We had not planned to stay in this resort but ended here because our actual trip, a cruise in Halong Bay, got rescheduled due to a typhoon heading that way. The lime stone formations at Ninh Binh are said to be second best and have a great deal in common with how Halong Bay looks. It was indeed beautiful. Emeralda... More

The place is really quiet and fresh. The room is large enough for children to entertain. My kids enjoy walking, swimming and cycling around the resort. It is highly recommended if you need to escape from Hanoi for a 1-2 night holiday with kids. But it is not convenient if you want to explore some places around such as Cuc... More

Nihn Binh is an ideal place to have beautiful (and sweating) hikes / bicycle rides. Beautiful nature, breathtaking sceneries. And after all of this arriving in this resort with beautiful swimming pools, restaurants (with separate wine bar !) is just heaven on earth.

My family lived in a Duplex room with 2 beds. The problem is that there is only one bathroom for 4 people. It's really inconvenient. Moreover, the air conditioner on the second floor is right into us so it's extremely cold. Whenever I raise up the temperature, it's getting hot and prevents me from having a good sleep.

Arriving pretty much in the middle of nowhere, yet this place is serene, well facilitated, clean rooms, spacious bathrooms, good pools, very nice restaurant. Easy to say I've enjoyed staying here and can recommend it to whoever visits this area and can't be bothered with an exhausting day trip from Hanoi.

We have stayed in this very large resort for only one night. The resort is very nice in terms of appearance luxury and design. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. There are several swimming pools, one for each group of rooms. The only downside was that it is hard to get dinner outside the resort and that the restaurant we... More

I stayed 1 night as part of a business trip. The pros: Interesting village concept, spread out over large area. Cons: Staff don't understand or speak English. Weather was terrible - covered in haze so couldn't see much. Apparently this is common. Food was average. We had a BBQ one night which was good. Otherwise, nothing special. Not recommended. Maybe...

My family visited emeralda with friends. I have 2 teenage kids so we booked the Duplex room. It was awesome. Probably would have been better if the duplex rooms would include outdoor chairs by the balcony. Service is great. Staff are used to foreigners visiting.
