This hotel is by the river with great views and away from the very busy noisey strip. The staff were very good and food for dinners and breakfast was goodquality although more expensive than elsewhere. The cabanas are rather tired now and in need of some TLC and the noise from local karaoke was unbearable until the early hours.

We stayed at Ban Sabai for only one night and wish we could stay longer. We arrived quite late but with the hospitality of the staff there made us feel like home and forgot about the long journey from VT to VV. The room is cute and comfy. The light can be brighter in the room but no complain for...

We stayed here for 2 nights to break up the long bus ride between Luang Prabang and Vientiane. The bungalows are very nice with a balcony overlooking the river.

This place is in a great location, right on the river. The rooms are nice but bathrooms are tiny! There is a restaurant/ bar area which overlooks the river and you can spend many hours just chilling out and watching. Would definately stay there again!

I knew Vang Vieng would be full of awful people, but I thought I'd stay here to break up the long bus ride between Luang Prabang and Vientiane (and I'm glad I did - that "VIP" bus was horrible!) If you must stay in Vang Vieng, stay somewhere nice - as the other places will be full of the most...

This was by far our favourite hotel we stayed in in Laos. We had a deluxe room overlooking the pool but all rooms appeared to have a view to the river and the stunning cliffs behind. It is a few minutes walk down one of the main streets which means its close to everything but isn't right in the middle...

The setting is the single most wonderful thing about this hotel. It was heaven to be by the river, especially as evening comes, and away from the rest of the town. The bungalows are very attractive. Perhaps a bit small, especially the bathroom in our cabin, but perfectly fine and attractively decorated. The staff are terrific. They seemed sincerely friendly...
