The Mandala Ou is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are stylish and impeccably clean; the views from the terrace across the river to the limestone cliffs are stunning and the staff are so friendly. The owner Nic is a really nice guy and was extremely helpful in helping us sort out our onwards transport. The vibe is luxurious and relaxing. Visit if you can. Once you’ve had a dip in the infinity pool looking at a view to die for you won’t want to leave!

I was super impressed with Mandala Ou. It was close enough to Nong Khiaw to walk to town. But far enough away to be in a quiet spot on the river. The attention to detail there is impressive. No complaints, only good things to say about this place. Highly recommended!

We spent three nights at Mandala Ou and loved it. The team manages to create a very relaxed and laid back feel whilst taking great care of the guests. Kenny was a very welcoming host. The rooms are charming and the riverside location is fab. Great food too. An easy walk into town or just grab a free bike. Kenny organised an excellent day trip by riverboat for us. We loved Nong Khiaw nad could have stayed longer!
