The eco-friendly accommodation is idyllically nestled in the Lao countryside, based on ecologically and socially sustainable principles.

It's a nature retreat only 12 km from Luang Prabang, surrounded by protected area with primary forest, and yet escaping the city's hustle and bustle, offering authentic bungalows with a twist of style for only 20 guests. Set amidst a lush tropical garden, it's a heaven for a variety of beautiful butterflies.

Reconnect yourself with nature in this small private paradise & discover undisturbed surroundings off the beaten track.

On the day of arrival we will hand over a hiking map, which allows you easily to explore ethnic villages, waterfalls, rice paddies, viewpoints and traditional farmlands.

Or you may prefer relax by the pool, read a book, savour our own organically grown food and pamper yourself with a steam bath and a massage while indulging in nature's beauty with astonishing views on forested mountain ranges.

Accommodation consists of 9 charming bungalows spread out on a small hill, with views over the lush tropical garden and the mountains. All rooms are built with locally grown wood and come with bamboo ceilings and polished wooden floors, and are just a few steps away from the swimming pool. Free 3G- Wifi is in the restaurant/reception area available, sufficient enough for mailing, social media or planning your next steps.

To keep with the theme of your retreat, there are no TV in the rooms.

Luang Prabang slows your pulse and awakens your imagination with its combination of world-class comfort and spiritual nourishment. Sitting at the sacred confluence of the Mekong River and the Nam Khan (Khan River), nowhere else can lay claim to this Unesco-protected gem's romance of 33 gilded wats, saffron-clad monks, faded Indochinese villas and exquisite fusion cuisine.

Beyond the evident history and heritage of the old French town are aquamarine waterfalls, top trekking opportunities, meandering mountain-bike trails, kayaking trips, river cruises and outstanding natural beauty, the whole ensemble encircled by hazy green mountains.

- Lonely Planet

I have travelled in Laos twice and I can tell you it’s one of my most favourite and sacred places. I hold it close & dear to my heart.

From the incredible sunsets on the banks of the Mekong to the gilded wats (temples) and romantic French colonial buildings to the vibrant & colourful night markets and delicious local cuisine (Mekong River weed a surprising favourite), not to mention the magical and serene landscape, it’s one spectacular country!

On a sad note, Laos also holds the tragic honour of being the most heavily bombed country per capita in history. From 1964 to 1973, the U.S. dropped more than two million tons of ordnance on Laos during 580,000 bombing missions—equal to a planeload of bombs every 8 minutes, 24-hours a day, for 9 years.

Hence why I’ll be donating a portion of the profits from this retreat to help continue to clear the 70 Million plus unexploded bombies still littering the country.

Don’t worry, you won’t be heading into these areas or at risk, but it’s something close to my heart that I want to help contribute towards.
