Phong Nha Lake House Resort features a 24-hour front desk, a business centre and free parking on site. It provides complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout the property. The resort is conveniently a 10-minute drive to Phong Nha Cave, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Nhat Le Beach is a 20-minute drive, while Thien Duong Cave, Dong Hoi Train Station and Dong Hoi Airport are accessible with a 30-minute drive. Relax and revitalise in a peaceful and modern lakeside hotel resort. Situated along the picturesque Dong Suon Lake, the Lake House is family friendly and provides luxurious and affordable lake view villas, bungalows and dorm-rooms that will suit families, couples and backpackers alike. During your stay your every need will be catered for. The Lake House is run by a Vietnamese/Australian Couple, Tham and Tony, who ensure all guests are comfortable and have access to all of the modern convenience facilities including air-conditioning and WIFI. You could be enjoying a meal on the balcony; strolling through the tropical garden; having a refreshing drink in the swim up pool bar or taking a dip in the lake itself. Whatever your day involves you will be surrounded by a combination of traditional Vietnamese buildings and a breathtakingly stunning natural landscape. The architectural inspiration for the Lake House Project was a traditional Vietnamese house first built in 1954 in the North of Vietnam by skilled tradesmen and workers from the local village of ‘Ha Giang’. During the ‘Dien Bien Phu’ operation in 1954, the house was used for meetings by the Vietnamese army, headed by top ranking General ‘Vo Nguyen Giap’. The house was disassembled and re-constructed on site in early 2013. The established Lake House is the centrepiece for the eco village and presently functions as the reception, lounge bar and on the second floor large restaurant with expansive views of the Dong Suon Lake and surrounding mountains. The Lake House, villas, bungalows and facilities are all constructed using natural materials, timber, stone, mud, brick, cane, thatched roofing, Vietnamese terracotta tiles and hand-woven textiles.

Visited for a swim and kayak in the lake, had a great lunch and drinks. the owners and staff were very friendly and made our short visit really enjoyable. The place is beautiful and the accommodation over looking the lake looked amazing. We will visit again for great meal with a view and will stay there on our next trip to phong nha. Highly recommended.

The staff at Phong Nha lake house are heroes to us and we own them a debt of gratitude. Nevermind the amazing facilities and views, great price, great rooms, pool, excellent food, and fantastic service. They are truly caring and wonderful people. When you leave, you are family (see picture of stairs). We got stuck here with a few others when everything shut down due to the virus. Two nights turned into seven. Not only did they look out for us, keep us informed, help us with travel, and communicate with the government, but they did so with absolute pride and joy. I saw them take in other weary travelers who had no where else to go. We were the last couple out before they closed down. They still made sure we were fed the entire time. Most of the staff left and just a few stayed near around the clock to look out for us and keep us fed until we could get home. Their care and amazing service was still there. They even were giving us discounts. Always greeting us with a smile, working around when we wanted to eat despite us repeatedly asking when was convenient for them to serve us lunch and dinner. The manager and owner are amazing, making sure we were comfortable and informed at all times. They helped others with their travel arrangements. I cannot say enough about them. I left and sadly said goodbye. I hope to see them again. Please visit my friends at phong Nha lake house. They will take care of you. They are amazing people.

I wasn't really looking forward to this. My friend is a caver, and I am not. But it was my favourite stop in Vietnam. It is sold as a 2 star, but my experience there was better than many a five star. The staff, from the clever, articulate, charming owner down to the drivers, were more helpful than could possibly have been expected of them. The area is beautiful, the lake ourside your window is amazing. And Phon Nha is probably only popular with cavers. That's a mistake. It's a real look at VIetnam. Have a look at the Christian churches, another surprise.
