THE SANCTUARY pakbeng lodge
Sitting on the banks of the Mekong, the Sanctuary Pakbeng Lodge is midway between the World Heritage Town of Luang Prabang, and Huay Xai, the main border crossing between northern Thailand and northern Laos. Both towns are reachable by boat, within a day or by land, with a minivan only 5h drive from LuangPrabang.
The Lodge is an ideal starting point for walks into the forest, for a few hours or the whole day, to see villages which are off the main tourist trail. The Lodge also faces the Mekong Elephant Park, which is dedicated to the protection of elephants and offers a wonderful opportunity to discover the life of an animal important in Lao culture.
The Sanctuary Pakbeng Lodge suggests that you stay a few days in this protected area off the beaten track. You will enjoy the comfortable atmosphere, the picturesque sunrise and sunset over the Mekong, and the comings and goings of the different boats that dock near the Lodge's beach.Your visit will be one of relaxation but also of unusual encounters and an immersion into traditional Lao life.
"The lodge is located up on the hill with amazing views of the Meekong from our balcony . All staff made us feel most welcome, were friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and inviting. We dined in the open restaurant and enjoyed the set menu which was a soup, curry, beans and oyster sauce, spring rolls , rice and mango sorbet. All was very delicious. "
