Eco-Friendly, Traditional, Natural
About Kingfisher Lodge
Our property is immersed in nature and in a peaceful location bordering the Xe Pian National protected forest overlooking the Ban Kiat Ngnong Ramsar protected wetlands. We are also perfectly located for a visit to the little known historical site of Phu Asa perched on a nearby hill a short walk away. Our access to some of the last remaining elephants in Southern Laos makes a visit all the more appealing.
Enjoy one of our 7 spacious comfort or 9 deluxe stilted, individual, private bungalows where traditional building techniques and locally sourced materials are blended with modern concepts and architecture. Each bungalow has its own unrivalled view of the unique wetlands that border the property. The front of each bungalow is made with glass inviting an abundance of natural light to flood the room.
The bed is positioned to maximize the sunrise view, allowing guests to watch as the sun ascends over the serene horizon that extends to the mist-draped forest in the distance giving an incomparable sense of space. All bungalows are equipped with a comfortable double or twin bed and hot water supplied by a solar panel heating system. A vanity unit accompanies the individual toilet and shower arrangement. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided for guests’ convenience, air conditioning and mini bar are also provided in our deluxe bungalows. A spacious veranda complements a luxurious lounger for a relaxing stay.
