Good old fashioned Asian hospitality!”
If you would like to experience authentic Laos countryside life and hospitality go to Nam Ou. Our family stayed in Nam Ou for 6 nights. We stayed in one of the superior double villas. The villas are made of Rose wood,with high ceilings and all are tastefully decorated . All the villas have balconies facing the Nam Ou River. The beds are large and comfortable and there is strong water pressure and hot water. (Thank goodness as we did not know Laos temperature could drop to 10 degrees in the evening during winter!) We were travelling with our 4 and 10 year old daughters and we thought they would be bored but we were able to relax, visit Luang Prabang and the villages along Nam Ou and the Mekong River. The resort guide took us by boat to authentic Lao villages along the Nam Ou and Mekong River with absolutely no tourists but us. The villagers were very friendly. We enjoyed an afternoon with the elephants in the resort. There was a baby (9month old) elephant and she was very amusing. There is WIFI only in the common areas like the pool, restaurant/lobby which was a good break from constant use of electronic devices. The resort is located 35 kilometres from Luang Prabang City centre but the hotel arranged a vehicle and a driver for us for a reasonable price. Mr Outsama, the hotel manager was very helpful, kind and sincere. He speaks English, French and Lao. Breakfast is very good (a la carte). Allocate an hour for breakfast (there is no point in rushing the staff) and enjoy its beautiful views of the river and the mountain. The restaurant serves delicious Lao dishes at reasonable prices. Service is always with a smile. They could have included a few Western dishes for those longing for a change from Asian food.
Didn't want to leave.”
After 7 days in Luang Prabang and into my 6th week in SE Asia, I thought t was time to get some peace a quiet. If you look at the photographs either from the management or guests, I would say they could never give you an idea of the real beauty of this hotels location. On arrival I was greeted by Thanong sack and Thavin, who gave me the good news that I had been upgraded from a Junior Riverside Suite to a full stand alone villa, looking over the beautiful Nam Ou River. The standard of the villas are very high and their positions are private and peaceful. During the day, after a very good breakfast cooked to order. You could choose to rest by the infinity pool overlooking the river or choose to take advantage of the twice daily free shuttle in to LP city. Pedal bikes were also provided free of charge if you were feeling energetic. There are also excursions available via the hotel to various places of interest. I chose to take a trip on the river to the Buddha caves and a river village specialising in local crafts and weaving silk and cotton items. These items were a fraction of the price of equivalent goods in the city.. My trip on the river was was made very special by my guide and all round top man Phonsack. He had great knowledge of the area and villages but also was able to give me more general information on Laos. I would like to thank all of the staff who made my stay very memorable. They are all to a man/woman fantastic. Thank you Nam Ou Riverside from Villa G7.
SUPERB ! I wish i could go come back again”
We spent 3 nights in this resort and we loved everything about it . Such a wonderful and peaceful place . The room are huge and spotless with a comfortable bed . We stayed in superior villa which has a large terrasse facing the mountains and the Nam Ou River . So relaxing . Amazing infinity swimming pool with a view on the mountains and the river . The staff is very hepful and try their best to make you feel comfortable The resort is offering a lot of activities but unfortunately most of them do not suit to a 5 years old kid . We did spend half day at the elephant farm and had a nice ride . We also had a trip on the boat to visit the nearby villages . My daughter enjoyed the both activities and was sad to leave as she made new friends in the village . Lao people are amazingly heartful and generous , they are not rich but they will share with you with a big kindly smile . I hope to go back to Laos very soon, very authentic country. Go to Laos it s an amazing country with amazing people and spend some days at Nam ou riverside you will not regret it .
Nam Ou - Is The Greatest!”
Nam Ou offered everything that I was looking for, peace, tranquility, beautiful scenery, more than fantastic friendly staff and with the addition of 9 elephants in the adjoining property I felt as if I was in heaven! I had a room with large balcony facing the river, more than enough space for 2 people let alone 1 solo traveller like myself, so I was well spoilt. I was travelling out of season and so in fact I had the whole place to myself - 16 staff, 9 elephants and me!!! What a luxury! In some places this could prove to be uncomfortable but not at Nam Ou, everyone was so warm and friendly, in fact I hope we do stay in touch and remain friends, I can't wait for my next visit - and to show my friends! If there was any negative it would be that staying in the resort for a number of days and with no restaurants within easy reach, one does become a little tired of the choosing from the same menu. I suggest taking a few nibbles with you when you go there so you have some of your favourite tit bits.
