Fabulous Experience

There was nothing we didn’t like about this place. The staff were friendly the room was beautiful with amazing vieThe retreat sits on a hill with bungaloes terraced for sensational views of the valley. Wake up to watch the light through the mountains and view the village coming awake to harvest the rice crop. Spend the day trekking through the terraced rice fields. Relax on a private balcony just to chill and admire the view. The food is wonderful and the staff kind and attentive. The room design and details are both rustic and aesthetic. ws. The food was fantastic and the drinks were cheap. There are some wonderful trails for hiking as well which we really enjoyed. Definitely recommended.

An incredibly beautiful hidden gem!

My boyfriend and I spent a lovely weekend at Pu Luong retreat. We stayed in an incredible room overlooking the rice field. It was an awe-inspiring view to wake up to. We trek to the surrounding Thai villages which was stunning! I was very impressed by the local people. They are super welcoming, friendly, helpful, well-trained and always looking to make our experience there a wonderful one. I'm very satisfied with my stay here. Pu Luong Retreat is the ideal place off the beaten track to relax and get your batteries charged while experiencing amazing rooms with magnificent views with the welcoming and friendly staff.
