Wanna really get away? Head to Kamu Lodge. No WiFi, no cell service, limited electricity... but breathtaking scenery and a rather comfortable sleep upriver on the banks of the Mekong. The staff were very friendly and down-to-Earth people. Visiting the Khmu village nearby was the highlight for me. But let's get something straight, this is not your "typical" village in...

My Husband and I recently travelled to Laos and despite the heat had a wonderful holiday. Included in our trip we experienced a 2 day / 1 night stay at Kuma Lodge. The trip out to the Lodge was on the Mekong River and was very relaxing. We stopped on the way to take in the sight of the caves....

We stayed here on the second night of our trip down the Mekong. A different world and nothing to do with Luang Prabag (it is half a day away). It is on the land of one of the many Kamu tribes and employs the people from their village, which we visited. Opportunities to practice fish netting technique, petoncle, rice planting...

If you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of cities and modern devices, look no further Kamu Lodge Experience. I have to call this a hideaway. Far from the city, located in the midst of Laos' jungles, you'll see only the greenery like me. The 3-hour cruise trip on the Mekong River to reach Kamu Lodge was an...

I stayed one night at Kamu Lodge whilst on a Mekong Cruise as part of a holiday with my adult son who is working in Thailand.

This is an Eco lodge on the Mekong river about two hours from Luang Prabang. You stay in a tent, albeit a tent with tiled floor! Excellent solar powered accommodation with comfortable bed and an adequate shower. We stayed one night and the evening meal and breakfast were good. There is a local village close by which is interesting to...

This is a stunning location but.... We felt the food was the worst we had eaten in SE Asia. The attention to detail was very poor and it didn't make the best of its Eco credentials. Stinky bathrooms. The tents were ok but one had mould under the bed covers and the other had holes. We like the quiet in...

Sometimes it is just the accommodation that is special. This whole experience from boarding the boat, the trip up the Mekong, the history of the Kamu people and walking through the village to appreciate their way of life was also great. Accommodation was comfortable and the food was typical of the region and enjoyable. Highly recommend this experience.

We spent one night here I really wish we had booked for 2 nights. The boat trip along the mekong river was spectacular.

I was a bit apprehensive about exploring Laos for the first time, especially since the trip was going to be with my dad and we don’t really see things eye to eye.

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. Kamu Lodge is in Yoi Hai Village, a 2.5-hour boat ride from Luang Prabang, tour includes a stop at the revered Pak Ou Caves. The 2 day 1 night package departs Luang Prabang daily at 9.00am, returning the following day before 4pm ... more   less
