I stayed at this resort for one glorious night last year, and it is easily one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. Being so far away from everything you cannot hear a single car, panoramic views of the magnificent mountain peaks, simple yet elegant interior - this is a place to refresh and rejuvenate. The management team... More

It is our last night at the lodge and we have enjoyed the serenity enormously and are grateful to the Danish for their investment and dedication to creating an incredibly beautiful lodge which only enhances the area. It sits beautifully on the hill side, surrounded my mountain wild flowers and bamboo. We have been impressed by Eric's knowlege of the... More

I must admit after the long train journey from Hanoi and the drive from the station we were exhausted by the time we reached the Lodge. However, the trip was worth what awaited us. An excellent, well run and efficiently managed resort with friendly staff, set in an amazing location. Hiking and biking trips were available, but one never felt... More

Good place in normal day while no one around you. Very nice restaurant with very good food! But it is just enough for 1 or 2 days stay. If more stay, it can be bored. If you'd like to go Silver waterfall, Ham Rong Mountain, or other place, a hotel at Sapa center will be more convenient. Resort has a... More

Thank you for writing to TripAdvisor In general our guests stay for 2 nights at Topas Ecolodge. Considering the amount of time used to get to and from the lodge, this will make the stay here more rewarding. Depending on physical ability, it is possible to do all kinds of trekking and mountain biking. Everything can be arranged in advance... More

A fabulous experience we had staying at this resort with my 2 children, aged 13 and 10 at the time. (Oct 2011-bit of a late review but think of it often as one of those very special places) We embraced the culture, trekking and life of the locals in the villages surrounding. Photographically...AWESOME! Loved the scenery, people, and the Lodge... More

This place is unique. Set up as a joint venture between a visionary Danish couple and the local government, it consists of a series of rustic, straw roofed buildings ranged round the crown of a remote hillside close to Vietnam's highest mountains. Accommodation is in a series of white-painted, stone built bungalows each with its own balcony overlooking a stunning... More

Thank you for writing to TripAdvisor A short note about the ownership of Topas Ecolodge. In 2003 when the lodge was built it was done in a partnership between the danish company Topas and a local family in Sapa. Last year the ownership fell totally on danish hands. We still work close with the family, as they arrange a great... More

If you are after 5 star service or amenities this may possibly not be the place for you. If you are after amazing views, a quiet place away from the city, somewhere with lots of outdoor activities and are ok with the occasional bug in your room then this is 100% somewhere worth staying. I found the manager extremely nice... More

I really had no idea what to expect from an "Eco lodge", but was incredibly impressed with what I found. Spacious rooms with stunning views, away from the chaos of Sapa town. Delightful. To sit on the terrace with a cup of tea and just drink in the view. Heaven. Thoroughly recommend. Only thing I had issues with were the... More

We stayed one night at Topas Ecolodge in Sapa during July. Pros: - The rooms had amazing view, and the scenic drive through the mountains toward ecolodge was quite amazing. The view was arguably better those in Sapa. - The service was decent, however, most of them can't speak good English. Cons: - Activities/Tours offered by the Topas (office located... More
