We are currently staying in the bungalows and while the rooms are nice, they are in a good location and the views are beautiful. There is major construction going on next door. The drilling is going on non stop and really wrecks the experience of this hotel. We were first put in a room right next to the construction which... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for writing this review. We have asked the neighbors not to build before 9am and to stop at 4pm so the guests can have a pleasant sunset on the river and get some sleep in the morning. As per the noise during the day, it really varies from day to day. Regards, Tai, General Manager, Ban... More

Pleasant location, walkable to eateries and bars. Very friendly staff throughout. Reception staff helped us arrange tuc-tuc for very fair rates. Bungalows so much nicer than the usual hotel rooms. Good breakfasts with attentive staff.

There are a few different room types at this place. Where we stayed, the walls seemed to be wafer thin. The young ladies in the next room were not being particularly noisy, but we could here every word they said. Every other mid-range property we had stayed at in Laos had cable TV. But not this place. Which meant I... More

Dear Guest, I am sorry to read that you had a bad sleep with us at Ban Sabai. Our bungalows are made of traditional bamboo and we tried to integrate them in the lush garden without ruining it. Not having TV has been a deliberate choice from the beginning (12 years ago) as we want you to get away from... More

The location directly on the river and within easy walking distance of town make Ban Sabai a great location for a visit to Vang Vieng. The staff responded instantly to any of our requests including arranging boats for a tour on the river. The included breakfast was excellent. Being cooked to order and served HOT makes a lot of difference.

This place was fantastic. The rooms were neat and nice, the people at Reception arranged heaps of stuff for us like Hot Air Ballooning etc so they were really helpful. The free breakfast was delicious too. The shower in my room wasn't fantastic (hot but no pressure) but people in the rooms around me had good showers. Other than that;... More

Great value for money. The bangalows are very clean, with a romantic atmosphere. Just great. Probably the best place to stay in Vang Vieng.

It's located in the center of the town which not far from restaurants, bars shops. I'd prefer the staffs' manner. They always service with enthusiasm. For the room price I thought it's not reasonable compare to other guesthouse in the same price. There is only a door lock which easily to break into the room. I have trouble with the... More

Our bungalow was clean and well presented with romantic decor and modern facilities, however there was a light mould smell. We found the bungalows to be of greater value for money in comparison to the Vang Vieng Eco Lodge where we previously stayed. The Ban Sabai bungalows are located in a central location in Vang Vieng along the river with... More
