Sapa, like Ha Long Bay also attracts tourists solely on the merit of its natural beauty. The region is rich in opportunities for treks, homestays and getting close with ethnic minority peoples. Here is the best collection of luxury hotels in Sapa that are ideal bases for exploring the stunning northern hill station.
Topas Ecolodge is an eco-friendly hotel situated atop a majestic hill with breathtaking views on all sides. In an area that is historically known for its non-sustainable business practices, the Topas Ecolodge is one of the only sustainable and well-intentioned establishments in the region. Not only do they keep electricity usage to a minimum, use leftover food to feed livestock and recycle and reuse old materials, the hotel also provides employment and education opportunities for the ethnic minorities in the region. There are only 25 bungalows available, all furnished up to a four-star standard – so booking in advance is recommended.
Pao’s Sapa Leisure Hotel
Pao’s is nestled on the side of a hill, overlooking the spectacular Muong Hoa Valley – a mountain range painted with rice terraces and dotted with tribal villages. All 223 rooms evoke the cultural identity of Sapa, and come with the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay. Only a few minutes here and you’ll fall in love with their world-class Vietnamese hospitality.
Sapa Horizon Hotel
Due to unfavorable reviews of a hotel with a similar name, the Sapa Paradise View Hotel is now called Sapa Horizon Hotel. Rooms are newly renovated and have everything you need, but it is the team that makes your stay that much better. A bottle of wine, tea, juice, sweet cakes, even a sandwich for the bus back to Hanoi, you will receive many complimentary treats during your stay. Breakfast here is impressive with a huge spread for the buffet, and there’s even a menu of eggs, pancakes, sausages, and phở cooked to order. The fantastic all-round experience will leave you wishing every hotel stay from now on will be personalized like this.
