Vietnam's Topas Ecolodge named as unique lodge of the world

National Geographic has named Vietnam’s Topas Ecolodge on its list of unique lodges around the world.

It is the first resort from Vietnam and the fifth resort in Asia to be included in the list, including Sukau Rainforest Lodge in Malaysia and Three Camel Lodge in Mongolia.

Earlier, National Geographic also named Topas Ecolodge top of its list of “21 places to stay if you care about the planet”.

According to National Geographic, these lodges have unique designs and architecture with creative solutions and wonderful food. They are located in spectacular areas.

High on a hilltop outside Sa Pa in north Vietnam, Topas Ecolodge is an amazing mountain hideaway.

It opened in 2005 with a vision of providing accommodation for tourists to explore the area based on the principles of sustainability. Its 25 mountain lodges are all built like rustic chalets and are made from local white granite.

This is not your ordinary hotel however, there are no televisions, swimming pools or standard travel facilities. The lodge is often impacted by break downs in power supply and water shortages, but it’s all part of the experience.

With hidden trails to explore and breathtaking scenery you will truly feel on top of the world at this secret gem.

As one of the longest-running and most philanthropic lodges in the region, Topas Ecolodge has nurtured strong relationships with the local hill tribes and with each passing year, the lodge conceives new ways to give back to these communities that are so integral to their operation./.
