Mekong Villas

Mekong Villas is a magical retreat situated on a promontory overlooking the Mekong, its balconies and tropical garden giving panoramic views up and down the river and across to Laos. The province of Loei is one of the most unspoiled in the whole of Thailand and visitors can experience rural Thai life as it was 20 or 30 years ago.

The compound sleeps 12 people in six double rooms. Four bedrooms have en-suite hot and cold showers. All rooms but one (the log cabin) have air conditioning. There is a small swimming pool. The River House has a fully equipped kitchen so that guests can be independent and look after themselves, but breakfast is included and our staff can cook a simple Thai meal if required (the menu will depend on the availability of local produce). The villas have three TVS, two with satellite channels (all Thai TV channels, CNN, Sport channels, BBC world, Discovery channel, etc.) and two DVD players. Ban Huai Faen has a small DVD library and a good collection of books. As well as wonderful walks, cycle rides and canoeing from the house, there are great trips further afield: Phu Phra Bat Historical Park, Phu Reua National Park. Nong Khai and Huai Krating Reservoir near Loei town. Boat trips on the Mekong can also be arranged.
