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.
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.
The area around Topas Ecolodge abounds with opportunities for walking and mountain biking. Options range from a few hours of relaxed walking or biking to a full day of more strenuous activities. As well as the chance to explore the diverse beauty of the natural surroundings and enjoy the fresh air and peaceful atmosphere of the mountains, treks and cycle rides take in visits to the villages inhabited by some of the unique ethnic minority groups who live in the area around the lodge. We can also arrange trekking or biking in combination with an overnight stay at our sister lodge, Topas Riverside Lodge. Please see our list of package options or contact us for more details.
We offer a package which combines accomodation at both of our mountain lodges, Topas Ecolodge and Topas Riverside Lodge, giving guests the chance to completely escape and experience life in the mountains.
There are a variety of tour packages available for guests staying at Topas Ecolodge. These include a relaxation only package, a range of hiking and mountain biking tours, and trips which take in visits to local hill tribe villages and minority markets.
Our tranquil infinity pool is surrounded by rice terraces high in the mountains and has incredible views of the peaks and valleys. It is the perfect setting to relax, take in the surroundings and feel at one with nature.
The pool has a shallow section for children and a massage-jet function. It is positioned half way up the hill overlooking the main lodge buildings and has a bar and sun lounger area. The pool is just steps away from our spa and both are the ideal retreat after a long morning spent hiking or cycling.
True to our commitment to sustainability, the water for the pool is heated using an eco-friendly system which uses 85 per cent less energy than standard technology.
To help guests truly unwind, our serene spa offers traditional Red Dao herbal baths and massage, providing the perfect treat after a day of intrepid exploration and a chance to discover more about the special ways the mountain people use herbs in their daily life.

RESTAURANT & LOUNGE
Restaurant and lounge were created using two old traditional Tay stilt houses, carefully moved piece by piece from their original site and reassembled at the lodge. Facilities were added to meet modern standards while respecting the original and historical qualities of the buildings.
The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner for up to 70 guests, with ala carte lunch and dinner menu offered. Breakfast consists of mainly international dishes and includes freshly baked bread, homemade jam and fresh fruit juice.
Here in the Lounge you will find a bar offering a range of beverages and snacks. You will also find different board games and some toys for children. We have a small library where you are welcome to borrow a book or donate any you no longer need. A cosy fireplace keeps the place warm during the winter. The lounge is the only place at the lodge equipped with wifi.
