Like most guests, we had a one night stay during a Luang Say cruise to Luang Prabang. The cruise was fabulous and this stay just added to it. We walked in from the beach to what is effectively a jungle lodge. The staff were friendly and attentive, and we were given room 14, the first you come to along a...

Our cruise started in Chiang Khong and travelled downstream to Luang Prabang in late October, and was the most spectacular and relaxing experience. All the stresses of the past year floated away in two single days as I sat in my favourite seat - right up at the front of the boat below the driver. I could sit here and...

We stayed her 1 night during our 2 day Mekong Cruise with Luang Say. We loved the cruise - only 15 passengers on a boat that takes max 40 people - so it was very nice. The over night at this lodge was a nice add to the charm of the cruise. The atmosphere is nice, the cabins are well...

It is little upstream from the town of Pakbeng.The Lodge is very attractive collection of individual wooden bungalows around a central dining/reception area stretched along the bank of the Mekong. In November we had dry days...

We wound up here for an overnight stay by taking the "upscale" Luang Say cruise upriver from Luang Probang to Houei Say. The hotel is reached by climbing up a steep hillside from the beachhead boat landing. The staff was insufficient to deal with the 32 people from the boat. The buffet dinner was bland and overcooked. We had to...

Dear Nala S, Thank you for sharing your comments. We are sorry to learn that you were disappointed with your experience on our cruise. Unfortunately we do not assign seats on our boat, so that guests are free to sit wherever they want. However our boat is fit to welcome 40 passengers to sit comfortably. We pride in using the...

This lodge looks over the Mekong river and is often used by people staying overnight when on the two day trip along this part of the river. It is comfortable, the food is good and there is a nice pleasant atmosphere. Although a simple lodge the staff do all they can to make the visit happy and comfortable. There is...

We took a two-day Mekong River cruise from Houayxay (near Thai border) to Luang Prabang and stayed at this lodge overnight (about half way through the trip). The cruise was about 6-7 hours each day on a slow long boat. There were about 20 guests on the boat with us. La, our English-speaking boat guide, was very enjoyable. Service on...
