Stayed there two nights. The first night was great. But the second turned to be the worst. It rained pretty heavy. Two tipis stayed dry but 2 including ouers got totally wet. The owner was the whole night not around. So we had to help ourselves. At least we just had to pay one night.

We arrived at the last resort for a party that they were having on the beach, we loved it so much we came back first thing the next day to get ourselves a tipi, we intended on staying for two nights but ended up staying for 8 nights and found it really hard to leave. The tipis were very comfy...

If you cant walk or just want to sit under a tree, reading,drinking and talk to people anyway, this is the place to stay. (Even better if you can, i think)Also offers a natural swimming machine in the refreshing river. I guess i could have enjoyed the beach party more if i've been able to dance to the surprisingly good...

We stayed for 3 nights in a teepee and it was pretty cool! You have to share a bathroom and there is a chill out area where everybody meets and talks with an familiar atmosphere. We really liked it there and wanted to stay longer but we had to go on with our travel because the time is limited. The...

Booked a room via facebook & from lonely planet saw it was south of the island. I walked 20 mins south to be told it's on a different road..back I go and not an easy walk in the mud...another 20 mins...signs or directions would have been useful. Arrived there to blaring music & 4 young Laos guys drinking at laughing...

Its the place I was looking for so long while travelling. Travelling can be exhausting after a while, and The Last Resort is just the perfect place to take a break, a long break, or even a longer break. There is nothing else like that on the Island and havent seen anything like this anywhere else I have been. The...

We stayed here for 2 weeks and loved it. The teepees are a great size and really clean. There is a communal area where they have film nights and you can chill out in the day. The price was really good and they even had adorable puppies. It is a 20 minute walk to the main part of the island...

Different! Different to everything else around. And thats what makes this place so perfect. Never expected to sleep in a teepee, loved it! First place I actually could calm down of travelling, relax and recharge one´s batteries. Its a very social place but not too busy, as there are "only" 4 teepees, which is just the right amount in my...

It was a gruelling 20min walk from the docks to the Last Resort in the midday sun (just keeping following the signs towards the sunset side of the island) but the rustic tepees and cosy atmosphere are definitely worth it. The tepees are really cool with a raised smallish double bed area with mosquito net and fan. The communal balcony...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Last Resort is a travelling community located on the Sunset Side of Don Det, in the majestic Sipandon region of Laos. Nestled astride the Mekong river, The Last Resort is made up of a handful of beautiful teepees, constructed using only locally sourced materials, in keeping with the age old tradition of the island. More than just a guest house, The Last Resort attracts like minded individuals who are seeking a more natural and communal alternative to the other accommodation available on the island. The teepees are positioned serenely between working, traditional Laos gardens where herbs, fruits and vegetables are grown and used to prepare daily food, a nightly fire with surrounding benches for relaxing in the evening and a rock oven used to make fresh bread and sweet treats!In addition to regular cinema nights on our big screen on the beach, the Last Resort Beach Bar also hosts weekly parties and is open daily for food and drinks to be enjoyed whilst sunbathing and swimming in the Mekong river. ... more   less
