Situated on one of beautiful island in Mekong River, Cai Be Town, Tien Giang Province, Mekong Ecolodge stand beside Cai Be floating Market and inside fruit gardens which emphasize the beautiful but seldom visit rural area on the side of Mekong River. With 80 per cent Vietnamese live in the countryside, visitor to Vietnam are rarely given opportunity to peek beneath the veil of this age-old-culture. It is our goal to set a benchmark in ecotourism here that can be replicated throughout the region. In order to do this, we need to continue to show our guests how most Vietnamese actually live, far removed from tourist hot pots which dot the country. Beautiful natural surroundings notwithstanding, it's not surroundings nor the brick and mortar of villages which make up communities. It's the people. In Mekong Ecolodge, it is important to us that you feel welcomed and included. We do this by offering the true Mekong Vietnamese hospitality. This is necessary if we wish to learn as much from you as we hope you learn from us.

My wife and I had a 3 - day stay here some days ago. I must say, it is a truly wonderful vacation. Everything is perfect, the landscape, the environment, the staff and the resort owner (Ms. Hue). By our last day we had been taken to the ferry by Ms. Hue and her man, it is bit surprising memory, haha. I would recommend you all to come and try this (the resort), to taste the local dishes, the hospitality and more… Surely will come back. Thanks for everything set for us. Long and wife (15 – 17 April, 2021).

This was the perfect place to stay after am exhausting but wonderful trip around Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. Our son came up from HCMC to join as and said he would recommend it to all his friends living there as a great break away from the city. Pool, massages drinks always available and choice to eat under cover or on the veranda. The trips out were well priced and just long enough

We staff very friendly, welcoming and always happy to help. The food was delicious and well priced for the portion sizes. The rooms were clean, with aircon and mosquito net for comfort. The bathrooms were also clean and a nice touch to shower outdoors (still private). The only downside is the tours offered are quite expensive so I’d recommend finding tours in the main centre. Which was a quarter of the price. Overall though we had a great time and felt relaxed during our stay. Thank you!

We had two nights at the Mekong Ecolodge homestay. The lodge is situated on a small island near Cai Be. The rooms are lovely with a bath and toilet outside. Beware that you are close to nature in all aspects, so you should consider to take the fruits in the room outside. The food is good and we also had a small cooking lesson. One day we were on a biking tour in the area and it was very interesting and we had lunch at a local family.

We stayed at Mekong Ecolodge overnight during a 2-day Mekong Delta trip we booked in HCM. Good bits Amazing staff, they could not do more for us and Tuay, who spoke the best English was superb and really helpful. Food was really good, I read on a comment here that food is expensive - it really isn't. The staff were really good and even checked when we couldn't finish all our food - the portions were great and we were just full! The little bungalows are very cute and really nicely decorated on arrival. Outdoor shower was exciting with good heat and water pressure. Other points; Yes, you're in the jungle. So there might be some noise and some bugs around, but it's part of the experience and certainly not the fault of the hotel - you are by no means slumming it. The rooms are also very reasonable on Booking.com so if you are paying a lot, check with your agent and do your research. All in all a great experience, especially when we were considering 'just another day' on the beach. This was memorable and highly enjoyable. Highly recommended.
