Owned by a French count, La Folie Lodge is a tranquil and comfortable lodge set in front of a Mae Khong River beach. It’s the best place to stay on Don Daeng and ideal for exploring this corner of rural Laos.

La Folie consists of 26 stilted wooden bungalows, simply furnished with their own private balcony. For families or friends travelling together there is also a private two bedroom residence. All rooms have views across the wide sandy beach and river, and from where you can catch sight of Mekong life in water buffalos cooling off in the waters and fishermen flinging their nets.

The bungalows are set within lush gardens and centred around the pool and adjacent open air restaurant. Choose between the Laos or Western menu as well as spectacular views across the river to the pre-Angkorian Khmer ruins of Wat Phou (8 kilomteres away).

Explore Don Daeng by bicycle or on foot, and take the time to witness the natural beauty and unspoilt charm of the island.
