Gorgeous Infinity Pool on Vietnamese Mountain Looks Like It’s Sitting on Clouds

Infinity Pool by Topas Ecolodge

Positioned on a hilltop in the mountains of Hoang Lien National Park is the Topas Ecolodge, an eco-conscious escape that’s about five hours away from Hanoi. The locale comprises 33 bungalows that each offer rustic interior decor and private balconies for gorgeous views of the surrounding hillsides and valleys below.

Topas Ecolodge provides a different experience than your standard hotel. They are concerned with their ecological footprint, and they employ minority tribe members from the nearby Thanh Kim and Thanh Phu villages. “We call ourselves a ‘lodge’ because we lack some of the basic features and services of a standard hotel,” they explain. “Our bungalows have no TV and no internet connection, enabling guests to completely escape from everyday life and immerse with nature.”

The distinct lack of technology allows you to immerse yourself fully in the surroundings—many of which you can admire from the breathtaking infinity pool. Added in 2017, the basin provides a picturesque peek down onto the Muong Hoa Valley. There, you’ll see layers of rice terraces and workers attending to their crops. The valley occasionally fills with fog, which makes the entire soaking experience seem like something out of a dream.

If you do find time to leave the pool, Topas Ecolodge has other amenities to indulge in. There is a spa on site where you can have a massage and herbal bath as well as places to go hiking and cycling. Additionally, there is a restaurant that features Vietnamese dishes with a European twist.

With its stunning location and dedication to eco-friendly tourism, it’s no wonder that the Topas Ecolodge has been named a Unique Lodge of the World by National Geographic.

The Topas Ecolodge is an eco-friendly getaway in Northern Vietnam.

Boasting gorgeous views from a mountaintop, they look even better from their infinity pool.
