A great place to stay if you are looking for a more rural experience . It's not too close to town so you leave the modern hustle and bustle behind. Takes about 1 hour to get here from Vientiane. Fun tubing down the river and hanging out with the locals who work at Rivertime. The time spent across the river doing a village tour gave me a great inside view into local culture. A fantastic choice!

Sam and his wife are lovely people. We enjoyed our stay here. It's quiet and far from town. The floating restaurant on the beautiful river is a place you could stay for days. And just up the road is an outdoor karaoke-bar filled with locals who'd love to have you drink Beerlaos until you sing on stage, despite they don't understand a word of English! Go for it

A nice escape from the city life. Was able to relax to just the sounds of nature, enjoyed the food on the floating restaurant and chill out. Also was introduced to a local from the village across the river. Spent the day with him and his family, walked around the village and ended up staying the night. I felt lucky to be able to experience life with a local family and they were all so welcoming. Such a great experience. Highly recommended if you're looking for something off the beaten path.

Absolutely loved my stay at Rivertime! Sam, the owner was incredibly helpful in helping me plan activities and organizing transportation. Ley, a staff member was so hospitable and invited me to dine at his home across the river with his family. I loved the eco friendly cabins, the bathrooms were my favorite part. If I return to Vientiane, this will be my place of choice to stay!

The Rivertime Ecolodge Resort was an authentic rural Laos experience. Sam and his family were very helpful throughout our entire visit and very nice. They wanted to share as much of the Laos cultural experience as possible and answer any questions we had. The lodge is located right on the river, with the opportunity to explore nearby villages via motorbikes or walking, and a connected floating restaurant for easy and delicious food. Would definitely recommend to stay at Rivertime!
