Our coup de coeur for this place !!!
"The Hillside Lodge is nestled in the Lao countryside of Luang Prabang, 30min out of town, surrounded by protected area with primary forest including a waterfall park with impressive zip-lines. The property is a family run place offering nice, cosy bungalows with their private terrace offering a spectacular view on mountains and a beautiful karst cliff". That could be the pitch.
Set amidst a lush tropical garden, the lodge offers comfort with nice cosy bungalows, and long chairs in front of a natural scenic view, and some extras as a pool, a herbal sauna, 2 local horses (Tibetan type) and a restaurant with delicious food cooked with many ingredients coming from the organic garden, or pick up in the forest.
A relaxing atmosphere in a completely natural environment, with views of a green jungle in all shades of green, a few minutes walk to the first ethnic village. You can also chose to hike around, or to visit the "no-more-secret" waterfall to enjoy zip-lining with the best level of security.
For 2 days and 1 night stay… at least !!!
