Riverside Boutique Resort is a luxury resort located on the banks of the Nam Song River with stunning views over the limestone mountains of Vang Vieng. The property is set within a tropical garden and organized around a central swimming pool. Despite its location in the quietest part of town, this hotel is within easy reach of the center and provided as a perfect departure point for excursions in the countryside. Riverside Boutique Resort is known to be the first high-end hotel that systematically celebrates the exceptional cultural and natural diversity of Laos. Renowned artists have contributed to the unique beauty of the resort, showcasing a different perspective of the country’s splendors and traditions. Each of the units is designed through inspirations from eight ethnic groups. Although the hotel reflects the wealth and elegance of its Lao heritage, it also strives to provide international-level facilities and services.

Little Heaven in Vang Vieng”
We had a beyond fantastic stay in the resort. Resort staffs were extremely friendly and always with a smile. They were even sweet enough to wish my boyfriend happy birthday and even baked him a birthday cake and sang him birthday song! We were totally surprised, in the most delighted way of course. I would rate the service 12 out of 10! The hotel itself offers breathtaking panoramic view of Vang Vieng riverfront. We just sat in the garden and enjoyed the view. Simple yet magical moment. The room is spacious and beautiful with high ceiling. The bathroom has got everything you could ask for. We had very pleasant stay here! Thank you so much Riverside Boutique Resort!
Best place in town”
You don't come to Vang Vieng for the town. In short, it's a dump. You come for the scenery and activities. So if you are not interested in either, and are seeing Vang Vieng as a useful place to break your journey between Vientiane and Luang Prabang, do yourself a favour and fly instead. It will be quicker, cheaper and a lot more comfortable because the roads are grim. But if you want to see the Karst scenery and / or partake in some of the adventure activities, then Riverside Boutique is a good place to stay. It's comfortable, has nice gardens, a good and not overly expensive restaurant, and very helpful staff. Be aware though that there is some noise from boats on the river. Morning and evening you will find a series of noisy long-tail speedboats whizzing past, each with two people in, as another Korean tour group charges up and down the river.
One of the best hotels ever stayed in ”
Riverside Boutique Hotel is a rather new hotel in Vang Vieng. It is situated beside the paytoll bridge with great views on the opposite limestone mountains. The hotel is a bit remote from Vang Vieng's guest houses which I found a big plus. It has a particularly relaxing ambiance. The room was very spacious with a lovely terrace. I really enjoyed spending some time in the evenings on the terrace. The hotel staff comes from Vang Vieng. Although they are still in the learning process, they always stand ready to help. The breakfast was average. Although the hotel is rather expensive for Vang Vieng, I would not hesitate to return.
Very nice stay in this romantic hotel”
Very good stay at Riverside Boutique Resort. Very nice room with great view to the swimming pool, river and mountain. Attentive and very friendly staff. Remark: Maintenance check of the room should be done more frequently as the door of the bathroom was not easy to lock and the entrance door of the room did not accept the key card when we first passed it in the slit, we had to enter the key card many times to unlock the door. But except that, everything was perfect and we really had a great stay at this resort which must be the best one in Vang Vieng. Breakfast buffet and location of the restaurant and its view are awesome!
Only stay here!”
We have stayed in two other places in Vang Vieng and it darn near ruined our trip until we go into the Riverside Boutique Resort. The staff went out of their way to make our trip worth all those hours on airplanes and buses. We found lousy service in most of the town until we got to the Riverside. Don't try and save a few buck per night because you will regret it. Even the breakfast was outstanding and the Laos staff were not rude like the others in town. Bring your lover, your friend, or your family and you will NOT be disappointed!
Luxury Room with a Fantastic View”
The design of each room in this luxury resort are inspired by one of the eight ethnic minority groups found in Laos (Akha, Hmong, Katu, Lanten, Lao Lum, Tai Daeng, Tai Lue and Yao.) . Each room also have a card describing the profile of the ethnic group it is designed after. I had a Katu room. The rooms are very stylishly designed and is very comfortable and clean. The balcony also offers a magnificent view of the rock formations across the river from the hotel. The hotel also has a very nice garden and swimming pool. Relaxing in the pool and looking at the view of the rock formation is relaxation to the max. The hotel also provides bicycle to explore the area around the hotel. i highly recommend getting a bicycle to ride to the area across the bridge next to the hotels to explore the area as it offers impressive views and great photos shot opportunities of the limestone formations and rice paddies. The hotel charges USD 6 for a normal bike and USD 7 for a mountain bike if you book the hotel through other sources like agoda.com but offers the bikes for free if you book directly through the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel. It is one of the best resort i ever stayed at and the price i paid for such a beautiful hotel with such stylish room is very very reasonable. I will definitely stay here again if i visit vang vieng again.
An amazing property next to the riverbank”
This is a real hotel to relax and spend the day in the pool. Next to the river and with an amazing view of the mountains. The rooms are spacious and well decorated, and the bed very comfortable. We stayed in the first floor in one of the buildings towards the swimming pool, with a lovely terrace. We called a couple days before to ask some questions about local tours and how to take advantage of our day there and once we arrived they had already an idea and were ready to set up a tour around Vang Vieng with a reasonable price. The personnel is well trained and quite polite, also efficient in every area. If we had known about beforehand how nice was the hotel and Vang Vieng, for sure we had stayed at least another night or two.
The most amazing view”
This hotel was amazing. Despite the fact that it rained from I came to I left it was a truly amazing experience to be in Vang Vieng and at The Riverside Boutique Resort. The view I had from my balcony is hard to beat... I could sit there for hours just watching the river pass by and the sky formations change around the amazing karsts. Highly recommended. I hope to come back.
