Villa Nam Song

Charming, but slightly overpriced

Photo of Villa Nam Song, Riverside. , Vang Vieng

What we say: 3.5 stars

Set in an immaculately manicured garden, this cute riverside hotel is a pleasant higher-end place in Vang Vieng. The exteriors are painted cheerful tropical salmon pink while the interiors are subtle, simple but elegant, with dark hardwood floors and furniture, crisp white sheets and silk pillowcases. They also have modern comforts like air-con, hot water and minibar fridge.

The grounds are set on a mini-promontory and have a panoramic view of the Nam Song best appreciated from the comfort of one of the loungers with sun umbrellas set up near the riverbank. As this is where kayaking trips end, you’ll have some free entertainment, or if watching people in kayaks accidentally tip over gets too boring, retreat to the rattan chair on your shaded balcony with a book.

The on-site restaurant is yet another great riverside spot, especially to enjoy their well executed European and Lao fare. Staff are professional and, with only 16 rooms, they make an effort to impress their guests. In the past Villa Nam Song enjoyed positive reviews in magazines like Conde Nast, and for a while it was one of the best in Vang Vieng. But it is looking slightly weathered and now there is competition with newer hotels that outshine it. Not surprisingly, their published rates have fallen in recent years making it more reasonably priced than it used to be and overall still recommendable.

To find Villa Nam Song, take the steep dirt path across from Primary School leading down towards the river.
