Spent most of the afternoon lounging in their riverside bamboo lounge - what a wonderful way to escape the afternoon heat. The place wasn't crowded at all, a couple of tables in each area, and everyone seemed to be enjoying the vibe. I wouldn't recommend...More

We had an evening drink sitting under the thatched lean-to area. It features squabs and triangular pillows for the young couples and reclining chairs and tables for the more mature - AND thankfully, mosquito candles and coils. Very pleasant indeed watching the light fade and...More

Place is nice and cocktails and food are good but the place is simply too popular and too crowded. Only with tourists ! Good place to party if you are a group and want to meet people.

I visited the Utopia bar during a stay in Luang Prabang on our intrepid group tour. Be mindful it's quite difficult to find so definitely plan your route (we nearly gave up!). We ordered a collection of dishes: plantain chips, wontons and spring rolls which...More

Come and enjoy relaxing views overlooking the river. We have tropical gardens, river view yoga deck, tiki huts, beach volleyball courts, relaxing thai cushions, sofas, and bar stools. This is a place to come and relax. Enjoy food, drinks, and meet interesting people. Utopia is Zen by Day, Groovy by Night. Every evening we are by far the busiest place in the city. Utopia is a very special and unique place, and our typical customers will come back every day!! Don't wait until your last day to find Utopia.
