First came the cafe, which, by the way, serves up the best food in Champasak, now Nakorn has a fabulous guesthouse to compliment the riverside dining.

Completed in 2016 by a friendly Belgian and Lao duo Jack and One, the guesthouse has five modern rooms appointed with quality furniture and finishings. When we visited in November 2016, they had just completed the building yet were already fully occupied. Our inspection was limited to the sole room on the upper floor, which is also the only room they’ve done in a traditional style—all the ground floor rooms are more contemporary.

The river views are also none too shabby.

This upstairs room has wooden floors, sleek modern furniture, clothes rack, a long table with mirror, minibar, air-con, WiFi and balcony that boasts a fantastic view of Wat Nakhone and the rolling hills behind it. The brightly lit bathrooms are great: contemporary fixtures, electrical outlet at the sink and a shower stall with two types of nozzles including a rain shower head.

Of course, with the guesthouse being so new, everything felt fresh and new. We imagine that the four ground floors rooms are just as tasteful and comfortable. Best of all, there are Mekong views and sensational food just a hop from your door.

Nakorn Guesthouse is located a kilometre south of the roundabout or three kilometres from the boat landing.