Remote and relaxing ”
If you are looking for a bit of luxury and remoteness then this is the place for you ! We wanted a few days of doing nothing away from the hustle and bustle of Luang Prabang and found it here on the Nam Ou river ! The rooms are really comfortable and spacious, we booked a twin and got a room with 2 very comfortable double beds ! The restaurant is very good and not overly expensive, you really have to eat at the restaurant as there is nothing else around. The breakfast which was included was excellent and bountiful ! There is a nice pool and plenty of peace and quiet ! There is a shuttle that takes you into town a couple of times a day. We stayed in Luang Prabang for 3 days and then 2 days at Nam Ou Riverside so it was a good combination.
Dear Fiona Greeting from Namouriverside Hotel & Resort Thank you very much for your visiting and very good comment hope to see you next time Thank you Best regards Phonesack( Supervisor Management)
Welcome to Laos!”
Me and my girlfriend stayed here on our first night in Laos. It was one of the greatest experiences of our trip around south east asia. We were greeted with the warmest hospitality from the staff and the room we stayed in was immaculate and had amazing views of the mountains. What really made the experience truly special was the extended hospitality of one of the managers, Sai. After greeting us and having a short conversation about our travels, Sai decided to take us on a locals tour around Luang Prabang. It was one of the best nights of our life and really made an impact on the rest of our days in Laos. Thank you Sai ( Tiger ) and the amazing staff at Nam Ou Riverside for the unforgettable stay!
Nice getaway from Luang Prabang”
We had a nice family time during our 2-night stay at Nam Ou Riverside Resort. Location is good, rooms are quite big and well equipped and swimming pool was a delight. Staffs were very kind and helpful in many ways. This is definitely far from Luang Prabang but a nice place for whom wants to have some relax time away from the crowd. A spa with massages would be a great addition to the hotel, the only thing really missing during our stay!
I had a fantastic holiday at Nam Ou. It is in a wonderful setting on the banks of the Nam Ou river. You can watch the river float by from the restaurant or your accommodation or walk along the river banks. The staff are very helpful and charming they do their best to make you welcome. They have two elephants, a mother and her baby, here. They are healthy and well cared for. There is an opportunity to ride them if desired. The swimming pool is a decent size and there are sun loungers to relax. I was lucky enough to get upgraded and the villas are amazingly luxurious, beautiful wooden floors, jacuzzi bath and outside shower and a lovely balcony to watch the sunset-Paradise. The walkways are trellised with bougainvillea hanging down. The tours are reasonably priced and worthwhile. The food is mainly simple Laos food but delicious and there is a good choice of breakfast.
We enjoyed our stay at Nam Ou very much. They picked us up from the airport for a reasonable cost and when we arrived, we were impressed with the size and condition of our room. It felt like we were being spoiled. The elephant sanctuary next door was a terrific experience and is highly recommended. Two negatives for us were: a) No TV (it would have been nice to have something to watch in the evenings as there really was nothing else to do); b) food - meals were alright, but there were no snack options so we got very hungry at night. Overall, we loved our stay at Nam Ou and we would highly recommend people spend at least part of their stay in LP in this resort! You won't regret it.
We love Nam Ou Riverside! living in Luang Prabang, it is one of our favorite places to escape to on the weekends. The value for your money is incredible. It quite a drive from the airport, they do offer a pricey shuttle service, so maybe better if you have your own transportation. The area is absolutely beautiful though, and the staff is always very attentive and friendly to our every need. AND BEAUTIFUL BATHTUBS with beautiful views! a rare find here in Laos! great swimming pool. great restaurant. We will be back here again and again!
Brittany Greeting from management at Namouriverside Hotel Thank you very much for your comment, we do hope to meet you again for next time Thank you Best regards Phonesack Soutthiphone Supervisor Management
Great place to stay”
Our stay at Nam Ou was great. We were picked up in Luang Prabang by shuttle bus and driven to resort where we were greeted by Outsama the general manager of resort who made us feel very welcomed. We were given an upgrade which was terrific .Purroom overlooked the river magnificent .The staff were very friendly and helpful.Outsama arranged for us to go to the elephant park which was associated with the resort had a great morning feeding going for ride and bathing the elephants ,he also arranged a trip down the river to visit some local village people.It was agreat stay here,would thoroughly recommend this resort.It is agreat place to base yourself as the shuttle bus goes into Luang Prabang several times a day and they will also organise trips for you.
Very secluded, spacious rooms, lovely grounds ”
We were the only people for 2 nights at the hotel in May. The hotel is very secluded and remote (45 min from Luang Prabang), but since we rode our own scooter out there it was perfect for us as we could explore the area on our own. The rooms are spacious and clean. The pool area was lovely, and the views over the Nam Ou river were sublime from the restaurant. Being the low season we got an incredible internet deal and found the place to be of great value. Really lovely place, just be sure you are aware that it is way out there on it's own (something we were searching for).
