Welcome to Mai Chau Ecolodge ! Only 3 hours driving distance from Hanoi, you will welcomed by smiling local staff in a haven of peace in the heart of Mai Chau Valley. Here, the Asian art of hospitality takes its full meaning : a real immersion in the authenticity of Vietnam.
The Ecolodge is different from a regular 4 star resort thanks to its commitment to be responsible for the environment. Visitors live here the experience of the typical rural real life in Vietnam, far away from the bustle of cities. This luxurious ecofriendly property invites you to travel in the spirit of Vietnamese traditions.
You will find yourself in harmony with nature into your room, while enjoying today’s comfort amenities. The Ecolodge has striven to honor local crafts using natural materials from the valley : thatched roofs, bamboo interiors, wooden furniture, outside “jungle” showers and stone walls. For instance, the sinks were dug in rock cubes taken from the mountain when the road linking the village to Hanoi was built. You will have your bath in wooden tubs with large openings on the outside. These are so many details that make the charm of the 43 suites and rooms spread over the 19 bungalows of the lodge. All room categories have either a private garden or terrace. Most of them offer views of the rice fields and emerald mountains.
Immersion in local culture extends into the plate. You will discover a cuisine “of the land” between traditional Vietnamese and Thai Tribal recipes, usually made from garden herbs and vegetables.
Enjoy typical dishes while admiring the rice fields bordered by the mountain from both restaurants.
Activities abound in Mai Chau Ecolodge : a true return to origins. Here, no TV, but only positive activities : you may integrate yourself in local life by participating in the work of the farmers in the fields of rice : an unforgettable experience! You can reach by foot nearby tribal villages (Pom Coong village & Van village), cycle through the countryside, take cooking classes, attend traditional dance performances, sailing on the lake, laze by the pool or pamper yourself at the spa where ancestral treatments are provided following true Asian tradition. Guides will put all their heart to make you visit the area (by hiking, bicycle, car or boat).
Mai Chau Ecolodge is part of an environmental program. There is a strong connection with the local ethnic community at the heart of a landscape of unspoiled beauty. Here, you will only hear the singing of birds and the rustle of leaves. You will feel far away, so far away from your daily life, here in this haven of serenity. The poetry of the valley is highlighted on a journey that will change your life forever.
