A lovely relaxing resort. Small. Super friendly staff. Great food. Pool is picturesque but more of a pond than q pool. Handy for elephant sanctuary just along the river. Peaceful isolation . Recommended if you want quiet and picturesque.

Loved every minute of my time here, from the beautiful rooms to the gorgeous riverside location to the friendly and attentive staff, everything was perfect! The grounds are lush and green and everything is clean and well cared for. Good food too.

We really enjoyed the peacefulness of the resort, combined with the helpful owners and staff. The lady owner is a previous chef, so even though the menu is not extremely lengthy, whatever comes out of the pots are truly delicious! I recommend the `Roasted lao seaweed´snack - a local delicacy, that comes with sesam seeds, spring onion and peanutbutter dip...

This hotel is set in the lush Laotian jungle of Luang Prabang and it was jaw dropping. The hotel, service and surrounding city was everything we hoped it would be. The room was large and spacious with a great sitting area inside and outside to view the jungle. Breakfast was made to order and the pool was quite interesting.

This is a nice resort, it is tucked away in the countryside on the Nam Kahn river about 30 mins drive from Luang Prabang. One way trip to LP is $20usd in a van, cheapest we got in a tuk tuk was $15usd. Much better hiring a bike through the hotel if you want to get around. On arrival, they...

I had the most wonderful 3 days here. What a beautiful place that feels like heaven on earth. So peaceful and quiet. The location is stunning! Mountains all around and you can hear the elephants from the resort. Some guests could even see them in the morning. In the evening there is a log fire to sit around and we...

Finally I decided to book something special and not the normal hotel stuff directly in Luang Prabang. When we arrived (two couples with one child), we were at first a little surprised...

The location is quite spectacular. The rooms are simple but pleasant. We went by boat to the waterfall and walked to the elephant sanctuary - both not to...
