Luang Say Lodge

Top choice lodge in Pak Beng

Principally for the use of passengers aboard the Luang Say Cruise, this traditional hardwood-and-rattan lodge has stylish bungalows in a pretty garden, overlooking a dramatic stretch of river, with fans and hot-water showers. A terrace restaurant overlooks the Mekong, for breakfast and dinner. Be warned: it's a steep and sometimes slippery climb from the jetty to the hotel.
