Character Boutique, Eco-friendly, Remote Location
Having opened at the end of 2014, the Island Lodge is the Mekong Delta’s first true boutique property and what a welcome addition to the region it is! Located on the island of Thoi Son, just a short drive from My Tho and only 2 hours from Saigon it is the ideal tranquil spot from which to explore the Delta.
There are just 12 rooms at the lodge, eight Mekong river view rooms and four garden pavilions. All rooms have a private terrace or balcony. Garden Pavilions are recommended for families, although not internally connected
Adding to the experience is the hospitality and service you will receive from the French owner/managers Michal and Francoise, who live on-site and are wealth of knowledge about the region and country as a whole due to Michael’s family connections to northern Vietnam.
The restaurant is just delightful and serves both a French and Vietnamese a la carte menu which from personal experience was truly delicious combining delicate fresh flavours with elegant presentation that you’d expect to find in a fine dining establishment. The walls display old pictures of the area and Michael’s grandparents and father during the time they lived in Northern Vietnam in the 1930’s.
In our opinion The Island Lodge offers a luxury boutique style option for those looking to explore the Mekong Delta. The location is idyllic thus we recommend at least 2 nights so you can combine sightseeing with time at leisure to relax and enjoy the lodge’s setting and facilities.
