Ban Pako Resort

Located just an hour from Vientiane and cradled in the banks of Nam Ngum River is the Ban Pako Ecolodge Resort, a perfect place where you can relax and take a break from the hustle and bustle of sight-seeing.

At Ban Pako Resort, guests always have options — you can choose to explore the interesting site of the 2000-year old temple where it is located, or you can opt to just lay around in bed or a fancy hammock enjoying the panoramic sight of the Mekong River and the tall trees that surround it. Indeed, it’s a perfect place to chill and experience the Lao countryside — think about enjoying your drinks and delicious servings of authentic Lao dishes while being serenaded by the sounds of the birds in the nearby trees.
