Stephane Vigie, the resorts owner, knew he wanted to exhibit each of Lao’s ethnic groups in the interior design of each suite, and so travelled extensively to stay with 8 different communities and gather up pieces of their handmade textiles, beadwork, and woodwork use in the resorts suites.

The Review

The very essence of Laos is the exceptional diversity of the country, and Riverside Boutique Resort celebrates and promotes this diversity by illustrating each ethnic group within its different suites.  Laos’s artists have contributed their talent throughout the resort to create a unique and authentic atmosphere that allows guests to immerse themselves in Laos culture. Riverside offers the height of sophisticated style in an elegant Laos sanctuary, amid the stunning backdrop of the magnificent and colossal karst mountains. The resort’s reputation as the number one hotel in the Vientiane Province is surpassed by its inspired and unique cultural atmosphere that makes it more than just a hotel, but a museum of Laos hospitality and charm. Suites boast the treasures of each diverse ethnic background alongside all the luxury and home comforts that 21st century travellers invariably have. The “Restaurant du Crabe d’Or,” named after one of Vang Vieng’s most famous caves, offers indoor and outdoor seating so guests can take full advantage of the river view and tropical garden with a magnificent backdrop of the Limestone Mountains. Take a day to simply relax with friends by the beautiful swimming pool whilst sipping one of Riverside’s perfectly prepared cocktails. Escape to this Asian utopia and discover an entire rejuvenation whilst being waited on by the Laos people in this traditional resort.
