I had lunch here with a group. You eat out on a terrace with views. It was a good meal with mostly vegetarian dishes plus a tasty fish dish. Three different fruits for dessert- fabulous mango (some of the most delicious I have ever had), pineapple and jackfruit.

After a great nice ride with the motor from Pakse arrived in Kingfisher ecolodge, The manager welcomed me like a king, the room was a palace, nice bed and terrace with a view over the nature reserve, I thought I was in a safari park of pure nature! After a short refreshing swim in the brand new pool, I walked to the restaurant, the pork steak was juicy and nicely decorated with salads and delicious pepper sauce. The service excellent ! later in the evening I walk to my wonderful lodge-king size bed. I took a shower ( warm water from the sun panels ) And I sleep like a rose in this brilliant place. If I get the chance i will definitely come back, it's so relaxed. Thanks management !

Beautiful location by wetlands with wonderful sunrises . There’s a new 10x7 meter swimming with views of buffalos and birds .Brilliant! There’s a dawn bird watching walk which is great to do . ...in the late afternoon go for a 2 hour round trip up the Phua Asa . It’s really interesting to see . The lodge shows you a report written about this enigmatic ‘citadel :temple . The food here is terrific . Wi-fi is slow but who cares . This is place to relax not to have obsessional behaviour on phones . People who turn this place down need help ! Never mind five stars which I don’t do that often . I’d give six if I could !!

Dear Traveltone1, What a great review for us heading into our weekend. We are very happy you have enjoyed the birding with us and you hike up Phou Asa's Acropolis. Also much pleased to see you have enjoyed the culinary performance of our lovely local kitchen chefs. And you are right of course, Kingfisher is a place to get away from it all, WiFi is only there to let your friends and family know what an enjoyable time you have at the Lodge. Hope to welcome you back sometime (soon).

It’s idyllic . A real place to rest up during a crazy chase around the sites and sights of Laos and Cambodia. It’s quiet .There’s a lovely 10x7 metre new pool to cool down in on a deck looking over the wet lands containing buffalo and birds. There’s a dawn bird watching walk that can be arranged...definitely worth doing. There’s a 45 minute walk up to the mysterious Phou Asa which has fabulous views of the area. The food is very good , . The hospitality is exemplary ,courteous and efficient. The bungalow rooms on stilts are comfortable. I’m told some people won’t go there because of the slow WiFi. Well that’s their loss. If you need 24/7 internet all time when you should need to see a doctor because of obsessive compulsive disorder. Go there to prove you can do without it !

We had a lovely stay here. The recently built cabin was very comfortable and the balcony was the perfect spot to sit and watch the wetlands it overlooked. We particularly enjoyed cooling off and splashing about in the swimming pool especially after the elephant trek we took. This was great fun and our son enjoyed leading the elephant and sitting on her shoulders. We also took a half day nature walk which I'd also recommend. The staff were very helpful. We really enjoyed our time here and exploring the local surrounds. It's an excellent place to stay and relax.
