Really nice hotel located nearby the natural reserve of Van Long ... easy access by foot or bicycle ! The hotel is really quiet in beautiful natural environment. A little "bad" point, access to Spa is not included in the accomodation fee.

Positive: spacious room and bathroom. You find sunhats and a bag to go to the pool. Relaxing environment. You only hear nature sounds. Delicious food. Very nice settings. Walking distance (350m) to the Van Long Nature reserve. Negative: it had his best days. Urgent need of maintenence. These things you do not expect in a resort: - people at reception... More

Emeralda Resort iis right beside Van Long reserve, which is a little off the way from everywhere else. However, the resort looks really nice and well maintain. Rooms on the other hand might require a little bit of refurbishing. Dinner was better then I expected as the food is quite tasty amongst many Vietnamese food I have tried. Take a... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay, our room opened on to the central pool. The view from pool blended with the river, creating the feel of an infinity pool. The resort is quiet and well maintained, very close to the old quarter, night market, lots of wonderful eateries and bike hires. Preferred the food in town, but we wanted local... More

The location of this resort hotel is good, set amongst the picturesque hills surrounding the ancient capital city of Vietnam. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, and the food OK, catering as it does for most tastes. However, despite being almost empty, we got the distinct impression from the staff that they would have preferred it if guests weren't... More

Amazing resort. A beautiful location. Luxurious room, large and well appointed. Huge bathroom. A semi private swimming pool (shared between 6 chalets clustered around it) as well as a large communal pool. The service was impeccable though the cocktails were on the expensive side for Vietnam. The food was delicious and the portions more than generous. We took the complimentary... More
