Riverside Boutique ResortLaos/Riverside+Boutique+Resort
 

The Riverside Boutique Resort is located on the banks of the Nam Song River, near Vang Vieng in the heart of rural Laos. Long a popular choice for adventure seekers and travellers looking to get off the beaten path, Vang Vieng is set in some of Laos’s most stunning countryside. Dreamy karst limestone mountains decorate the horizon, poking out of jade carpets of rice paddy, all edged with the glassy waters of the lazily meandering Nam Song River. Looking for serenity, tranquility, and picture postcard views in every direction? Then look no further than the Riverside Boutique Resort, Vang Vieng Laos!

This delightful Laos boutique hotel houses 34 individually designed rooms and suites. Decorated with traditional touches made by local crafts-folk, with hardwood and rattan furniture, traditional fabrics and pieces from some of the 8 ethnic groups that live in this region, each guest room also has a spacious balcony set to enjoy the views.

The swimming pool offers something for every guest, with shady spots to lounge poolside under mature shade trees, to sunbeds placed for the best of the sun, and a breathtaking view of the mountains across the river that borders the pool and gardens of the Riverside Boutique Resort.

After a day exploring the countryside, on foot, bicycle or perhaps on a guided tour, on returning to the riverside resort head to the herbal spa to relax those aching legs. The Riverside Sala Spa offers a range of traditional therapies, massage and herbal hot-compresses, perfect for helping you relax and unwind.

The Riverside Boutique Resort also features a bar and restaurant, carefully positioned to enjoy the stunning river and mountain views. The menu offers a choice of international and traditional Laotian cuisine, all supported by a full bar and wine list including old and new world wines. And the freshest coffee, sourced from the Boloven Plateau in Laos. The resort is also well equipped for small gatherings, conferences and meetings, at just 3hrs drive it is both close enough to the travel hub of Vientiane and far enough away to assure total privacy and tranquility. With parking on site, 24hr reception, all the conveniences a modern traveller requires and steeped in the old-world charm that Asia’s boutique hotels do best, the Riverside Boutique Resort is the perfect home from home for every occasion when in central Laos.

Starting price: from 90 USD/night

Your Host and The Team


“When my Lao partners and I started developing Riverside Boutique Resort more than 10 years ago, our ambition was to create a simple yet elegant retreat in Vang Vieng for those who wanted to experience the rugged beauty of the Lao countryside, in style. Over time, Riverside Boutique Resort has become much more than that. Our resort has been recognized as the best hotel in the province, and we feel a real sense of responsibility to help promote tourism is a way that is respectful of nature and of local communities. We take every opportunity to celebrate and support Lao traditions and culture. The decor of the guest rooms, for instance, include carefully curated, one-of-a-kind pieces, sourced from the eight different ethnic groups of Central Laos. But it is in our team that we take the greatest pride. Nothing brings us more satisfaction than when guests take note of the dedication and friendliness of the staff. We are grateful that it happens so often! Kop chai lai lai!”
