A lovely place, a return to nature, Dreamtime was the perfect close of a SE Asia journey that was a learning experience from beginning to end. Mike is a charming host and we have remained friends since my visit there. I recommend it highly for its sheer tranquility and closeness to earth as it can still be.

What a little gem, finding a paridice at the end of a dusty trail! Greeted with a cold drink and warm wonderful smiles. Lounging in bungalos beneath the cool jungle canopy. An experience that with never be forgotten by my heart and tastebuds ummm!

We had the best nature experience staying in Dreamtime! If you love the outdoors, the stars at night, the animal and plant kingdom then this is the right place for you. Basic hut accommodation, no electricity or wifi which is part of the charm! This is the place to relax

This was a great place to stay for a few nights. Really calm and peaceful. The food was incredible (get the buffalo burger). As a solo female traveler, I only have one complaint, but it's a big one. On Sunday, when Michelle went to Vientiane for work, Mike asked me if I liked massages. I replied yes, thinking I could... More

Hello shoshana.. Thank you letting us know how you feel and I'm also very sorry you felt uncomfortable in dreamtime. Mike had been offering free massage to pretty much every guest when he had free time and I know he didn't have any intention to make you feel that way. Take care Michelle . Hi shoshana I'm very sorry to... More

Dreamtime is a little off the beaten track which makes it a perfect place for an eco-retreat. I love the design of the common lunch area it is quirky and fun. If you are looking to sample a little piece of paradise this is the place. If you go in wet season there is a gorgeous creek/river to swim in... More
