The magical atmosphere is incredible...the view...oh my god..breathtaking.. A unique place were i spent 3 days and it was not enough.

I came here a few years ago but actually forgot the name of the place. My partner and I had been to a few different countries together but mostly cityscape places so Vietnam was the first rural country we were visiting. Sa Pa looked amazing and we wanted it to be as authentic as possible so found these lovely huts... More

Our stay at Hmong Mountain Retreat was amazing. The view and getting to know the Hmong people is worth everything. There was breakfast provided daily, a simple fare of eggs, toast and tomato sauce, coffee or tea. Some might complain about this, but we were satisfied - it was simple but sufficient. Lunch or Dinner at the Retreat is available... More

Advice: - Ensure you don't pay more than 60dong to get from the train to Sapa - Hmong Mountain retreat didn't tell us to go to Sapa Rooms to check in, right next to the maker. They will then take you to the huts - bring a jumper and raincoat if going in Dec Really helpful staff and lovely rooms... More

You will never forget days and nights at Hmong Mountain Retreat: You will sleep ABOVE rice paddys in a hut made of clay and bamboo in which you find a good, broad bed with warm blankets and a mosquito net and one light bulb, that's all.

Great place to stay if you want to be a bit off the beaten track / encounter a little peace and quiet...heads up just bring a headlamp! Dark at night and no bathrooms in room.

Hmong mountain retreat is beautiful. We spent a beautiful night and day with friends. We met other travellers over the feasting dinner and breakfast! Do not expect 5 star service - you help your self to the fridge, get acquainted with the facilities and just sit back and admire the view. I recommend purchasing a bottle (or 2 or 3)... More

Although expensive the view is worth a million dollars from this resort. If you go for the view then you'll have a good time but expect anything else and you'll be disappointed.

All of the images are true, Hmong mountain retreat is a really beautiful place and deeply rooted in a eco-conception of staying in Sapa. You sleep in a palafitte with walls made of earth and roof made of leaves, though very comfortable, the place is not silent, you're in the middle of nature and there are animals like frogs.
