We stayed here in January for three nights in the dry season to enjoy the real Laos - jungle trekking, elephant trekking, mountain biking, wildlife and total peace and quiet. Comfort bungalows on stilts had ensuite, basic lodges on stilts had shared facilities, very clean, nearby. No air con, but fans, in temperatures of 35 degrees (30 at midnight) and...

I stayed at the Kingfisher Ecolodge for my last night in Laos in September 2008, and wished I'd been able to stay longer. It's in a beautiful location overlooking paddy-fields, and the rooms have a fabulous balcony with hammocks for chilling out. It rained when I was there which was unfortunate (especially as the roof leaked on my bed ...)...

We spent just one night at Kinfisher Ecolodge on our way from Champasak back to the Bolaven Plateau and Pakse, but we wish we had spent the whole holyday there. The Bangalows are just a dream, the nature and sightseeings nearby are incredible, people at the Lodge, from Massimo (the owner) to all the waiters and waitress are easy going,...

We spent two nights at the Kingfisher Ecolodge in January 2008. This place is off the beaten path (near Champassak in Southern Laos), but well worth the effort to get to. We flew into Pakse and arranged to have a driver stop at Wat Phou on the way to the Kingfisher (a worthwhile stop). Massimo, an Italian, and his Laotian...

We stayed three nights in one of the Eco rooms ($16 per night for 2 of us) and had the most wonderful, restful time with views across the wetlands that were a feast to the eyes, especially if you are willing to get up with the sunrise. The food served in the restaurant was fabulous, with fresh ingredients and a...

There is available a daily public transport service (Songthaew, i.e. open truck with rear benches) leaving Pakse at around 12:00am from Km 8 south bus station (Lak Pet) to Ban Khiat Ngong and Kingfisher Ecolodge. The time of departure is approximate. The same transport leaves daily Ban khiat Ngong to Pakse at around 8:00am.

The bungalows are the greatest I have seen in Laos! There is an exceptionally beautiful surise, if you get up early enough in the morning. You might even see some elephants walking across the rice fields. The restaurant serve great Lao food, and can provide you with lunch bags with great sandwiches, if you are plan to do some of...
