1. Innovative and Ecological Architecture
At the heart of Can Tho Ecolodge is our 12 thatched cottages, standing proudly around our grounds as a fusion of natural design and Vietnam’s rural heritage. Each cottage contains four rooms that are decked inside and out with renewable materials, starting with red brick walls, continuing through palm leaf roofing, coconut husk insulation, jackfruit wood baths, stone vessel sinks and finishing with rattan and bamboo furnishings. Not only are many of these materials renewable and extracted from the local environment, but they also help our guests to experience the lives of local people and understand more about their deep connection with their naturally abundant homeland.
2. Eco-friendly Accommodation
Our eco-friendly efforts don’t stop with the rooms! The whole of Can Tho Ecolodge operates on green principles when it comes to eco-friendly living, including the use of solar power for outdoor lighting and water heating, the collection of spring water from natural sources and the 100% safe treatment and release of wastewater back into the surrounding rice paddies and rivers. We also limit plastics with canvas bags, paper straws and refillable water bottles, as well as offer eco-tours that help guests to understand and benefit the natural environment.
3. Local Produce
The Mekong Delta is known as ‘the Rice Basket of Vietnam’ for its unbelievably rich soil that produces the majority of Vietnam’s rice as well as fruit and vegetables. As part of our initiatives to support local businesses and to provide our guests with scintillating food, Can Tho Ecolodge buys the bulk its produce from local sources at daily markets. This means that our hardworking neighbours can continue to earn a living from their trade and that guests of our ecolodge have access to culture-soaked dishes such as elephant-ear fish, braised chicken in lemongrass and fried eel.
4. Amenities and Extras
We encourage our guests to get out of the rooms whenever they can and explore the other wonders of our lodge and beyond. Onsite we have 3 splendid swimming pools, a relaxing spa, an open-plan restaurant and a crescent-shaped bar lining the pool. Free bicycle rental enables you to see the outlying greenery of Can Tho at your own pace via village paths, beside rice fields and along canals that cut through the jungle. If you want professional guidance, our eco-tours get you that much closer to the action through trekking, cycling, visits to markets and explorations of the city. Our workshops take it a step further by offering craft classes run by local artisans. It’s safe to say you’ll never be bored at one of Vietnam’s top eco-friendly accommodations!
5. Perfect Location
Can Tho Ecolodge owes a sizeable chunk of its charm to its exquisite location in the southern suburbs of Can Tho. We lie in convenient reach of the city but enjoy every single moment that our peaceful surroundings supply, characterised by birdsong, babbling streams and the gentle sway of palm trees. A quick cycle from our doors will reveal a rustic world of quaint villages, exotic fruit farms, cacao farms and bird parks. We are just a few minutes away from the Mekong Delta’s number one attraction – Cai Rang floating market – and just a few more minutes away from other Can Tho stalwarts like Binh Thuy ancient house and Bang Lang stork sanctuary.
6. The Gorgeous Pools
Nothing beats time at the pool; and Can Tho Ecolodge really has you covered on this one! Our magnificent central pool area is comprised of 3 pools – the adult pool, kiddie pool and Jacuzzi pool – each designed with our guests’ utmost bliss in mind. For couples, families and individuals, our pools are the highlight of a stay with us and a great way to melt into the paradise that the Mekong Delta is known for. Take a seat on a reclined deckchair, shaded by a palm-leaf parasol, and while the day away with a well-earned cocktail by the shimmering water. You deserve it!
7. Spacious Rooms
Each of our 44 Deluxe rooms at Can Tho Ecolodge is spread across a 56m2 area, giving you plenty of room to stretch out and make yourself at home. In this space you’ll find a wonderful king-sized bed or double twin beds at the centre, looking out onto a room decked with local trinkets and crafts long practiced in the Mekong Delta.
