It must be put in prospective that tourism in Laos is growing after years of being in the doldrums, with the standard of the hotel industry possibly being some years behind the more developed countries; that being said and reiterating many of the past comments for this hotel it is sited on the river banks by a local village. Access...

Stayed over night at Luang Say Lodge as part of the Luang Say slow boat river cruise from Huay Xavi to Luang Prabang. Great location, though need a modicum of fitness to walk up the embankment and stairs to the Lodge. Enjoyed views down to the Mekong below especially sunset and sunrise over the river and jungle. Bungalows are large...

I stayed at this Lodge in conjunction with a Mekong river Cruise through the same company (Luang Say River Cruise). Arrived late in the day (17:00) as it was getting dark. Nice Sunset!! BUT....as it got dark, you had to find your way to the Cottage. Room lights were not on and took a while to find the switch. Once...

We were on a two day Mekong river trip from Luang Prabang to the Thai border. As days are short in November we arrived at the lodge in darkness and had to leave early to rejoin our boat trip. In the short time we were at the lodge we could see that it is a wonderful place to stay. Steep...

We stayed at Luang Say Lodge for one night during our cruise to Luang Prabang. The lodge is gorgeous. It overlooks the river but is situated basically in the jungle. When we first arrived, we were a little underwhelmed because it was just so hot! But we loved our room (#14), which had a little private deck and beautiful shutters...

As a half way stop on the Luang Say River Cruise, this is just like an African safari lodge. Bungalows are basic but perfectly comfortable. The dinner and breakfast though are OUTSTANDING!

We stayed one night here on our Luang Say Cruise to Luang Prabang and absolutely loved it. The Lodge is situated right on the steep Mekong river bank with views of the misty mountains opposite. The individual teak bungalows are spaced well apart, roomy and our bungalow was river front (highly recommended). The room was large, clean and well maintained....

I can't imagine why anyone would visit one of the poorest countries in the world and come away criticizing and expecting the 5 star treatment you might find in the Western world. After all, isn't that why we visit other cultures , to try to experience another way of life? We found the beauty of this lodge overwhelming, and were...
