Thong bay Guesthouse had very unique cabins, some overlooking the Kan River for an extra fee. Cabins were very nice with a beautiful ensuite. Be careful at night going down the steps to the bathroom. Cabins had balconies to which your morning breakfast was delivered, very delightful way to enjoy the beginning of the day. Grounds were beautifully maintained with...

Our stay at Thongbay Guesthouse was one of the highlights of our trip to Laos and Thailand. We were met at the airport, and then welcomed at the guesthouse with tea and cake by the kindest young man, Neth.The grounds are lushly and meticulously landscaped. Our river bungalow was spacious and comfortable with a wonderful balcony overlooking the river. We...

Staff is warm, patient and always eager to help. We had a river facing bungalow and it was great having breakfast by the river in the outdoors. Rooms are well-maintained and cosy. The breakfast is a delicious combination of baguettes, mixed fruit, juice, coffee/tea and a main course that we choose the night before. Although it's a slightly off from...

We just spent 3 nights at the Thongbay Guest House. It's a charming small place located right along the river in Luang Prabang. The grounds are beautiful- quite tropical with gardens and nice outdoor spaces. You can choose to have your breakfast either on your deck or on a deck above the river. It's located just a short drive outside...

We stayed at Thongbay in early November for three nights and wish it had been longer. The guesthouse is situated on the bank of the Nam Khan river and the bungalows overlook the river. The rooms are very authentic and breakfast is served on your balcony in the morning. The staff are wonderful, very friendly and efficient. They run a...

I could tell you all about the room and the comfy bed and the massive delicious breakfast but each of those things you may get in other guesthouses. What you may not get are the truly beautiful immaculate gardens, this is one place where the 'garden view' villas actually may have a better outlook than river view. Another thing we...

Thongbay Guesthouse is a well-runned place on a wonderful location with good views over the river just outside of Luang Prabang. Nice cabins, a bit of Spartan mattresses, adequate and friendly service, good choice of breakfasts, free transportation to and from town. Moderate kitchen for lunch and dinner. All ingredients for a wonderful relaxing stay. But... due to the nearly...

This was a stunning oasis in a beautiful city. The huts are thoughtfully designed, firm beds, open windows, mosquito nets, timber floors and walls and thatched roof created a comfortable sleeping environment and made air conditioning unnecessary. Breakfast on the verandah was a lovely start to the day. The staff were friendly and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. The...

I've spent 3 nights at Thongbay on a brief journey to Luang Prabang in November 2013. The guesthouse is located roughly 5 minutes from the city center by car or tuk-tuk, which is rather an advantage than a disadvantage. First, the sleeping quality in the bungalows is simply superb and second, free pickups are offered by the guesthouse every hour...
