Angnamtong View Resort and Draft House Restaurant, about 90 minutes from Vientiane Capital in Meuang Feuang, held its soft opening in March 2022 and is already attracting guests to its villas, floating pavilions, and water sports on the Nam Tong Reservoir. The secluded yet easily accessible property is set to fully open before the end of this year.
The resort’s super-tall villas are perched on the hillside with stilts, and overlook the lake through floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors. The villas comfortably sleep two, but there is room to bring in extra beds for families. The interiors feature nicely varnished wood ceilings, walls, and floors, giving the room a modern, natural feel. Each villa opens to a balcony with ample seating and a net-like hammock that hangs from the base.
Below the villas, a long bamboo dock presents the resort’s focal point. It runs parallel to the shoreline, with more than 20 salas set on the lake for friends and families, who want to lounge, eat, drink, or dive into the calm waters for a swim. Kids can safely cool off in small pools that extend out from the pavilions and dip into the reservoir like nets with floors.
The artificial archipelago also serves as the centre for a variety of water activities. Guests can paddle kayaks around the lake’s inlets and peninsulas, before tying them off at their salas. Jet skiers can bring their water scooters to rip around on the smooth surface. Tubes are also available for just lazing on the lake in front of the pavilions.
The resort’s Draft House Restaurant offers a menu starring local Lao favourites including fish, laap (minced fish or pork salad), spicy somtam, and noodle and rice dishes. Guests can eat at the restaurant or have meals and snacks, along with cold soft drinks and beer, delivered to their pavilions on the dock. Sunset dinners at the salas are already a big hit.
Angnamtong View Resort presents a great overnight stopover on the overland route between Vientiane-Vang Vieng-Luang Prabang. Guests staying at Meuang Feuang’s Nam Lik Riverside accommodation will find the Angnamtong a pleasant daytime diversion. It’s off the beaten track, yet only about 90 minutes from the capital and less from Vang Vieng, making it perfect for day-trippers.
