Surrounded by rice terraces, rolling hills, green forests and villages, Topas Ecolodge Sapa is a Danish-owned boutique property situated atop two conical hills deep in the mountains of Hoang Lien National Park, 45 minutes’ drive from Sapa in northern Vietnam.
Accommodation comprises 41 chalet-style stone bungalows in four different categories: Premium Executive Bungalows, Suite Bungalows, Deluxe Suite Bungalows, and the new and exclusive Pool Villas. Each bungalow and villa is constructed in local white granite, with its own private balcony offering glorious views of the rice terraces, the lower Sapa Valley and the Tonkinese Alps beyond.
The rooms are furnished in a cool minimal style in an unmistakably Scandinavian aesthetic, all with ensuite tiled bathrooms. Solar panels heat the water and provide electricity for the lights. Heating is provided during the winter months. There is no television or Wi-Fi in the rooms so be prepared to unplug and reconnect with nature. All bungalows can be configured with either one queen size or two twin beds.
Dining With A Danish Touch
All meals are served in a central two-storey building. Downstairs is a relaxing bar with cushioned furniture, while dining takes place on the upper floor. Topas Ecolodge is flanked by its own farm, which supplies the kitchen with fresh vegetables.
The Danish owners have developed a sustainable food supply system created from premium international ingredients such as imported meats and cheese as well as high-quality local ingredients. The Danish head chef works closely with a local team to create hearty Asian meals, served on a set-menu basis, which changes daily depending on seasonal produce.
Sublime Spa & Infinity Pools
Topas Ecolodge has two infinity pools, both with jaw dropping views of the peaks and valleys. The upper pool has a shallow section suitable for children and is heated with an eco-friendly system using 85% less energy than standard heating technology. The lower pool and jacuzzi is for adults only.
The Rice Spa offers traditional Red Dzao herbal baths and an array of wellness treatments, including massages and facials, created from the combination of ancient knowledge, local materials, and modern techniques. Mountain bikes are available free of charge, and the lodge offers a great range of excursions around the area.
