Mai Chau Ecolodge
Only three hours by car from Hanoi, Mai Chau is a completely different world of pure air, untouched nature and fascinating tribal culture. Mai Chau Ecolodge is located right at the heart of Mai Chau valley within walking distance to Lac and Pom Coong villages. Sitting atop a private hill in Na Phon village, Mai Chau Ecolodge is the most secluded haven in Mai Chau with a stunning backdrop of lush rice paddies and emerald mountains embraced by clouds. Inspired by nature, the lodge was constructed to be a refuge of charm and serenity, providing guests a chance to forget about the worries of daily life and to enjoy the best Mai Chau has to offer. The Mai Chau Ecolodge was built entirely from natural materials with thatched roofs, bamboo interiors, wooden furniture and outdoor jungle showers. Every bungalow was meticulously designed to embody the local stilt house style and traditional Thai ethnic culture. The absence of television and other entertainment facilities keep the lodges true to what they stands for – a place to get back to nature.
Inspired by nature and local culture, Hue Ecolodge was constructed on the bank of the poetic Perfume River to fit in perfect harmony with the pristine countryside of Hue.

The lodge offers 10 bungalows with 20 rooms in total, all built from natural materials: bamboo, wood, rattan and straw.
