This place is in the most beautiful area. We arrived by boat on the Mekong and as you walk up the riverbank you are met with the most amazingly gorgeous view. Incredible setting in some rice fields surrounded by Laos Jungle. The lodge really feels like part of the local community. The village tour is a must and the local people are so friendly. All the activities were included in the price. Managed to do crossbow shooting,
ploughing with water buffalo, gold panning and fishing. Some are better than others but it's nice to try local things and it means you are never bored. Also had a massage which was great.
Tents are simple but fine. Has everything you need with a en suite little bathroom with hot water.
My only issue with this place is the dining. Food is very basic. The open air restaurant is in the middle of the rice fields and has bright lights which attract lots of crickets and mosquitos in from the pitch black outside. It is just a bit unpleasant when eating to have so many crickets and bugs jumping all over you and your food!
Perhaps it was a one off or a particular time of year. Overall this is a really good experience and I would recommend it, just not for everyone.More
