“A haven in the countryside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My sister and I stayed here for 3 nights. After the craziness of Hanoi, we couldn't believe it when we suddenly turned off a market street and pulled into this oasis that seemed to appear from nowhere. Our trip was mixed with budget accommodation and a couple of luxuries - and this was certainly a luxury. The rooms were excellent, the pool lovely and we ate in the restuarant each night, and yes it was more expensive, but the food was superb (esp recommend the penne carbonara, if you want a break from Vietnamese food after a while). On our last day we did not leave until 9pm due to catching the overnight train to Hue, and sadly the weather was awful. But we were able to arrange a late check out of midday and then moved to the lovely indoor pool area, where we lazed on the big day beds reading, swam and both booked a massage (which were incredible). After another great meal they then arranged a taxi to the train station for us. All in all a very enjoyable stay in a beautiful resort.

We stayed 2 nights at the Emeralda as part of our Northern Vietnam tour. We could have easily stayed for 5 days and do lots of things in the area as well as lounging by the poolside and eating the delicious food served in this resort. All the staff are very friendly and will answer any questions you may have. They have lots to do in the resort with a lounge area, pool table, internet and wine bar. We didn't get to use any of the amenities as we were out touring with 2 kids during the day. The rooms are large and spacious even with an extra bed in the room. If I get to go back to Vietnam, I would stay here again.

After being in boutique hotels, I found this place very large and impersonal. You are driven to your room on a golf cart. It is huge. The rooms were spacious and clean. To get to the restaurant you can call for a golf cart pickup or walk. The restaurant served tasty food, overall, though expensive. I prefer to stay at a smaller scale hotel. Breakfast was amazing though -- very broad assortment and good!!

Dear beenar0undl0ts,

Thank you for taking time to write your review.

Emeralda Resort Ninh Binh is truly a large resort built in the area of 16ha, yet it offers a great sense of privacy and peace that is difficult to find elsewhere. We really appreciate your kind words on the rooms, food served at Sen and Organics restaurant although you are definitely a boutique hotels lover. Did you know we have a sister property called Ana Mandara Villas Dalat which may perfectly suit your taste?

Our team hopes to still be able to welcome you back in the future.

Best regards,
The General Manager

We stayed unfortunately only one night in this hotel with early departure in the morning. Hence we were unable to enjoy the facilities. The rooms are gorgeous, looking like a private villa with Asian style. There is a very small garden with a shower outside. The bathroom is very nice and well furbished, with an old fashioned design but modern bath tube overlooking the private garden. The Breakfast is achieving the international standards.
The organic restaurant is alo recommended.

Dear Nicolas T,

We cannot thank you enough for sharing about your short but sweet experience with us.

Staying only for one night means you only have time to enjoy the room, dinner, and breakfast, and we are thrilled that you were satisfied with all these facilies and services.

We eagerly await your soonest comeback whenever your travel schedule brings you back to Ninh Binh.

Best regards,
The General Manager

We spent there 3 nights in a duplex bungalow.
All was as mentioned, good services, warm inside swimming and outside swimming pool.
There is also an area for children to play.
We rented two tandem cycles with children and enjoyed a two hours tour close by. At 500 meters for here there is an amazing view on river and rocks. We cycles into a small village.
