Lovely Place ”
We were so pleased with everything, check in was a breeze, the care taker showed us to our room. The premises was beautiful and we absolutely loved how gorgeous the waterfalls were that were literally at our doorstep. We even took a dip, though cold it was refreshing lol You guys I’m not kidding it looks just just like the pictures( well if you come during the right season I presume) me and my boyfriend were over joyed lol a very peaceful stay and yep it was about 9-10 minutes walking to the main attraction. The Kuang Si falls as well as the sunbear sanctuary. Staff was so nice and helped us with everything. They even have a shuttle back to luang prabang city that we utilized at check out. It was so beautiful there I can’t stress it enough.
We chose this homestay on the recommendation of a fellow traveler.”
Pros: The setting is beautiful. You get to walk to the Falls before any other tourist show up. Close to the butterfly park. Rather romantic. Cons: The stairs are treacherous, the plywood is slick as snot, the walkways are slippery. My wife went down hard on her shoulder. The picture was very deceiving. We thought we would have that double bed looking out our window at this idealick water setting., but no that wasn't what we got. They acted like they were doing us a favor by putting us up in the triple room with a queen and two singles. The Queen bed was sooooo Hard, at 1:00 in the morning we each moved to a single bed and slept alone. Some kind of spiders in the ceiling building a nest were dropping things down on the bed and in my wife's hair. The breakfast was mediocre.
Stay away from this place”
By the moment we opened up our room we could see it was very dirty and no one would have moped it for a few days at least. Then we checked the restoom.. it was impossible to use it.. definetely no one cleaned. So i asked the lady to do so.. she came and offered another room. We went there to check and a HUGE spider is laying in the restroom. Then we decided to go to the first room to get our bags and leave. But we had to wait 1 hr since the hotel is far away from the city and there was no one around. In the meantime while we wait in the room, a big RAT gets out under the bed straight to the restoom. What a nightmare ! We then realize theres rat's pop all over the sheet.. disgustinf . It was the most dirty and terrible hotel ever... and they didnt even make any effort. Agoda didnt give me my money back as well even sending them the pictures. They said they could only give us back 10%. Which i dont get it... since it was not our fault . So be away from here.
location is 5 star but the room is damp”
The property has its own waterfalls. A plus. However, by virtue of its location (near the forest) and the vines creeping on top of the cottage, the room is damp. Not ideal to those with allergic rhinitis. The toilet and shower area is very spartan with no hot shower. Owner is warm and speaks good English. Offers a communal dinner which is a good chance to interact with other guests.
Unique location ”
Excellent value for money. Only criticisms were organization of staff -family members obliging helpful but limited in language skills and not always communicating to each other. Will go out of there watt to help and very honest
Vanvisa is what it says "at the falls". It is one of the most beautiful places on earth and worth to stay one or two nigths. As vegeterian eating is not easy and restaurants close very early there.
5 Stars - Just excellent!”
I personally thought this is super excellent. Slightly tough to shower in the morning without hot water, but it'll be part of the experience. Still, 5 out of 5 stars!
Staying in paradise. ”
The guesthouse is near a little village and place right in front of the little waterfall. Perfect view you can stare at all day. And I love the owner's hospitality. They cooked perfect Lao food for dinner and first time i ever tried papaya with passion fruit jam for breakfast. Som tum (spicy papaya salad), grilled chicken and grilled fish is simple but so delicious. But speed of service here is as slow as average in Lao why so hurry it's so comfy there.
absolutely beautiful location”
my short stay at vanvisa at the fall was amazing. I particularly enjoyed my early morning walk to kwangsi fall when no one was there yet..i basically have the fall all to myself. the dinner at the hotel was very good especially the fish aubergine dip. mdm vandara, the owner, is an amzing person I would appreciate a hot shower in the room tho (my room did not have one)..it was freezing cold there.
Very good view location & friendly service”
there is the great location hotel which the kuangsi waterfalls pass through them, also there is the area you can swim there or you just can take a walk about 50 meters to the official entrance of kuangsi waterfalls. you can hear the waterfalls sounds whole time, it likes music sound effect to make you well sleep.
Excellent location and scenery!”
Nice place to stay for a night or two. Nice older lady who I guess is the owner and speaks good English. She was very helpful with tour advice. Was pretty ‘cool’ during my stay and even with 2 quilts we were still cold at night. Recommended due to friendly owner and location.
Room is old and basic. Foods taste good. Nice waterfall. Good staff service.
Excellent adventure resort next to the fallll”
Nice to stay here one night rather than only day trip to the fall
Big pros and cons ”
This is the only guesthouse located right by the Kuang Si falls and it's a huge plus being able to stroll into the park as it opens, beating the crowds. I would recommend it purely on that basis, it's literally a 3 minute walk away but actually it's built over a lower pool that is outside of the park gates but the same amazing blue colour, and most people probably don't even know it's there. BUT: no wifi. Very basic and rustic accommodation. And although there are mosquito screens and nets, there are lots of bugs / ants / spiders in the room. For me it was totally fine and worth it for the location, but I definitely know lots of people who would have been unhappy about it. They provide a nice breakfast of eggs/omelette, baguette, jam and instant coffee.
The place is at the beautiful waterfalls. Only bad thing be prepared to sleep with geckos in your room and big spiders with dim lighting. Worst nights sleep ever. No hot shower even though I booked the deluxe. However if you arrive late you may not be given the room you booked like me. Overall I would recommend this place only to those who truly love nature. Otherwise it would be better to just stay in town and travel to Kuang s
Mr.Nu made sure I was taken care of during my whole stay. He even rescued me from a huge spider in mbathroom”
Need to remember you are in the jungle, mountain.. There will be spiders and such.. it's in a rural area, so no wifi... Which is the best thing ever to get away and actually soak in the beauty God created.
Accommodation to experience nature”
The view of the hostel is awesome. The food in the restaurant is delicious and the breakfast is good. Especially handmade jam was really delicious. However, room was high humidity, and single bed and pillow did not use because there was ant. However, it is worth staying. The starry night is so beautiful. I strongly recommend staying here.
A hidden gem - amazing location ”
Rustic accommodation and beautiful location. Eat on rafts over the stream - slip into the water right next to you and enjoy the cool refreshing water. Swim with the locals and enjoy delicious meals. Enjoy the falls in the quiet of the morning or late afternoon when all of the tourists have left. Fall to sleep hearing the sound of rushing water. A special place to stay.
Wow wow wow x 2”
We enjoyed a night in there , had breakfast and dinner next to the water falls super nice view. Owner is a farmer limited English but he tried his Best to talk with us . Room is inside the garden with a hammock outside. Water falls entrance is 5mins by walk. You should come to visit this nature guest house by the way no wifi in there so you can totally far away from the busy life.
