Moon Garden is in the middle of the North Vietnamese countryside, some distance from Hanoi. It's relaxing, charming and friendly - particularly the guide (Toan) who works there part-time. The food is superb and the rooms are first class - although the beds are traditional Vietnamese (and therefore VERY hard). This didn't worry us as we prefer firm beds but... More

We recently stayed at Moon Garden & were very impressed by the whole experience. We have travelled extensively in Asia & it is difficult to find a place like this. It is Vietnamese run & has a local feel that is both warm & authentic. It is quiet & unspoiled & not over run by groups of tourists - a... More

Moon Garden is near the hamlet of Ky Son, part of the historic Duong Lam village, about 55kms from Hanoi. The countryside is beautiful, with rice and a number of other crops. Activities included a cooking class, morning exercises, a bicycle tour and a walking tour around the historic local villages. The food was very nice, and the staff friendly... More

Very nice place overall, especially if you get the communal room by the pond. We felt uneasy about the tour-like programme directed by the staff. We'd have preferred something more hotel-like with optional activities to book. Moon garden had a bit of weird feeling about it. Also not much time to relax. We felt rushed. We like biking so we...

We came as a group of 2 couples, having booked and paid for the two-roomed Mango House several months previously. On arrival, one couple was shown to the Mango House, and one couple to the much smaller Frangipani room. (Note : some of the photos on the website are not of the Frangipani room, but the superior rooms). When we... More

A two hour drive from Hanoi, long way to enjoy a quiet moment. It was worth it. Regrettably the weather was bad, had it been better it would have been magnificent. You are greeted by wonderfully fragrant smells in the rooms which are very tastefully decorated with what looked like antiques and beautiful carvings and paintings. It is a great... More

Came here for one night after a 3 day cruise in Ha Long Bay. The journey was very long as we where taken from Ha Long to Ha Noi and then to Moon Garden. Very long way round. But we got there and it was fantastic. We arrived just in time for dinner and it was a superb meal. Very... More

I came here for one night to experience the Northern countryside. It is like staying at someone's home with a lovely garden. My room was comfortable and private, beautifully furnished and very large. Service is not five star but is friendly and sincere. Breakfast is not much but the other food was very good, authentic and abundant. I walked early... More

Planning a homestay experience, this was selected by our local tour agency and it was a pleasurable and different experience well worth including on your itinerary as a 2-day agenda. I'm not so sure you would add more than the standard 2 days, 1-night as there isn't much more to do or see unless you wanted to cycle around the... More

To really get a feeling for small village rural life 2 hours west of Hanoi. The rooms are authentic Vietnamese wood houses carefully designed and decorated. Meals are wonderful. Highlights were walking to the village and playing pool with the villagers and the bike ride through the countryside to the ancient village. This is away from all the main tourist... More