Best location with a great pool area and wonderful views”
This property made our Vang Vieng stay great. A little oasis in a small village in the best location. We loved this property, the staff were amazing, Singto in the restaurant was lovely, all the reception staff were amazing and could not be faulted. The room was well appointed with a lovely view. The garden and pool area were the nicest in central Viang Vieng, we kayaked the river and this confirmed it. The breakfast was outstanding with a lovely setting. Do yourself a favour and stay here, it is a lovely resort in a small town. The restaurant menu looked amazing, unfortunately we did not try it, but next time we will. The French influence gives this property an edge.
It doesn't get much better than this!”
Wow! The resort is a holiday in itself; with stunning views from every room, spacious balconies, clean and tastefully designed. Keeping traditional with the decor I think is a lovely touch as everything was beautifully put together and mostly hand made in northern laos which made it feel much more authentic (as opposed to the standard 5* hotels with every room exactly the same becoming very monotonous). They really have more than exceeded my expectations (which were already very high having stayed at the sister hotel in Vientiane). The staff knew us by name immediately and had a incredibly high standard of english and were very welcoming it was as though we were treated like part of their family. Nothing was too much for them to help with. It was very apparent that they all wanted to be there and took pride in the hotel. The location is fantastic as it is far enough away from the bars to ensure peace and quiet of an evening but it is also close enough to walk to any restaurants etc. This is highly recommended from us - if you weren't considering Vang Vieng; you should be now - it is more than worth the trip.
Nice, comfortable hotel with excellent location”
This is one of the newest hotels in Vang Vieng. It is located right on the river and has stunning views of the nearby karst formations. The rooms are comfortable and most appropriate for the non-backpacker in Vang Vieng. It is an easy walk to the central part of the city. The property has a beautiful swimming pool located in the central courtyard. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and gracious. One of the front desk staff even hopped on his motorbike to deliver bus tickets to us at the nearby bus station!
quiet and beautiful hotel near river ”
We stayed two nights at Vang Vieng : Riverside is a very good hotel and new hotel (I think 2011) near river Nam Song with great lanscape view on mountains. Its location is just near toll wood bridge and quite far from Don Khang island and bars... But easy to join these last places by walk. We appreciate : free transfer from bus station (call lobby), good taste and choice at breakfast, good service from Mr. Nouane :-) at lobby; Only bad point (but it is nothing) is to pay for rent bicycles from hotel (6$/day).
excellent staff, great surroundings”
This is by far the nicest resort in vang vieng. We are 3 girls in our twenties so it was nice staying somewhere without backpackers for a change ! We loved every minute in vang vieng and didnt want to leave ! Everything is a short walk away from the resort and the staff are very accomodating. Would reccommend to anyone !
Beautiful surroundings, clean rooms, excellent facilities”
The resort was truly beautiful - right next to the river, surrounded by gardens and mountains as the backdrop scenery .Room was clean and spacious. We received an upgrade to the Deluxe which was a nice touch from the staff. I do think the price is on the expensive side for what you get. It could be Vang Vieng that's the problem though. Overall, I recommend but it did not "Wow" me for the money I paid. It was a nice and very romantic stay!
Amazing Hotel in Beautiful Location”
After coming from luang prabang i stayed at this hotel and after a 6 hrs drive. Entering the hotel was not much to the eye when it came to the reception area. But a big BUT when i then walked to the room the view was amazing of the limestone cliffs and pool from my room. The surrounding and settings of the scenery was breath taking. 10/10 The hotel resturant food was a little pricey but the quality was fantastic . So much so when going around vang vieng in the vening i was left disappointed. And had eaten in the hotel because of the quality. The hotel is perfect for relaxing. Tip Do the hot air balloon ride.
Fantastic hotel with stunning views”
a fantastic hotel with beautiful views of the mountains in vang vieng. the room was beautifully furnished with a very comfortable bed, a bath and everything you need for an enjoyable stay. the staff were so warm and welcoming each time we entered the hotel and were very helpful providing maps, directions and recommendations. the breakfast buffet was delicious with a great choice of food and having breakfast on the restaurant balcony staring at the mountain view was just lovely! the pool is great for cooling off in on a hot day. i would recommend this hotel to anyone.
After seeing the lovelly photo's of this hotel on the web we could only say that they couldn't capture how beautiful the surroundings were. We had only booked two nights in Vang Vieng and in hindsight we wished we had've booked another two or three. Staff were helpful, breakfast had a good selection of fresh and cooked foods. The rooms were spotless and well appointed. The hotel was peaceful and the swimming pool welcome after a busy day in the area. The only problem we encountered were some tuk tuk drivers not finding it as it is a newer hotel in the area.
Best scenery ”
We had an excellent time in Vang Vieng…thanks to this beautiful hotel. We wholly recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a quiet place but near the city. Food in restaurant is great with friendly staffs. We would like to return to this hotel again each time we visit Vang Vieng.
Best hotel in Vang Vieng!”
Fact-It is the best hotel in Vang vieng! Has lovely rooms, the hotel is on the river so has a great view of the river and mountain! The price is only fraction of what you'll pay in other countries. Every staff was great!!!! Attentive and friendly. Hotel is not absolutely in central of the town but is walking distance to everything! You get the convenience and quietness!!
This new hotel has an ideal location right on the river. It's super peaceful and great for those visitors not interested in partaking in any of the craziness that sadly, Vang Vieng has become known for. you can truly enjoy all the beauty that Vang Vieng has to offer from this location.
