Finding Mekong Estate in Luang Prabang was like finding my "Nirvana". We stayed there for two weeks and have been home in Australia for three. Not one day goes by when I don't think about it and wonder about the reality of moving there forever.
Staying at Mekong Estate gives you the chance to experience quiet and private accommodation in the luxury of your own "home" with uninterrupted views of the Mekong River and your own private 'sunset' every evening from the endless pool surrounded by the garden of Eden.
Go out your own gate and there lies the friendliness and cultural experience of Lao people, getting on with their lives but welcoming newcomers with a smile and a "sabaidee". The fence between the two only acts as a physical barrier but not a barrier between the warmth and friendliness on both sides of the fence giving you an experience incomparable to other accommodation.
I cannot recommend Mekong Estate any more than just to say IT IS HEAVEN ON EARTH, along with the food in Luang Prabang, the cooking school at the Tamarind, the smiles of the children and the tangerine robes and black umbrellas of the passing parade of monks.
To Mr Khamphahn and his crew at Mekong Estate, we long to be back and once again, thank you.
