If you are not sure where to stay in Pakse Laos. I got you! During my recent Laos travel, I stayed in different places and these are my recommended hotels in Pakse.
Pakse is not a large town, but the traffic passing through this city is big in numbers. It could be because of its gateway into Thailand and also an entry point to 4000 islands. (more on that later) Accommodation there ranges from hostels, mid-tier hotels to 4-star luxury hotels.
So just a few days ago, I was in southern Lao with Lao Ministry of tourism and fellow bloggers. It was a five-day press trip and I was excited to be part of it. If you been following my solo travel journey, you know 2 years ago at one point, I was living in Vientiane as a digital nomad and Vientiane was my base. Having done tons of fast traveling, I have grown to love and appreciate slow travel which basically means I like to travel and stay in one country for a 1-X number of months. I believe this is a great way to get to know the country better. Hence, I was excited to be back in the same country I called home for 3 months. I even wrote about the Pros and Cons of living in Vientiane, Laos here. Go check it out if you like.
Back to the hotels in Pakse, Laos. Let me introduce you to our first,
1. Champasak Grand Hotel, Pakse
Actually, we stayed in this grand hotel for 3 nights.
Address: Lao Nippon Bridge, Mekong Riverside Road
Tel. +856 031 255111
Champasak Grand is a four-star hotel in Pakse, Lao. Happy to report it is as grand as it looks from outside and inside. I liked the fact that it has 4 restaurants, bars, a gym, 1 big swimming pool to fit 100 people, modern facilities and services, Free Wi-Fi, Business Centre, and 24-hour front desk.
This beautiful hotel is just 15 minutes from Pakse International Airport( 15 mins grab taxi ride for tech-savvy), shops and local attractions are all within easy reach while a large supermarket is also nearby, and only 1.5 km from KM2 Bus Station (Sangchalern).
The best thing I liked about the hotel was the view from my room! Just look at the pictures above! You could see the superb Mekong river right outside your window, the iconic Lao Nippon bridge and view as far as your eye could see. 100% best place I have stayed so far in my Laos travel.
Now, because of the short press trip time, we only stayed in 1 hotel in Pakse.
But I understand you maybe want to have more than 1 option. So, I did some research and below are the hotels that are also highly recommended by ex-pats, digital nomads and alike.
2. Arawan Riverside Hotel
In your Pake, Laos travel, if you are after the Mekong river view room then Arawan riverside hotel can offer you just that. Sunsets from the hotel look pretty amazing too. It also has the capacity to hold conferences and boasts a clean swimming pool.
Another Pakse accommodation that we didn’t stay at but looks equally beautiful is
3. The River Resort, Champasak, Laos
The River Resort is the award-winning eco-friendly resort. Picture a perfect location with the choice to explore or relax. The location is superb overlooking the Mekong and surrounded by unspoiled nature. I think I am going to put this under a wish list. How about you? Which hotels in Pakse would you like to stay at? Lmk in the comments below.
Don Det Accommodation
On the 2nd day of our Lao trip, we went to Don Det, 4000 islands in Champasak province in southern Lao. It is a perfect place to go for nature, calmness, and tranquillity. I have put together Don Det accommodation and travel tips in it.
What I used to take these photos
This has been my favorite Camera so far. I love how my pictures come out crisp and colorful. It also has a screen which is useful when vblogging. You can check out what I meant on my Instagram which is here.

This is the good old Go pro that I take with me everywhere. I recommend it because it is small, lightweight and waterproof. I have had made many memories with this trusted item and looking forward to more.
