Travel Experience

Kamu Lodge is a private eco-lodge engaged with low-impact travel, seeking for a balance between tourism and the maintenance of the region’s cultural and ethnic heritage. On the banks of the Mekong River, in a remote valley of rice fields, small villages and forested mountains, it is still a good example of integration within the natural environment while working closely with a local village, where guests have the opportunity to see first hand the rural life in Laos.

Responsibility

Kamu lodge is located adjacent to the Kamu village. Considerable attention has been made by the creators of Kamu Lodge to ensure the seamless integration into the local environment by tapping into local knowledge and materials. Working closely with the village head, Kamu Lodge engages villagers to work at the lodge, sharing and teaching the management how to deliver the Kamu experience in a most authentic and sustainable manner.

Business Case

Ever conscious about encroaching and changing the local habits, founders of Kamu Lodge collaborated with the various authorities to ensure its slow travel concept is fully supported by experts in the developmental fields. For instance, Kamu Lodge collaborates with the local health authorities to provide medical care to the villagers. Kamu Lodge also supports the local community via micro credit financing supported by Laos Village Development Fund, helping the villagers to realize their dreams.
