We stayed here in April 2015 for two nights. Two nights is better than none, but I would have liked to have stayed there for a week. So much to do and see, and yet it would have been so nice just to relax and enjoy the place for a few days! The rooms are charming, rustic but luxurious, with... More

We're living in HCMC and it is always a pleasure for us to spend a week end in Mekong Lodge. Green environment, friendly people and very nice activities for adults & Kids (bicycle, swimming pool, boat trip, visit, tasting, cooking...) They organized a special breakfast along the river! Lovely! A special thanks to Martin who take care of us during... More

We had a wonderful stay at mekong lodge. The gardens are beautiful and the swimming pool area overlooking the river is a stunning setting (way better than the pictures). We loved our room and indoor/outdoor bathroom as well. This was probably the most cultural part of our trip to Vietnam. Our tour guide Hau was very knowledgeable about the area... More

What a great experience! Relaxing and charming setting, food and service lovely too. Our guide, Koah, was so knowledgeable and we felt the tours gave us a real sense of everyday life on the Mekong. Our two young girls found it fascinating too and we all loved the cycling, even though it was a little challenging at times. We would... More

5 of 5 starsReviewed May 15, 2015 NEW We visited this lodge in April after a fellow hotel guest in Ho Chi Minh recommended it. They picked us up from our hotel and drove us to a dock where we took a beautiful wooden boat to the Eco Lodge. We were served lunch - the first of our five course... More

Wow, what a experience. This resort or lodge was not what I expected and their website does not do it justice at all. Picked up from our hotel, taken to Cai be harbour, shuttled to the lodge, greeted with drinks and our itinerary for the day. Shocked what was actually included in the price as it was incredible. Highly recommend

Thank you to everyone at the Mekong for making our trip so incredible, it was one of the highlights of our time in Vietnam. Located right on the river and with a great new pool overlooking it can you can spend many hours being lazy and watching the locals go by. The open air reception is a bit uninspiring but... More

If you want to return to a little luxury while still experiencing the authentic Mekong, this is the place. Private car from our hotel in HCM, 2 hours scenic drive to the port at Cai Be where we were met by our guide and escorted to a river taxi to the Mekong Lodge. Open air restaurant, lovely pool and hut... More

As a "side trip" from Hanoi I was delighted, absolutely so! Our guide was Hoa, a delightful older gentleman who spoke great english. He took us bicycling, looked after us at dinner to explain what food we were eating and generally made our trip fabulous. We couldn't do one of the trips so he took us out the next day... More

We spent just one and a half days there, but it was really worth while. Very relaxing, really nice lodges (we loved the "outside" bathrooms with the wooden tubs) and good food. They offer a "cooking course" which does not last very long but is fun to do. The cook has a lot of humour and the food is great.... More
