H’mong Mountain Retreat a Extroardinary Experience

I stayed at the H’mong Mountain Retreat in September 2012. Out of all my accommodation and roamings right throughout Viet Nam this was the most extroardinary experience of my trip. It is a retreat, there is no wifi, ensuit, room service, mini bar, front desk, that is the joy of it all. It is remote, peaceful and stunningly beautiful. I had the entire retreat to myself and a cat. The view from my thatched hut was breathtaking I could not take my eyes away and it changed by the minute – brooding jungle clad mountains high above, the clouds rolling in and settling like feather dooners in the valleys, hillsides terraced with rice paddies then brilliant sun shine and it all changed again.

One morning I awoke to children talking it felt like they were at the bottom of my bed, they were under my stilt house, two small children with a buffalo were hearding it through the grass that grows on the embankments of the rice paddies. The rice was being harvested while I was there, I so felt privledged to sit on the edge of my balcony swinging my legs over the side to just sit and watch the families cut the rice by hand, thresh it in a wooden box and then carry it up the steep hill sides.

I walked the roads through the valleys and down into villages stopping along the way for sewing lessons by some of the local H’mong women, bought small bags off young girls, gave my lunch and my dinner away to small children and old women. I stopped and talked to everyone, sometimes I had company of a couple of H’mong women and surprisingly they had simple English they were charming and beautiful. The retreat itself is thoughfully laid out with a main stilt house where there are two bathrooms with river pebbles as a floor, an eating area, then five private thached huts in the paddy fields. Many pieces of wonderful and beautiful locally made pottery and craft placed in and around the retreat.

My thached hut which was on stilts in the paddy fields had a large bed that was very comfortable with a fully enclosed mosquito net, bamboo floors and a balcony with views to die for. A girl arrived in the morning to cook my breakfast, eggs, bread, banana bread and thick delicious Veitnamese coffee. If you are thinking of going to Sa pa spend at least one night here it is an unforgettable experience and most of all I like the fact that Pete the Australian who runs this retreat and Sa pa Rooms gives back to the community.

Booked this hotel for a different experience. Did not expect it to be so different. Driver from Lao Cai did not know how to get there. Cost extra money to be taken to the 6km’s to the retreat. On arrival, taken to the hut which is basically a bed with a mosquito net over the top, mud walls, bamboo everything else and a long rickety walk to the bathroom.

However, the view from the front porch was amazing. Just not sure the view was worth the money we paid for the hut. Unfortunately, we chose to not stay in such privative conditions and forfeited our monies paid and returned to SaPa Town and paid for a lot less primative room. Suggest only stay here if you are wanting a very rustic experience.

H Mong Mountain Retreat lack of maintenance

The location, views, architecture and decoration were incredibly beautiful. We liked the mountain hut and also the separate shower. However there is an absolute lack of maintenance and organisation, inexcusable for the price we paid. The bus driver that took us from train to Sapa said it was “paid by hotel” but actually the hotel (over)charged us for the ride.

When we arrived at the resort there were some people (not sure what or who they were) that did not speak English and were not exceptionally friendly that showed us our cabin. The entrance of the resort was full of litter. Afterwards these people were gone and there was no one to inform us. We were hungry and just started walking in search of food. A long walk with the most beautiful views I have seen in a long time – but no food. In the evening our Hmong hostess finally arrived. She was great, spoke very good English. The veggy dinner was great and in abundance. The toilet/shower was full of spiderwebs and we saw one cockroach.

The common area was in itself beautifully decorated but not cleaned. We were hungry after a small breakfast that was composed of air-filled bread with a little omelette and half an apple In summary, a great potential is nullified by a complete lack of organisation and maintenance. The lack of cleaning seems so easily resolvable… What a shame for such a wonderful place.
