It's a toss between excellent and very good; maybe the only thing which stopped me from going to excellent was the decidedly very western menu at the restaurant: hamburgers and fries! Some Lao items -which were excellent; try the stickyrice and banana dessert!- but not too many. That's a pity given the rich Lao cooking tradition. Having said that, for Christmas eve we were treated to a magical cocktailh music, dinner on the terrace overlooking the Mekong -with thousands of lights in the trees- which was delightful and lantern release in the sky! Can't recommend enough for a Christmas evening event!
The room we got was large and very pleasant overlooking the interior garden; fruit plate; little gifts every night taken from Lao culture...Very pleasant staff; bicycles; Very clean. Close to everything...
Great breakfast with delicious little coconut custards, fresh fruits, croissants etc
