Dear Gusts from my favorite Asian City Ho Chi Minh, which I love to visit when I can. Thank you for your encouraging review. You have really have got the spirit of La Folie Lodge, it shows that with an open mind and heart one can have a wonderful experience on this lovely Island with its charming People, Done Daeng is unique in Laos no car just friendly smiling people and staff of La Folie Lodge. Please try and come again and recommend us to your friends. Thank u once again and we wish you good luck for 2016 and your future travels.
Dear Mr Albert M, thank you very much for this excellent review, we are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience at La Folie as well as Don Daeng island, which is truly a unique sanctuary of traditions and authenticity. We hope to welcome you again in the future.
Dear TravellerWilberyess, thank you very much for your review, the Lodge is indeed ideally located in between the 4000 islands, the Bolaven Plateau, and the protected area of Xe Pian. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed our vegetarian options on the menu. We do obviously understand your feedback about cock fighting. We chose to mention this on the map (rather than "promote" it), as it is part of the culture of the island and it is a quite uncommon experience for our guests. For the very same reason, we still have to offer meat and fish on our menu, not because we enjoy cooking dead animals, but because otherwise the hotel would not survive one season without it.
Dear Idylliv, thank you for this great review. First of all, we are relieved that you received the help you needed in Pakse. The roads of the island are not too busy but an accident can happen once in a while. Also, thank you so much for your comment about the food, it is not so often that our guest realize what we have to do to produce this kind of food on an island in Southern Laos. Should you wish to come back, please do contact us directly.
