Harmony with nature”
Buidings and gardens are cleverly ornamented with indigenous flora. Staff are friendly and service minded. So impressed.
We loved our stay at the eco resort. The perfect long weekend getaway! Nam Kat is far enough from Muang Xai to feel secluded and out with the nature hut it’s really only a 30 min drive from airport/bus station. We loved the pool and that ever room is situated along the Nam Kat River. The adventure park is also really fun (we did zip lining and ATVing with some really great guides). I highly recommend for families or couples looking to unwind with nice scenery.
Thanks Rebecca for your great comment.Your are perfectly right for its description. It's far enough to feel isolated and in the meantime, it's only half an hour from the first airport :) Thanks for the comment on the guide, i will transmit to them directly... Feel free to come back anytime, we are waiting for you Thanks again Ben
Beautiful place to relax and get away from it all. Yoshie made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived and was extremely accommodating with an early check-in for our little one to nap in the room and extra bottled water when we ran out. We will definitely be back!
Dear Michell, Thanks a lot for your lovely review. Really happy to hear that Yoshie was greatly helpful :) Hope it's not to hot in your hometown :) We can't wait to have your wonderful family with us again Thanks Ben
Amazing place to discover!”
We stayed at Namkat Yorla Pa for a total of 5 nights in February (2 different stays) and had such a wonderful time there! Room is comfy with all necessary amenities and the resort benefits from all the facilities you could expect for a long stay (pool, gym, spa, restaurant with lots of varieties, etc.). But the key points were definitely the location of the resort and the rooms, literally in the heart of a tropical forest, and the activity center where you can experience a whole set of activities for every member of the family like trekking, ATV, cycling... The property sits on 6,000 hectares of land! The team was great, very welcoming and friendly, they always tried to satisfy our needs and beyond. Our special thanks to Benjamin, the general manager, for his attention to every detail during our stay and his marvelous hospitality skills, a true host! It was definitely an unforgettable time, highly recommended!
Dear Florian, Thanks a lot for your amazing comment. It was a great pleasure to have all your family with us. We really try our best to make Namkat a unique Experience and especially for the family. With more than 50 activities on site, we are proud to say that our resort is the perfect mix of relaxation and adventure. Thanks for your personal note on me, it's really appreciated and it shows that I can rely on my team to spend more time with the guest :) Once again, thank you for your stay and your great comment Good luck with your new adventure in Vietnam :) Ben
Nice hotel creation there”
Toilet and bed sheet smelled really bad but I understand maybe I was too sudden for walk-in so the room wasn’t ready, anyway I will come back again during October and will give myself and yourself chance again about booking in advance, let’s see my next review :)
Dear Pathoumlat, Thanks for your review and sorry for what happen during your stay. Its always a challenge to maintain a standard quality for our rooms and specially when its the beginning of hot season when the air condition just restart to be used. We will do perfectly next time :) Thanks again Ben
I booked the superior room. The room was spacious and clean (though, a few problems with ants in the bathroom). It had a small porch overlooking the stream. Very quiet and peaceful. The staff was wonderful. The grounds here are beautifully designed and maintained. The breakfast selection was very good. I definitely recommend this resort.
Dear Paul, Thanks a lot for your great review. Our room views are indeed amazing and so restful :) So sorry about the ants issues, we try to fix it without using too much chemical product but ants come from everywhere in the jungle :) We hope to see again with us Thanks again Ben
The complex is in very good condition for a jungle style facility if you are active and would like to see the remote north of Laos this is as good as it gets, do not expect a 5 star city hotel in this location or at these prices, they do not exist, but this is the best realistic option, hard to fault, friendly staff excellent English speaking French manager 'Ben' Must have cost a fortune to set up and build. Great views, free bike hire, well organised Airport pick up by hotel staff running 3 x Toyota mini buses if required
Thanks Paul, I really appreciate what you said about the Value of the resort. We are not a 5 stars hotel in term of amenities but we try our best to give the best experience possible for a great price (my opinion too) Thanks for the lovely note on the staff, i will transmit them :) Once again, thanks a lot for staying with us Merci Ben
We stayed at Namkat Yolapa Resort in January with a family of 5 with teenage kids. The environment is absolutely lovely. We really enjoyed the scenery and the activities that are available. We particularly liked the tree top adventure and the ATV's. My only issue with that was for 5 it gets expensive and because you are a little far from the town you have to eat at the resort all the time. (Perhaps a family rate would help). The manager was very accommodating and helpful. Much appreciated, Thanks
Dear Katrina, Thanks to all your family for staying with us. Thanks also for your lovely comment. As you mentioned we have a lot of activities (55) and the idea of a family package is great. I will work on that :) We all hope to see you again Thanks again Benjamin
A Relaxing Jungle getaway”
We stayed here in January 2019 booking two rooms. The actual grounds and facilities are fantastic and the rooms are positioned beautifully by the river. The activities available were great and we really enjoyed them but with a family of 5 it can start to get expensive. One issue I had was that the location is about 18 km's from the main town nearby. However if you are going for a couple of days it is a nice break from the world. The manager was also very helpful. Many Thanks!
