Address: Thadokkham Village, Vientiane, Laos
The resort’s 12 medium and family-sized lodges each provide views over the river, are moderately priced and comfortably fitted-out to suit the requirements of today’s eco-tourists.
The grounds of Rivertime Resort encompass a beautiful, lovingly-created flower and organic vegetable garden, several acres of old-growth forest, a floating restaurant on the Nam Ngum River, small Internet café, fish ponds, and children’s adventure play area.
The resort offers several trekking trails, cycling trails and guided tours, ranging from a 20 minute stroll through the old growth forest in the resort grounds to half-day local area treks or cycle rides on the resort’s mountain bikes. One or two-day treks through the mountainous primary forests in Phou Khao Kwai National Protected Area are also available, and river tours to the many areas of interest along the Nam Ngum river leave from the Resort at regular intervals.
Homestays in local villages, Lao cooking classes, Lao traditional massage, rice farming experience, ‘baci’ ceremonies, local dance exhibitions, village crafts demonstrations and meals with local villagers are also arranged by the resort. Tours of Vientiane’s most fascinating temples, monasteries, museums and many other sites of interest take guests to the city and local areas in the resort’s minibus.
