Hmong Mountain Retreat
Now that I’ve returned from Sapa and managed a couple days aback at work, plus the big Friday Night on the Terrace party at the Press Club, I wanted to make a mention of Hmong Mountain Retreat. This is where we celebrated my friend Pete’s 40th birthday. It was such a lovely party and absolutely beautiful surroundings, I’m still thinking about it.
And that’s just the kind of place Hmong Mountain Retreat is…the beauty and peacefulness you feel when you are there stays with you even after you’ve left. Perhaps that’s the whimsical details lovingly placed throughout the retreat. Perhaps its the terrific chef’s who cook with super fresh foods. Perhaps it’s the way the retreat lives in harmony with the surrounding nature, which just soaks you up and takes hold of you. Or it could be the dainty little fireflies which danced through the night (I still can’t get over the fireflies. Only the third time in my life to see them and I am simply in awe.)
Whatever features have caught me, l can’t wait to escape Hanoi again and visit Sapa and refresh and refill at Hmong Mountain Retreat.
