Mandala Ou Resort, Nong Khiaw
Mandala Ou Resort
Our rating: Superior | Property style: Boutique Hotel
Located in the beautiful remote village of Nong Khiaw in Northern Laos, Mandala Ou offers simple but comfortable accommodation. Set high on the banks of the scenic and tranquil Nam Ou river, offering spectacular sunset views over the virgin rainforest and karst limestone mountains of Nong Khiaw, Mandala Ou offer 10 bungalows, mixing traditional Lao style with all the modern conveniences you can expect from a home away from your home. The hotel has a good local restaurant, a traditional Lao herbal steam sauna, and a raised yoga and massage sala, all overlooking the river and mountains beyond. Yet another reason to visit this beautiful region of Laos - still largely untouched by tourism. This small property has taken proactive steps to help combat plastic pollution by partnering with Trash Hero Laos and BambooLao. Since July 2018, the resort has eliminated plastic water bottles and straws, replacing them with high-quality refillable aluminum bottles and locally crafted bamboo straws, both of which are available for guests for a nominal fee. The resort also offers free water refill stations in reception, and when purchasing local ingredients and supplies, provides reusable cloth bags to their partners to minimize single-use plastic.
