Excellent”
The resort is located 12km from Luang Prabang on a bumpy road in an idilic location. There are many trekking options in the area and also local villages to visit. The location is amazing for a scape but I wouldn't recommend if your purpose is to visit Luang Prabang. Anyway, the resort offers shuttle service twice per day for 4usd/person/way. The swimming pool is great, same as the common facilities. The staff are very polite and nice and the resort is very well managed. I found the rooms a little bit small for the price and needing of some touches like a better shower, larger desk and bed tables on both sides, but in general it was very good, they just need to keep up the good work and management. The restaurant offers good quality food with reasonable prices. They are higher than the average but there is nothing around! The salads are great. In general, a fantastic retreat if your aim is to relax and observe the amazing landscape outside Luang Prabang!

Nice location but some things for improvement”
I was so looking forward to my time here, and I really wanted to give this place a 5-star rating, but it's not possible. The pro's: nice location, some great walks to local villages and waterfall (which had no water this time of year), pool was lovely and relaxing on a hot day, bungalows were quiet, private and quaint, relaxed atmosphere. The cons: the rooms (especially bathroom) could do with some love, the relaxed atmosphere was at times a bit 'too' relaxed for the price, only the manager spoke english so it wasn't possible to interact with other staff - even to order food. All in all Hillside was fine, but thought it a bit expensive for what it was. It's possible to experience other rural parts of Laos in more beautiful and authentic settings for a lot less cost. But if you're looking for a rural place to escape the city of Luang Prabang for a few days, this might be ok for you.

A nice getaway ”
If you're looking for a quiet place to relax, this is the place to be. It's about 30 min from the city so do not expect to be going back and forth a lot. I spent 2 nights here which was perfect way to relax from all the traveling. Pierre speaks perfect English which was great. The only thing is that there is no restaurants in the area so you have to eat at the hotel which was fine. There a different hiking spots around there to waterfalls but I went during dry season so we didn't see any. This has been my favorite part. If I could do it over, I would spend at least 3 nights in the city and 3 nights at Hillside.

A very warm welcome and every assistance given to help us enjoy our stay.”
We booked this hotel so that we could spend a few days living and walking in the surrounding jungle and see some of the local villages. We had read that it was not easy to get there since taxi drivers in Luang Prabang often cannot find it. Therefore we arranged for the owner to collect us from our hotel in Luang Prabang town centre. We loved the location, completely away from the hustle and bustle of the town. We were given an exceptionally warm welcome and service second to none by Pietre the French Manager of the resort from when we first arrived until the time we left. If you are used to luxury and prefer sitting around a pool sunbathing then this is probably not the place for you but if you like a bit of walking activity then this is the place. My husband and I went for several walks. We went to the hidden waterfall and saw the organic produce raised there and then sampled it at the end of our walk in the little outdoor cafe there. We thought this was a lovely place and something that most local people seemed to have a hand in running which clearly provided jobs for the local economy which is good. The people were so friendly to us the only 2 Europeans eating in their cafe. The centre has not been opened long but is well worth a visit. Our second walk took us in the opposite direction from Hillside to other waterfalls. This walk is not for the faint hearted, (Pietre gave us his maochete to cut back foliage should we need to). We also had a way marked map again supplied by Pietre . The jungle grows quickly but thankfully my husband has a sense of direction like that of a homing pigeon. and although there is a cafe close to one of the two, there was no cook or chef and the only refreshements were either bottled water or bottled beer from a ' run down' fridge. Essentially we thought the restaurant was permanently closed down as there was nothing to show that it was open at any time. Our other walks were around local villages also from a way mar

Awesome getaway from stress ”
The resort is very nice, 12 km approx from town. The facilities are ok, nice swimming pool and great staff, always doing their best to make us feel comfortable. WiFi is only available at reception and is quite slow, and the food is average. Room is very clean, and the bathroom could be nicer.

Sad we missed the sunshine, but didn't spoil our stay”
This place was the perfect final stop in our Laos trip, to just unwind and relax in the mountains. We were collected from our previous hotel by the host, who was very welcoming, and we were driven up to the resort on the bumpy climbing road. On arrival, unfortunately the heavens opened for unusual wet few days in the middle of the dry season, which meant we were confined to indoor activities, so made use of the board games and took the time to snuggle up and read on the balcony of our bungalow overlooking the mountains. The views, even in the rain, were stunning. Food at the resort was good. Breakfast was very tasty, as was the morning coffee. We had the sandwiches for lunch, with french fries which were great. Highly recommend the red curry - delicious! Perfectly accompanied by red wine. The room was clean, well presented with rustic Laotian style. Wooden furniture, an 'outdoor' feel bathroom, and balcony with lounger. No wifi in rooms, just in the restaurant area, which was fine for us and great to escape online stuff for a while. The pool area looked lovely, although the weather prevented us from enjoying it, but we still managed to spend some time on the sofa area under the thatched roof gazebo, which was very tranquil and cosy in the cool weather. The hosts offered advice for various walking tours, which we did the short 30 min route (in a short break from the rain) up to a view point overlooking Luang Prabang, which was beautiful. Worth bringing some warm clothing for here as it can get cold in the evenings. We took the airport transfer for $25, which was an early start, and coffee was much appreciated! Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are very grateful to our hosts. Perfect peace and quiet needed to relax before heading home. Thank you!

Wonderful location, in the jungle, with very good facilities”
We stayed 5 days at this lovely place. It is half hour from Luang Prabang. With the shuttle service it is easy to go to town. The location is perfect. The pool is great, the stafff very friendly and the food is very good. Hillside offers a map with all kind of (half)day trekkings you can do, or only 1-2 hours. It is difficult to find something negative about this resort. One thing...the walls are little thin, it makes it little noisy.

Tranquil quiet getaway in the mountains ”
This place is great location for those looking for a quiet getaway. Completely tranquil surroundings based in the mountains. Really great hikes with beautiful waterfalls nearby, and an awesome dog called Buddy who will even guide the way. Great food, nice pool, and lovely staff. They even have a sauna, although we didn't get around to using this facility. Definitely recommend!
