The hotel has a beautiful setting overlooking the river and mountains. The riverfront rooms are expensive for the fact that they are rather basic e.g. Broken window in the bathroom, no tv or minibar etc... But they do have a lovely deck with a small pool out front. The negative sides were the lack of professionalism by the hotel staff...

Dear Romeo, Thank you for your review and for pointing out what we have to improve. We will check the bathroom window and have it fixed immediately. Regarding the housekeepers, you are right, they should not have been waiting next to the room. They work fix hours and if they were in a hurry to clean your room, it was...

We selected the Ban Sabai on this website and as mentioned in previous reviews this was the right choice in this town. We actually stopped twice one night as we drove up and down to Luang Prabang from Vientiane, and to do this non-stop in one day is no longer a holiday. We booked a deluxe bungalow and it was...

We spend one night here after a tourmenting 5h journey in a non a/c bus from Vientiane. Location is nice, quiet and mostly suitable for older/ peaceful people. Scenery is truly great and you can hear the birds siniging. As for the rooms, they are rather small and the bathroom is an airplane size one :) The next day we...

We stayed here for 2 nights of our honeymoon. The location was great, right on the river and a short walk from everything. The breakfast was fantastic, one of the best we've had on our honeymoon. And there was a lovely little pool. Our bungalow room wasn't great. The cracks in the walls around the windows and hole in the...

Dear Erin, I am glad you enjoyed our swimming pool but It saddens me of course to read that you had a disappointing experience. Regarding the noise, we have made some "Please be quiet" signs for our guard (who do not speak English). He is asked to walk around the resort and do his best to guarantee a quiet night...

I can't tell ou how disappointed I was with this place. If it wasn't for the beautiful mountains and the river right next to the hotel I probably would have walked out and gone somewhere else. We dirt got there the staff were so rude, didn't welcome us, just gave us a key and made us find our own room....

Dear Guest, I am so sorry the hotel wasn’t to your taste. We feel so passionately about wanting everyone of our guests to be happy that it always hurt us when some of our guests don't enjoy their stay with us. Especially, when both guests decide to write two reviews about the same experience, we really feel something went wrong...

When your stuck next to the equivalent of a local farm with a cockerel underneath your room squawking for three hours it's almost impossible to give this place a good review.
