Weekend Getaway – The Island Lodge My Tho

Living in Saigon is quite stifling sometime and you often need a weekend getaway to completely relieve stress.

We took our bike and drove 1H45 to our resort The Island Lodge in My Tho. It was really amazing ! First step inside and you already feel in paradise. Staff is surprisingly nice and welcoming and the place is in the middle of nowhere so you are completely in peace.

We paid 3,600,000 VND per night. You may say it’s pricey but it really deserves it.

Upon arrival, we met the owners (from France), they came to welcome and offer us drink and finger food. We spend the afternoon at the pool and we woke up from our nap with a surprise, they served us a really good home-made lemon cake. Then, we went to the sauna and staff was always taking good care of us. We had few drinks on the dock before dinner and it was speechless. The food was good, they offer french and vietnamese cuisines at good price (about 200k the main course). The room is very clear and confortable with a king size, they also have a Nespresso coffee machine at disposal in the room (for free Woh woh) and bath and shower with all the amenities.

In other words, our stay was amazing, unforgettable and I highly recommend it !
