We were supposed to stay at a hotel in Sapa, but there was no space so our hotel people essentially suggested we should go here. We were not disappointed. The place has stunning views, the rooms are beautiful, and the restaurant's food is outstanding. People's English isn't great, but overall they all try their best to be helpful--and they are!...

Dear Ricatom87. Thank you for a great and informative review. Sure, our Ecolodge is not for everyones taste, but the once loving nature, quiet and special mountain experiences. This is not a "normal" hotel, I am happy you understand and like the concept. We also highly recommend using our direct shuttle from your hotel in Hanoi. Not because we are... More

My husband and I had a lovely three day, 2 night visit to Topas Ecolodge. We did the prearranged hiking and mountain biking package (details on their website) and had a fantastic experience. The scenery is beautiful, accommodations were great, and the staff was helpful and kind. Our guide throughout the three excursions (two biking, 1 hiking) was also superb.... More

This place was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Vietnam. The staff was extremely friendly, the food was delicious and the scenic views are incredible. You definitely want to add trekking and motorcycle day trips to the agenda while you are there and visit some of the locals. Wake up in the clouds early in the morning... More

This place haas an amazing location and is simlpy charming. Very romantic place. We loved our room with the balcony with an amazing view. Really beautiful to walk around. Only one thing we disliked, the food. There is only one restaurant and the food is not excellent. But everything else is just perfect!

The accommodation, staff and meals cannot be faulted. Food reasonably priced considering there is no where else to eat. They do need to purchase some new games / entertainment as there is no TV. Be mindful that you will be hassled by local hill tribe people selling their produce, one must be very clear that your "not shopping"

Dear Janette. Thanks for your review, glad you liked your stay! We will look at our games in the louge area. We have noted that some visitors tend to bring games and LEGO to their rooms resulting in less fun for others. We will follow up. Best regards Asger, general manager More

Topas Ecoledge is 18km scenic route from Sapa town, located at Thanh Minh Commune (ethnic village). We got there by bus from Lao Cai train station, narrow road but the driver was very skilful. The actual lodge is on top of the hill and surrounded in mist. The room is simple contemporary rustic and with mountain view, just attractive. From... More

My wife and I literally couldn't believe the views from the Topas Ecolodge. Not just the gorgeous view from our villa, but from almost any point on the premises. This ecolodge is located on a ridge overlooking beautiful rice paddies in almost every direction. The room itself was beautiful, the bathroom was gorgeous, we had a lovely balcony, and they... More

We definitely recommend Topas Ecolodge and would stay here again without a doubt. It is set in breathtaking surroundings. The joy here is being off the main tourist trail. The guided hikes are wonderful - the only people we came across were local villagers and the most stunning landscapes. The staff is really friendly. They are delightful people and really... More

The hilltop setting and the 3-D magnificently panoramic view have an instantly calming effect on the body and soul. Words cannot describe the beauty of the surrounding landscape, the myriad butterflies and dragonflies, and the water buffalo at work in the adjacent field. The service by the young local people is faltering but charming and attentive. Our only regret is... More

Dear IntrepidHector. Thanks for your beautiful review! I am very happy you liked your stay and thanks for letting others know that one night is a too short stay. We think the same!
