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. Everyone... More

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

Hmong Mountain Retreat is a must if you are spending time in Sapa, even if you can only make it for one night. The views from the huts are amazing and our 4 young children had great fun playing in the rice fields with the local children. Bring warm clothes! We slept with 4 layers on! There are some lovely...

The mountain retreat is 6km outside of Sapa and quite a trek uphill if you want to walk it, there are a couple of free mini bus trips between their restaurant in Sapa and the retreat but there could do to be more. The retreat is in an amazing location providing you aren't sitting in the clouds (warm clothes are... More

There's no doubt, the scenery is magnificent - unlike anything I have seen. Two nights on a mountain side in a traditional hut was an experience to say the least. Unfortunately the start left a little to be desired. When arriving at Lao Cai Train station after a 10 hour train ride, weary and bewildered, it was pure luck that... More

I made the mistake of coming here in winter. The rice paddies were fallow and the mist hung heavy in the air. At times we could barely see a metre or two in front of us. To add to that it was freezing. I knew I was booking an authentic experience and had packed warm clothes but really struggled once... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay here. The place is dominated by the spectacular view down the valley through rice terraces. We had chosen bungalow 1 which has the only uninterrupted view. We have never stayed anywhere with such a vista visible from our bed and from our terrace. It really is the most stunning outlook and it is... More
