Most underrated Vietnam holiday resorts!
Topas Eco Lodge, Sapa
Serenely beautiful is an apt description of Topas Eco Lodge. It sits on a hilltop in Hoang Lien National Park. Your adventure starts with the ride from Sapa, a little over 15 (10 miles) away.
The trip takes about 45 minutes because the roads aren’t that great. The bouncing journey is worth it, however, once you stand on the balcony of your one-bedroom bungalow with mountains as far as you can see. Activities include hiking, mountain biking, relaxing and visiting rice paddies and minority villages.
Hang Nga Guesthouse, Da Lat
The Hang Nga Guesthouse in Da Lat has been described as surreal, quirky and innovative, undoubtedly living up to its nickname of “Crazy House.” The architecture of this guesthouse seemingly resembles an amusement park more than a place for a peaceful night’s sleep.
It also has been described a something out of a creepy fairy tale: Walt Disney meets Salvador Dali. But you don’t have to stay there to look it over as the facility offers tours.
Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi
The Sofitel Legend Metropole in Hanoi is one of the most famous hotels in Southeast Asia. Located in the city’s historic French Quarter, the white colonial building with green shutters offers 364 luxury rooms. Located near the Opera House, the hotel was constructed in 1901, undergoing major renovations in the 1990s.
A popular meeting spot in colonial days, the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi counts celebrities and heads of state as its guests. Room décor ranges from classic colonial to contemporary, all designed to make guests feel at home.
Six Senses Ninh Van Bay, Nha Trang
If it’s seclusion you’re seeking, a stay at the Six Senses Ninh Van Bay is for you. It’s a 20-minute boat ride to this bayside resort on the East Vietnam Sea. Villas and suites have water or mountain views, wine cellars and private pools. Some villas are a short walk from the main lodge, adding to the seclusion.
You’ll find white sand beaches and water sports at this amazing hotel, as well as yoga sessions, or a boat down the Cat River and a mud bath in a hot springs.
