Accommodation - Vientiane - Green Park Boutique

Combining the traditional and contemporary into a seamless whole can be difficult, but the Green Park has succeeded in doing just that.

Raised tile pathways set amongst jar fountains lead from the elegant reception area to the central courtyard, where contemporary Lao-style pavilions surround a lovely swimming pool and adjacent reflecting pool.

Stylish guest rooms boast rich wood floors, beautiful Lao silks draped over chic teakwood furniture, and all the modern conveniences, including free wireless Internet access.Cozy balconies have views of the pools and the newly planted frangipani trees that dot the surrounding garden areas.

Set next to the undeveloped Nong Chanh Park, Vientiane's largest, and a 15-minute walk to the Morning Market, the Green Park is far enough away to feel secluded but not too far to feel isolated from the city. Add to this tranquil setting an eager-to-please staff that caters to guests' every whim and you get a hotel that has set the bar extremely high for future boutique properties in Vientiane.
