As being a peaceful halfway stop for travelers from Luang Prabang to Houay Xay, Pakbeng Lodge is the ideal accommodation with incomparable views and quietly fresh atmosphere that make it be the wonderful stays for sojourners along the Mekong.
The Lodge offers 20 elegant rooms with traditional Lao decoration of Hmong wall hangings and bamboo. Each accommodation also boasts spacious, private balconies revealing stunning views of the last boats returning to port and changing colors over the mighty Mekong as the sun dips behind the mountains at the river’s edge. Two restaurants feature traditional Lao and Thai specialties paired with an impressive selection of French.
The highlight for most guests and complimentary to those staying at Pakbeng is an excursion to The Mekong Elephant Camp across the river, which is dedicated to the protection of elephants in Laos and offers unforgettable elephant rides along the riverside.