Dear guests Greeting from Namouriverside Hotel & resort Thank you very much for your comment Phonesack(Mr) Supervisor management
stunning location beautiful rooms”
Our stay here was memorable, a warm welcome from the manager and our rooms were a delight (we came back for a second visit) The location is stunning on the banks of the Nam Ou river overlooking the mountains, A complete getaway next to unspoilt local villages,we highly recommend this resort.
By the river of Nam Ou......”
We had a great stay at the resort. Our rooms/suites overlook the Nam Ou River, so in the night the sound of the river serenades us as we relax and sleep. Located about 1 hour away from the city center, the resort is a sure bet for peeps looking for a beautiful and quite getaway from their busy lives. There are free shuttles provide by the hotel to the city, so not to worry about being disconnected from the city. The hotel staffs were extremely helpful and kind. So don't forget to tip them when you check out of the resort ya!
When you need a vacation from the vacation ”
I came here looking for some R&R and found it in this well-built resort set on the beautiful Nam Ou river about half-way between LP and Nong Khiaw. I came back to LP well-rested and relaxed after three nights doing nothing except swim and eat. I was fortunate enough to be there when two friends/consulting managers of the owner were visiting and I really enjoyed getting to know them. It just made my time there so much the better. I'm not sure how I would have felt had it just been me and the regular staff. Some are genuinely friendly, but I did not appreciate the attempt to charge me 25 USD for the transfer from LP and other such behavior. One other complaint was the lack of WiFi in the rooms. Overall, I had an enjoyable stay - very peaceful and relaxing.
Dear Jackie Greeting from Namouriveside Hotel & resort Thank you very much for your comment Phonesack Southiphone
Very peaceful riverside bungalows”
The bungalows at Nam Ou are very large and well appointed, and the owner was very friendly to us, making sure that we were well taken care of. The resort is about 45 minutes from Luang Prabang, so you must contact them before you arrive to arrange a pick up, as none of the local drivers knew where it was. The owner advised us that he hopes to make this free in the future. The resort is in a good location for walking, kayaking and cycling, and the owner told us that he hoped to have equipment on site for this in the future. As he didn't yet have them, he kindly organised a private cycling and kayaking tour for us through his tour company. The swimming pool was not completed when we stayed there.
stay at Nam Ou Riverside resort was peaceful ”
Our stay at Nam Ou Riverside Resort was very pleasant and peaceful. The Manager Uttusman and his assistant Leh were very welcoming and helpful. Only one draw back is that this resort is far (approx 40mins) from the airport, and the city of Louang Prabang. So it is recommended for a 2-3day stay and for someone looking for peace and quiet and not action - for which you need to stay in Louang Prabang City. Also make sure you request for airport shuttle transfers (costs US$250) especaially if you are arriving late at night, as you need to pass through a lot of forrest roads before reaching the resort.
Perfect getaway spot - very quiet and peaceful”
We got a fantastic deal on Agoda and an upgrade on arrival to a river front suite. It t was clearly under occupied with only a few other guests in the 3 nights we spent there. We had 4 nights in a Luang Prabang before and decided to head off for a few days of lazing around a pool. It was perfect for what we wanted. We used the free bikes to cycle to Pak Ou caves and just quietened our minds. The mornings in Jan are cool - perfect for cycling or hiking - and the afternoons glorious sunshine. Our room was beautiful and well equipped with so much room. It was cleaned daily. The restaurant was quiet with few guests but wonderful food at very good prices too. We recharged here and had a wonderful stay. I would recommend it.
Dear Nicola Greeting from Namouriverside Thank you very much for your comment, hope to see you again Phonesack Southiphone Supervisor Management
The place is incredible! It's far away from the city so you have to schedule an airport shuttle pickup with the resort ahead of time. It's in a small village by the river outside Luang Prabang. It's nice to get out of the city and enjoy this zen garden resort after tourist destinations each day or just stay for a couple of days to relax. The environment was amazing!! Looking at the mountains, watching the stars at night and swimming in the pool were some of the highlights. You can also walk by the riverside. The restaurant offered breakfast, which was enough and you can also order food and drinks for lunch and dinner. The resort has a shuttle that goes to the city center at 10am comes back at 4pm. They also offered paid transportation services for preferred times. It's far but it's worth every penny.
Superb but a bit remote”
Very relaxing stay, exceptional view over the river from the bungalows, very clean. I would recommend this hotel for people who want to relax. It is a bit remote and there are only 2 time slots for the free van from and to luang prabang. It is near Pak Ou caves (the hotel offers a private boat ride and a village visit for a decent price). On the improvement side: the food menu is small which would be a problem for long stays, the free shuttle is not at the best time of the day and the "taxi" is expensive (and not always available). The view from the bungalow is exceptional. The staff is extremely nice and helpful.
Free Wi-Fi in all rooms!
