Tucked away on a hillside with the most stunning panoramic views in the area, Pu Luong Retreat provides a rural escape 4 hours drive from Hanoi. With stunning rice terrace fields, breathtaking mountain passes and traditional villages of ethnic minorities who still retain their unique cultural heritage and way of living, Pu Luong is a microcosm of Northern Vietnam.
The Pu Luong Region stretches from Mai Châu to Cuc Puong National Park. The region is relatively undiscovered, which makes it all the more special. Pu Luong offers trekking in the forest and along the rice terrace fields, cycling through the reserve and visiting many authentic small villages.
Accommodation consists of 9 comfortable bungalows, 1 traditional stilt house with 16 comfy beds, an open air restaurant with local cuisine, infinity pool, spa area and rock garden. The Infinity pool was formerly a pond for raising fish – fresh water is continuously piped in from a nearby stream in the mountains, and flows out from the base to the rice fields below. The pool offers a breathtaking view of mountain passes and endless rice terrace fields. The bar next to the pool is a great spot for a sundowner.
Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
Kind regards, Carol

It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
Kind regards, John

Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
