Hanoi & The North Accommodation
Lan Ha Bay Cruise – Heritage Ginger
Your luxurious floating home, Ginger, sets sail around midday for the jaw dropping majesty of Halong Bay, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Spend one night on board this exclusive and stylish new vessel and relax surrounded by life’s ultimate luxuries.
Topas Eco Lodge, Sapa, Vietnam
Located deep in the spectacular Sapa Valley, about 45 minutes from Sapa town, this rural eco lodge commands breath-taking views of the surrounding valleys covered with terraced rice fields, and is the perfect place to base yourself and explore this beautiful region of Northern Vietnam.
Sofitel Legend Metropole, Hanoi
The Sofitel Legend Metropole has been an institution on the Hanoi hotel scene since its inception in 1901. With its elegant colonial style architecture and ideal location, just one block away from Hoan Kiem Lake in the heart of Hanoi, this is deservedly one of Hanoi's most popular hotels.
Tam Coc Gardens, Ninh Binh
This charming boutique hotel has beautiful setting in the middle of rice paddies, surrounded by waterways and spectacular limestone karst scenery, it is remote and beautiful and nearby Tam Coc town is just 10 minutes’ drive away. Just one and a half hours south of Hanoi but a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city, we would urge anyone looking for a few days to discover some of Vietnam’s most understated, but beautiful scenery to visit Ninh Binh Province. It is the perfect retreat for a few days chill out in the midst of your Vietnam journey and guests can drive to Halong Bay from here, making it an easy addition between Hanoi and Halong Bay.
Emeralda Resort Ninh Binh, Vietnam
Emeralda is a luxury retreat located in the heart of Ninh Binh and the perfect base from which to explore the region. We would recommend spending at least 2 nights here to fully explore this stunning region with day one visiting an amazing series of caves and temples called Dich Long Cave and Pagoda, you’ll then row, by traditional sampan, through the picturesque scenery of Van Long. Your second day (if you have time) can be spent cycling through sleepy villages, past rice fields – all surrounded by majestic limestone mountains – it is simply stunning.
Apricot Hotel Hanoi
Apricot Hotel offers a charming boutique option in the centre of Hanoi. Located across the street from Hoan Kiem Lake and its island pagoda, a few minutes south of the Old Quarter with its labyrinth alleys and street food stalls, and just east of the boulevards of the French Quarter its location couldn’t be better - no matter what part of Hanoi you want to explore, almost all of it is within easy walking distance.
Halong Bay Cruise, Vietnam
There are not many places in the world that have been recognised twice by UNESCO but Halong Bay is one and therefore understandably commands more of your time. Most visitors allocate one night but this is almost to undermine its unique place in the world and we urge you to stay longer in a place that really does deserve your attention.
