Had a very good time there! The place has nice bungalows and fancy hotel-style rooms and it is about 10 km away from Vang Vieng. The view is absolutely lovely and there is a nice campfire area at night. You also feel close to the local population with children playing in the river and people bathing and washing clothes.
Basically, are far away from the noise and televisions playing 'Friends' reruns, but it also means that you have to get there on your own by renting a motorbike or deal with the tuk tuk maffia.
As in the rest of Laos, staff is pretty much nonexistent for the most part, so don't hesitate to enter the kitchen if you need anything or are hungry, otherwise you can wait for hours. That being said, the food is pretty good also and the cost is reasonable, but charging 10,000 kips for a bucket of ice did seem a bit greedy.
The bungalows are basic but fine, although I a little bit on the expensive side for what you get. I also had a serious spider problem, with big spiders running around the toilet.
Overall, a welcome and recommended break away from the city.More
