I stayed at the ecolodge in February this year and I can honestly say it was one of the most memorable and enjoyable experiences of my trip. Staying at the ecolodge is a really precious opportunity to experience Laotian village life...far away from the tourist...More

Started our weekend away by being picked up by a hungover staff member and things went progressively downhill from there. Greeted by Barnaby the 'resort' manager and had to reel back from the excessive alcohol fumes coming off him. Couldn't see the room as electricity...More

First of all, you were here as part of the same group as the previous poster and you, as a group, obviously didn't like it, which clearly puts you in the minority given previous reviews, but fair enough. I can't please all of the people...More

Hi, Rivertime is located about 30 km, or a 50-minute drive, outside of Vientiane. The easiest way to get here is to contact me, preferably by e-mail us, or, alternatively, by phone (Sam (English/Lao) on (+856) 20 5810... More

rivertimeresort is the first part of the address and it is a hotmail account (TripAdvisor doesn't allow you to post email addresses!). The owner's name is Barnaby. He is English but also speaks French, German and Lao.
