Tad Lo Lodge is the best accommodation in town by a country mile.
Massive solid bungalows are dotted around an expansive treed garden which provides respite from the relentless Lao heat. The rooms feel a lot more special than others in town and are designed tastefully with such things as pebbles on the bathroom floor and unusual chairs for lounging on. The fan rooms will be adequate for most people although air-con suites are available at a staggering premium should you want the very best. It's a great spot on the river about a kilometre upriver from the main Tad Lo village. Elephants on site can be ridden for 100,000 kip.
