There are several magnificent waterfalls along Road 16 and Falls View Resort puts travellers close to the lot.

Located at Tad E-Tu (Itou) waterfall, the resort formerly known as Ban E-Tu Resort has little cottages that cantilever along a slope. There’s no view of the falls from the 37 bungalows but guests can certainly hear the water from the balcony.

We inspected the property late 2016 just after it came under new ownership and management. It’s difficult to say how the service or amenities will develop, however, the bungalows themselves are solid and boast a pretty exterior of terracotta roof and gingerbread trim.

The interiors are simple and have good bones: solid wood floor, functional furnishings such as a vanity and luggage rack, a balcony overlooking the trees and the river that will soon plunge over the edge, a decent modern bathroom boasting a separate shower area and sink with countertop. Decor is minimal and that’s not a bad thing. There’s a mini fridge, TV and fan—no air-con.

Tad E-Tu itself doesn’t require hours to explore; it’s simply a careful walk down to the base to get a good view of the impressive single cascade tumbling over the cliff. You can get quite close to the falls and swimming is possible in the dry season. Falls View Resort is simply a place to rest for the night, putting you closer to the string of waterfalls than Pakse or Paksong, while enjoying a stay in natural surrounds. Expect a quiet experience, unless a tour group pulls in.

The turn offs to Tad Fane and Tad Champi are around 2 km east, Tad Yuang is about 3.5 km east. Falls View Resort is 36 km east of Pakse, 15 km west of Paksong.
