“We spent three nights at The River Resort. The resort is 1st. class in a very remote location built along side the Mekong River. The grounds of the property are mostly rice patties. When we were there, the rice plants were about one foot high and a lovely green. The other plants and trees are indigenous. Gardeners work daily keeping the property in pristine condition.
Our room had a wall of windows looking out over the Mekong River as well as a patio.. The large room was broken into four sections: bedroom, dressing area, WC and shower. The shower was spacious and had a door that lead to an outdoor shower (Very Nice). The room was very nice and functional.
The food service consisted of a large open area dining room with a thatched room for protection from the elements. There were no walls, and the space was cooled only by large ceiling fans. Lunch and dinner utilized the same Asian and Western cuisine menu. Breakfast consisted of a small buffet and hot food cooked-to-order in the kitchen. We enjoyed the cuisine very much. The service was ,friendly and professional. They did their best to accommodate any requests.
There are numerous activities that can be scheduled at the resort. However, since we were on a private tour, our guide and activities were all arranged.
The River Resort is truly exceptional, especially in Laos. It is a place to truly get away from it all and discover more about the people and places of this remote corner of the world”
