Special ****
Special spot. We changed our plans and left Vientiane a day early, got a rental pick up truck and drove to Nam Ngum lake. Best. Decision. Ever. The area is gorgeous and natural. The hotel is beautiful. The rooms are individual bungalows with private porches. We were on honeymoon and the management went out of their way to help us celebrate by giving us a complementary drink and a room upgrade. The view from the rooms is extraordinary -especially at sunset. The restaurant was very good. Floating swimming pool was really awesome. Do yourself the favor and book for a few nights at the Sanctuary, we wished we could have stayed longer!

Hotel is quite far from vang vieng and requires a hotel shuttle for transport to the city. Breakfast was not good. The room is on the small side and there are bugs and insects. Staff had limited english

Will return
Likely the best place to stay in the area and would stay again. Only critique was smell in the bathroom/shower room. If the fans were off there was a residual smell from the sceptic tank. Not much they could do about it though and with the fans on it was manageable. The room was clean, staff was very pleasant and helpful and we plan to return.

The staff is super friendly and beautiful hotel
The staff was very helpful and friendly all the time ! The hotel is around 20min from the city center by car but the hotel has free shuttle twice a day . The rooms are very clean and big. There are many activities to do : kayak, boats, swimming pool in the river, etc. The hotel also helps you to book the best tours and transport to everything . The food is also nice at the hotel (fried fish with traditional sauce is the best) and if you prefer “regular” food there are good hamburgers and nuggets. In general it was an excellent experience !

6/10 Good

isolation more than sanctuary (potential not met)
I think there is a lot of potential in this resort, but it hasn’t met it. It seems like the bare bone of what it can be. Currently it’s less of a sanctuary and more of an isolation with not much to do. If you are looking for just a clean bed with a nice view, then this is the place for you. For others, it might be better to find something closer to town. drive to main town area is 30 minutes (which is manageable) but the hotel OVERCHARGES for the ride back and forth. Wifi is very weak throughout the resort other than the lobby. First room they put me in had no wifi signal at all. Positives: great view. Clean bed.

Good but not much to do around the resort. The pool was too cold to swim in. The rooms were nice but definitely need to put in shelving so that all your luggage is not all over the floor

2/10 Poor

Hotel reservation I decided to cancel
Before I even begin my review, I wanted to point out that my previous review was removed along with any other recent reviews of this hotel, thus you only see 2 reviews and 5.0 rating. :o) Despite what you may see in photos, you may realize otherwise when you visit this hotel property. It was not good enough for my stay. It was not clean enough and too far away from town. If you wanted to eat or massage elsewhere, you would have to drive into town for 30-40 minutes on poor road condition. I travel quite often and I would rate this hotel 2.5, 3 at the most. After visiting the hotel, I've contacted Expedia to cancel my reservation, but the hotel refused based on its policy. As a VIP member, I never had any problem cancelling my reservation, but the general manager of this hotel was more focused on following its policy, rather than wanting to find out the reason for my cancellation and how he can accommodate to provide very best customer service. Good hotel with good management is always interested in how to best serve its customers' needs to provide a memorable stay and I did not see that here. There are far better hotels in town if you want to experience VangVieng.

Wonderful stay
The resort is far from vang vieng city center about 25 kilometers. It means this is a good place for relaxation. The view is very beautifull and the resort located between lakes. Room decoration is very nice and u can see the river when u sleeping on the bed from your room, good smell is everywhere, even toilet. There is a very good resturant with delicies meals and perfect breakfast. rasturant has been managed by a belgium young cheff, my wife and I want to thank the cheff. You can find some activities like jeteski, kayaking,atc. More over, there is a swiming pool that sorunded by lake, this pool is not very big but the view is very nice.we enjoyed a lot from our stay in this resort and I think this resort is one of the best in vang vieng. If we come back to vang vieng in future, certainly we stay in this hotel again. Thank you very much from the kind and friendly staff.
