I stayed here for a night after a work trip to Pakse, to get out of the city a relax a bit. Upon arrival I was shown to my room, which was spacious and very well-appointed. Then, I tried to head to the pool, which was locked with no staff around, at 3pm. I then had to walk back to reception and get the staff member there to let me in. The view from the pool was spectacular, and they have a beautiful bar there but unfortunately no bartender, which is a bit disappointing.
Going to bed, I thought it would be nice to sleep with the windows open because of the cooler weather, which was not possible because of karaoke blaring until at least 10:30. Music was still going at 5:45 am when I woke up, which really takes away from the peace and tranquility. Not sure if I caught it on a bad day, or if this is normal for a Saturday night, but my room in Pakse was quite, which shouldn’t be the case.
Breakfast wasn’t great, mostly carbs (rice, rice soup, bread, stir fried instant noodles)with some stirfried vegetables, and some green bananas. Outdoor shower was a nice idea, but was covered in mold and moss and left my feet dirtier than before. I understand it’s rainy season, but I feel this could’ve been cleaned occasionally.

Thank you for your review which is really great for us to improve our resort. We apologies for the pool which in soft opening. We are waiting for bar equipment and it locks because we have not enough staff to serve at the pool on the day you stay and it still a little construction. This is our mistake which will improve in time. Normally our resort is quiet, but unfortunately on the date you stay, we have a big group party which stops late on that night. We will consider more serious to time control for the party next time. I'm not sure about the music in the morning I will check with our team for the detail, maybe it some guest's speaker not our facillities. Breakfast is more Asian because we have Taiwanese vegetarian on that moring, we will improve our breakfast to more variety as you suggest and in Laos, green bananas is ready to eat - it is famous in Laos called green bananas if you still in Laos don't miss to try :) The outdoor shower is the one we will more focus as you mentioned. Thank you for you stay and suggestion. We believed next time your stay these problems will be fixed.