Dear Katrina, Thanks for your comment and for staying with us with your family. You mentioned that activities for the whole family may be a bit expensive and I understand. We gonna work on a family package and it will be ready for your next stay. You are right also about the 18 km distance and that's the reason we provided transportation from and to Oudomxai for 15 USD per trip (price per group). We hope to see you again our wonderfull resort Thanks again Benjamin
Beautiful setting, well done design”
Having compared high end resorts in Thailand, China, and now Laos, I can say that this one is very well done, and a good value for money. The same quality of design in China costs far more. The resort is laid out along the Namkat River. Every guestroom has a big floor-to-ceiling window looking out directly on the flowing river. The resort is a bit spread out, but the footpaths linking the different areas are pleasant to walk on, and there is a free golf cart service, too. Kind staff, excellent breakfast buffet. Lunch and dinner at the restaurant are good, too. Expensive compared to standard restaurant costs in Laos, but that's to be expected at any resort. The grounds are beautiful, especially the main lodge and the swimming pool area. We did the 9-zipline course in the neighboring park, which was a good deal at $35/person. It's about an hour of ziplining and the course is very well designed, very high up in the trees, and covers more than 1 km in distance in all.
Dear Matthew, Thanks for the excellent review of Namkat Yorlapa. It was a pleasure to have you with us for 2 nights. We hope to see you again soon Thanks again Benjamin
The best resort”
We were there for new year . It was very nice . The staffs were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean , the breakfast was great and lots of activities and things to do . Highly recommend this resort for the future guests.
Dear Daovy, Thank you so much for this comment, it's really appreciated by all the team. We hope to see you again soon Benjamin
There's well but not good”
This is my first time at this resort we stayed there for 3 nights, the resort is far from Oudomsay city centre so we have to made a breakfast lunch and dinner in resort restaurant foods is so poor. Staff are unacknowledged about the system of services, room are as good as possible. Around hotels has lot of wide bugs there always bitten me. Conclusion resort is look terrible for me, i will not design to go to this hotel soonly or until they improve their own.
Dear Anam, I'm really sorry that your stay didn't feet your expectation. Our resort is indeed far away from everything and that is the reason our guest love it so much. It's a perfect getaway for people who are tired and stressed by cities. Obviously, as we are in the jungle, we do have some bugs (and some are not even yet referenced) and it might be an issue for some guest. Sorry if you were bitten a lot during your stay. I do apologize for the staff issues you had encountered, we are doing permanent training but it took time, Namkat staff is composed by a majority of Khamu people who were born on Namkat land, Lao is them second language and they are not yet aware of international standard, we are working on that. I hope you will come back soon and see the difference. As i told you by PM, i really think that the score of your review is way to low. I normally accept all bad comment and try to use them to improve our services but in my opinion this one is a bit excessive :) Ben
Could be better! ”
I stayed at a ecorrom. The Resort has a nice surrounding. The park is done well. ND the outdoor facilities are beautiful. You get very clean and modern room with a beautiful view to a stream. The breakfast have been really good, too. But for such a resort I expect English speaking staff. They just understand/speak a few words and for more information in detail they can't help you or even understand you. Also I liked to book a bus to Phongsali and to get a ticket for some activities at the Nam Kat Yola Pa as well, it wasn't possible. But every little Guesthouse or hostel could do it. That's really sad.
Dear Jana, Thanks for your review of our resort. I'm deeply sorry that you encountered some issues with the English language. I was not here (for family reason) and I take the blame. I guess they misunderstood what you need about activities because actually, you don't need to book anything, we have small car to bring you to the activity center and from there you can do any activity without prior notice. For the bus to Phong Saly, we arrange that all the time and I don't really understand what happens on your case. We normally send our guest one hour before the bus so they have time for buying the ticket (we can't book the bus ticket before the day of the bus departure). Once again, I want to personally apologize for those issues which affected your impression of our resort I hope that you can come back and I will take care of you personally Best Regards Ben
bad service and bad attitude from Thai staff at the restaurant”
staff at the Restaurant have to train more about how to service i been here for 3 time, this time the staff service at restaurant is lower than last time (my last visit is last year) also the Thai staff at the restaurant didn't pay any attention to customer that's raining day my aunty have problems with her leg can't walk to the restaurant and i call to the restaurant ask to take some food for her (i will go to take by my self) but he say no... he can't give any food for me to bring to the room she have to go to the restaurant only (but i told him she can't go!!! how can I do???) after that I go to the restaurant ask to buy some croissant finally i'm good luck because have a women who work there come to talk with me after she know about my problem and she give me some croissant.

If you love resort in forest with lushes green trees and riverine and full of activities, stay here!”
