My wife and I stayed for three nights in one of the excellent lodges. Beautifully fitted out and very tastefully appointed, well maintained and clean. The lodge is true to its claims of being eco-friendly, and also directly supports the local village. The view of the wetlands from our lodge was beautiful, and the peaceful and easy walk to the...

On the way back from 4000 islands to Pakse, we stayed at the Kingfisher ecolodge for 2 nights. There are few other places available in the neighbourhood of Kiet Ngong in the Se Pian NPA but not so many. We were with 2 families (4 adults / 5 kids) so the bill was rather high to Lao standard at the... More

Thank you for your review. I would like only to precise that our prices may be rather high (even if it is a quite subjective matter) not only because you won't find another location like ours in the neighborhood but essentially because we have higher costs than the others. All our supplies must be purchased by us in Pakse town... More

Thank you for your review. I'm not going to be "politically correct" in this reply therefore I would like to inform you that If you read some older reviews you will see that many people said the opposite of what you wrote, but they are surely wrong. As you may know, but I'm not sure, there may be unfriendly hotels... More

Stayed 2 nights in a comfort bungalow. There were very few other quests staying- hence it was very quiet. The view from the room was lovely, as was the view from the restaurant. The bungalows are very spacious and clean, Good shower, but there is no where to sit inside apart from on the bed. The lighting was rather inadequate... More

We arrived at the Kingfisher Lodge after driving for 8 hours or more! We were given one of the new lodges which was very comfortable and had a spectacular view of the countryside .

We stayed in a individual bungalow, with a view on the surrounding wetlands, with water buffalos and elephants, which, together with the nearby village, and the colonial bungalows gave you a jungle experience that is really worthwhile. Beautiful surroundings, and common parts, elephant ride, relaxing and quite atmosphere, far away from all the touristic activities. Food is good, but pricey,... More

We stayed three nights there on our way to Si Phan Don. The bungalows are great, quite sacious with all wooden furniture, looks like old time. From there you can see the wetlands, with elephants and buffaloes (especially at sunrise). The restaurant and bar are fine, with some italian dishes, good location above a pond. The hotel arranges trips (prefer... More

We spent 2 nights at the KingFisher Eco Lodge. It is important to remember that this is not an hotel, and as such offers a wholly different experience. You will have to adapt to the swamp type noises at night and share your environment with the wildlife and bugs. The rooms are beautiful and the food very good. The staff... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your nice review of our lodge and I completely agree with you about Kingfisher Ecolodge not being a "normal" hotel but a more of a place where people can experience a closer encounter with tropical nature which, of course, may not always be pleasant for some people. Many greetings to you and your... More

This was our first stop on this return visit to Laos and we were tired from the usual frenzied activity prior to departing on holidays.

I spent two nights in one of the eco-houses, with two rooms per building and shared bath. The setting itself is beautiful and tranquil, and it was fun to see the elephants grazing in the meadow beyond the lodge. The views from the shared houses are somewhat obscured by random vegetation and the grounds are weeding and poorly kept relative... More
