The location may not be walking distance to the city centre and night market but we don't feel it was inconvenient at all - free shuttle were provided anytime you require. Hotel staffs are also very friendly and most of them understand and speak English.

              The pictures are very deceptive, it makes it look like Shanghai -la, it is Not. It’s old and moldy ”
              The staff, in particular Tommy ,was helpful & nice. One thing that is not clearly delineated is that you have to take a boat across the river to get to it. There is No resort or spa. I have no earthly idea how it was given 4 stars, no way maybe 2. Cleanness was a factor, lots of ants in the bathroom. The staff did their best to speak English, definitely a barrier there . No electricity on both sides of the Mekong. Exceptionally limited internet access and call connectivity. There is no food except for breakfast buffet if there are enough people, if not then Ala carte. It is scary because they drop you off when you arrive, at night and point down lots of stairs to a dock dimly lit dock down the hill. For women travelers it’s unnerving. We later spoke to other guests, whom reiderated the same thought. I would have to preferred to stay on the other side of the Mekong. The stairs are steep on both sides, so you need to be able to do that each time there’s a Mekong river crossing.

              2nd visit was less impressive than the first ”
              + still quite an experience crossing the Mekong just to get into town. - since it is a ways out from town, trips must be planned in order to not feel like you are hassling the ferry staff. + concierge services set us up with all the reservations and transportation needed flawlessly - the hotel building was outdated and the shower in the room was really strange. I ended up getting the entire bathroom wet with every shower. I'd recommend staying in the individual huts on the property.

              We had a wonderful stay at the Chanthavinh! It's located outside of the city and on the wrong side of the Mekong River, but the resort's boat and van will take you into town and back any time. Staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. Every day they made our breakfast extra special. Only small problem is that the place needs some love. The roofs need repair, the bathroom needs a refreshment and the pool furniture needs to be fixed/ maintained. Apart from that the room and garden are both beautiful and there was an incredible Mekong river view from the balcony. So relaxing! Wifi was good (for local standards) and the atmosphere is very relaxing. Hope to be back soon!

              This resort is out of town but do not worry about the transportation. Free anytime for all your stay. The garden is real nice. Great food and customize to fit our preference. The GM is really friendly. He provides valuable information as per request. Comfortable room but rather old toilet. Stairs might be a problem for senior people or those with leg problem. You can visit nearby village with pottery service and feel the primitive living. With this price, it is unbelievable.

              A beautiful spot on the river, adding so much more to a trip to LP. ”
              The staff at the Chanthavinh should be commended for their polite and friendly manner. Nothing was too much trouble, an adapter extension cable was found and even a complimentary cocktail from the manager when there was some consternation as how to make it. Transfers across the river and into town did not prove an inconvenience and added to the overall experience. Airport transfers are essential to use this hotel, obviously something that the management have acknowledged in their arrangements. The swimming pool was one of the main reasons I had chosen the resort and it is a lovely pool, much needed after a day of exploring . Lovely gardens too. It should be noted that this hotel needs a lot of ' tlc'. Maintenance work is needed throughout, a constant in any tropical climate, but the resort has a lot to do. The hotel advertises itself as a spa, but it was not evident as to whether these services were available. PLEASE NOTE,VISITORS NEED TO BE ABLE TO CLIMB STEPS.

              Many stairs to get from land to the boat..... and many stairs to climb from the boat to the resort. Our boat died in the middle of the lake. Staff did everything they could to get us to the resort... but it was still about 30 mins of being stranded in the middle of the water. If your looking for a quiet place to just relax it’s great.... but if you want to go to town for a coffee you have to get on the boat. Very difficult to get to with an elder and little baby...plus luggage. I would not stay here again

              While the place looked lovely. Nobody was there to pick us up. It was quite a distance to the hotel from the airport. Staff denied having our booking via Agoda. The manager told the staff that he was busy and does not want to be disturbed. Horrible service by Mr. Huang. Made the entire stay cold and. Dreadful. Booked a hotel in town the next day.

              My wife and I booked this hotel for 8 nights, on our arrival having to cross the Mekong river on a canal boat with access either side being some 80+ steps in the dark is quite a daunting task, especially when this is not made clear on the hotel description.. The hotel staff do not speak English, and communication is difficult to say the least. The resort is extremely tired and run down, the rooms are large but the bedding was filthy stained pillow cases and quilt cover. Nasty musky smell, couldn’t bath as the plug would not hold the water, WiFi poor, sun loungers were rotting wood with no mattress and was expected to lie on them with just a towel! Dining areas no better stains on chairs, managers dog on the table and filthy fridge where they stored the food for breakfast with mould around inside of the fridge door. This was advertised as a 4 star resort I would barely give it a 1 star.. This whole experience ruined the first 2 days of our time in Luang Prabang as we couldn’t bear it any longer we found another hotel which was a d team compared to this one..

              It is a really nice place!!!! Awesome view to Mekong and amazing garden around. But! It is on the other side of the Mekong, don't forget to check it on the map as we did :). so you are far and a long boat trip away from Luang Prabang's center. Perfect place for those who want to be a little far away from everything. Breakfast was great. Having dinner there is not an option.
