It was truly my first experience in anything remotely similar to an eco-retreat but I was charmed as soon as I made it there ! Mike and Michelle are great hosts and will make sure you enjoy your stay. The lounge is a great place to lay down, relax and read with the other guests. The food was simply amazing... More

Working the daily 9 to 5 grind back home, I was really looking forward to my trip to Thailand & Laos. I was looking forward to getting away from all the distractions, my cell phone, and just relax for a while. And nowhere on my trip was I able to do that more than at Dreamtime. I heard about Dreamtime... More

Comfortable setting, very cozy, lots of beautiful protected forest, There are a several private bungalows scattered throughout the forest, shower, toilet... all the basics covered. Mike and MIchelle are very accommodating and personable people. They provided good conversation for the night. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice, quiet, natural place to relax for a few days.

The home made sandwiches you have to try!! Super awesome people there and only 25 mins from downtown VT. Mike and Michelle are... More

A place to come back to. Such a unique Atmosphere, a great hosting, and beautiful people. Close to main city, and still isolated and quiet. Just checkout under you're bed before going to slerp, and don't forget to order you're dinner in advance!

The name says it all. Dream time is your home away from home. It is the best place to come and unwind after running around in the real world. The property is set in a beautiful natural forest complete with a creek and rock pools for bathing. Come prepared to meet great people and dine by candlelight in Dreamtime's gourmet... More

We wanted to try and reach dreamtime by boat and we managed to get as far as Ban Mai. Luckily we had our bicycles in the boat so the rest of the way we cycled. It is not that easy to find but some helpful villagers put us in the right direction. Dreamtime really is in the middle of nowhere,... More

We stayed at Dreamtime to get away from Vientiane for a weekend, and can confirm that it's everything it's hyped up to be. Don't come here if you're looking for 5 star luxury. But if you actually want to unwind by the river and "switch off" then this is the place for you. The food (ordered the day before) was... More
