Discover more along the Mekong River

More than just a river, the Mekong has been Indochina’s vital lifeblood for centuries. As the seventh longest river in the world, the Mekong begins from its headwaters in the Tibetan Plateau to the South China Sea. The banks of the river carry stories of both ancient and modern life, and the people who live along its shores still rely on it for their livelihood.

Explore the mighty Mekong and immerse yourself in the waterway’s unique culture, heritage and activities at Secret Retreats located nearby or on the banks of Mekong River in Thailand and Laos.

Located among unspoilt, lush subtropical mountain forest, the resort offers day excursions to the infamous Golden Triangle where Thailand, Burma and Laos meet at the Mekong River as well as off-site bamboo rafting (available December and January).
Overlooking the Mekong in Pakchom, Loei Province, these villas offer stunning views and tasty Isan home-cooking. Paddle out on an evening canoe ride through beautiful jungle countryside along the mighty river.
Here, bicycle adventures journey from The Island Lodge to Unicorn Island, join handicraft workshops, visit local markets, pick up cacao from its tree and many other treasures of the Mekong Delta.
 Embark from The River Resort’s private dock on a custom-made riverboat that will take you to your private sunset cocktail party on the sandy beach of Turtle Island in the middle of the Mekong River. 
Formerly the residence of a famous poet, Lao Poet Hotel has been refurbished into an urban jungle sanctuary. Head to the large rooftop and pool overlooking the Mekong River to enjoy sunset cocktails paired with Lao and western cuisine.

Stay tuned for the upcoming launch of Michelin-starred “Paste” restaurant at Lao Poet... 
 Cruise between the Golden Triangle and Luang Prabang, with a stop overnight at Luang Say Lodge – a rural resort located peacefully above the Mekong River with a traditional Laotian architecture blending artfully into the jungle backdrop. During the cruise, explore Lao villages to experience local daily life of the regional ethnic minorities including handmaking artisanal crafts and making traditional Lao whiskey.
