I stayed at Zen Namkhan for 4 nights. It was recommended to me by a friend who found the resort charming and the owners very nice. The lovely Lao fellow who "runs the show " is Khamsaen! A real treasure! I found Moon and Luc (Owners) very nice and helpful - we arranged several activities through Luc and Moon and...

We began our month long trip in laos by tarting ourselves to a few nights here to recover from jet lag and we were so happy we did. Our bungalow was so beautiful with mist rolling through the trees in the morning, birds singing and cosy duvets to snuggle in to watch. And the concierge, Khamson, made it especially welcoming....

We were at the resort at the same time of the gentlemen and the older women who complained below.

We checked into this hotel yesterday for a 4 night stay. On arriving it was immediately evident that this hotel is totally unsuitable for anyone other than the extremely fit and able bodied.

I have never written an unfavorable review before but wanted to say that all the previous reviews might set your expectations a bit high...For one, the caged-up monkeys next to the lobby area didn't seem so Zen. The main highlight of the place is the view really. The hotel is isolated which may inconvenience trips to town (especially for meals...
