Situated on a beautiful hilltop, deep in the mountains of Hoang Lien National Park, Topas Ecolodge has been listed among “21 Places To Stay If You Care About the Planet” by National Geographic.
“Sustainable, spectacular and engaged with local communities, these lodges are tucked into some of the planet’s wildest places” - National Geographic
The lodge has 33 mountain bungalows designed in an eco-focused manner, so whilst they are luxurious they also have an elegant simplicity which reflects the style of nearby villages and complies with strict environmental standards. Each bungalow features a private balcony with magnificent views of the Lower Sapa Valley, which is dotted with ethnic villages, and the “Tonkinese Alps” beyond.
The lodge is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life
Topas Ecolodge is operated on sustainable principles to ensure a minimal impact on the environment. As well as being eco-friendly, the resort employs local people and uses local products in order to share the economic benefits with the local community. It has also implemented a waste water facility to avoid polluting the surrounding area.
Located deep in the mountains of Hoang Lien National Park, the lodge is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life, whilst also providing an ideal location for soft adventure such as cycling, hiking, trekking or trail-running. Topas Ecolodge even organizes the Vietnam Mountain Marathon (VMM) with 10km to 100km trail running routes past rice fields, breath-taking valleys and across bamboo bridges.
Infinity pool in Topas Ecologde
In mid-2017, an infinity swimming pool opened overlooking the majestic mountains, which is heated by an eco-friendly system. Immersing one’s body in the pool after an active day exploring Sapa, overlooking the spectacular scenery, is a truly blissful experience.
