We found Khoun and Khone's bungalows to be just what we needed. The warm hospitality, relaxed atmosphere, delicious food and beautiful area were a great way to recharge our travel batteries! Khoun and Khone's, and staff, were ridiculously friendly and helpful the entire stay. Can't recommend more for an authentic experience!

Khoun and Khone is a lovely place to chillax after a hard day in the heat. My kids loved being able to jam with theirs on their guitars, drums etc. Sure, they have lots of 4 legged creatures roaming around and there are lots of bugs and insects too, but hey, it's the jungle! It's rough and rustic, the wifi's not great, it's not the cheapest accommodation and nor is the food, but it's convenient if you don't feel like hacking it back into town and while their English may not be the best, they're very obliging, they'll take you wherever you want to go and Khoun is full of energy, enthusiasm and interesting stories. We loved it, and furthermore, it gave us a much better insight into Laotian life than we would have got staying in a hotel in the very touristic and not cheap Luang Prabang. Unlike 'eriktera', I WOULD recommend it for travelling adults, who enjoy meeting the people and travelling a less trodden touristic path.

We stayed for 8 nights in all and really enjoyed our time with Khoun and Khone and their extended family.

This is a small operation with just a handful of self contained and individually styled rustic bungalows arranged in a very pretty hillside location about 15 minutes drive from the town centre.

There is a restaurant area for breakfast and other meals all of which compared well with the prices in town and were of excellent quality.

Trips into and out of town were provided free of charge which was very useful and certainly offset the otherwise somewhat remote location.

The best bit though was K & K themselves. Khone especially was one of those endlessly enthusiastic people who are just a joy to be around.
The world would be a better place if we had more people like them.

Previous reviewers have been so overwhelmed by the hospitality of the hosts that they may have overlooked some aspects of the accomodation. Here's what to expect :
- charming and welcoming couple with amazing story of creating these bungalows from a patch of jungle
- 15 min drive out of town in quiet surroundings, but drop offs and pick ups until 9pm in open top jeep are included; need to be flexible to fit in with others guests plans
- family run, staffed by children and cousins
- ask for airport pickup beforehand, otherwise you will be charged USD15-20 for airport taxi
- thatched roofs, outdoor mostly warm shower and toilet (enclosed by netting but not completely sealed to the elements and nature) , doors don't completely close
-occasional plumbing and electrical issues
- spiders, ants, geckos in bungalows, cats and dogs in restaurant
- dinner available on site

What not to expect:
- breakfast is not included ( hold out for great croissants and cakes in town)
- daily cleaning service
- comforts and convenience of being in town
- wifi in rooms ( can get in restaurant)
- hotel or guesthouse style accomodation ( there is a separate category on Tripadvisor for these)

This is well suited to nature and animal lovers who want to get away Yfrom it all. A peaceful retreat, close to nature.
This is not suited to city slickers who miss the comforts of home.

We originally booked to stay at the bungalows for our last 3 nights in Laos and stay in a place in town for the first 2 nights. Once we booked our flights and realized that we would be arriving at 6:30pm, we contacted Khoun&Khone who were kind enough to switch our reservations around at the last minute. After staying there for one night and experiencing the fabulous hospitality we quickly asked if we could spend all 5 nights there.

The bungalows are located about a 10minute drive outside the city but they offer free drives in/out whenever you want. As the other reviews stated, the food is amazing! Words cannot describe how great the whole family is and how much they make you feel a part of their little world.

You don't need a tour book or an information book on Laos or Luang Prabang staying here as Khoun and Khone can tell you anything you need to know!

Room tip: We stayed in one of the bungalows on top of the hill but I can't imagine there is a bad location or bungalow on the premise!
