Ban Lao: The traditional Lao house

Ban Lao is the latest addition to the Lodge. The house combines the peaceful privacy of it’s own garden surrounded by majestic mango trees and the most amazing view of the sacred mountain and Mekong River.

The comfortable queen bedroom overlooks the legendary Mekong river.

In the other room, you’ll find a desk, a wardrobe (and safe), a coffee-tea corner and a minibar (included and refilled daily).

Story

Back in 2016, this charming old wooden house with its typical architecture of Southern Laos was about to be demolished in a neighboring village, as villagers now tend to build out of concrete.

To preserve a modest part of this cultural heritage, the Lodge acquired the house and moved it to a beautiful location facing the Mekong. It was then fully renovated, upgraded to modern standards and comfortably furnished to become the lodge’s first exquisite mini suite.
