Situated atop two cone shaped hills, high in the spectacular Sapa Valley and the mountains of Hoang Lien National Park, you will find the small but perfectly formed Topas Ecolodge.
With just 25 mountain bungalows built as rustic chalet-style single rooms the lodge is intimate and at one with its natural location, making for a fantastically unique experience. The bungalows are all built using local white granite and yet have surprisingly luxurious interiors. Each of the bungalows also has a private balcony from which you can enjoy the magnificent panoramic views of the surrounding towering peaks and endless valleys.
The traditional restaurant serves Vietnamese and Western cuisine alongside stunning views, and the lounge makes a great place to wind down after dinner with a drink.
Lodge facilities include a rejuvenating spa specialising in the traditional Red Dao herbal bath, and a newly built infinity pool with some of the best pool views we've ever seen. The scenic location with spectacular views invites you explore the unique trekking and mountain biking trails in the backyard of the lodge, but the lodge is also great for ultimate relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Why we love it
The views from the infinity swimming pool are just breathtaking.
