Located on the banks of the river Mekong, across an area known as the 4,000 islands, The River Resort is the most amazing resort I stayed at. If you do not have anything planned and you want to take a week relaxing in a beautiful location overlooking the Mekong river this is the place to stay.
It offers everything you want; well appointed, luxurious bungalows dotted around rice paddies and a stunning infinity pool, delicious local food and staff (mostly local villagers) who cannot do enough to please you. We were upgraded to a bungalow overlooking the river which was a real treat as we were able to sit on the balcony to enjoy the most wonderful sunsets.
River Resort is also one of the best eco-friendly and self-sufficient resort in the Champasak province. It grows it's own rise, has a vegetable garden and buffaloes to provide milk. Everything you will eat in the restaurant is pretty much home-made and delicious .
River Resort is highly acclaimed by TripAdvisor and quite rightly so.
The house pets are so cute and include a pair of water otters.
