Only lacking a pool, but grass and shade or sun. Rooms very spacious - double bed larger than twin. Iron, hairdrier, bowl of fruit. Staff very efficient and pleasant, remembering roomnumbers for you. Spa massage uk prices, but most relaxing. Aircon a little noisy at first.
Meals good, a bit western, but not cheapest, and cold stuff kept cool on buffet. Mecong weed worth trying with breakfast! Area slows down by 10pm, but they are up early. Sunset below hotel better than up on Mt. Phousi. Local proper market an experience - if you have time, real crush and some squalour. Night market for tourists all good humoured bargaining. Not far to walk into centre and other restaurants, but tuk-tuks easy to get.
