There are lots of cheap homestays / hostels / hotels in the Mekong but if you are willing to spend a little more, then the Island Lodge is truly fantastic. Its only 2 hrs from Saigon but feels a world away - hidden amongst the trees. As soon as you arrive, you feel yourself relaxing. The rooms are beautiful, the food is excellent, the swimming pool looks out to the Mekong and you can easily spend a day sitting there with a book, eating complimentary breads/cakes that are freshly baked in the kitchen. The owners are wonderful and their team are all welcoming. Go stay there!

The hotel is set on the Mekong Delta in a beautiful location. We were only booked for a one night stay and we wish we could have stayed longer - excellent hotel, excellent staff, excellent service, excellent food in a fantastic location!
A perfect hotel to relax and unwind with excellent food and some great cocktails and wine
We hope to return very soon.
Wonderful setting within the Mekong delta. Sadly only a one night stay - we could have most certainly stayed longer but travel plans limited us on this occasion. Warm welcome from Michel, the owner. Great pool and bar areas and spacious accommodation.

This past weekend was our third getaway to the Island Lodge where Michel greeted us with the usual warm hospitality, a welcome drink, and some delectable appetizers - already we are in heaven even before we unpack our bags and head to the pool. We love everything about the lodge but we especially enjoy the food which never disappoints. The staff are exceptionally accommodating and cannot do enough to please. We HIGHLY recommend The Island Lodge!
Room tip: Your personal preference - we enjoy the river view but those garden bungalows also look inviting
We stayed for two nights earlier this month and were pleasantly surprised upon arrival! The lodge is situated on the river delta, away from traffic and noise, its stunning and somewhere to completely relax and de stress.
The hosts and staff were very professional and friendly, Chau the manager was only too happy to give advice on the surroundings.
If you are looking to stay somewhere close to bars and restaurants then this isnt the place for you, however the lodge does serve great food and cocktails with great views across the pool and garden.
