Located amid the spectacular scenery of the Truong Son Mountain Range in central Vietnam and sitting astride the beautiful Kon River, about 60km from Da Nang Airport, 90 km far from Hoi An and 170km far from Hue, Bho Hoong offers intrepid travellers an insight into the way of life of one of Vietnam’s ethnic minorities.

The five stilted bungalows in Bho Hoong village have been individually styled and each takes the name of an animal sacred to the Co Tu people. The immense skill and craftsmanship of the local people is much in evidence in the wood, rattan and thatch construction. Generations of working with natural materials have given the Co Tu people the ability to craft beautiful homes that also stand secure against what can be at times extremely harsh weather in this mountainous tropical region.

Local artisans have lovingly carved, woven and painted the many decorative works adorning the bungalow interiors with each reflecting their unique culture and heritage. All bungalows have their own private balcony overlooking the peaceful Kon River, the perfect place to rest, read, contemplate and forget all your troubles.

Modern conveniences such as marble en suite bathrooms and comfortable mattresses with high quality linen have been added to suite Western tastes. The very high ceiling create an open and airy space. These creature comforts  combined with Co Tu artifacts create an atmosphere that is at the same time both exotic and familiar and shape a space where untroubled sleep in virtually guaranteed.

Each bungalow includes 2 rooms (1 double room and 1 twin room), separate by a wooden panel and wooden stairs for friends and small families. Locally grown tea awaits people in their bungalow and our staff are on hand to cater to any request.


A Co Tu Lullaby

Suck and sleep, my baby…
May your ancestors protect you.
May your dreams bring a smile.
Life is long;
rice grows uneasily on swidden fields,
and the forest is full of malevolent spirits!
My baby, suck and sleep…
The buffalo have already come back to the village.
Don’t cry when night falls;
you have to sleep.
May the good spirits bring you nice dreams.
My baby, suck and sleep…
Until the cock sings!”
