Tad Faek waterfall is one of the recommended sights on the large loop through the Bolaven Plateau, and should you need to stay the night and don’t mind simple accommodation, there are several rustic bungalows. The raised bungalows are made of bamboo thatch walls, wooden floor boards and have a tin roof.

Rooms have a bed, mosquito net and there is electricity, a few hooks and a window. Doors have an inside slide lock but are rather flimsy. A roll of toilet paper, small bottle of drinking water and towel are provided. The shared bathroom is a basic squat toilet and bucket shower.

There’s no view of Tad Faek from the bungalow. It overlooks the river, the top of the falls and surrounding greenery. It’s a short walk to the falls and the swimming area, and the bonus with staying overnight is more time spent here.

Travellers should arrive by 17:00 as the falls restaurant staff all leave and finding food will be an issue as there isn’t much of anything around here except for Tad Houa Khone 3 km down the road—this is the alternate accommodation option in this area. It’s camping but the facilities (toilets, restaurant) are better there.

We do believe that at least one member of the family who own the guesthouse stays overnight on the property, as there is a house at the gate. But expect it to be a very quiet place and in low-season, a lonesome stay.
