This guesthouse (and also the restaurant!) is definitely the best choice on whole Don Det. The bungalows are directly on the waterfront of the Mekong so that you can see the sunrise over the river from one of the hammocks on your veranda.

Nice place run by a Lao-German couple and their family. During our stay we felt always welcome due to Lutz and his family. Our wooden bungalow had a big terrasse with two comfy hammocks and a beautiful view on the mekong and some small islands. The restaurant offers both western and lao food... really delicious!!

I had an awesome stay here, the food is great and Lutz and his family are doing everything they can to make you have a good time at their place. Despite I stayed at another place I stayed at Mama Leuah's for every meal I ate on Don Det.

I stayed three nights at Mama Leuahs Guesthouse and it was amazing. Lutz and the rest of the family are very helpful and the restaurant is just delicious.

We stayed at Mama Leuah's for 3 nights in September. We've never felt so welcome at a guesthouse and Lutz, who runs the place with his wife and mother in law, makes every effort to make you comfortable. He gave us a lot of advice for travelling around the islands and for our onward journey. The bungalows are beautiful and... More
