This is a HIDDEN GEM!! It starts when you arrive and are met with a nice greeting drink and food and a greeting from the owners Michel and Francoise. The facility is very well manicured and tasteful. A wonderful fusion of Old world and new world Vietnam. The art work is very tasteful and creative. The rooms are wonderful, there’s only 12 and they all seem done very well. Comfortable and have a humble elegance about them. The food is a highlight. As the menu says, perfect fusion of French and Vietnamese. The breakfast is a great way to start the day - pastries followed up with fresh juice and coffee and the a wonderful selection of meals. All of the selections we had were wonderful (some of the best Phỏ I have had). We loved all meals. As far as activities, we borrowed the bikes and went out on the 6km ride. They have bikes with babyseats, kids bikes and others. If biking is critical to your experience call in advance to confirm the configuration will work for you but well worth it to kill a few hours. To summarize, this resort is a wonderful getaway from Ho Chi Minh City (2 hours) easy drive and a very relaxing, tasteful escape.

I accidentally found out about this resort when trying to look for a place (different than the beach) to entertain my son in the summer. Our original plan was to stay here probably one or two nights, in order to have some time to explore Mekong Delta, but in the end, after reviewing and checking with friends, we decided to spend a 3 night holiday here, and The Island lodge did not make us disappointed. The resort is small but beautiful and well taken care. A warm feeling even though I arrived in a rainy afternoon. It locates at the end of a small road so very quiet. Beautiful scenes inside, the room is spacious (premium room, by the garden), the bed is big and a free kid bed separately for my son (very well thoughts). The pool is nice and by the river. Service here is exceptionally good. Special thanks to Mr Minh at the restaurant who really helped my family during the days we were here. All the staff are nice. My son and I love the young small girl who was our tour guide in all our tours. My son loved the cycling tour most as he could go around the village, even in the rain (a very good experience) to explore Mekong Delta. All the tours were customized and exciting. The only two things that I did not like much were the bath tub (i intended to book a room with bathtub but the water pressure was very weak so can't really use the tub much. We waited for few hours and still could not have it even half-full) and lots of mosquitoes in the restaurant during dinner. In general we did have very good experience and stay in The Island Lodge. My son super loved it and keeps asking me to let him come back. So thank you for all your efforts to do all the best for us as guests. Look forward to coming back soon! Cheers, Mai

Dear Mai, Thanks you so much for this very kind coment about your stay among us on the Unicorn Island. Our staff will be very happy about your comments, Tram your guide and Minh your waiter, and of course the others, our small team. Its true, the bathtube is supplied with water only by gravity (solar system) but i think the reception forgot to stay you to use the line of shower, independant line, so the bathtube would have been full more quickly ! sorry for this problem we forgot to tell you ... We hope we will have the pleasure to welcome you with your son in a near future. Warm regards, Françoise, Michel and the lodge's family.

We stayed 3 nights at the Island Lodge during our journey in Vietnam and we loved it. It is a very quiet place and all the staff are so nice and helpful. The pool, the garden and the restaurant are nice places to hang out and just relax - maybe have a juice or a cocktail/mocktail. For breakfast you just choose whatever you like from the breakfast menu with fruits, cereals, croque monsieurs, omelettes, juices, homemade breads etc and everything is very delicious. And the coffee is great! So if you have to get away from the huzzle in Saigon or just need to relax completely we could highly recommend the Island Lodge.

The most environmentally friendly hotel so far, no plastic water bottles! Hurray! Soap and shampoo in refill bottles. This was the end of our two weeks in wonderful Vietnam. Facilities brilliant, staff just lovely. Great view of the working river. Jonathan.

Dear Jonathan, Thanks for this very kind review, and happy you enjoyed your stay among us. We are just trying to our small level of reduced consumption of plastic, real drama in Asia, adopting a behavior eco responsible as soon as we can. Hope we will see you again in the future. Warm regards, Françoise, Michel and the lodge's family.

We have just spent a 3 day week end at the lodge. From start to finish the experience was perfect. The place is along the mekong: elegant and peaceful with a feeling to be at home or at some friend place. The food and the breakfast are excellent. The service is impeccable. The surroundings are charming. Our highlight was a 17km ride from the lodge to discover tge mekong delta. Absolutely beautiful and authentic. Nature with a big A! I highly recommend this magical place. Evelyne
