About the lodge – Topas Ecolodge is not to everyone’s taste.
Topas Ecolodge is the only one of its kind in Vietnam. It has an unrivalled, perfect location – situated atop two cone formed hills, set deep in the spectacular Sapa valley of northern Vietnam.
Topas Ecolodge is based on sustainable hotel operation values to ensure minimum impact on the surrounding environment.
It is situated 18 km outside Sapa town and the bus/car journey takes approximately 45 minutes. You may call it an “adventurous ride” mainly because the road condition is fairly poor in places, you’ll be passing through ethnic minority communities in the area and you’ll probably encounter a few buffalos, cows, goats or horses along the way. It’s a lodge in every meaning. The bungalows have no TV and no internet connection, enabling guests to completely escape from everyday life and immerse themselves with nature.
The lodge employs people from nearby villages and use local products and goods in order to bring economic benefits to our regional communities. Amongst other initiatives, a wastewater treatment facility, waste incinerator and a glass crusher are specially designed to recycle 100% of our glass.

The protected area encompasses approximately 30 km2 of scenic mountainous landscape, including Vietnam’s highest peak, Mt Fansipan (3142m) and the Hoang Lien mountain range. The mountains are covered with temperate and sub-temperate forests. This forest and the surrounding vegetation are home to a variety of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and insects, many of which are found only in north-west Vietnam and are of great biological significance. This is also the agriculture land of local with extravagant terraces. Its charms cannot be resisted.

* Since Topas ecolodge is committed to community development, their employees are friendly young people from the local minority tribes with varying degrees of English proficiency. If possible, please be patient with them and be assured that there is always someone on site able to help with any language barriers.
Due to our mountain location, sometimes the weather is clear and sometimes it is cloudy, and after a heavy rainfall it can be very muddy. At times, the lodge experience power cuts and during the rice planting season we have some struggles with our water supply. In the foggy, rainy or sunny day, the lodge will have its unique charm.
