Mekong Lodge is an independent eco-resort in the town of Cai Be, in the Mekong Delta region of southern Vietnam. Nestled on the banks of the Tien River, the property offers friendly, attentive service along with 30 bungalows, a restaurant and bar with waterside views and a lovely swimming pool, all set in pretty gardens filled with tropical plants and fruit trees. The lodge is a great mid-range option for travellers seeking a comfortable and relaxing base from which to explore the fascinating Mekong Delta.

The extensive grounds house a restaurant and bar overlooking the river, great for watching life on the water, and a lovely spot for sundowners. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available in communal areas. The restaurant offers all-day dining, with buffet breakfasts and a variety of international and Vietnamese dishes, including local specialities. Private dining and candle-lit dinners in the lovely gardens can also be arranged.

A complimentary boat transfer to Mekong Lodge is available to guests arriving from nearby Cai Be. This traditional Delta town is popular for its bustling floating market, whilst the tranquil orchards, paddy fields, rustic villages, and meandering waterways of the surrounding area make it ideal for fishing, hiking, and cycling. Mekong Lodge prides itself on its eco-friendly ethos and commitment to responsible tourism. Locally sourced materials, solar energy and rain water are used throughout the resort. Most of the staff are employed from the local community, and the management is regularly involved in supporting local schools and fair trade initiatives.

The accommodation comprises 30 traditionally designed, spacious bungalows with thatched roofs, tiled floors, and bamboo furniture. Each air conditioned eco-bungalow is solar powered, and offers a double or twin beds, plus a simple seating area, and a private outdoor bathroom featuring bathtub and shower. Outside is a private terrace with seating and either garden or river views. Several bungalows also come with their own plunge pool. Note that the lodge’s atmospheric waterside location means inevitable passing river traffic; guests preferring more privacy may wish to request a room overlooking the garden, rather than the river.

Children are welcome at Mekong Lodge and while there are no child specific activities on site, the super pool and garden will appeal to guests of all ages. Extra beds can be supplied, subject to prior arrangement, and babysitting can be arranged on request. Due to the unfenced pool and riverside location, parents are reminded to supervise their children at all times.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
