Best for miles
Auberge Sala Done Khone is a sensational property and easily the best on either Don Khon or Don Dhet.
There are a number of different completely different styles of room here, but our favourite is the glamourous restored French colonial building across the road from the river. Inside this wonderfully lit building are high ceilings, stunning old tiles, fancy chairs and all manner of old world decoration. Of course there is air-con and a great bathroom with hot water. Everything about this place oozes class and rooms of this calibre would cost in excess of $120 in Luang Prabang. There are also rooms floating on the river, which have some of the best views around. They also have air-con and hot water and are wonderfully peaceful. All guests have access to the swimming pool, should swimming in the Mekong not be their thing. A top place in a top part of the world.
