Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

Super clean rooms, very nice breakfast and superb food. But the host she is probably the most friendly and helpful woman in this world. Once arrived there I got infected with Dengue fever and ended up in the hospital for a week. She brought me food and drinks 3 times a day and helped me with translation and transport for my entire stay at the hospital, all free of charge. I can not thank her enough for what she did to me as she was the light in a very difficult period. I would highly recommend this place and whenever I am back in Pakse, there will be only 1 hotel I will stay in. Thank you so much for everything!!!!!!!

I felt very welcome and safe as a solo female traveler. I loved the garden and the room. Made me want to stay "at home" and read a book or enjoy the lovely food Ngoc and her mother makes. The bathroom is spacious, warm shower, the breakfast is good and during the day always a surprise snack/treat which was lovely. The fact that Ngoc actually thought with me and arranged my travel plans made everything so much easier. Thank you so much for everything. I will recommend anyone to stay at this place ❤️🙏 I loved it all

I loved this place close to Pakse. Upon arrival I was offered cold tea and fresh fruits. The room was very spacious with airconditioning and a fan, good bed and good shower. The food was delicious (I had dinner and breakfast with good coffee), and the owner is so nice and helpful. I will come back to this place! Thank you 🙏

I booked this place because of the glowing reviews but was very disappointed. So much so that I moved on after one night even though I had booked for three knowing that I couldn't get my money back. I found my room (room 5) dreary and depressing, very tired and in need of decoration though they had made an effort with fresh flower petals on the bed. I couldn't sleep as the aircon didn't work (it was repaired the next day but I still paid full price), there were windows at ceiling height with no curtains (all rooms have these) and dogs were barking. The food was average in my opinion. You have to book the time of your meal and what you would like to eat in advance. The owner was helpful and seemed genuinely concerned that I was moving on. I just couldn't be comfortable there and it was incovenient for me to be so far out of town on a main road as I don't ride a motorbike. I found a much better option in town (modern, clean, bright) for less than half the price which suited me much better. I am surprised there aren't more reviews like mine for this place. I really think you can find much better places in Pakse.

I stayed here for a week as I needed a break from cities and constant travel. I felt very at home during my stay here. Ngoc was a wonderful host - very kind and attentive, and her food was delicious. I highly recommend the cooking class. It is also easy to book trips and long distance journeys, and Ngoc would call a tuk tuk driver for me when I needed to go into Pakse, as I did not have a bike. If you need a rest from constant travel and to spend some time in nature, then I highly recommend!

We felt right at home straight away and wish wo could spend more time here. Rooms are basic but clean and spacious and have everything you need. Ngoc was always smiling. Very kind, helpfull and warm. The place is outside the center wich we liked because of the nice garden. And you don't need a city when you can have great diners here. I can recomend her cooking class and arranging excursions through her as well.

Facilities are good. Clean establishment. But what takes it over the top is the care the owner shows. She always checked on us and took care of every request. Went above and beyond expectations! Great breakfast and dinner too!

This is a lovely boutique hotel set in a beautiful garden with a great eating/common area overlooking the garden. It almost felt like you were eating in a tree house. The rooms were lovely and clean. The hostess Ngoc was so incredibly warm and welcoming. Cooking classes are also available here. I would definitely recommend this place.

The bad things first; it’s situated next the the main road and are very busy at weekends, but “in the garden” you actually don’t hear the traffic. The restaurant gave us the only meal, while being in Laos, that was totally uninspired and of bad quality. That said; the service in the resort is super and the bungalows are quiet. A free internet works. The pool looks good and are at its best early mornings... afternoons are busy. If you are in need for a pit stop driving the Bolaven’s without having to high expectations, it may work.

Hello, I am writing this review to encourage a stay at Xuanmai Garden Resort. My husband and I were traveling through southern Laos and this spot became our contact place. When we travel we like a home base and nothing could be more perfect than the Xuanmai Garden Resort. It is a beautiful sheltered spot about five kilometers from the airport. We loved it! From here you can make day trips to the Bolavan Plateau and the temple ruins at Vat Phou. Ngoc arranges all our travel for us. After breakfast here your transportation arrives. What could be easier and less stressful. If you are a small business owner and would like a spot for a retreat this is perfect. There are twenty rooms reasonably priced, and gardens and small tables to meet and collaborate. If you choose a menu, Ngoc can prepare a dinner for your large group! So much better than the large, impersonal hotels in Paske! Enjoy your stay! Diana Weir and Roger Sternberg
