Nam Kat Yorla Pa

A peaceful sanctuary in protected Laotian rainforest
Nam Kat Yorla Pa, Laos

Immerse yourself in nature at this relaxing rainforest resort

Set deep within the sanctuary of protected rainforest beside the Nam Kat river, Nam Kat Yorla Pa is a haven of peace among the trees. Each of the quiet cottages, villas and suites has floor-to-ceiling windows and a private balcony or terrace so that you can enjoy the tranquillity of the surroundings from the comfort of your room. Relax to the rhythms of the rainforest with yoga on the outdoor deck, or feel the benefit of natural treatments in the jungle spa.

The resort’s chefs skilfully blend both culture and nature to create a menu that embodies the traditions and flavours of Lao cooking, made with locally-sourced ingredients. The gentle rush of the river creates the perfect natural ambience to each meal, from fresh breakfasts enjoyed on the terrace, to picnic lunches and moonlit dinners. Private cooking classes are on offer, allowing you to fall in love with the flavours even more.

The native fauna and flora are at your fingertips, waiting to be discovered on gentle nature trails. Keen eyes might glimpse a flash of colour from one of the many butterfly colonies which make the forest their home. For the more adventurous, a canopy walk to Nam Kat waterfall, followed by ziplining, waterfall abseiling, or mountain biking, is a thrilling way to explore your natural surroundings from a different perspective.
