The guest house is wonderful and an easy shuttle to main part of Luang Prabang. Perfect place to start a Laos holiday, beautiful room and river view. The owners were friendly and so helpful with bookings for day trips and onward journey. If you want somewhere out of the main tourist area, this is for you. We used the shuttle service but there are bicicyles available. We were in Laos before the lockdown and major travel restrictions came into force. felt safe.

Staff were amazing. Well trained in customer service, pleasant and helpful. Front desk staff fluent in English. They even invited guests to join their staff party. I'm not exactly sure how they did it but they always knew us even with different staff working. You can tell staff get along well and enjoy their jobs. Facilities were great along with beautiful grounds and views of river and local farm life. It was enjoyable stay and great place to relax.

Luang Prabang early Dec 2019 is probably our favourite location during our 9 week trip through Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos & Thailand. Bustling local night market, plentiful historic & ornate Wats and an amazing experience walk with elephants through the forests with the superb caring conservation group MandaLao with offices on the Luang Prabang high street. Thongbay Bunglaows overlooking the picturesque meandering river is a gem with superb food caring attentive staff & the gardeners deserve a special mention for their creative impecable gardens, Wonderful experience highly recommended

There is a reason this guesthouse gets such a high rating. It is an enchanting tropical retreat with lush vegetation, beautiful spacious and well-appointed bungalows and a wonderful staff. Lai was especially welcoming, personable and helpful. On our recent two month trip through SE Asia we stayed at about 20 different hotels and this was one of our favorites. And Thongbay had the best breakfast of them all!

My 4 night stay at ThongBay Guest House in January 2020 was one of the highlights of my trip to SE Asia. It was a surprise to find such lush gardens and tranquil setting so close to the main tourist area of the city. The breakfast (most especially the mango pancakes) was outstanding and the shuttle to and from the town center were especially appreciated. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and courteous. Thank you for the yellow and orange good blessings bracelet! I highly recommend staying at ThongBay, you will not be disappointed.
