not quite a resort

2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 9 Jan 2013
We were driven up to the "resort" by a crazy driver along a road that requires a bit of work so it was not the best start, once we arrived we were amazed by the views, the room we had required cleaning, we got the cleaners to reclean it but was still well below what would be acceptable, we were there on a Sunday and Monday so there is no entertainment in the karaoke bar, the bar has an extensive range of wine and spirits on shelves behind the bar but they are just for show, its beer Lao or soft drinks, the pool was nice and great views over the dam, the area surrounding the pool had the previous nights debris all around though, this could be a fantastic resort but it is run down and requires an overhaul,the staff were all nice and helpful

Long Ngum view resort is just out of Thalat, right next to Ang Ngum reservoir in a little village. It's the perfect place for travelers to explore the man made lake without having to get a tuk-tuk every morning to it. We stayed in one of the Laos style houses, which had an incredible view of the lake and islands. Our room had complimentary bottled water, and wash things.
It was a little more expensive than we would usually go for (180.000 k) but it was cheaper than the only other option Salapa fishermans round the corner.
Cleanliness wasn't quite up to the standard you would expect in this price range but it wasn't too bad, although there were a couple of little holes in our wooden floor, and we did get quite a lot of ants in our bathroom. None got into our room though.
There was no plug socket for the Tv though
we had air con and a fan and our beds were comfortable.
There is also a very nice pool which you can see the incredible view from, a restaurant, bar and free pool table. Breakfast was included in the price.
We arrived on a weekday and the place was almost deserted, it was nice and quiet to relax in but the staff weren't very attentive and nothing was really set out for breakfast till we asked where it was and bar was quiet and empty.
On Saturday night however the place filled up and all the locals came for a drink. It was like it was a different place. The staff were friendly and attentive, an English speaking woman even turned up and the bar has music. Breakfast on the weekend also seemed like a different place, a buffet style spread. Although we had got everything the day before we had just had to ask.
I'm not sure whether i would recommend going in the week or weekend, i would say a day of both is perfect. the week is very nice to relax and weekend is a bit busier with more going on. Depends on preference really.
