Eden de Vang Vieng Hotel

And Bungalow (2.5 / 5)

Eric Molle' is recognized as the leader of Sofitel Hotels in L’s-Choat, Laos. And is well respected by tourists and locals alike. So, when it came to choosing a luxury hotel in Vang Vieng, Eric was the logical choice.

The Eden De Vang Vieng was built in 2009 with a design that was influenced by the small river that doubles as the property’s swimming pool.

This to me is a nice upgrade from the standard hotel rooms in Vang Vieng. It provides room for people to relax and unwind after a long day of tubing and exploring the hundreds of caves around Vang Vieng! As an added bonus, the pool is right over the river itself so it's a lot of fun to jump into when you've had enough of the tubing!

The staff of Eden de Vang Vieng Hotel was very helpful and friendly. The rooms have a lot of character and are clean as well as comfortable. You can feel safe here with no worries about pick-pockets. I don't like to have to carry around a lot of money while staying in a new city so I was glad I didn't have too.

So, if you're looking for a luxurious hotel out of Vang Vieng, Eden is a great choice!

Villa Nam Song

The Villa Nam Song is secluded in the mountains near Vang Vieng. The villa is great for couples as it is situated within a private area less than a 30 minute walk from Vang Vieng town and probably the best thing about this place is that you can enjoy your own private pool.

The Villa is set amongst coconut trees and has an amazing location for watching the sunset. Villa Nam Song has a swimming pool, two garden ponds (one large and one small) and a large heated pool which is great for enjoying the cool Laotian evenings.

On the ground floor of Villa Nam Song you will have a dining area and a large bedroom which includes a king size bed, two twin beds and a sofa, and a bathroom (complete with shower and toilet). The upper level consists of a roof terrace with a dining table, seating and pool table.

the swimming pool and gardens provide relaxing backdrop for guests to enjoy Laotian cuisine from one of the many adjoining local restaurants. Villa Nam Song has indeed been designed as a comfortable retreat for those wishing enjoy Laotian culture, relax and enjoy the tropical environment with its laid back cultural vibe and charm..

Magic Monkey Garden

A short 20 minute tuktuk ride out of Vang Vieng, this place has a lot to offer. It’s a huge complex, and it houses a lot of different eco-camps, guesthouses and hostels.

The backpacker guesthouses and hostels in particular are superb. There’s plenty of space to spread out, and the meals are excellent. All guesthouses are clean and offer great customer service.

Maylay Guesthouse

Number 5 on the list is a great and affordable place to stay in Vang Vieng. I stayed here for 3 days and quite liked it. The location of the guesthouse is just a 10 minute walk to the center of town. The price was also excellent, one of my best bargains of the trip. The good thing about this guesthouse is that it is in a quiet location, but you are still very close to everything, which is great if you want to stay in town but not in a noisy area. A private bathroom was available in a separate room with a small balcony.

This guesthouse is quite basic, so if you are an ultra modern traveller then a place with a TV and a pool on-site may not be the best place for you. This guesthouse is also not a lot of people in the past have used the air-con as there was a fan instead. The owners were extremely friendly and welcoming and there was a lot of space where you could chill and relax. During the night people were generally quiet and mainly went to bed at around 10pm. I would highly recommend it for those who like the simplicity of living in Vang Vieng.
