Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

SoNa was one of the most luxurious stays we had in Vietnam, the resort is brand-new and feels like a step above any of the nearby accomodations. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and modern. A hidden gem within Ninh Binh.

The resort itself was an oasis from Ninh Binh city, it’s a green, well-kept space with home-grown teas and fruits for guests. The food and furnishing were all fantastic.

Special mention to SoNa’s staff, who were all incredibly friendly, kind, and professional. They really made us feel at home, and went the extra mile to help us get the most out of our holiday. Particular thanks to Tho, who managed our stay and was extremely professional, organised, and sweet. Tho was incredibly helpful and friendly, and improved our overall stay immensely. She is by far one of the best resort managers I’ve encountered in my life.

For anyone wishing to stay in the Ninh Binh city area, I heartily recommend SoNa Resort.

Great little resort with wonderful staff. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were a great size but beds were a little hard but seems to be the norm in Asia. The restaurant serves basic meals but hours could be limited due to staff. We came back from a day of activities around 1:30pm and chef went home early hmmmm. There is not a lot around so bring snacks with you. The pool area is great and I enjoyed relaxing by the pool very much. If you want to stay somewhere quiet and peaceful this is the place. Beer is 25,000 so you don’t need to worry about bring this with you😜

Sona is a beautiful resort with amazing staff. The extremely attentive and warm staff made Sona the best resort experience I’ve ever had in Vietnam.

They went the extra mile to help us out for everything we needed. Everyone, especially Tho (the receptionist), was so lovely and they took care of us as if we were family.

The resort itself is super clean, modern, and inviting. The staff take very good care of their facilities. All the food was so tasty 🤤

This hotel was very disappointing after seeing reviews and pictures online. To start on a positive, it is very beautiful outside and in summer I can imagine it he pool is lovely. However, there were several disappointing aspects to our stay. Firstly, the lack of hot water. I did go to reception and she informed me there was a switch for the hot water (not sure why I wasn’t told this at check in), however when this was switched on we still had no hot water for our stay. Also, until after the house keeping had come during our second day, we had no mugs for our kettle. Two pillows and one very thing blanket on a massive bed during winter, not sure why they wouldn’t just provide a duvet or another blanket during winter. The main issues we had though: 1. Free breakfast was offered however the hotel decided does not provide hot drinks and the only option is egg - not exactly a cooked to order breakfast as described. Also they decided to drill in the breakfast room throughout breakfast from around 8am until the end of breakfast. 2. They offer motorbike rental but insist you leave your passport with them, despite having your passport details from check in. DO NOT leave your passport with them, walk into the town and hire one from there - there is a great one 5 mins away for the same price. 3. Hotels.com offered free parking with the booking - the hotel would told us we could not use this but then continuously moved our bike around?

After the hustle and bussle of Hanoi it was lovely to spend two nights at the SONA RESORT and relax in the peaceful rural areal of Ninh Binh. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our room was on 2nd floor, overlooking a lovely garden and a nice pool on the other side. Room was clean, comfortable and a good size. We were grateful that the staff delivered and collected our bags to the room because of the different levels. Complementary tea/coffee/water was much appreciated after a day of hiking to Mua Cave Viewpoint and cycling to Trang An for a boat ride. Plus a nice swimming pool. Breakfast and dinner were good. It seems to be a brandnew accommodation, but overall very well operated. We really enjoyed our stay at the resort and would visit again.
P/s: By the way, Ninh Binh is stunning where the landscape is out of this world. You won't be disappointed.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
