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.

Waking up to the sounds of the birds every morning, bathing in fresh clean water creeks, hiking throughout Dreamtime's beautiful paths, eating unbelievable organic delicious food everyday, talking to beautiful people from all over the world, kitties, flowers, music, sleeping in a beautiful private bungalow, laying on the...

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

A unique experience, totally relaxing, immersed in nature. The accommodation is simple, with no luxuries (not even electricity!), and that is all part of the appeal. Mike and Michelle are very welcoming and provide all necessary help to find Dreamtime and to enjoy your stay. The food was superb. If you're looking to completely get away from it, then this... More

We rode our bicycles to Dreamtime. It just 1.5h away from Vientiane and a great route to explore the smaller villages along the Mekong. The food is outstanding, the company fabulous and the staff is very caring. The bungalows are within the forest, the beds are on the hard side. But we slept very well. During the day we explored...

Dreamtime was a perfect break. We hired a moped from Vientiane and Followed the directions Jonas gave us. It's quite a trek on rough roads but worth it when you get there. It is really welcoming and relaxed. You can do as much or as little as you like. Chatting to the other guests by candlelight in the evening over... More
