The area is so nice, peaceful and lot of green. The host was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. There was wide range of options for trekking, boating or watching animals in the national park. Furthermore, you could just walk around the village and enjoy the life here is such a great experience.

Wonderful peaceful location along the river and a short walk from the park. Friendly staff, clean and great value rooms. So many beautiful fruit trees, including many guests are welcome to pick and eat! Also the restaurant had what we considered the best french fries in Vietnam (and we have lived here for many years).

The staff is extremely friendly and interacted with us in English and in French. The rooms were extremely clean and The room had an amazing view of the river and the forest. The breakfast was very good and the staff helped us with everything, from managing our transportation from HCMC and back to booking our Tours in Cat Tien. The value for money is extremely high!! Will highly recommend this place to everyone and will definitely come back :)

This is such a cute lodge near the entrance to Cat Tien National Park! Our room was very spacious with large beds, and there are lovely outdoor patios overlooking the river that are great at night. The food was also good, especially when there was a set dinner menu. And the staff was extremely friendly and helpful - recommending many interesting activities in the area. If you get the chance, take the wildlife watching boat trip on the river (at sunrise or sunset)! The guide was amazing and we saw so many creatures (2 kinds of monkeys, kingfishers, herons, and more!)

Amazing place to stay! I like everything: the room and the bed, great location and surrounding, very friendly and helpful stuff, super good internet (cause I need it for work), great breakfast, animals on the spot and the price is sooooo nice! I'd really like to stay there longer, nice runaway from the hectic city! A little bit expensive food, but it covers by the room price for sure!!
