Description

Occupying a lush green hill outside the Na Phon Village in the Mai Chau Valley, Mai Chau Ecolodge lies just three hours southwest of Hanoi. This simple but eco-conscious lodge is a short walk from the villages of Lac and Pom Coong, the soul of Mai Chau. The lodge's location allows you to make the most of the beautiful countryside while staying close Mai Chau and its bustling morning market.

Purposely placed away from the main roads, Mai Chau Ecolodge was built using entirely natural materials. Its thatched roofs, bamboo interiors and wooden furniture embrace the region's tribal heritage. The lodge encapsulates the idea of getting back to nature.

The service at the lodge is relaxed and friendly, and the dining options bring together a fusion of Vietnamese and Thai tribal food common in this region, incorporating fresh ingredients and local produce. If you have a particular passion for food, opt for a cooking lesson for an authentic cultural experience.

There are plenty of other activities to suit everyone, from hiking and cycling experiences, spending time with local tribes, or simply revitalizing yourself with a massage. The lodge's lagoon shaped swimming pool opposite the restaurant also offers a wonderful place to cool off after a day's exploring.
