“When searching for a good hotel for a weekend in-between business meetings in Manila and Hanoi, I found the Island Lodge, conveniently near HCMC where I needed to change flights anyhow on my travel to Hanoi. The hotel arranged for transport and I arrived after a 2hr drive from HCMC airport. The lodge is situated on the “”Unicorn Island”” in the Mekong Delta. Owner/manager Michel and team made sure I received a good welcome and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner. The lodge is in a quiet area with great, comfortable and well equipped rooms. There is a large swimming pool overlooking the river. The restaurant (also used for breakfast) is designed with great care and offers a very good choice of food, both Vietnamese and French. It is a great place to relax for several days or a (long) weekend. I also enjoyed a boat tour to My Tho, a city about 20 mins away from the hotel. The second day of my stay I took a 4 island boat tour which offered a great impression of the Mekong area and islands. In one word: excellent! Will try to visit again soon!
Room Tip: There are also 2 bungalows with 2 bedrooms suitable for families”
