I loved it here! This unique place was one of the quirkiest and most memorable places I stayed on my cycle trip through Laos. The guy who runs it is a very cool Frenchman who has a lot of interesting stories to tell. The dining/lounge area holds an astounding collection of butterfly specimens, mostly collected in the nearby forests by the owner himself. The buildings are both artistic and eco-friendly, and this particular hippie kid felt completely at home.
The food was delicious, French style cooking. The accommodations are bungalows like American wilderness cabins on stilts. They have electricity and bathrooms. They are not the swankiest but definitely nice and well kept. The surrounding area is very lovely and mellow farm land. If you are not on a bicycle or moto you may find the dirt road approach difficult.
I had cycled up 13 from Vientiane so was happy to shake off the dust and weariness, hang out on the riverside and watch the sunset, then chat with the owner while I shoveled in some dinner. Nam Lik Eco Resort is quiet and rustic, and will appeal most to the laid-back travellers rather than the party crowd.
