Vang Vieng Resort
Attractive, cheap and private
What we say:
A little out of town, the Vang Vieng Resort has large grounds dotted with fragrant trees and ornamental plants and is located in the shade of the mountains. Individual bungalows are well spaced on either side of the Nam Song, with bathroom and hot shower. Those on the right bank have been newly opened by the resort in 2006 after several years of non-use. A distinctive red suspension bridge ensures year-round access to both sides of the river, and also allows visitors to reach the mountains, and the entrance to Tham Chang, a very popular cave. A coffee shop is set on the riverbank, and just outside the grounds a number of local stalls selling papaya salad, snacks and drinks. To get into the centre of town a bicycle or motorbike would be advisable, but this simple, secluded resort is worth the walk.Check rates around Vang Vieng best price guarantee!

I deliberately picked this place outside of the action but within walking distance of town thinking it gave me the best of both worlds. Staff were not particularly friendly or helpful. There is no restaurant on the grounds but across the bridge & down another 100 meters so not much good on those nights you can't face going back into town one more time. And you have to deal with the ''pay 2,000 kip to cross the bridge'' guys every time (not necessary but always had to explain & show your key). Being outside of town didn't help keep the noise at bay: loud music from the picnic grounds across the river till 5 pm, then the karaoke/music from town kicks in at dusk & the sound carries down the river. No ''views'' from the bungalows which weren't anything special combined with the indifferent staff: I wouldn't stay again.

Secluded and scenic
When I stayed here I saw hardly any other guests. A lot of locals come to picnic on the grounds at the weekend. If you're looking for solitude then this place is great... especially early in the morning sitting on a roofed platform next to the river. Ideal for couples. It's about a 10-15 min walk into town or you can hire a tuk tuk doe about a dollar

Quiet, basic, good value
It's a good 15 minute pleasant walk into the centre of town. Bungalows are roomy if looking a bit tired. Staff is friendly. Breakfasts are cheap and good. Shower is extremely hot!! Good value.
