Our stay at Hmong Mountain Retreat was amazing. The view and getting to know the Hmong people is worth everything. There was breakfast provided daily, a simple fare of eggs, toast and tomato sauce, coffee or tea. Some might complain about this, but we were satisfied - it was simple but sufficient. Lunch or Dinner at the Retreat is available... More

Advice: - Ensure you don't pay more than 60dong to get from the train to Sapa - Hmong Mountain retreat didn't tell us to go to Sapa Rooms to check in, right next to the maker. They will then take you to the huts - bring a jumper and raincoat if going in Dec Really helpful staff and lovely rooms... More

You will never forget days and nights at Hmong Mountain Retreat: You will sleep ABOVE rice paddys in a hut made of clay and bamboo in which you find a good, broad bed with warm blankets and a mosquito net and one light bulb, that's all. Moreover the view from your bed and/or terrace will be amazing! And you will... More

Great place to stay if you want to be a bit off the beaten track / encounter a little peace and quiet...heads up just bring a headlamp! Dark at night and no bathrooms in room. Having said that....most amazing views. On top of the rice fields. Views of the village. Fantastic location. Only thing that threw us off was that... More

Hmong mountain retreat is beautiful. We spent a beautiful night and day with friends. We met other travellers over the feasting dinner and breakfast! Do not expect 5 star service - you help your self to the fridge, get acquainted with the facilities and just sit back and admire the view. I recommend purchasing a bottle (or 2 or 3)... More

Although expensive the view is worth a million dollars from this resort. If you go for the view then you'll have a good time but expect anything else and you'll be disappointed. Our experience: * We emailed asking questions about checkin and were not replied to * Check in was confusing * Breakfast was delish a real highlight but was... More

All of the images are true, Hmong mountain retreat is a really beautiful place and deeply rooted in a eco-conception of staying in Sapa. You sleep in a palafitte with walls made of earth and roof made of leaves, though very comfortable, the place is not silent, you're in the middle of nature and there are animals like frogs.

We decided to go there after reading their description of the idea behind the retreat (from their website). We were ready to pay almost double for a night because we were convinced that its was going to be a one of a kind experience. We got there by noon. There was no one who speaks English and so you pretty... More

I stayed in the H'Mong mountain retrreat with my wife and three children (aged 2, 4 and 6) and we all thoroughly enjoyed the stay. We stayed in the larger 2 bedroom bungalow for 3 nights and found the whole experience to be a highlight of our travels in Vietnam. The staff were very friendly and helpful, both here and... More
