This place was amazing! The bungalows were the perfect size for two people, each with a big front porch and hammock. The bathrooms are just a sink, a toliet, and a showerhead all together, but work great. Not much hot water though.
The food was very good and had a really great variety of food, even some western choices. The people were unbelievably accommodating and friendly. We couldn't have asked for better service.
The power is only one for an hour an half around dinner time, but after that you don't really need it. We sat be the fire each night, had beers, and chatted with the others staying there.
We were also able to bring our dog, which was very nice.
Quite the amazing experience. I will definitely go back when I am in Laos again!
