We were greeted at the airport (transfer service) by JP, an expat American now living in Laos. Nice guy and very helpful. He took to us the hotel and showed us the ropes and talking us through the must see attractions in and around town. He also helped us book anything we were keen to do over the course of our stay. We had a little villa room and it was very clean and a great experience. The staff were all super friendly and it was a pleasure walking around at the hotel. Venturing in to town was easy... Just wait for the hourly(ish) shuttle or venture over the old bridge and grab a tuk tuk. The old bridge deserves a special mention. We arrived at night and wanted to head straight in to town and had missed the shuttle. In the dark, with a light drizzle, just walking the bridge was an experience in itself. Over the following days you kinda grow attached to it :) speaking of bridge experiences, you can also walk to town via the bamboo bridge. Definitely worth the stroll as you get to walk through the village above the resort. It cost a tiny amount (maintenance fee), but I believe it is seasonally reconstructed and not always available. If this place had a pool it would be perfect, it can get pretty warm! Our stay at Le Bel Air was fantastic and we will endeavour to get back... ASAP
