Just 3 hours away from Ho Chi Minh, the Longhouse is a wonderfull place to stay with children : being near the jungle but in a safe place, listening to the animals at night in a very comfortable bed, eating outside excellent dishes! The staff is very kind and friendly, and do everything to provide unforgetable activities. For us, they...

To start out, the trek was fantastic. My girlfriend and I were staying nearby and got there by motorbike. We were greeted by the staff and given leech socks and shoes. The guide was from the local ethnic minority. She was fantastic, very knowledgeable about plants in the forest. She set a good pace and slowed the pace of needed....

We stayed here one night. Jane is nice and speaks English well. The building is interesting and it's very peaceful and relaxing. On the other hand, it was surprisingly expensive to get transportation to the park, and for what we paid for the room ($25 per person) we expected a bit more. I'd recommend staying in cat tien instead.

Hi Cats Thanks for your review and I’m glad you enjoyed the peacefulness of the Longhouse and found it interesting. Sorry to hear you had troubles with your transport to and from us. Tourist buses all over Vietnam normally cost around 200,000 to 300,000VND one way and although this might be a little high it’s certainly better than taking the...

If you're seeking a nice place to take a break from busy and noisy Ho Chi Minh, don't look further! Birds singing in the morning would be the only noise to bother you at Ta Lai longhouse :) We had a nice and relaxing weekend, between kayaking on the lake, biking in the jungle and interacting with local minorities. Staff...

Came with a couple Friends for a weekend getaway from Hcmc! It was so nice to get back to nature and the long house is the perfect place to do that. The beds are surprisingly comfortable although even with the mosquito nets we still got a lot of bites! We had a bonfire both nights we were there and it...

There are no words to describe our stay in the longhouse! The staff is not only super friendly and welcoming, but they are also helping you with everything. Food is delicious and the accomodation is unique. Also very nice to see how this project supports the local community and creates jobs for the locals. Would recommend to anyone :).

The Long house is an ideal place for families as there is a lot of space for children to run around and burn off energy as well as activities like kayaking, light treks and cycling. Bear in mind the long house is 13km from the national park, although they do arrange plenty of trips. Also, the walk from the bridge...

Stunning location and the staff are extremely friendly.

The home-stay staff were also extremely friendly, good fun and informative about the project, the local area and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Enjoy a great night's stays surrounded by the jungles of Cat Tien National park (only 3 Hours from Ho Chi Minh) in our Longhouse. The Ta Lai longhouse is an adventure heaven overlooking Cat Tiens forests and steeped in the culture and history of the S'Tieng and Ma minorities. Pitched on the top of a hill, overlooking a lake our traditional longhouse offers a great jump of point to explore the surrounding areas. We offer a range of activities such as trekking, mountain biking, kayaking,animal watching and much more. If you don't fancy this then chill out and just relax in a hammock or swim in our lake only meters away. We have Morden facilities with showers, hot water, toilets, high speed internet for those who need to stay connected and a kitchen cooking amazing food!We collaborate with WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) by supporting a fund set up for various community based projects running in Ta Lai and Cat Tien. Your stay will directly contribute to helping develop these! We hope to see you soon!Ta Lai Longhouse Team ... more   less
