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

Several friends and I decided to escape for the weekend from the busy streets of Hanoi and selected the Emeralda Resort as our destination. What a wonderful decision that was! The resort is absolutely stunning and is tucked into a nature preserve, which not only gives it its beautiful views, but also makes it incredibly quiet, something we were all... More

Emeralda Resort in Ninh Binh offers well-designed rooms with excellent amenities. Looking normal from the outside, my room is actually spacious and well laid out, with very comfortable bedding. Quite a few pools for relaxation, except that I had trouble opening my eyes in the pool water. Excellent choices at the buffet breakfast. Very attentive services in restaurants.
