Sala Thongyon allows guests to experience real Lao life and real Lao hospitality. Guests can look forward to lovely simple wooden bungalows and a warm welcome.

Owned by two sisters, expect a family feel to this down to earth, verdant refuge in the southern end of the city. Found down a local lane and set in a garden bursting with starfruit and coconut trees, the traditional raised wooden bungalows offer comfortable accommodation.

Emphasis is on the natural with brick and bamboo thatch walls and wood balconies. It is homey and uncluttered, though not without mod-cons such as fan, reading light and plug, and ensuite bathroom with western toilet and hot water shower.

What you really come for is the serenity of the garden and the warmth of the generous hosts, well worth the extra distance to Talat Yen, the eateries and Thai consulate. Motorbike rentals are available for 70,000 kip a day, bicycle for 15,000 kip. Breakfast is not included in the tariff, it’s 15,000 kip. Even if your visit to Savannakhet is all visa business, be charmed here.

Homely, relaxing setting.
