Room, facilites and services were excellent. Expensive but worth the money. Beautiful rooms and many pools. Restaurant is really good and I can recommend the Vietnamese sandwiches especially the one with goat meet. No wifi in room, but that might be better for relaxing.

Lovely spot, a 2.5 hour drive from Hanoi but worth it to get away from traffic and the hustle and bustle of the city! Spent one night here after visiting Trang An and Bai Dinh. Lovely landscaping and gigantic rooms. Though overpriced, the restaurant and bar are the only show nearby, so just plan on spending more. Food was quite... More

This place is beautiful and located in a village near gorgeous landscapes of karst and rice paddies. The staff were very nice and helpful. The grounds are lush and well tended and the architecture is lovely. I would give 5 stars if not for a few missing details. For example, the room was a bit dirty in some spots and... More

Having been to Vietnam 3 times before in June, my husband and I were seriously not prepared for the dismal weather we experienced in Hanoi and Ninh Binh earlier this month and I am afraid it probably had an impact on our experience at the Emeralda where we were staying for 2 nights. Without doubt the hotel is stunning and... More

My only regret about Emeralda Resort Is that I didn't stay here longer. Although rather large, the layout of the resort & the rooms felt like a luxurious, serene hideaway. The beds were very comfortable; the bathroom was quite luxurious. W Breakfast was a very large, buffet & the quality of food excellent.
