From the moment we were met off our plane we knew we were in for the best holiday!!! Our driver was waiting and after a short 20 minute trip in a comfortable van we arrived at our small reaort in the jungle hearing the sounds of birds and nothing else. We were briefly escorted to reception and within 5 mins... More

This place would be an ideal honeymoon or romantic getaway. The bungalows are charming, spacious and very comfortable. No TV, sporadic internet and no AC, perfect. The meals served are excellent, the wine is very good but the atmosphere is what sells the place. Yes, there are elephants bathing in the river across from the resort. The views are stunning,...

This was a special 2 day stay in the "jungle" .. our individual bungalow accommodation was so private and comfortable and we particularly loved the outdoor shower. The staff were charming and the food in the open all day restaurant was just great. Right on the Nahm Khan river opposite an elephant camp made it very interesting too and just... More

We stayed here as a family of five in two bungalows for one night as part of our trip to the Elephant Village. The bungalows were delightful, made of teak with huge glass windows/sliding doors overlooking the river, with a large balcony with comfortable chairs. Rooms were large and spotlessly clean. Mosquito nets and fans are provided. This is a... More

We were recommended this place by friends who had stayed many years ago and loved the tranquility. Having come from Cambodia via Luang Prabang during the busy Pii Mai holiday, where being ambushed by locals throwing buckets of ice water was a matter of routine, we were somewhat wired on arrival and took a while to unwind. This place is... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Lao Spirit. It is a very special place set a few minutes outside LP. The wood design is eye catching and makes you feel as if you're in an exotic film. You can see elephants bathing in the river which is a great way to pass the afternoon. The food is also delicious! Highly... More

We went for two days, and wished we had spent more time. An absolute oasis of calm, a room with a beautiful river view, a wonderful village with delicious noodle soup near by, and the most warm, friendly staff. Watch out for the Elephant Village close to the resort - very touristy, but completely avoidable. This is a place to... More
