The River Resort is located on 400 meters of naturally landscaped Mekong River frontage in the south of Laos, close to the renowned Wat Phou UNESCO World Heritage site. The Resort's architecture and decor are contemporary Southeast Asian. 22 of its 28 guest rooms have stunningly beautiful, panoramic views of the Mekong River; and the other 6 have fine views of beautiful evergreen rice paddy, flowering trees and tranquil ponds. Each guest room has an indoor and an outdoor shower and other high-standard amenities. The Resort’s open-air Dining Sala, overlooking the Mekong, includes a restaurant offering Western and Laotian/Thai cuisine, alfresco dining on its Riverfront lawns, a cocktail/juice bar, and a rooftop lounge for private meetings. Two infinity swimming pools and the Resort’s onsite Spa complement a relaxing stay. Its two private Riverboats offer casual journeys on the Mekong and sunset cocktail cruises, including - when the Mekong is at ebb - spectacular sunsets viewed from a soft sand beach on a remarkable uninhabited, sandstone island offshore the Resort. The River Resort is an ecologically and environmentally responsible hotel, committed to the use of replenishable bamboo for most of its furniture, organic and hydroponic "farm to table" gardens, recycling of inorganic waste, composting of other waste, as well as solar heated hot water for its kitchens; and is also committed to the improvement of the education of its local staff and the livelihood of its local community.

Yes, it's a long "hike" (several hours' flight) from Luang Prabang in the North of Laos to Champasak in the South of Laos. There are many things to see and do in the South, including the largest waterfall in S.E. Asia and wonderful Wat Phou, a UNESCO World Heritage site dating from the Angkor Period in Cambodia. The River Resort is a 30 - 40 minute tuk-tuk ride to and from Wat Phou.
Easiest way to come from Luang Prabang is by air, generally there are one or two flights a day directly to our international airport, in Pakse, about 45 minutes' drive to the Resort. There are also daily flights from Luang... More
Easiest way to come from Luang Prabang is by air, generally there are one or two flights a day directly to our international airport, in Pakse, about 45 minutes' drive to the Resort. There are also daily flights from Luang Prabang to Vientiane, the capital, which many guests enjoy visiting for a day, before catching the next morning's flight to Pakse. Hope to see you soon!
