The lake ride is a joyous and relaxed experience so one can enjoy the surroundings before getting back onto dry land at sunset while a sound and light show is happening. Don’t miss this Nirvana, you won’t regret it.

  • “Vang Vieng, the best”

    Nirvana Archipel resort in Ban Tha Heua village – awesome place. A corner of paradise where the sweet owner, Christophe will be happy to welcome you to the hundreds of islands of the lagoon. Christophe owns several islands and is taking care of animals (monkeys, leopard cats, rare birds). As well, he might make you discover the lagoon while sailing on the “bar-boat “, or you can hire his jet skis. The experience was simply magical.

  • “Idyllic place to revitalize”

    It is an exceptional place, where you can embrace nature. The resort is made up of individual bungalows, with AC or fan. One can enjoy a magnificent view of the lake from the balconies. The owner and director of the resort, a nice French man who is into ecology, and respect of nature, settled there 5 years ago. He is available to provide you all the information you need, and will offer you a boat ride at the end of the afternoon to feed the wild monkeys on a nearby island. Water sports can be practiced: water- skiing, kayaking, fishing, swimming. One will never regret staying in this heavenly place.

  • “Outstanding and very welcoming Resort”

    After a long motorbike trip, I arrived by chance and was not expecting such a pleasant surprise. The beauty of the setting, and the quality of infrastructures made us feel comfortable. Finally the gentleness and professionalism of Christophe, the boss, convinced us. A really pleasant time with nice people in a splendid location.

Since I discovered South East Asia and settled in Laos, I have been working to transform my vision of paradise into reality.

As I am an enthusiastic lover of the environment and animals, I wanted to create an ecological place offering modern comfort so my guests could enjoy their stay fully. Within our resort and archipelago, you are able to discover Vang Vieng region and the richness of Nam Ngum Lake in the best conditions.

I have created a unique setting enabling discovery, adventure, and well-being.

I am inviting you, for the time you wish, to live my dream…

See you very soon at Nirvana Archipel Resort!
