We, two couples, stayed in two riverfront bungalows for 4 nights almost a month ago. We had the most wonderful stay. It was great to be on the river and a have some real space to relax and unwind just a little out of town. The gardens surrounding the bungalows added to the beauty and charm. We jumped on the...

After 5 weeks of trekking around Indochina we wanted time to reflect and relax before returning home. Thongbay was the perfect outer city oasis to do this. The guesthouse well deserves its accolades and positive reviews. The garden setting reminds us of Balinese guesthouses we used to stay at 30 years ago. Unsurprisingly since its peak season, all the bungalows... More

The best guesthouse we have ever stayed in. Every detail is thought of and thoughtful, from the pick up at the airport to being waved off when we left. The staff are attentive and kind, more than happy to arrange trips for you or help with suggestions, or just make sure you are wearing something appropriate if you are visiting... More

We absolutely loved every minute of our stay at Thongbay! From the moment you arrive you are made to feel very welcome, the guesthouse is run by an absolutely wonderful, friendly family. The garden bungalows are stunning and we loved having breakfast overlooking the river. Everything felt very personalised and special and there is a great free minibus service into... More

Very charming pretty garden with bungalows over the river reasonable price too. The decor slightly outdated inside with bizarre blankets but lovely staff breakfast brought to you when you want in the river amazing. The distance to town was fine and one of the few hotels that provide a free bike and transfer

Close enough to the centre, this place is amazing with a relaxed and quiet atmosphere. Bungalows are nice and private. Best of all is the staff, who are ALL so friendly and helpful. They really put the client first. We came back here after a visit to the north, it felt like coming home. Breakfast is served at the bungalow... More

Thong bay guest house is an excellent place to relax, restore, renew in Luang Prabang . Beautiful gardens, wonderful hospitality, delicious breakfasts, comfortable/clean bungalows, convenient shuttle into town, and free bicycles. Our bungalow faced the river Nam Khong. Two things to be aware of: the river is not for swimming. It is brownish in color. But, it is a lovely... More

Absolutely recommendable. Free pick-up from the airport, a warm welcome at the guesthouse, a very beautiful resort area, an exotic paradise like clean bungalow with quiet surroundings, free shuttle buses a few times a day to and from the city center, free bicycles and a large and delicious breakfast served on the veranda! Nothing to complain.
