Welcome to Topas Ecolodge
Certified a "Unique Lodge of the World" by National Geographic

Topas Ecolodge is a small lodge situated on a beautiful hilltop deep in the mountains of Hoang Lien National Park only 45 min outside Sapa town in North Vietnam.

We have 33 mountain bungalows all built as rustic chalet-style single bedroom houses from local white granite.

Our bungalows are designed in a relaxed style, each offering a private balcony from which you can enjoy magnificent views of towering peaks and endless valleys dotted with ethnic minority villages. The lodge makes a perfect base for exploring the surrounding area by foot or bike or simply relaxing far away from the busy urban areas.

Topas Riverside Lodge

Our sister lodge in Nam Cang village - the remote heart of Sapa

Red Dao Minority

Meet the ethnic minority communities that inhabit the region and experience their unique culture and lifestyle

A rustic - wifi free - experience

Due to our guest’s desire for privacy and search for peace and quiet, we do not allow day visitor access

Topas Ecolodge is not to everyone’s taste and it is important to us that guests understand the ways in which we differ from standard hotels before making a booking.

We are situated 18 km outside Sapa town and the bus journey takes approximately 45 minutes. We call it an “adventurous bus ride” mainly because the road condition is fairly poor in places, you’ll be passing through ethnic minority communities in the area and you’ll probably encounter a few buffalos, cows, goats or horses along the way.

We call ourselves a ‘lodge’ because we lack some of the basic features and services of a standard hotel. Our bungalows have no TV and no internet connection, enabling guests to completely escape from everyday life and immerse themselves with nature. For tranquil relaxation, we offer an infinity pool complete with breathtaking views of the mountains and valleys and a spa specializing in traditional Red Dao herbal baths.

Since we are committed to community development, our employees are friendly young people from the local minority tribes with varying degrees of English proficiency. We ask guests to be patient and be assured that there is always someone on site able to help with any language barriers.

Due to our mountain location, sometimes the weather is clear and sometimes it is cloudy, and after a heavy rainfall it can be very muddy. At times we experience power cuts and during the rice planting season we have some struggles with our water supply.

However, we have a very unusual location with a spectacular view and lots of unique trekking and mountain biking trails in our backyard. We invite people with an open mind and adventurous spirit to experience Vietnam in a different way and to escape the busy city life for a peaceful and authentic mountain getaway.
