With summer on the horizon, we have so many exciting additions to make your stay at Topas Ecolodge extra sweet and special! Keep reading to see more of what you can expect during your next trip to Sapa! Let’s go!
First and foremost, we are so pleased to announce our signature reusable water bottles are back after more than 1 year! Made locally, these bottles have a stainless steel base covered by a sleek bamboo panel. Join our commitment to reducing single use plastics by enjoying this complimentary gift, on us!
Secondly, a delicious plate of seasonally-available fruits awaits you once you check-in to your bungalow, enjoyed from the comforts of your private balcony.
We’ve upgraded our dining situation! Say hello to our Infinity Dining Restaurant, located on the top floor of our double saltwater infinity pools. In addition to our room service menu, you will soon be able to sample our unique take on a traditional Northern Vietnamese styled dish, bánh bao. However, we utilize local flavors such as hoisin mushrooms, spicy oxtail, crispy black Sapa pork, and a crunchy vegan tempura, to just name a few.
Our new “Beat the Heat” menu launches as well at both the pools and our designated “sundowner’s plateau” this week! You have the opportunity to choose from a variety of exotic ciders, hard lemonades, and local artisanal beers. The GM’s personal fav is the John Lemon, so do give it a try and let us know if you agree or not!
Lastly, our Pavilion Barbecue received a bit of a facelift with an updated menu celebrating authentic regional flavors over an open fire in a casual-chic outdoor Scandinavian setting. With items like rainbow trout ceviche, colorful ratatouille skewers, and buttery chunky garlic mashed potatoes, you can be sure we will satisfy your appetite and taste buds all in one go!
There’s no better way to end a day than to watch the sun descend beyond the horizon. Especially at Topas Ecolodge, the sunsets are truly a magical time, showing a sky painted with an array of dreamy and vibrant colors.
We have decided to harness the power of this special time of day and offer to all guests who stay with us complimentary sundowners to help ease the transition from day to night. Our rotating menu of three different drinks include Elderflower Shandys, Silverstone High Teas, and of course, a Gin Fizz, every day from 17:00 – 18:00. Make sure to reserve at least 3 nights with us so you can have a chance to try them all nhé!
Our turndown service is up and running again, serving up delicious nightcap sweets and the next day’s weather forecast to help you prepare for the next day. Look for our specially made cards and let us know what you think!
We’re also bringing some music to our hillside in the Stilt House lounge housed on the ground floor next to the reception where the fireplace, espresso machine, and cocktail bar is. From 18:00 – 22:00 every night, come and listen to some tunes while having a cappuccino or gin and tonic with your loved ones.
In addition, we are happy to take you on a journey through sound with 2 hours of live flute music at the infinity pool, Pavilion BBQ, and Stilt House Lounge on select days.
While these are the latest updates, we have a few more surprises in store for you over the next coming months. Keep watching our Facebook Page and Instagram channel for the unveiling of our latest programs and products!
