We stayed at the resort as a group of friends and really enjoyed the remote location and peace and quite. However, unfortunately the resort did not meet our expectations and was not value for money. The small details need to be improved to ensure this resort offers what it says

Dear Mjay7, We deeply respect your relaying your personal impressions of Zen Namkhan, and we hope this reply will address your concerns, as well as fully inform the Trip Advisor community. During my years as a GM, one of the things I have Always urged guests to do is to report anything unsatisfactory. As our guests know, I visit everyone at breakfast, and often again in the evening, to ask if there is anything we can improve upon. I was indeed informed of the two spiders, the great distress they caused, and an unsatisfactory mojito (replaced free of charge). And that was all. Nothing else. It is therefore most disconcerting to read a list of complaints, none of which we were made aware of. And all the more discouraging to not be provided the opportunity to address the complaints, so as to provide the optimal and best possible experience for you. Because that’s our goal. We want the best for our guests! So I encourage everyone in the Trip Advisor community to always fully report any unsatisfactory experience, whether at a hotel, restaurant, excursion, etc. Don't hold back! That way the management can quickly address the problem and ensure you have the quality experience you rightly expect, and are entitled to. Mjay7, we wish you all the best for your future travels. With My Best Regards Evelyn

My father and I stayed at the ZenNamkhan at the end of September. We stayed in the Serenity Villa which included two twin beds and a more private room with a queen bed and aircon. The view from our balcony was absolutely beautiful. It was a perfect place to sit and enjoy a cup

Hi 'Emily G', We were sincerely flattered that you chose to stay with us during your special trip with your father. And we're even more pleased that it was such a great experience for you both. Your comments about your Villa will be most helpful to the Trip Advisor community, as are your observations about our menu. As our readers know, we are outside of town, and for us that that means a commitment to ensuring our guests have a full range of dining options, whether Lao or international. Thanks again 'Emily G', and please pass on our best regards to your father! Best Wishes From Luc, Francis, Evelyn and everyone here at Zen Namkhan Resort

We stayed for 3 days and loved it. Beautiful property with stunning view. Waking up to this view and just sitting down at the deck enjoying the sound of nature whilst sipping tea was just what we needed for a getaway holiday. Food is just yummy. They use the freshest

Hello Brandon B! Brandon, it just means the world to us that you feel your stay with us was one of your best experiences in SE Asia. Especially as it was your honeymoon. Thank you so much for such wonderful words. And actually - we almost feel that We should be thanking You! It was so much fun planning those 'honeymoon surprises'. I think for all of us the best was when you arranged for us to tip-toe down to your bungalow, while you and your wife were finishing dinner, to set tea-lights everywhere, so that a few minutes later, after we had tip-toed out, and you opened the bungalow door for your wife, the interior was aglow with dancing candlelight, everywhere. So thank you so much for posting, and especially for letting the Trip Advisor community know that if they want something special, we will do our very, very best to make it happen. Our very best to you both from Luc, Francis, Evelyn, and everyone here at Zen Namkhan

It was truly a nice experience to see the elephants and water buffalos coming down to the river in the morning, eating and drinking. The resort is located in the middle of the djungle with everything you can experience there... The staff and owners are both familiar and

Dear 'mnilss_252080', Water buffalos and elephants - we're so glad you got to experience those. We very much want our guests to experience the beauty of nature, in Laos. And yes, fresh made food. Takes a little longer, but we think it's worth it, and we're glad you did too. Thank you for posting! We very much appreciate it. With Best Regards Luc, Francis, Evelyn and everyone here at Zen Namkhan Resort
