We stayed here in the deluxe room one night on our Mekong cruise with shompoo cruise. The hotel staff was wonderful, the rooms lovely & the food delicious. Loved the fire bowl they brought to our table to keep us warm at dinner!! The stars at night were incredible and the bed was very comfy.
Only downside I can think of is no mini fridge in room and bit of hike up hill from river (you can get help from porter w luggage though)
We did not go on any excursions as we left on our cruise first thing.
Sunset is fabulous and elephants come to the riverbank across the river at 7am!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sitting by the bank of the Mekong, Pakbeng Lodge is halfway between the World Heritage Town of Luang Prabang, and Huay Xai, the main border crossing between northern Thailand and northern Laos, both towns reachable within a day by cruise.Attached to each of the Lodge's 20 Superior Rooms, 8 Deluxe Rooms, and 2 Suites, is a large terrace overlooking the river.The Lodge is an ideal point of departure for walks in the forest of an hour or a day, towards villages off the tourist roads. (Please see our section on Excursions.) It faces the Mekong Elephant Camp, which is dedicated to the protection of elephants in Laos. There, a wonderful opportunity exists to discover the life of an animal that contributes a strong element to the traditional culture, by participating in a walk or with their morning bath.The Pakbeng Lodge suggests you stay a few days in this protected area far from the beaten tracks. You will appreciate the comfortable atmosphere, the picturesque sunrise and sunset over the Mekong, and the comings and goings of the different boats that dock near the Lodge's beach. Your visit will consist of utmost relaxation but also of unusual encounters- an immersion into traditional Lao life. ... more less
