    Description

    Hello!

    My name is Bounlisth, I am 38 years old. Me, my wife, our 4 kids and dog are excited to welcome you in our resort. Me and my family run 2 businesses: a travel agency in Thakhaek and a hotel which is one hour drive away from Thakhaek. Our hotel, located near by Namthuen reservoir in Nakay, is also very well situated because the village is one of the stops for the motorbikers doing the Taekhek Loop. A breathtaking loop lasting maximum 4days that attracts many tourists. Our hotel is set in breathtaking nature therefore this peaceful environment is a perfect spot for travelers tired of hustle and bustle of busy cities.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    During your time off, you can explore nature, go fishing with us but one thing is important for you to know, in Nakay there is no rental bike, only possible in the next town Taekhek (3 hours by bus or 1 hour 30 by car).

    Of course if you do come by with a motorbike, there are plenty of caves and nice waterfalls to see as we are situated on the Taekhek Loop.
    Also everyday there is 4 buses/day for Taekhek on the market square : 7.30 am / 8.30 / 12.00 or 4.30 pm.
    There is a local market (morning/night) nearby, walking distance from the resort, if you wish to get your daily necessities.
