Stayed for 3 nights when visiting friends in Bangkok, The room was large, clean and beautifully decorated with mosquito nets and silk runners on the beds and dressers. The balcony looked out over misty, lily and lotus filled ponds and tropical greenery and was a peaceful, welcoming window into Laos. We were told that the rainy season was just starting (July 2 week) and it did rain for the entire day on our first day, but the second and third days were cloudy but great temperature - high 20s. The mattresses were very firm, which made the bed less comfortable than it looked, but this was the only disappointment in the room. Unfortunately, the restaurant food was a real disappointment compared to food in general in Luang Prabang. The breakfast buffet was standard and good quality - fresh fruit, noodles and egg dishes that changed daily - but we had dinner one night where we seemed to be the only customers. The western food dishes - club sandwich - was fine for kids, but the green papaya salad was overpowered by the strong shrimp paste, and the red curry fish featured a small, dried-out filet with uninspiring coconut sauce. The clientele seemed to include a number of group tour customers, which may explain why so few guests were eating dinner there, but would be interested to hear the experiences of other diners. Although there is a shuttle to the Villa Santi Hotel in town that runs daily, we found ourselves taking tuk tuks most of the time, as the time between shuttle runs could be 1.5 hours or more. We were also surprised when the shuttle driver was unwilling to drop us at a restaurant on the way to the Villa Santi Hotel (Manda de Laos) as the location of the restaurant was right en route and we didn't see it as inconveniencing anyone. The distance to the Villa Santi hotel was approximately 5.5 km, but is an interesting shuttle run. If the hotel improves the restaurant, this could be a real destination hotel, as guests can walk around the rice paddies and beautiful grounds, and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere.
