We stayed at the Lao Spirit Resort for 2 nights while on our honeymoon last year and we had such a great stay!
The bungalows are beautiful and have been really well thought out. I particularly liked the outdoor shower room and the large terrace.
The food was superb and good value, especially considering the remote location of the resort.
The staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful.
There is an elephant sanctuary around a 10 minute walk from the resort, along a well-worn but fairly tricky path. We took an elephant ride through the river, which was lots of fun! We also walked along to the nearby village where there are a few small, local, shops and a small temple. We stopped for a Beerlao to watch the world go by.
We booked a hill-tribe trek which was hard going in the rain, but really worthwhile, especially as we'd booked massages on our terrace for when we returned. I would highly recommend a massage - it was amazing to be massaged whilst looking across the river valley to the mountains beyond and listening to sounds of the jungle.
Lao Spirit Resort really feels like you've left the world behind, we left feeling renewed and revitalised.
I would highly recommend this resort to anyone, however people who have difficulties walking would find it hard to make the most of this fabulous place.More
