Certainly the best hotel on the island but be aware there is absolutely nothing to do on the island. If you want a boat trip you have to drive off the island and head south, so why stay on Don Khong island? In itself the hotel is not that great as a resort. We choose not to eat in the hotel and reasonable food can be found at one of the several restaurants just along the road as you turn left out of the hotel. The place we ate at had a menu in English with photos and the waiter spoke English. As you can imagine the food was significantly cheaper than in the hotel. Breakfast was weak but in the time of Covid you have to lower your expectations. The rooms are ridiculously huge. The bed mattresses are very soft, if you like that then enjoy. I could only stand one night of sinking without trace. The hotel kettle in the bedroom was full of dead ants but otherwise the hotel is clean.

For us it remains the best accommodation to visit the 4000 islands. The hotel is located along the Mekong on the island of Don Khong, the largest of the 4000 islands. It has large and spacious rooms that overlook the two swimming pools perfect for relaxing after a day around the islands. Perfect the possibility, two hours by boat, to leave directly from the Hotel to visit the best known islands, that of Don Det and Don Khon. Special thanks to Philipe, who accompanied us to the islands and who allowed us to eat fresh fish every evening cooked very well by the hotel restaurant.

Was booked at this hotel for three nights: March 8th, 9th and 10th by VietVision Travel, in Vietnam. I advised VietVision Travel many times in the long process of organizing this tour for me that my two top requirement for hotels is cleanliness and airconditioning. I booked in, went to my room, turned the air conditioning on, turned the temperature setting to 18, waited half hour, and the room temperature was no where near 18. I paid more money, upgraded my room, and still the temperature was nowhere near even 20. Yes it may have been near 22 degree if I stood right under it. But even after one hour the room was still warm. I am definitely not inclined to upgrade again. So I am going to forget about my other booked two nights, compensated or not, and ask VietVision to change my itinerary, and get out of here. The owner or manager should check their air-conditioning systems, service them, and, if that does not help, have them changed.

Laos and these island are packed with good food and eating options. At this restaurant across the Pon Arena Hotel, it’s theirs, the kitchen was unable to deliver anything and what we got for our dinner was uninspired, sloppy, greasy and very badly done. It’s supposed to be the first restaurant around there, but tradition and history didn’t learn them anything, Im afraid... Now only a very well located tourist trap... avoid it, please.

I strongly recommend the Pon Arena Hotel in Muang Khong, South Laos. A delightful place to stay while visiting the beautiful SiPhanDon (Four Thousand Islands ) in the Mekong River. The owner and his staff had been our friendly and gracious hosts. Come and enjoy your stay
