Riverside Boutique Resort is ideally located on the bank of the Nam Song River, multi-award winning resort is a luxury hotel with charm and character. It is laid out around one of the most inviting swimming pools to be found in Laos, and offers stunning views of the surrounding forest-clad limestone mountains.
Thirty-four rooms with large balconies are located within the manicured gardens. Each has a stylish and subtly different design that combines exotic wood and rattan furniture, soft furnishings reflecting the traditions of eight Lao ethnic groups, and authentic art and craftwork by local artists and artisans. An herbal spa is also part of the hotel, comprising three traditional pavilions looking over the mountains.
In addition to celebrating the cultural and natural diversity of Laos, the Resort offers all the services required to recover from a day of outdoor activities.
The center of town is a ten-minute walk away, and a small bamboo bridge next to the property leads to a village on the western bank. It is a perfect departure point to explore the countryside on foot or bicycle.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
