Once again we were welcomed like preferred customers. The manager of this hotel does take care of every details. The grounds are very very well kept. The facilities A1. The food was perfect from breakfast buffet to diner party. The inside pool and spa area is to be seen and used.

This is a very lovely, huge property located near Ninh Binh. The large rooms are spread apart in separate clusters so you rarely see other guests-very private. They provide a huge buffet breakfast every morning. The Organics restaurant is very good for dinner. The staff is top notch. Extremely friendly and eager to go the extra mile to make sure... More

Our family stayed at Emeralda for 2 nights in late January. The restaurants and lobby looked great, but the designs of the rooms are very basic. I expected a mountain view from the room but was disappointed. It was very foggy when I arrived, so the "mountain view" was completely obscured until the morning when I was about to leave.... More

We had the fortune of staying here just last week but the time wasn't enough. Set as grouped bungalows, the rooms are spacious and well equipped in an eco friendly way. The restaurants and bar were great and the staff were lovely. I used the spa and found my massage excellent. Hubby used the large indoor heated pool which he... More

Stay arranged as part of a tour. Room facilities very good although the lighting is subdued to put it mildly. My husband was reading with a torch! A very nice indoor pool just right to warm us up and to soothe some aching muscles. However the changing area, while looking very good with lockers, showers and changing rooms was disappointing...

Sad to say, but we were only here for one night and did not arrive until after dark in the early evening. The surrounding area was not very attractive, and my husband and I were not optimistic, but the minute we pulled off the road and proceeded down the driveway, we knew we were someplace special. The check-in process was... More

We had a lovely room - it was enormous! They are divided into little clusters and we were in the bamboo one. Small central pool for all the rooms to share, private back gardens and very spacious bathrooms too. There was a little confusion over which restaurants were open when but the management compensated for the mess up. There is... More

The resort is set in beautiful and lush grounds. Very tranquil. Our room was large and had all we needed for a comfortable stay. Wifi worked well. Staff were very friendly and helpful. As it is in a rural area, be prepared for "wildlife". Although we did not see any rats when we stayed in Nov, there were frogs on... More
