Once open, Can Tho Ecolodge will be a proud manifestation of the four key values of our company – Asia Ecolodge. Through a local approach to international tourism, our ecolodge fluidly marries the concepts of locality and luxury, resulting in accommodation that presents the best of Vietnam to our overseas and domestic visitors.
In both the literal and the spiritual sense, Can Tho Ecolodge presents the concept of nature to each one of our treasured guests. Along with a location nestled in the verdant southern Vietnamese countryside, the Ecolodge is constructed of natural materials from the immediate local area including mangrove wood, bamboo, stone, coconut, palm leaves, and red brick. About 55% of the lodge is devoted to soaring coconut trees and thick, leafy shrubs.
Just 16% of the Ecolodge is utilized for building space in an effort to minimize our impact on Can Tho’s countryside. We also use solar power, biofuel, and a treatment plant to safely discharge wastewater into fields and rice paddies. Most of our construction materials are from renewable sources and many of our eco-activity tours help to support local farmers around the region.
Our employment of 90% local staff from underprivileged villages helps to showcase the distinctive culture of the Mekong Delta and champion the tranquil way of life developed over thousands of years on the banks of the Mekong River. In the restaurant, guests will find a full menu of local cuisine caught, grown or purchased from local farmers and fishermen, while our eco-activity tours open the window to the Mekong Delta’s modest and gorgeous traditions.
The local staff at Can Tho Ecolodge are rightfully proud of their heritage and homeland. Our responsible tourism initiative works to benefit both the local community and wilderness of the Mekong Delta through local employment and eco-tours. We heavily endorse the protection of the environment and ask all of our guests to do the same during their stay with us.
