Topas Riverside Lodge

Stylish Sapa adventures

Topas Riverside Lodge is a boutique lodge infused with charm and family spirit, situated in the wild jungles of Hoang Lien National Park, connected to Nam Cang Village by a wooden suspension bridge across a busting river.

The property’s highlights include cultural engagement with 5 different ethnic minority villages, lush nature at your doorstep, and locally-inspired cuisine prepared with Vietnamese flavors and international standards. 

The sister property to Topas Ecolodge, Topas Riverside Lodge excels in cultural encounters, wellness retreats, and nature exploration, perfect for rejuvenating the body, mind, and spirit after a hectic week in the city.

Here, you can discover the real and remote Vietnam beyond the well-trodden tourist paths of Sapa and witness the friendliness and warm hospitality of the local minority people. As you watch children splash in the river right next to your lodge, you will have a taste of life in the mountains as it has gone on for centuries.

Adventures fit for explorers

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