Chi-Bu Riverside Resort & Camp Chi-Bu
Two distinct venues next to each other
Chi-Bu Vietnam was created in 2018 by Ben Lowsley-Williams, a British national living in Vietnam since 2016. When he discovered this beautiful 2.5 hectares’ large piece of land by the Ong Keo River, just a short drive from Saigon, he decided to create not only one but two unique concepts in South Vietnam. He wanted to offer both children and adults a place to escape the city and enjoy the natural Vietnamese countryside he himself loved and enjoyed so much.
Chi-Bu Riverside Resort
Small boutique resort with only 7 well appointed and luxury cottages surrounded by tropical gardens and on the riverfront.
Chi-Bu Riverside Resort’s architecture and furnishings are inspired by his numerous travels throughout SE Asia. A truly hidden Oasis, just one hour outside of Saigon, offering high-end boutique accommodation surrounded by lush tropical gardens. The resort is meant for adults to really just get away from it all and relax, recharge and reset from the stress of city life. The riverside lounge area just begs you to enjoy the clean fresh air. Quality food using organic, seasonal ingredients is served in the small restaurant by the river. Golf courses nearby, swimming in clean waters and water activities round up what Chi-Bu Riverside Resort can offer you.
Adjacent yet completely separated venue and lodging for kids holiday camps, company events like team-building and family outings.
Talking with friends, many of them teachers, the idea came to create a sort of kids’ hostel where children would have the same kind of freedom than adults, their parents, to spend time in nature doing what kids’ love to do! Have fun together with other kids, enjoy activities and games and maybe even learn a thing or two in a non-school environment. And so Camp Chi-Bu was born and is popular not only for kids but also for companies and family outings! Ben received a huge amount of help and advice from many of Saigon’s international school teachers and outdoor education specialists to provide a safe and enjoyable environment.
