"We stayed just one night at the end of a Mekong Delta tour. Michel organised our pick up, which was a lovely trip in a long boat. We were greeted warmly on arrival and that feeling continued on during our stay. Staff were very friendly, polite and engaging.
The rooms were lovely and well appointed, although a small fridge would have been a welcome addition. The food was good, a nice combination of French and Vietnamese and breakfast was delicious. Fresh bread/pastries and fruit and as much of whatever else as we wanted. We went for a walk into the village and got lost on the way back. The locals were very helpful with directions and eventually we called the lodge and they came and fetched us, we were only 300m away!!"
The River Resort: "Peaceful Retreat facing the Mekong"
"Only 30mn from Pakse airport... right on the Mekong with a small island in the river in front of the resort. Huge land with trees, their own rice fields and gardens all around. It's a refill of oxygen to stay there.
Excellent staff and friendly service under the supervision of Ton, the GM.
I recommend to wake up early and admire the sunrise on the mekong from your balcony.
Great restaurant also, with very generous portions
Definitely recommended for people looking for a quiet and green environment and who enjoying activities in nature: walks, bike, boat trips..."
Rachamankha: "Perfect choice for a short getaway"
"Love this hotel in the old city of Chiang Mai. It was designed under Chinese influences. Rooms are comfortable. Some rooms have little porches. The pool is nice and quiet - there is 'service' (food/drink) around the pool area but the staff is not visible.
The breakfast is lovely. You get a variety of choices from the menu."
The Iland is magic and Slow Villas gives you the confort you need to relax. Great people working always ready to help and share experiences with you. The beach is 5 minutes walking, offering with some very good restaurants and the perfect sunset.
If you're looking for the best value for your money and for a quiet vacation where you can chill this is the right place for you. The rooms are unique and clean, food is great and the best part is the friendly stuff. We enjoyed every single minute and will definitely come back again!!!
Muang La Lodge: "So glad we chose to stay here"
"When we were looking for a place to get away from the standard visitor locations in South east Asia, this resort was proposed as an option. One of the best decisions we made on the holiday. It takes some effort to get there but it really is worth it. It is such a tranquil location, by the river with great settings for meals, the pool on the island. The rooms are excellent and the service from the staff first rate. They truly aim to make your stay as pleasurable as possible. Language is a barrier at times but we were more than ok with this as given it's location this type of resort must, as it does, put a lot back to the community. The food was of a high standard and the 5 course tasting menu for dinner really suited us. High quality food and allowing you to try dishes we wouldn't normally try. What probably added the extra touch for us though were the day trip options provided. If you enjoy walking and want to see how village life in this part of Laos is, then this is perfect. With a local guide we learned so much about the culture and were able to very naturally engage with people in the villages. Relaxing in the resort after each day made for a great balance. Muang La was a real highlight of our holiday. I thoroughly recommend it.
"Kindness and grace characterize the resort located in what must be as close to paradise in a rural setting as one can get. Thanks to the excellence of the entire resort staff, the location and design of the bungalows, the food and service, you are transported to a new level of appreciation of life. Rui, Raphael, dun and the entire staff are there to insure that your visit is as near perfection as is possible. WE visited The Resort for three nights in February when it was quite cool. No problem as blanket and charcoal fire pots were there to warm us at meals. The trip to local tribal villages showed us a part of Laos that is fast changing. The scenery on the drive was amazing. One day we walked through rice paddies and to a local temple. This is an experience never to be forgotten. You will not find a better place to get a real sense of rural Laos at a resort that combines authenticity and service. It is not only worth the cost but provides an experince for the soul that no amount of money can buy.
"We had a blissful stay for three nights. Staff was very friendly, helpful and made us feel at home. We stayed in the Yellow room which we thought was the best room in the main house as it was private, located right next to the shared coffee/tea making facilty and had a big, light bathroom.
We arranged for two temple tours through the hotel and the guide allocated was informative and a terrific photographer.
Choose this place if you want a quiet place off the touristy area but close enough to hop on a tuk tuk to Pub St in approximately 10mins!"
Tugu Lombok: "Magnificent, Fantastic, Private"
The staff and service is amazing. The look and feel of the resort is unique and very beautiful. They have two swimming pools and the bigger one has a beautiful view and is big enough. The rooms are decorated very well and fresh flowers are placed in the rooms. For a peaceful getaway, I would surely return here.
"This is my second visit to the Seeds. The garden enchants me again and again, especially the sunset at the lake is simply a feast for the eyes.
Culinary, Felix cooks at a high Level. His well-balanced dishes are professionally served by proud and motivated staff. Accompanied by the evening we were by the charming Lucia. Her courteous and friendly manner as well as her hosting abilities fulfilled every wish. All these people are united as a strong team, creating an atmosphere that invites you to linger and enjoy.
Lucia and Felix are great examples for staff management in the hospitality industry. This is immediately noticeable as a guest. It will definitely not have been my last visit to the Seeds.
