It's not easy to find it but it's worth while!! We stopped at utopia to have some refreshment during a very hot day . We had a very good mango juice and sticky rice with mango and banana pancake. Good taste! The place is beautiful....More

I went here with a group from my hostel. We had a few drinks here while chilling on the deck near the water. Nice place and kind staff.

It is really nice, every backpacker in Luang Prabang seems to be there every evening. It is not cheap but not extremely expensive either. You even can play beachvolleybal!! The atmosphere is wonderfull.

When I was really getting in the right mood, everyone was more or less kicked out. Of course it is not the owners' fault but government regulations. One day we visited in the afternoon and then you can play some volleyball. However, be careful as...More

We went to Utopia in the evening and ended up staying from about seven until about 10.30pm we loved it so much. The music is relaxing, the mood is perfect and the food is fabulous (strongly recommend the apple, blue cheese, mozzarella and bacon pizza)....More

Thanks for enjoying Utopia's great food and relaxing atmosphere. You have to keep 'service expectiations' in perspective while traveling in Laos. Keep in mind that none of my staff have ever heard of McDonald's, Starbucks, Bob Marley, or The Beatles. They do their best to...More

Come and enjoy relaxing views overlooking the river. We have tropical gardens, river view yoga deck, tiki huts, beach volleyball courts, relaxing thai cushions, sofas, and bar stools. This is a place to come and relax. Enjoy food, drinks, and meet interesting people. Utopia is Zen by Day, Groovy by Night. Every evening we are by far the busiest place in the city. Utopia is a very special and unique place, and our typical customers will come back every day!! Don't wait until your last day to find Utopia.
