We stayed in one of the bungalows for 2 nights in April. We thought the bungalows were lovely with a hammock on the balcony, lots of children playing outside and nice H'mong textiles as decoration inside the room. We ate at the restaurant one night (fish special for 2) which was excellent and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere. Similar to other reviewers we didn't eat breakfast there because there didn't seem to be anyone around at that time. Also we had read about the project in advance and would have liked to help out if possible during our stay, but we were kind of left to our own devises although this was probably our fault for not being more forward.
Overall compared to other accommodations in the town, although Daauw house is quite basic it is unique and somewhere we will remember.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Daauw Home has beautiful wooden bungalows painted just halfway up the temple stairs to the left for 60,000 to 80,000 kip, shower and toilet inside, balcony with hammock and a relaxing terrace overlooking the Mekong River. There are also Tents for 40.000 kip. Because it is halfway up the main street only a five minute walk you feel you have actually arrived in the valleys and mountains of Laos. All profits go to their Woman Empowerment Activities for the Ethnic Minorities in the Mountains of Laos. ... more less
