I just spent a few days here to relax after a busy week of travelling and sightseeing in Laos. I was expecting something a bit more special, although it was comfortable and the staff were nice. It does have a lovely location, which is a nice place to chill out for a few days, but I just didn't get that feeling of luxury that it claims. I booked the sala villa with hydropool, of which I think there is only one, and I'm so glad I did. As others have mentioned, the terraces outside the rooms are pretty public, and people walk past all the time. My room, though, had a more private area at the back with the hydropool, and I really enjoyed this. Food was reasonably priced for a hotel, but nothing special. The breakfast had a reasonable amount of choice, but it was all a bit bland. I was never offered a top up of coffee, or a second cup, so had to ask for this, which really shouldn't happen in a so-called luxury hotel.
I had one massage at the spa, and this wasn't overly impressive but ok.
The pool area is nice, but can get crowded at busy times. It is showing wear and tear, though, with odd leaks of water here and there from what must be the fountain system.
Again, others have mentioned that there are a lot of steps, and I did notice some people puffing and panting their way up.
The room was nice enough, and the bathroom was lovely with big bath, decent shower and his and hers basins. The bed was firm but comfortable. Minibar was poorly stocked, but to be honest when you can get what you need from a shop just next door to the hotel you don't need the minibar. Wifi was reasonably reliable, although did drop off a couple of times during my stay.
Check-in and check-out were efficient and quick.
Would I stay here again? I'm not sure. But if I did it would have to be in the same room with the hydropool, as I don't think I would be happy without my private outdoor space.