We are group of 4 female from Malaysia (Muslim). We travel using public transport to Oudomxay and the Resort pick us up at Southern Bus Terminal. 45mins ride through town and village road, you reach Namkat Yorla Pa in the middle of the jungle. Our first impression, woods, bamboos, nature view and scenery, very relaxing and beautiful. Once we checked-in, the rooms was outstanding. You get free view of the river flowing smooth right in front of you. They did their landscaping job perfectly. Blending nature and eco-tourism into their hospitality. You get to choose more than 10 packages of different activities (outdoor and adventure, leisure and strolling and getting more attach to mother nature). What we really appreciate is, General Manager itself (Mr.Nick) attentively cater our needs - simple Halal breakfast consist of home-made pastries and bread, local-made jams and with Halal Chicken Sausages (enough for us). Thank you so much Namkat. Simply beautiful and a treasure for Oudomxay.
Dear Juariah, I am delighted to read such a wonderful review on your recent experience at Namkat Yorla Pa, The Paradise and Heaven for The Adventurers and thank you for your wonderful words of praise for the hotel as well as Mr.Nick and the team.

We hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you back to our resort again soon. Warm regards, Putthithorn ONGSIRIKUL General Manager
A very good hotel for relaxes and rejuvenate. Executive deluxe room is just beside a flowing river with cricket sound at night and birds in the morning. Bathroom is big with Jacuzzi inside. A lot of activities in the resort to occupied your time. You need 2 nights at least. We only stayed a night and looks like not enough. The resort is far from the town but there is a shutter van to take you to and from the small little airport. Will be back again.
Dear Mr.Christopher Thank you for your generous compliments and for choosing to stay at Namkat Yorla Pa Resort, Oudomxay Province, Lao. It brings me pleasure to know that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay here and could take advantage of all facilities. Thank you once again and we look forward to welcoming you again soon to the beautiful resort in Oudomxay. Warm regard Putthithorn ONGSIRIKUL General Manager
A bit pricey, but absolutely beautiful and very well equipped. It's a long way out of town, so it's a not a location that is very good for seeing other places in town, but if you want a relaxing vacation, where everything you need is right there, this is the place.
Dear Mr.Nathan Thank you for your recent stayed with us at Namkat Yorla Pa Resort, The paradise and heaven for the adventurers.

Namkat Yolapa Resort”
A beautiful location, rooms were spacious, clean and all have the river running just outside the verandahs. Staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. Food was well presented and very tasteful Plenty of adult activities, not so many for young children. For an idyllic getaway it is ideal

After a couple of weeks on the road in the mountains, Nam Kat Yorlapa seemed like a good place to recharge our batteries for a few days. What an excellent choice we made! This oasis of calm was just what we needed. The sound of running water accompanies you throughout the day and lulls you to sleep at night. You wake to mist over the hills, then as the rising sun clears the mist away, the colours of the forest around you are revealed in all the glory - more shades of green than you could ever imagine, as well as pinks and oranges and reds and yellows, absolutely gorgeous. We spent most of our days lounging by the pool, reading, dozing and gazing out at the scenery. And the hotel facilities were all we could wish for - comfortable bed, hot shower, great wifi, lovely staff, a massage that was extremely professional and very good value, a substantial buffet breakfast and a well run restaurant. Just superb! (And terrific value!!)
Dear Simon, It was a pleasure to have you and your wife with us. I will transmit your comment to the Spa team and the other departments. The pool already miss you :) We can't wait to have you here again Thanks again Ben
Extremly unfriendly except the manager”
The checkin has been extremely unfriendly. No “hello”, no “welcome”, no smile and of course no welcome drink. Only two words: “check in?”, “passport please”. The Bungalows are smelling musty. My wife couldn’t breath in it. Thanks of the very friendly manager Ben we got an upgrade in a villa, which was O.K. Problem is, that there is no heating system in the bungalows. And even its 30 degree during the day it cool down to 14 in the night. The stuff is extremely unfriendly. In the Restaurant they are using their smartphone and do not take care about the guests as soon as the manager is not there. Checking out the same like check in. They gave me an invoice in US$ with a 10% lower exchange rate. Take care and ask for an invoice in LAK..... But the area is very nice. Quite in the middle of the nature. The resort is very nice with nice garden and open fireplaces in the evening. The cocktails are great. If the stuff will be trained and if they install a heating system: potential to 10 points
Dear Mister Horst, I'm deeply sorry that you had a bad experience in our resort. On the behave of all the team I want to apologize for that. Namkat Yorlapa is known for its unique experience and you didn't have a chance to discover it. We are a not a brand new hotel but we are still implementing procedures for all department and especially Front office and restaurant. I wish you and your wife can come back soon and see our resort as it should be seen, a Jungle Paradise. Once again I apologize for the bad experience and we will use your comment to improve our services Benjamin
