Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Taking plenty of time to scooter 🛵 the Big Loop of the Bolaven Plateau, we found ourselves drawn to this offer of Jungle Waterfall accommodation. Stopping off at Tad Yuang waterfall mid morning saw us at Tad Fane just after lunch and we were hooked! Booking a cabin allowed us to dump our packs and spend the afternoon walking the tracks here and at Tad Champi with time early evening to indulge in a beverage with a pretty amazing view.
The rooms were neat, clean and compact but foremost, one of the ‘Best Beds 🛌’ ever slept on!! Laos mattress’s can be different than most are used too but these were awesome 👏🏻.. oh so comfy!!
Breakfast 🥞 included was nice and varied and the meals at night tasty.

A nice resort in a picturesque setting but Tad Fane waterfall definitely is not the best waterfall attraction in the area. It's drop is impressive but the fact you can't actually trek down to the bottom of the falls makes it a bit ho hum in comparison to the other falls nearby. If you want to swim then Tad Champee, back across the road, and Tad Yuang are much better options. If you're in the mood for a bit of trekking for USD 10 the half viet guy, who runs the restaurant at the resort, will take you on a trek across to the head of Tad Fane Falls, then up through the jungle and across to Tad Yuang. After a swim at Tad Yuang the hike back is through a maze of coffee plantations. The round trip takes approx 4 hours. Take good footwear, insect repellent and a litre of drinking water. There is a tough hill climb getting over to Tad Yunang so a good level of fitness is advised.

This place is an awkward balance between a not-so-all-inclusive resort, rustic camping-like cabins and state park feel, still we overall had a unique experience. It was unacceptable how the amenities were advertised on the resort's website compared to the reality. The website lists laundry service, airport shuttle and says it is located 10 km from Pakse, none of which are true, We chose this place for a multi night stay, in part bc of these descriptions and very much needed to do our laundry. The staff knew nothing of that, but were very kind to offer us to wash clothes by hand in their own living quarters. The place is remote which can be both positive and negative. We didn't have our own transportation and riding on the public transport pickup truck beds was a fun adventure every time, but the airport shuttle to Pakse was nonexistent. It could be challenging to get basic necessities and get around. Also, the rooms held an extreme amount of moisture. Our clothes became damp just from sitting in the room. We believe the room was overpriced. It was small, dimly lit, and the bathroom a bit dirty.

The positives were the extremely unique experience we had there. We were one of very few guests at the resort and were able to spend time connecting to the staff who lived and worked there, who were very kind. They made us a fire in the morning overlooking the fog coming up from the falls and served us local coffee and Lao tea with breakfast. We also were able to spend time with nature. The falls were beautiful, as well as sitting on our bungalo porch, gazing at the forest, playing cards and talking was very nice, as well as falling asleep to the sounds of the jungle: crickets, waterfall and rain. It also offered nice relief from the stimulation of Laos' cities. A highlight of our visit was a trek we took with a local guide from the village who took us to sacred grounds atop the Bolaven plateau, the Champi waterfall and through streams, coffee fields, and fruit trees. Fantastic! However, this trek is not something officially organized by the resort. Actually, initially they told us they don't offer that. We had to make connections and eventually made this happen. If you go here, keep asking about treks, it is possible, and is beneficial to tourists and villagers alike.

If you want a unique experience and seclusion, this is a great spot to stop for a bit and break up an adventurous trip in Laos. We wouldn't recommend staying more than a night or two.

Located at km 38 Paksong, Highway 16E from the city of Pakse. You have to drive 500m red dirt road to this resort.

Entrance fee is 10,000 Kip / person and 5,000 Kip / motorbike. This is a great place to admire the Tad Fane waterfall, along with a coffee shop counter and rows of wooden chairs and swings.

We did not choose to stay here because it was far from the city center and I found that decision completely correct. Staff do not speak English, they are also very indifferent, not welcoming guests. Buying a bottle of water and settleing the bill is really a big challenge when we cannot understand each other, they are really not acumen in prediction, which is very difficult in communication. I was worried that if we had a problem during the stay, it would be almost impossible for them to understand and resolve the problem.

We relied on Google to take us to Tad Fane Waterfalls and it took us here where we paid 20,000 kip per person to get in and 5,000 kip to park our rented motorcyle.

