditioning on all night to drown out the noise of the 3 air conditioning units situated outside our room window, otherwise would have made do with the ceiling fan. Gardens very well kept and restaurant setting beautiful, right on the river, fantastic views.

A secluded and quiet hotel, facing the river and the karst mountains, set in a relaxing and well tended garden.
Simple but more then adequate rooms, the front rooms having a wonderful view, the back rooms being probably a little less pleasant.
Nice staff, could just be a little more smiling.
Nice restaurant over the river, good diner (especially considering other available options in Vang Vieng).

We ended up here by accident - we checked out the place next door Thavonsuk which was really bad. The grounds here are really nice, it is at the quieter end of town and because of the higher prices you are not stuck with backpackers and rowdy people. Unfortunately however the higher prices don't mean nice rooms - the rooms are very average - there are quite a lot of mosquitos but no mosquito nets and if you get a room not facing the river it is obviously not as nice (yet same price as those facing the river!!). It is quite dark. But it is most likely better than anything else on offer in town. Although the grounds and people are quiet the neighbouring hotel was blaring music until past midnight. This is not the hotel's fault but unfortunate. The grounds are great, the views are great, the variety of snacks and drinks and their price was good. The food was average though much better than other places in town. Vang Vieng has so much potential yet it does not appear that there are high quality or high end places in town - this place has potential but still needs work. Vang Vieng just needs some competition in town to lift the standards of places.

This was the third time we have stayed at Villa Nam Song having visited in 2006, 2007 and 2010. Each stay has been very enjoyable and the staff could not have been more helpful.
This time (October 2010) we were a large group of motorcycle adventure riders. (20pax)
Everyone in the group had a wonderful stay, the food was great and the riverside location is hard to beat

Loved this place. It has the best views of the cliffs and the river.
And you a right in the middle of town, yet very quite location.
The staff could not be more helpful.
While the rooms are sparse, they contain everything you need.
And if you need anything or help, just ask the general magaer, Hussein is great.
From this location you can easily take a boat ride up the river.
Also, if you do the tubde ride, you are walking distance to end of the journey as wll as the retun of the tubes, back to the shop.

We were placed at this resort from a package tour we had booked.We were told that they always put the Americans and Brits here as it is alittle more upscale and quieter than others in town.Rooms were adequite there is no TV,the a/c was very loud.The grounds were beautiful and the sunsets great.Resturant was good also food probaly batter than in town.There was no place to lay outside and read a book besides some hard benches. Managment seemed interested in you having a good stay. Highest price in town for a room but no rowdy backpackers to worry about so it's a wash.
