This gorgeous ecolodge is tucked into the remote hills of northern Vietnam, about a 4-hour drive from Hanoi. It’s set in the midst of the Pu Luong Nature Reserve.
Go on scenic hikes through the rice terrace mountains. You can visit villages of the Muong and Thai ethnic minorities right on the grounds of the reserve. It’s also possible to explore the reserve on a borrowed bike. Explore the nearby Cham River on a boating tour with a local fisherman. At the river, you can also see the wooden water wheels that used to be an important part of native agriculture.
Pu Luong makes the most out of its surroundings. Communal areas have exposed beams, high ceilings, and excellent views. The lodge uses sustainable energy and employs locals. The infinity pool pipes in water from the surrounding mountains.
There’s a small spa on the grounds that comes with a view of the fish pond. The restaurant has 40 seats and offers a menu of Western, Thai, and other Asian cuisines. Help yourself to the breakfast buffet. Outside the main dining area, you can warm yourself at the campfire in the evening.
The lodge offers individual bungalows and one larger guest house on stilts. These are authentic buildings that have been preserved by the lodge. All of the accommodations come with simple comforts like slippers and Wi-Fi.
Bungalows have terraces, and a few come with outdoor bathtubs. Each bungalow has its own ensuite bathroom. Bungalows have tea and coffee making facilities.
The main house sleeps 16, with beds arranged in a communal area. All of the beds have their own curtains. The building comes with a large, multi-sink bathroom that overlooks the rolling mountainsides.
