Good location, awesome scenery. ”
The resort has a garden overlooking Nam Song River. Every morning you can enjoy your breakfast, watching the activities on the river. Some rooms have balcony overlooking the river. It's only 5mins walk to the Walking Street (night market). Lots of restaurants as you walk out. Resort situated down the slope, from the main road... So, look out for signs.
Superb riverside location for an economy hotel”
Run by a very helpful British man and it was nice to have a chat. The room size for one person was enormous. I am a lizard fan so I enjoyed all the geckos on the walls. Was worried about mosquitoes but no problem even with the river right outside. Really was a tremendous view. The best of any hotel on my Cambodia/Lao trip. Wish I had stayed the extra day as lots to do in Vieng Vien.
Plus point for the balcony”
Room - If you have a thing for balconies, sunset and view, this place is a good option. (Request for upper floor room or overlooking river) - The balcony is a plus point for us. Spacious with 2 lazy chairs. Perfect for smokers. - Bed is hard but tolerable. - Toilet is pretty big as seen in photo. Shower's drainage is seems blocked (they should get it fixed) - Room is spacious and clean but it does have a moldy smell.. maybe due to old furnitures. Location A good starting point to explore the area. Streets outside the hotel has pretty much most basic needs; money changer, tour operators, restaurants etc. Breakfast - Not a place for those who enjoys a wide breakfast spread. - But it does have a nice outdoor space with river view. Quite a space to sit down for coffee in the morning.
Bad news first. The room is far from winning a design award and the bathroom is a nightmare. Both need a total makeover and at least some thorough cleaning. Water was not always available and same for the internet. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's hard to use and sometimes it's non existent. But the place has a very relaxed atmosphere and from the gardens and restaurant area you have a fantastic view on the river and the beautiful mountains. Buffet breakfast offers many nice food options and the staff are friendly and helpful. Check in and out took about 5 seconds only. Certainly worth the bucks. Would come back!
A nice place to stay in Vang Vieng, and during day, the garden is a lovely place to sit and relax. But the some of the river view bungalows (1-3) are right in front of the boat launch and so can be very noisy at certain times. There is also music blaring from a guesthouse across the river, but only in the evening and not too late.
Overall a satisfactory stay”
Good location with car park. Room was very spacious and clean. Breakfast didn't offer many choices but personally I was still fully satisfied with the food. Worth the price? Not sure that I'd say yes, but still a good choice, especially for families.
Fish out of water”
Lovely Riverside room. Beautiful views. Staff great. Just why would all these whute European kids not just stay at home and get wasted? Debauchery in paradise. At least this resort does not attract the clientele above. But it is one of the very few.
The hotel is in a great location right on the river. The included breakfast was great and served in the over river restaurant with great views. The free wifi was reliable and speed ok. My room was well equipped and comfortable. The only downside was that I thought drink prices in the bar/restaurant were over priced compared to nearby establishments.
Nice view of the river, beautiful hotel”
Very nice view of the Nam Song river from the hotel restaurant. Very close the boat pier that you could take a 40-minute boat ride the resort is very nice with separate houses. The room is a bit basic but it is fine, about 5-10mins walk to the downtown Value for money for such a memorable experience
Great place except for rooster crowing ”
Everything was good about the hotel but the roosters that were crowing all night. Initially, I thought it was sound of drunk young punks yelling but turned out to be roosters, competing for which one had the loudest and strangest sound. They should relocate these animals.
Nice resort by the river with beautiful views.”
Had a nice stay here. Clean and spacious rooms. The bathroom has constant hot water and good water pressure. The resort is right by the river and you get spectacular views of the mountains. The location was also pretty good. Vang vieng city center isn't that big of a place so I think any location probably would be ok. The resort grounds are beautiful and picture worthy itself. The staff seemed friendly enough as well. Overall, had a great stay and would totally stay here again.
you must stay here!!!!”
we loved our stay at thavonsouk resort, stayed in a riverview room, was not disappointed. sublime views. Aluna and James really know the hospitality industry and made what would have been a pleasant stay, an exceptional one.
Fantastic views of the sunset and sunrise. The resort had a beautiful garden with swings and gazebo. We had a balcony from which we could sit and enjoy the mountain view each day. It is situated at the start of the motorised river boat and the end for the kayaks. The breakfast was limited but we enjoyed the owner playing the guitar during the meal.
Practical Hotel with Nice View”
thavornsuk has many rooms for traveller that we can choose the type of the room. it is too expensive for backpacker but it is good quality for a person who wanna relax or family trip. for me, i love the terrace which you can enjoy breakfast with nice view.
Load and overpriced”
The facility itself is fine - nothing special, but adequate. However the noise from the boat traffic and the music (all day and the evening) from the river bar across the river makes it unbearable. We understand it’s not the hotel’s fault, but it was a bit of a disaster for us. Also, they don’t clean your room daily which again, no big deal if I was paying 40$, but the price was too much. We paid about 65 US which is a complete rip off.
Lovely place but the air conditioner is not cold”
The room is specious. The location is good (you can see the river and the mountain from the resort). The staff is nice and helpful. but one comment is the air conditioner is bad (not cold, even I set the temperature in 16 degree) and I think you must to maintenance the air conditioner now.
I loved this place! It's beautiful, both the surroundings and the resort's landscaped gardens. It's right by the Nam Song and surrounding karsts. Great for nature lovers, families, groups, and for quiet contemplation. Would stay again. The only thing is its
We got river view rooms where we were there for 2 nights. The river view room has a very nice view. The hotel is clean with nice garden. The facilities are limited. It was hot during our stay and the air conditioning in the room is not powerful. So it took hours to cool down. Breakfast was not the strength here but the coffe was nice.
Very nice view ”
I love this place
View to die for!”
We went as backpacker - kinda. So, the hotel was great, comfortable, strategically located in front of Mekong River! We love the view. We did extended our stay.
