Staying at Rungyen Resort said to be Phu Rua
In Nov'2014 we did stay at Rungyen Resort in Pua, it is a bit older Thai family resort in the hills between Phu Rua and Dan Sai in Loei province. At a height of about 600 meter, the resort is hidden away in the lush jungle of Loei. About 10 km from the main road (route 203). The hotel of course has private parking, free wife and restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Although I would suggest to take your own food with you, as the quality of the food is not very well. The resort has a main building with rooms and a few bungalows with 1 or 2 rooms. Our bungalow had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a living room with a fire place (for in the winter). And of course a verandah. Although it is all a bit older it was well taken care off and recently renovated. If not in the high season the prices are actually not bad and if you are with a group of people who do not mind that it is all a bit older then it is a great place to stay. Web-site : Rungyen Resort.
Update : Due to new enforcement of old regulations it might be that this resort is closed.
