Pon Arena Hotel

Ban Kang Khong, Don Khong Island, Laos

The rooms with a Mekong view are the way to go at this inviting riverside property—they're enormous and have terraces overlooking Si Phan Don. All the rooms, though, are modern and well-equipped with flat-screen TVs, safes, minibars, and other amenities. The beautiful swimming pool, a marvelous place to lounge, edges the river. The hotel arranges afternoon boat cruises to see the Irrawaddy dolphins and Khone Phapheng waterfall, helpful for visitors without the time to head down to Don Khon. The hotel's only drawback is that its Mekong-view rooms cost twice as much as the standard ones, which don't have views or terraces.
