“A great Eco friendly resort.. getting back to nature!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Loved the Mekong Lodge.. we had a private pool room right on the river.. massages out the front whilst watching the boats go past.. very enjoyable..
we went as a group of 9 and had a great time! Food was great and they catered for me (vegetarian) and others in the group that had allergies etc..
Bike ride was a must! so funny and just all round good experience.
Thanks mekong!

“Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

We had one night at the beautiful Mekong Lodge and it was a wonderful experience. Our guide couldn't have been better, and our three children aged 14, 12 and 9 loved it too. The trips on the river were great, as was the bike ride on the island. Even the kids enjoyed wrapping wontons at the cooking school. Food was beautiful too, and the gardens are amazing. Highly recommended.

“great overnight trip to Delta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We made a last minute decision when we had been in HCMC for 24 hours that we wanted to see the delta region and the Trip Advisor comments made the Lodge a logical choice. Prompt responses to our emails helped make confirmation of our plans for an overnight stay really easy, and overall the service (from hotel pick up to return, and all in between) was excellent. The accommodation was lovely and peaceful. Our guide Qua was really helpful and we learnt lots from him about life in the Delta (he also tolerated our incessant questions and need for photo stops when cycling with good humour and kindness). A lovely break from city madness and quite romantic to boot. Only negative comment - the dinner was not very interesting but the staff and venue made up for this small issue.

“Great Mekong experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

My wife and I stayed for the one night package having booked from Ho Chi Minh City. We were collected from our hotel arriving late morning then returned to HCMC the following afternoon. Mekong Lodge is unique, the rooms thatched bungalow type, set along or back from the river amongst gardens. The iteniary was led for us by Khoa. He was a wonderfully nice, helpful guide who clearly cares about his community. He took us on bikes, boats, markets and local villages. The only slightly disappointing thing was the floating market at Cai Be. There's not much left of it compared to the past. However all the activities were very interesting. The food was all included at the resort and was of a high standard. Any mosquito problems are addressed with staff putting nets over the bed at night time. It was such a unique experience and made especially memorable by Khoa.
