A well maintained place with enough to keep my 11yo entertained for the day. The food was good and the pool bar served good cocktails. Definitely a nice place to spend our “rest day” in LP.

So this place advertises 12-7 "happy hour" even though it only applies to a select menu of cocktails which themselves are already overpriced. The entry fee is 30,000k PLUS another 50,000k deposit! The rubber rings in the pool also have sharp metal prongs protruding from...More

Located a bit outside the city center, you need to take a tuk-tuk to get there (10.000 KIP / pax). The pool is clean and their is a bar in it! Only a few sun loungers, so I advise to arrive early! They advertise in...More
