After quite a lot of research to find the perfect hotel in Vang Vieng Laos, I can tell you for sure, it’s not easy. Not because there’s nothing to chose from, but because the quality and experience you get when arriving at your Vang Vieng guesthouse, luxury hotel or budget hostel quite often ends up being different than expected.
Vang Vieng is a place who used to have a lot of tourists, mainly backpackers partying hard there and life was great. But now, a few years after the famous tubing parties have been shut down, Vang Vieng is different.
It’s a quiet town with not so much going on (apart from excellent nature, that’s worth seeing!) and therefore seems like the hotel sector and service quality is dying out too. However, among lots of mediocre places, there are a few that are awesome and worth picking as the right Vang Vieng accommodation for you.
We researched it, we went to Vang Vieng and saw it. And now we’re ready to save you all the trouble and suggest the best places where to stay in Vang Vieng Laos!

◽THE BEST STYLISH VANG VIENG BOUTIQUE HOTELS
Vieng Tara Villa
A boutique hotel in Laos, especially in Vang Vieng is not what everyone is used to everywhere in the world. Here in Laos boutique style comes in a form of exotic bungalows close to nature with a hint of luxury. Vieng Tara Villa is a nice example of it.
Offering a mountain or river view bungalows, this hotel gives you a chance to watch the morning mist floating over the mountains or the lush green rice while sipping your morning tea or coffee on the terrace. The rooms are clean, with a beautiful bathroom and AC. While you’ll feel like you’re in the countryside away from everything, the city center is only 5-minute walk away.
The only downside – WiFi is not the best. But sometimes is even for the best, if you’re looking to fully immerse yourself in nature.
The prices start at around 50$.
Phoxay Ngam Resort

The Green View Resort is surely one of the most unique places where to stay in Vang Vieng. Even though it’s located a bit outside the city, it’s a great choice because of the location.

The staff and service are great and thoughtful, making you feel at home. Rooms are decorated in a simple Lao style, but at this resort, it’s all about the surrounding nature, not the inside. Great breakfast, lunch, and dinner are available at the resort.
