I only spent two nights here, very happy with the staff and service. Bring Mosquito repellant, like all places in Laos there are mosses to deal with. Lovely rooms and I like that food too. My only complaint is that I didn't have enough time with the Elephants.

The place is really nice and the comfort bungalows just incredible. Even the Eco option with shared bathroom is nice. All comes with a very nice view on a green grass plain with elephants and water buffalos. Also the elephant riding in the village is nice and worth doing it. One issue of this place is the price. if I... More

Great ecolodge, we had a bungalow in front of the wild with two elephants saw from our hammock on the balcony :), plenty of water buffalos, cows, geckos.... great time. Fans, mosquito net, safe... every thing you need in fact. No need of aircond because the nights are fresh. Very surprised to see some of the comments about the owner,... More

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.

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 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.
