Topas Riverside Lodge

Stylish Sapa adventures

Topas Riverside Lodge is a boutique lodge infused with charm and family spirit situated deep in the lush valley of Hoang Lien National Park. The lodge is connected to the pretty village of Nam Cang by a wooden suspension bridge that crosses the gently cascading river.  

The sister property to Topas Ecolodge, Topas Riverside Lodge’s location offers guests the chance to engage with five different ethnic minority villages and take part in active adventures. Surrounded by nature, the Lodge is also an ideal place to relax and reset while enjoying a varied menu of fresh locally inspired cuisine.  Wellness and running retreats can be organized by request, offering a chance to truly escape and unwind.  

Adventures off the beaten track

Discover Vietnam beyond Sapa’s well-trodden tourist paths, enjoying the friendliness and hospitality of the local community on our package tours and Sapa daytrips.

Your home away from home

Our 14 cozy rooms are small while offering all you need in terms of comfort and convenience. The rooms are furnished with comfortable bedding, mosquito nets, a luggage rack and space to hang your clothes, as well as air-conditioning and heating, while the bathrooms come with standard toiletries, a hot water rain-shower, and hair dryer.

About us

The original lodge was built in 2013 by one of Nam Cang’s oldest Red Dao minority families who have lived in the village for four generations. Since 2019, the lodge has been fully owned and operated by Topas Explorer Group, incorporating all the original features along with some modern updates to the facilities and excursions on offer. 

Culture and Adventure

Thanks to our unique location deep within the valleys of Sapa, opportunities for adventure and discovering the local culture abound. Right on our doorstep are trails and lanes ideal for hiking, running or cycling, taking you through glorious scenery. The river that runs right in front of the Lodge is perfect for a refreshing swim or dip and the nearby villages offer the chance to interact with local communities on a cultural village walk.
