We went up to Moongarden for one night and had a wonderful experience. We arrived early in the morning and we were greeted by our guide. There were a series of activities planned for the day ahead including, cookery course, foot message, steam bath, observing Buddhist prayers and my favourite the cycle around the area. We ate lunch and dinner... More

Unfortunately we only had one night here in between the cities of Hanoi and Saigon. A wonderful relaxing atmosphere was our first impression and that didn't change. The rooms were amazing and we were given separate bedrooms/bathrooms but both in the same long house. We were travelling as a couple and our 16 year old son. The Jasmine bath on... More

We started our Vietnam tour after arriving from Europe with a night flight. We stayed 2 days with our family so got a full house with two seperated and luxury rooms. We enjoyed the offered program with the biketour, cooking class, feet and bath experiences. You really have to go here to relax and enjoy the real countrylife of North-Vietnam.... More

We travelled as a couple with 3 kids - 9,11 and 1.5 yrs. We stayed in the Stilt house which is a tribal communal house on raised platform retrofitted with glass windows and air cond. It was wonderfully decorated with tribal paraphernalia. The beds were placed on the carpeted floor and each sleeping space partitioned off by curtains from the... More

If you are after luxury then this place is for you. They accommodate and cater from singles/couples right up to large groups. The staff are warm and will ensure that you enjoy your stay without being too intrusive to private/quiet time. Our days were scheduled well, not too crowded and allowed time for quiet reflection within the manicured gardens at... More

I echo previous comments. This really was a highlight of the holiday, especially the bike ride to local villages. But the beds...aaagh the beds. There's more give in concrete. Everything else was perfect...cooking course, a buddhist ceremony, the food, fishing, the care and attention of the staff, even exercising at 07.30 in the morning. They have created a home from...

Elegant restoration work, beautiful grounds, gorgeous rooms. Good food, fantastic staff, guides, biking to old temples. Not a real home stay - more an elegant inn unless you shay in Stilt House which is like a pretty dormitory Once we saw it we switched to a house and loved our stay Definitely a Vietnam must

The moon garden homestay was great, except for the bed. We couldn't sleep at all because the beds were so firm. Everything else was wonderful - the food, the people, the accommodations, the bikes, the tours. If the beds had just a little cushion, it would have been a great stay. I understand that the Vietnamese prefer very firm beds,... More

You simply have to visit the Moon Garden if you go to Vietnam. Apart from the rather firm matress absolutely everything else was faultless. We had a cooking class, bike ride to a local village and a fishing trip where we ate what we caught! The food was absolutely amazing both in presentation and flavour as well as being some... More

Moon Garden is a great place to relax - a perfect first stop in Vietnam to recover from jet lag. The staff are all quite friendly and attentive. There is not much English spoken (one staffer is proficient in French) but it is such a well-oiled machine with well-planned activities for guests (a short cooking class, some quiet pole-fishing, biking...
