We did the 5 day package which includes offsite activities such as trekking to villages, kayaking and elephant bathing at the waterfall, as well as a massage on the deck of your room. This resort has only rooms and a restaurant (no pool), so I suggest booking a package if you bore easily. Young kids won't find anything fun to do here.
The grounds are nice. The restaurant is open all day long. The rooms are freestanding bungalows that are large, comfortable and very tastefully designed and furnished. They have a balcony with a great view. The shower is huge and is outdoors and enclosed for privacy. I loved it and wish I had one like it at home. Our room also had an indoor bathtub, but I don't think all the rooms have that feature so I suggest you request one if you want a tub.
There are two rows of bungalows. The higher row is set back from the river somewhat but has a high vantage point view. Ours was the lower row which is closest to the river. Basically the view out our window was jungle, river, and mountains and was quite picturesque.
The included activities were nice and I'd recommend you include them. At the waterfall, you can add on other activities when you arrive. I added the zip line. It's pretty expensive but I'd gladly do it again. It's a tour of the treetops down a mountain on several runs. They are good about safety so you don't need to be experienced.
When driving to the resort, I saw signs for other resorts along the river that I was unaware of when booking. I have no regrets and am glad I decided to stay one night in Luang Prabang and the rest of my time at Laos Spirit.
