Simplicity is the word, simplicity helps loosen emotions and widen our mind, and with this word in our mind we tried to link the natural environment with the resort buildings, giving a priority to the first one in search of the right balance between human intervention and nature wonderful architecture.
Six double room stilt wooden bungalows (30 sqm.) with a spacious veranda (14 sqm.) set along the wetland border and immersed in the wild growing flora of this area.
From the ideas of designer Vincent Fischer Zernin, traditional building materials and workmanship have been blended with modern concepts and architecture. The front wall of the rooms is entirely built by glass to give the opportunity to our guests to admire the landscape and the surrounding nature at any moment thus feeling an incomparable sense of spaciousness.
The hot water (solar powered) shower room, which is separated from the toilet area, is built to give the possibility to have a view through the front wall in the deep green and blue colour shades of the wetland. The bungalow's lighting is supplied by an individual solar system or directly connected to the hydroelectric powered grid.
All rooms have a ceiling fan and electrical plugs.
In your bungalow you will find:
- Coffee/Tea facility
- Safe box (27 cm x 16 cm)
Also available are our “Eco” rooms at an affordable price. All rooms have a view over the wetland and they are built by wood and bamboo while lighting is supplied by a mix of solar system and grid electricity.
All rooms have a wall fan and electrical plug.
In a separate building two shared toilets and two hot water shower rooms (solar powered) are provided.
Our open two storey restaurant, where Lao and western dishes prepared mainly with organic food are served, is set up directly over a pond and it overlooks the wetland area. (click here to display our menu).
The restaurant is open to everybody, either for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

No television or music is available at Kingfisher Ecolodge because we believe that the wetland's sound of nature is the best soundtrack for our guests.
