It has since been transformed into a sanctuary for those wishing to experience peaceful temples, stunning scenery, blue lagoons, incredible mountains, and lush countryside. And there are so many ways to explore this hidden gem, whether by bicycle, by motorbike, by boat or even by hot air balloon.

Places You Must Visit When Staying in Your Perfect Hotel in Vang Vieng Laos

When you book a stay in a hotel in Vang Vieng Laos through us, you will find adventure is quite literally on your doorstep. This tiny town is surrounded by rice fields, limestone mountains and caves, waterfalls, and ancient Buddhist temples. Secret Retreats provides only the best places to stay in Vang Vieng and through them, you and your family will experience the real magic of Southeast Asia. Be sure to ask the Secret Retreats team, or the staff at your Vang Vieng boutique resort about the stunning Kaeng Nyui waterfall. A thirty-minute scenic drive through villages, farms, and unspoiled nature will have you cooling off in crystal-clear waters. Or take the short journey from your resort in Vang Vieng to the picturesque village Ban Pha Tang where you will marvel at the natural beauty of the impressive jungle-covered limestone karsts. The serenity of the colourful Wat Pho Karm Chai Mong Kol temple can be found close to the river and is well worth a visit.

If relaxing in nature is your thing, why not pack your swimsuit and a towel and book a trip through your riverside boutique hotel Vang Vieng to Blue Lagoon 1 and the incredible Phu Kham Cave? Luxuriate in the turquoise waters and enjoy the rope swings before taking a short hike to the cave where you can light candles and incense beside the reclining image of the Buddha. Blue Lagoon 3 is slightly further out, but worth the extra effort as it is often quieter, and the surrounding scenery even more incredible.

Book Your Perfect Riverside Boutique Resort Vang Vieng with Secret Retreats

Vang Vieng lies on the idyllic Nam Song River and booking a riverside boutique resort Vang Vieng is the ideal way to enjoy views across this majestic waterway. Vang Vieng was once a pull for hedonistic travellers wanting to drift down the river in rubber tubes, stopping off to drink in riverside bars. However, for safety reasons this activity has been curtailed. Those seeking adventure on the water can still book a kayaking tour through their river view hotel Vang Vieng. This is the perfect way to enjoy a morning or afternoon deep in the heart of nature while navigating some small rapids. Although many of the bars may have gone, those that remain are happy to serve up a refreshing drink, and Vang Vieng has numerous restaurants serving a wide variety of cuisines for when you return to town. Formerly a French colonial retreat, you can still find western fare and a good bottle of wine alongside fabulous Laotian and excellent Thai street food.

The Best Time to Book Your Resort in Vang Vieng Through Secret Retreats

We recommend you book your resort in Vang Vieng between March and October when the rice fields will be lush and verdant, and the waterfalls will be flowing. However, if you prefer cooler temperatures and want to avoid the rain, then you might want to talk to us about reserving a room in a river view hotel Vang Vieng sometime between October and March. This is the dry season in Laos and the waterfalls might be more of a trickle, but there is still plenty to see and do. Why not escape the heat of the day with a trip to Tham Chang Cave? A short walk from town across an impressive orange bridge, the cave is accessible after a climb up some stone steps. The interior, with its stalactites and stalagmites, is gorgeously lit and there are some stunning views from the cave’s entrance.

Booking the Best Places to Stay in Vang Vieng is Easy Through Secret Retreats

The Secret Retreats team has in-depth knowledge of the best places to stay in Vang Vieng and is on hand to answer any questions you might have about your trip to Laos.

We are here to take care of every aspect of planning your Laos adventure and will be there for you every step of the way.
