About Topas Group
It has all started in 1993 when our parent company, Topas Explorer Group, started running adventure tours to Sapa and Fansipan mountains area. From that an idea of building a comfortable explorer’s base was first born, first with Topas Ecolodge in 2005 and again with our humble abode as you know it today, Topas Riverside Lodge.
Originally a homestay operated in partnership with a local Red Dzao family, Topas Riverside has recently been remodeled and modernized, fully owned by Topas Travel Vietnam as of 2019. Keep reading to find out more about our team as well as our other companies!
We may not be a homestay but our small team does it’s best to imbue Topas Riverside Lodge with a strong sense of family warmth and friendliness.
Locally hired, some of our staff have been with us since the conception of our sister property, Topas Ecolodge, in 2003!
