We have stayed at the River Resort 3 times at the so far and all I can say that it is awesome. The staff are friendly and will bend over backwards to accomadate you, both David (the chef) and Lanna (front desk) will help you in every aspect of your stay. It is a child friendly place and our son (2 yrs old) just loves it. I really think that this is one of the best places to stay whil you are in Laos

Of our whole amazing Indochina tour, this place was the most outstanding. We arrived at night and could not sleep from the anticipation of seeing this exceptional mekong river view at dawn. We stayed here during our honeymoon and were welcomed with beautiful flower arrangements on our beds in one of the most stylish rooms I have ever stayed at.
You can't really say what is the most amazing factor here. Is it the wonderful people (we love the british chef who makes equally outstanding breakfasts, lunches and dinners; we adore the thai manager who is so friendly, cool and smartly dressed; and we really envy the lovely lovely couple that is now running the place)? Is it the dreamy setting just above the mekong river in an unbelievably tranquil and beautiful area? Is it something in the air that seems to slow you down comfortably wanting to make you stay indefinitely? Is it the sleepy village of Champassak and their Spa which makes you feel like you've already reached heaven?
More things to point out: The lovely infinity pool, the opposite side of the river that has no development, the very friendly laotian staff who find us europeans sunbathing a bit coocoo, the indoor/outdoor shower, the fishball-starter from David, the Kayak-Option around turtle island, the excursions to the Bolaven waterfalls, the swarms of butterflies in the garden, and even the fact that sometimes, you just won't get that ham or rum or..., because that's just the way it is in Laos... stay here as long as you can, it's well worth it.

A Paradise-like resort, maintaining the original ecological environment, beautiful buildings, spacious and clean rooms. Particularly fond of their swimming pool, a few steps away from the majestic Mekong River. Under the moonlight and stars we felt an extraordinary quiet and peace. The waiters are very friendly, always smiling. The food is stellar, from presentation to taste, and worthy of high praise, a variety of spices mixed perfectly to our wishes.


If you want to completely relax for several days and forget about anything troublesome, while also visiting charming Champasak Town, the nearby Wat Phou World Heritage site, the 4,000 Islands and the Bolevan Plain, this resort is perfect. Because of cloudy weather, this time I could not see the sunrise from the terrace of our Riverfront room, leaving a little regret, but it also gave me a good reason to visit once again.

I pick up this place from tripadvisor review, very satisfy. Four of us had two river view rooms, I left curtain open all night for stunning view from my bed in the morning through the glass panel, laying there for another half an hour before a cup of coffee at balcony. Bathing, two shower rooms outdoor and indoor rain shower with good pressure hot/cold water, separate toilet from bath room. Dining at resort every night, love the way they cook their fish both in Lao and western style. The Manager Mr. Ton took care of us well, recommend a fine day trip for us, enjoy chating with him over the drink before dinner. I don't think I have less expectation than other, this place is really good if you like a nice isolate place to stay.

Room Tip: Get river view room is a must
