Dreamtime is nestled in the beautiful forests outside of Vientiane, Laos. The cabins are made of recyclable materials and it was a pleasure to wake up to the morning light creeping through decorative bottles. The lack of electricity and the need for candle light and incense (given at your arrival) made the whole experience more ethereal and dreamy (as the... More

I stayed at Dreamtime for a bout a week! I had such a great time!!. It's an excellent place to relax, take your time to read, rest and meet nice people. Mike and Michelle are very friendly and nice people, making you feel like at home. The place is far away enough from the city to relax but close enough... More

Bottom line: Dreamtime is my favorite place I've ever paid to stay. Why should you give it a shot? Novelty—There's no place in the world like it. I know that in writing this review I may be "blowing up the spot," but places with unadulterated nature and true silence are increasingly rare. Seek them while they last! Restore—If you've made...

I was living in Vientiane for a month and was invited to go out to Dreamtime with a friend. I actually had no idea what Dreamtime was to the point that I asked if we needed to bring food and alcohol. Ha! Silly me. Like previous reviewers have stated, the food is indeed delicious. I posted a photo of the... More

We really enjoyed the place, the nature around, obviously the food which is amazing and the care-taking couple Mike and Michelle who will do anything for you to... More

Yes, I know it is really a backpacker place, but for the price, it was definitely lacking. Throughout Asia, breakfast is included in most accommodations, but not here. Because the place is so remote, we had to eat all meals on site. While quite tasty, they were relatively expensive, for being served on the ground. The accommodations are extremely sparse... More

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.
