We stayed here as part of a wonderful 3 day cruise down the Mekong from north Thailand into Laos. This is a fascinating eco-tourist resort that seems to have a strong ethical relationship with the neighbouring village, providing various employments for the local people and paying the village when tourists visit. Lovely setting and attentive staff. Accommodation consists of large...

We arrived around lunchtime after a river boat trip up the Mekong, and were met by Oliver, the very charismatic and warm General Manager. You are accomodated in new and really comfortable and grand tents, which rely only on solar power. We were very privileged to be the only guests that day, and we were royally looked after. Oliver is...

It is definitely a special place, about 3 1/2 hours by boat from Luang Prabang, at the edge of a small Khamu village (That's why it is called Kamu Lodge). A few tents on a paved platform under a bamboo-straw hut with some views onto the Mekong river (if it isn't overgrown by the jungle). A bar and the restaurant...

It was something quite unexpected, to stay in a giant tent but with partial hotel facilities. There are no power points though, so be prepared to do without your gadgets and electronics. The entire place is very pleasant except the mosquitoes, so make sure u wear long to cover up or spray repellant. The staff provide good services. All in...

Very enjoyable stay at this Eco-lodge, which is what it says it is. No mains electricity, so when there is no sun, there is no hot water and limited power from it's batteries for it's glamping accommodation. 24 of 28 staff are from next door Kamu village. Food is adequate but bearing in mind the facilities can't be faulted. Well...

Getting to Kamu Lodge from Luang Prabang is an experience in itself. We travelled for 2/12 hours in a Lao long boat up the Mekong River. The river bank sights are superb with local people fishing or planting crops right up to the river's edge. There are many rapids and it was exhilarating to see the swirls and whirlpools of...

Kamu lodge is located in a beautiful green area, along the Mekong river. The neighbors are Laotian people living in the village nearby (to be visited). Plenty of local activities are proposed, food is good, and all the staff is charming and helpful. A great experience with children!

Kamu Lodge is an absolutely great and unique destination, an authentic escape to the Lao jungle! You travel by boat, passing by the Pak Ou Caves, and you are so nicely welcomed by your guide. He will perfectly take care of you during your stay. After a warm welcome by the friendly staff and checking into the lovely safari tents...

Travelling on Luang Say Mekong boat cruise, an overnight stay at Kamu is a must. Felt as though I was living in a special village. My tent was spacious, well appointed and had a hot shower and flush toilet in the bathroom.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sitting along the Mekong River, Kamu Lodge offers the unique opportunity to experience slow travel with accommodation in our spacious "African Safari" tents, each with a private balcony and thatched roofs. Our tents provide all necessary comforts and great river views. Using only solar power energy at the lodge, rooms have lights, fans and each has an en-suite private bathroom with shower facilities. The experience includes boat transfers to and from Luang Prabang. Step back in time visiting and getting to know the people from the neighboring Kamu Ethnic Minority Village. Activities include the chance to learn traditional crafts from the Kamu people of net fishing, gold panning and to learn with a "hands on" opportunity of rice planting and harvesting. We also offer traditional massages that complement the experience. Enjoy al fresco dining at the lodge's rustic restaurant in the middle of the rice fields. We serve Lao specialties, offering lunch, dinner and breakfast included in the package. There is also a well-stocked bar, offering a delicious selection of drinks and refreshments.
