La Folie Lodge
La Folie Lodge is located on Done Daeng, the “Red Island”. This charming car-free island, part of the Champasak cultural and natural heritage, sits along the Mekong River, on a beach facing the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Vat Phu. 27 luxurious rooms are set in wooden bungalows, each with private balcony and magnificent views over 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 traditional Laotian hospitality.
Relax by the pool with a freshly shaken cocktail, discover the tropical garden before enjoying authentic Lao or classic Western dishes at the restaurant.
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. The Vat Phu, UNESCO World Heritage Site, is just a 15 minutes boat ride away and the Boloven Plateau as well as the 4,000 islands offer great excursions’ opportunities.
