Gorgeous setting, simple but good food, friendly owners....a great escape from the city, perfect for wasting a Sunday afternoon. It's perfect for families, good food and drink for the parents, nice pool and space for the kids. Win-win alround.

My friends and I visited Ban Sufa for a day trip to enjoy a day outside of the city and the pool. Upon arrival, we were told the kitchen was closed because a staff member was sick, but we were welcome to use the garden, games, and pool facilities. However, when I left our picnic shelter to go to the... More

Ban Sufa is delightful indeed, a little bit quirky so it is interesting and beautiful. The bungalows are individual and tastefully decorated, private, no TV (hurrah!), no wifi (although this is available at the reception building) and have a perfect little balcony for sundowners. The gardens are superb for wandering and relaxing, I didn't try the pool but it looked... More

This place was charming and pleasant resort about a few kilometers from the center of Vientiane in the middle of rice fields. We were served a very good French cuisine with amazing quality products. The outdoor dining was charming, and the food very good - we had chicken pate, steak and lamp chops that were worthy of any good Parisian... More

Our expectations for this resort were quiet high after reading everyone's high regards for the place, however it just didn't live up to the hype. The resort itself was nice, the bungalows were cute, the pool relaxing and the staff (we only saw one) was very friendly and helpful. The down side... location.... I knew this resort was outside of... More

Our family have beautiful memories here in June. A nice place with fresh air and away from the noise of the city. Room is not large but clean and comfortable. I'm just not happy with bathroom. It was small and should be more moderned improvements. My kids liked it quiet and private pool. Fool was not much variety that is... More

We have stayed at Ban Su Fa for only one night, based on its many good reviews and the No.2 position in tripadvisor. We have found the place simple & magical. The lady owner is warm and friendly and so is Mr. Boontham, the only staff who seems to be doing anything, including waiting. He is more like your personal... More

We stayed only one night at Ban Sufa -- we should have stayed longer in retrospect, didn't even get a chance to take a dip in one of the the pools! Great ambiance, quiet, uncomplicated and terrific welcome from the owners (it helps if you speak French). Ms Fafa arranged everything for us, including a taxi pick-up from Vientiane and... More

A great place to get away from it all - situated outside the city, in the countryside. When we were shown to our villa I thought it housed two rooms. Pleasantly surprised to find it was one big room with the porch all to ourselves. Meals are served outside. Lovely grounds and excellent food. Delightful owners. Helpful staff. Highly recommended.

This is nature, close up. We had a bungalow backing onto paddy fields and were serenaded by a mass voiced choir of crickets and toads. Unfortunately they also bring along their friends, the mosquitos, ants and spiders who moved into our room with us. Just like camping, its the price .you pay for such a stunning rural location and you... More
