La Folie Lodge

Located on the charming Done Daeng Island, a free car island, part of the Champasak cultural and natural heritage landscape, La Folie Lodge sits along the Mekong River, on a beach facing the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Wat Phou. Our 27 luxurious rooms are set in wooden bungalows, each with private balconies and magnificent views on the Mekong or the garden. Come and enjoy the exceptional natural beauty and unspoilt charm of Southern Laos, together with first-class facilities and the legendary Laotian welcoming.

The Lodge

Relax by the pool, refresh yourself with a cocktail or discover our tropical garden before enjoying the Lao or Western dishes of our chief, Mr. Lerth

Swimming Pool

With an amazing view on the Mekong River and the Wat Phou mountains, it is the ideal spot to cool down after a day in the hot sun.


The poolside restaurant offers continental cuisine and Asian specialties, from early morning breakfast to late-night snacks


Tropical trees and flowers have found a shelter, as well as the 39 different species of birds.


Enjoy the swimming pool at sunset, cycling around the lovely Done Daeng Island, or meeting with the locals is only a glimpse of what the surroundings offer. Wat Phou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is just a 10 minutes boat ride away and the Boloven Plateau as well as the 4,000 islands offer a great half or full day excursion.
