Mai Chau Lodge, Vietnam

There’re local people in traditional dress. Exquisite Thai food is being cooked in front of you. There’s ethnic dancing. Sunday markets at home were never like this!

From Mai Chau Lodge you’ll have eye-opening views of the whole Mai Chau Valley. A place of green richness, where people continue with a pastoral lifestyle that seems unchanged for centuries. They still live in wooden, stilted houses. Their ancient skills, like embroidering clothes and silk spinning, are passed down through the generations. Their dances are ancient and they’re disarmingly welcoming.

A trait they share with the Lodge. Personal service is the watchword here – along with a level of Westernised comfort you’ll feel completely at home with. Think en suite bathrooms and a restaurant that serves the best of regional specialities; served in front of spectacular views of the lotus lake, pool and green paddy fields stretching off into the distance.
