Spectacular Mekong View

Great view of the Mekong River. Personal attention and service. Superb level of accommodation.
I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 night stay at Villa Saynam in December 2015. A highlight of the visit was the spectacular view overlooking the Mekong River. All the rooms enjoy this view, and breakfasts are served on a deck extending over the riverbank. The hotel is small (only 4 rooms), so the level of personal attention is great. Service was always prompt and professional. The cleanliness and level of accommodation was superb. Situated toward Ban Xieng Lek village just upriver from Luang Prabang, Villa Saynam offers abundant peace and quiet. The only drawback might be that it is a bit isolated -- but the staff are always ready to transport you into LP at your request. Villa Saynam is fabulous place to stay just outside of Luang Prabang!

An amazing view and wonderful experience!

The location on the Mekong, watching locals collecting logs in their longboats on the river, lovely breakfast overlooking the Mekong, comfortable room and bed.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Saynam, although we have to say, we were initially a little concerned as it rained all day and the residence is quite some distance out of town. However, as soon as the rain cleared, so did our concerns! We borrowed bikes from the owner on some of the days and rode into town, meeting the locals and discovering little villages along the way. However, staff were also available to drive us to/from town if/when needed. On a couple of occasions we took a longboat back to the Residence from town - this, and the bike riding, added to, and were highlights of, our stay and our wonderful experiences in Luang Prabang! We highly recommend Villa Saynam (although it's distance from town probably isn't ideal for everyone) and will most definitely stay here again if/when we next visit Luang Prabang.

Nice quiet place, a bit far from the city

river view, quiet place and large room
Satifactory even the rooms are not as booked (we booked two triple-room types but one of them occupied by another guest. Cleanliness need improvement,dust is everywhere. No chef, only breakfast is available and has to inform in advance.

friendly helful staff, quite relaxing

nice river view, great staffs, value of money
We stayed 2nights during Laos new year. The villa is nice with good river view in spite of little bit far from the town. The staff are very friendly and helpful , shuttle bus is very good and the driver is very kindly for waiting in the night. The manager, Ms. Rattana, was a very kindly person with helpful to customers. If we visit Luang Pra Bang again, we must stay in this villa only.

quiet, on the river, small.
We stayed 10 nights in January. Located 1.5 km north of the end of the peninsula and beyond the weaving and paper-making village. By bike or car, 5km. On arrival we were greeted at the airport and taken directly to the hotel, a 4 bedroom home directly on the Mekong. Breakfast was fresh, simple and served at the time we chose the night before on the deck over the Mekong. Try for a corner suite as it is spacious and has a nice corner deck. The room and hotel was clean and decorated with art from local artisans - weaving art, pottery, and photos taken by the Lao owner, Mimi. The hotel will provide rides to and from town. However, my husband and I are avid cyclists. The hotel arranged mtn. bikes for us and we used these as our sole transport. This was a pleasure since we rolled through the small local market and weaving village each day. I would return to Villa Saynam.

Nice and Quiet

Quiet, Clean, Comfortable
It was lovely. There are no TVs in the rooms, so if you are like me to use the TV to sleep, and then never get a good nights sleep, this place will be perfect because you wake up rested.

Beautiful villa in remote riverside location

Beautiful villa, nice riverside location, very peaceful
This is a great option for a peaceful stay on the beautiful Mekong river outside of Luang Prabang - the villa and gardens are beautiful, and it is a very tranquil spot. It is some distance from the town, about 15-20 minutes drive, but there is a car and driver to take you wherever you want, whenever you want. The hotel only provides breakfast and there are no restaurants or shops nearby so you do need the car, although the staff can arrange for dinner to be deliverred. But I was surprised though that they didn't offer any kind of refreshment or snack. However the breakfast is delicious, and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Very nice hotel with a lovely garden on the river

Small hotel, simple comfort, excellent service, good breakfast, garden on the river bank
Although this boutique hotel is 10 minutes away from the center of town the hotel provided us with transport at all times. Simple but comfortable large rooms. Fantastic breakfast at the terrace overlooking the river. Very nice staff helpful manager! We will be back!
