I stayed here for 4 days on my own as it was to be a relaxing break from a tour of Asia. I have read the reviews of others and found them honest and fair. Much of what I say has been said before but this is up to date as I was there 7-11 Dec 2014. The last 10k... More

Thank you for your nice review. We would like just to take this occasion to inform our guests that the access road (road no. 18) to the lodge has been just repaired and it is now in good conditions. Regarding smoking area we would like to precise that it is separated: second floor (restaurant) is no smoking area, first floor... More

In the case of my review for Kingfisher Ecolodge, less is definitely more, so little do I have to say by way of negative comment. The welcome was friendly and unpretentious, the atmosphere is laid back and easy-going, the dinner choices are of a high quality (whether Italian or Lao) and the location in the middle of an unspoilt village...

The cost went up quite a bit due to the transport to the middle of no where at 100,000 kip each one way, due to the wet season. It was an adventure just organising the transport - but it worked! Charming. Glamping almost. No ac but great fans. Showers OK to say solar. Breaky good. Food a bit pricey and... More

First of all many thanks for your nice review of our lodge. We would like however to point out that we do not advertise our food as organic even if it is, partially, if you read that on other websites or guide books I'm sorry but unfortunately it is beyond our control what other people write about us. We also... More

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

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
