Travelers' Choice
Nestled along the bank of Tien River, Mekong Lodge is a charming eco-resort where design, comfort and nature are blended seamlessly together. Our lodge features 26 private bungalows (12 with pools), meticulously built to embody the local style of rural “garden cottage” surrounded by flowers and fruit trees. Right at the heart of Mekong Delta, Mekong Lodge offers a chance to explore one of the most beautiful areas in the region, which is still left untouched by modernization and development. Here, you can live not as a tourist but as a local with daily life going on around: vibrant river, fantastic floating market and quaint villages. Here, pristine tropical sun and nature are waiting for you all year round. Welcome to Mekong Lodge and see the real Vietnam that others miss!

Just what you need after staying for 4 years in a big city. They tried to make it simple and as eco friendly as possible. Tranquil, relaxing, simpler than a simplicity. No other sounds but birds, insects and roosters. Well, boats sometimes. No traffic, no crowds. Rooms were spacious enough. Clean and with additional mosquito nets. Bathroom was my absolute obsession. Breakfasts were yummy and simple. My pick was pancakes. Lunch and dinner menus were pretty diverse with a lot of vegan/vegetarian options. Pool was huge and water there of a room temperature. An Absolute steal. And poolside was so picturesque. Service was great and we got any kind of staff support we needed. No else to say, but stress free and 100 percent self-indulging experience. Both of my friends are of the same opinion.

There was a good communication before and the hotel arranged a pick-up from Saigon. The whole trip went smooth and upon arrival we where guided to our spacious river room which is highly recommend. We enjoyed their back canal boating tour which provide a good insight in the rural life style along the river. The on-site pool is a wonderful cool-off opportunity after a day of exploring. Breakfast and dinner where tasty and enjoyable. A great stop to explore the mighty mekong delta.

I decided to drive down from Saigon by bike. Its not too arduous a journey, although a little tip if you decide to do this, you can only access the hotel by bike and don't follow the Google directions! The lodge itself is really beautiful. You're right on the banks of the Mekong and there are some wonderful views, especially at sunset. I was also able to join a 3 hour tour of the area for only $20. The pool is very nice and the restaurant overlooks the river and gives you very generous portions. My room was also very comfortable and I enjoyed having a little porch to sit out on in the evenings. Other rooms also had little splash pools which some kids were enjoying. The reason this isn't a 5* review though is because everything closed so early. The restaurant is advertised as being open until 9, yet when I finished my meal at 8:30, I was in near total darkness and everyone had packed up. Worse was the pool bar. Advertised as being open until 10, I wasn't able to enjoy anytime there in the evenings as there were no staff available to serve me. More frustratingly, at only 9pm, the reception desk was also closed and deserted. I resorted to by multiple drinks with dinner and relaxing on my porch with them instead. That gripe aside, I had a very relaxing trip

Lovely place with beautiful gardens and pool overlooking the river. The restaurant on the waterside was fab - so relaxing watching river life float by as you eat. Food was great too. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable and the bathrooms were gorgeous. Fab to have bikes to use for free and helmets and kids bikes were also available. The only thing we weren't impressed with was the water in the pool - it was really green and my daughter came out of the water with a rash under her arms. We were told they had to wait a few days before putting the cleaning chemicals in the water but this wasn't really a satisfactory explanation. If you can get this place when the pool has been cleaned, it is a lovely place to relax.

We had to wait 2h30 before being checked in without offering us water just left there to hang at the reception. Bathroom "outside" the room but actually closed by glass window atelier style which make the bathroom being like a heat incubator horrible to stay inside. It could be nicer if the place was adult only. Having kids running in the restaurant or shouting and jumping by the pool kills the all buzz of the place no longer appropriate for relaxation. Tourist factory place : you go in, you go out and in between you follow the activity schedule. Overall cleanliness very average. Probably other better places around. I would not recommend this place to relative.
