What a wonderful place! I stayed here for one night before my stay in Luang Prabang. Zen Namkhan was a wonderful surprise and a real jewel. The owner has carved a place of true beauty and peace out of this wonderful jungle. The central area is lovely, very nicely landscaped and well-composed with a natural pool and a two-storey building housing the dining room and a lounge. My room was a small villa with a wrap around balcony overlooking forest trees filled with singing birds. I found the European-style dinner delicious and the gin and tonics equally so! The service was very good, and there were very few guests to divert their attention.
Note, a friend of mine who stayed there was somewhat disconcerted by the "open-air" quality of the lodgings. The resort design is very in-tune with nature, and part of the design is that the villas keep you connected to the vibrant jungle outside- with shutters for windows and with a gap between the top of the wall and the roof. Fabulous fine-mesh netting hung over the bed keeps the bugs out and gives a wonderful atmosphere. So, if you are super-anti-nature, like my friend is, this might not be the place for you! As for me, it was one of the most sublime and lovely hotel experiences of my life.
