I love it here. They have two great pools, one on the river and one across the dirt street where your villa is which is smaller. Laos is as country as it gets, very inexpensive and farmland everywhere. With that said you can get anything you want from bottles of good California, French & Spanish wine to any beer, bread, the best sticky rice on the planet and anything your heart desires in this magical land. This is Laos so if you are expecting nature, a culture that is unlike anything you have experienced, natural farm food & river fish that is excellent in my opinion, however for picky people that need 5 star treatment & freak out over an ant crawling on their precious plate, there might be a problem with this type of person, hence these types of people are missing the point of why you traveled to LAOS in the first place. The Laoasian people are warm, happy, loving, and smiling all the time! The roads are dirt. The waterways are beautiful but sometimes plastic from the tourist world and first world styrofoam remind you of how this beautiful farm land of a country is forever affected by China in the North filling this planet their endless factories of plastics! Laos is the safest place you will visit in your life & this little gem of a resort is a great bang for your buck... the aesthetics, the artwork, the architecture and the overall feeling will make you feel very lazy and relaxed as you plop into the pool.
