La Folie Lodge
Located on the charming Done Daeng Island, a free car island, part of the Champassak cultural and natural heritage landscape, La Folie Lodge sits along the Mekong River, on a beach facing the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Wat Phou. Our 27 luxurious rooms are set in wooden bungalows, each with private balconies and magnificent views on the Mekong or the garden. Come and enjoy the exceptional natural beauty and unspoilt charm of Southern Laos, together with first-class facilities and the legendary Laotian welcoming.
Relax by the pool, refresh yourself with a cocktail or discover our tropical garden before enjoying the Lao or Western dishes of our chief, Mrs Ohn.
With an amazing view on the Mekong River and the Wat Phou mountains, it is the ideal spot to cool down after a day in the hot sun.
The poolside restaurant offers continental cuisine and Asian specialties, from early morning breakfast to late-night snacks.
Enjoy the swimming pool at sunset, cycling around the lovely Done Daeng island, or meeting with the locals is only a glimpse of what the surroundings offer. Wat Phou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is just a 10 minutes boat ride away and the Boloven Plateau as well as the 4,000 islands offer a great half or full day excursion.
On the island
Enjoy Don Daeng’s authenticity: unspoilt huge sand beaches crowded with fishermen and lazy buffaloes, wild forests and enchanting birds, plains of rice fields, local small villages with one floor typical wooden houses and numerous Buddhist temples, by foot or cycling.
Outside the island
La Folie Lodge is the perfect spot to enjoy the best of Southern Laos, ranging from the What Phou temple to the 4,000 islands, or drinking a local coffee on the Bolaven Plateau after 18 holes on the Pakse golf course.
