Wow...what a beautiful property! The villas were beautiful - all have private views of the valley and decorated minimalistically but having the old world charm of warm stone and Spanish tile - just gorgeous. We were there for 3 days and trekking during the day and spending the evening in the balcony next to the bar/game room - just amazing....

The setting is absolutely stunning, the views are fabulous and the abundance of birds and butterflies is quite incredible. It's also well off the main tourist trail and gives access to more remote areas. The rooms are very clean and comfortable (although you have to be prepared to share them with the occasional exotic insect). It's more expensive to stay...

We weren't sure what to expect from the information we had but this is a great little oasis away from the tourists, noise and bustle of the town of Sapa. Topas feels like it's in the clouds with mountains all around. The executive bungalow we had was very comfortable, again with great views, especially the sunrise. The meals in the...

Dear Harveyvals, This is a pleasant review to read, thank you for having shared it with worldwide travelers. Being away from Sapa is an advantage for us as the area keeps its charm and authenticity. We do offer a series of tours, and for sure, few would fit your requirements. You can questions at reservation time to plan your journey...

My wife and I had a great time and enjoyed the quietness, the great views, friendly staff and wonderful food. We were so glad that we got our of the noise and crowds of Sapa and stayed here. The access road from Sapa however was in very bad shape and worse than many logging roads that I have traveled. The...

Dear Rodbender7429, Thank you for having taken the time to review our property. Good to see that you rate us 5 stars while to road is rated 1 star but the road should be renovated within 2017.

We had booked our package tour through Voyages Jules Verne in the UK as part of our 21 year anniversary celebrations. And, as is usual for us we read the less than positive Trip Advisor reviews first to see what the "worst" experience was and when written (and what we may expect). It was obvious the Ecolodge had some issues...

Everything about this lodge is amazing : the fact that it helps the community, that it is away from city centre although still offers a bus for easy access, the views are stunning, even the fact that there is no TV in the rooms - it is so refreshing, brings you closer to nature and allows you to fully disconnect...

While many places in Vietnam do not always excell in style, this resort is a welcome exception. The complex is beautifully integrated in the landscape and is oasis of peace. The lodges themselves are quite simple but functional. The lodge works mainly with the local minorities who are extremely friendly and willing to learn. The food served at the restaurant...

We planned our trip to Vietnam and Cambodia earlier this year and reviewed many places from home. We came across Topas Ecolodge and immediately started to plan our trip to the north of Vietnam around this location because we liked it so much. A few month later we arrived at the Ecolodge in reality and it was just perfect. We...

This is a lovely lodge. The rooms are comfortable the views are outstanding. The guides for the activities were excellent. My only comment is that the food service could use improvement. Dishes come out erratically and there was limited vegetarian options that were interesting.