I love the sound of the birds as soon as we got into the resort. The trees are tall and provided a lot of shade. There are bungalows for overnight stay too. We reached the deck and saw Tad Fane down below, it was underwhelming. We were so far away when we expected to be down where the water is. We tried to ask the staff if we can hike down but they said "no". We're also way up so it might take hours to hike.

There's a pricey zipline on top of the waterfall for $35/person. Interestingly, they also offer ziplining with coffee where they send you over with a table ($60) and overnight stay at the zipline ($200).

We left after taking a fee photos. Nothing else to do. There's souvenir shops on the way out.

The hotel is very nicely located. The accommodations are quite simple cabins. The hotel staff is nice but linguistically overwhelmed, unmotivated and not at all helpful.
Dinner at the restaurant was bland and unimaginative. Leg breakfast was missing the fruit.
We're not staying here a second time.

This is one of the weirdest places I've ever stayed. It is absolutely beautiful. Beautiful dark wood beams and panels everywhere. The location is spectacular. Beautiful jungle right on the edge of a waterfall. Every walk from your bungalow to the restaurant is really beautiful. Now what's the problem? There was no management. The cleaners were doing a really good job. Where was the desk clerk? When I was there at 6 there was nobody working anywhere. The restaurant was dark the front desk was empty. The second night the same thing happened and I was the only guest in the hotel. It was almost like the twilight zone. They don't offer you any rides. I had to just walk away from the hotel up to the main road and catch a truck going by. If this place was managd, they would have so much more business. It is really a shame.

I am a woman traveling alone and this was the only time I felt unsafe in SE Asia and I traveled through 5 countries. After a horrible night with a damp bed (cabin is not sealed and the mist that surrounds this area soaks into everything in the room), cicada bugs bigger than my shoe getting into my room at night, and literally being by myself since I was the only guest that night, I decided to leave the next day and cancel the next 2 nights. The staff kept physically surrounding me and making me talk to the manager on the phone (because he was the only one that spoke English and he wasn't there) who kept asking over and over why I wouldn't pay for all 3 nights even though I wasn't staying. Then he shows up and the situation escalates until I had 4 Laos men around me making me feel physically intimidated after I have already paid for the night I stayed, no one would call me a vehicle to take me into town, and now they are asking me for my passport to "hold". I felt quite helpless as there is NOTHING in this area and it is 40km from the small town so unless you have a rented motorcycle, you are dependent on their van that charges $50 one way and whether or not they will even order it for you. I ended up having to get a ride from a couple total strangers that luckily came by on a motorcycles to visit the waterfall. Also be warned that without any transportation of your own, there is nothing to do or see once you are there because everything in the area is far enough that you need transportation. They offered a couple packages to see other sites that were $120 and $200 each to see a couple other things in the area for a few hours.

Waterfallas are amazing! BUT, littering the backyards of the resort is a BIG shame for the resort’s owners. If You wont like to support it with Your money, dont stay there. Look at the photos!

In additional I have to update the entrance fee, because up to latest lonely planet guide it should be 5000 kip, now is 10000 kip + 5000 for motorbike parking

Functional place if you need to spend the night but try to avoid it.
The waterfall is probably the biggest we have seen in laos, but other places are way more beautiful and charming.
The whole atmosphere of the place smells to tourist trap. It has no charme, during the day it is crowded with Chinese tourist and people doing the zip lining. The restaurant is very avarage and in the evening there was a lap group of people there listening to super loud music - we couldn't even hear our own voices.
The place seems to be run by locals, only two people of the staff spoke English (the waiters none). The window in our room wouldn't close properly and it was freezing in this place. We told the guy behind the reception and he sent a handyman who gave up quickly after he couldn't fix the problem with just banging at the window. They were nice enough though to let us change the room.
prices are much higher than in the rest of the bolaven plateau.
We wanted to go hiking and told them via email in advance. But when we showed up they said that it is probably not possible because the guide hurt his foot and might not be able to walk the next day. So we said we will check the next day if it is really possible or not. The next day they had all forgotten about our request and told us no it wasn't possible. They then wanted to draw us a map how to trek to the other waterfall on our own after the other receptionist had told us the day before not to go off on our own because it was very dangerous. We then told them we wanted to check out and find some place to hike somewhere else. They then only refunded us half of the second night.

I visited with my family and they have a friend who has a large car and he took us but it is only about 30 - 40 minutes drive from Pakse so you should have no problem getting a taxi or guided tour from there.
