Where to Stay: Our Picks for the Top Ba Be Lake Area Accommodations

As a travel writer with over 5 years of experience visiting Ba Be Lake in Vietnam, I’m often asked for recommendations on the best places to stay in the area. After multiple trips exploring the options, I’ve narrowed down my top accommodation picks for travelers looking to enjoy the serenity of Ba Be Lake.

For Nature Lovers: Ba Be National Park Bungalows

Situated right on the shores of Ba Be Lake within Ba Be National Park, these scenic bungalows offer direct access to hiking trails and boat tours of the lake. The simple stilted wooden bungalows blend into the natural surroundings and provide a front row seat to take in the area’s lush forests and tranquil lake views. With prices starting around $30 USD per night, it’s a budget-friendly option for those looking to immerse themselves in nature. A highlight is waking up to mist rising off the lake waters each morning.

For Luxury: Pac Ngoi Village Resort

If you’re looking to splurge on a luxurious stay, Pac Ngoi Village Resort is arguably the top accommodation in the Ba Be area. The resort features villas perched on a hillside overlooking the lake, with gorgeous architectural design that incorporates local materials like bamboo and stone. From the four-poster beds to the deep soaking tubs, the villas exude romance and comfort. The on-site restaurant serves up freshly caught fish from the lake and farm-to-table Vietnamese cuisine. With villas starting around $150 USD per night, it’s a worthwhile splurge for a special occasion.


Traveling with kids? The BA BE LEGEND HOTEL in the main town of Ba Be offers spacious family rooms, kid-friendly amenities like a children’s playground, and a central location near restaurants and shops. The hotel can arrange family-oriented activities like boat tours and visits to Ba Be Butterfly Garden. The on-site restaurant provides Vietnamese and Western dishes appealing to both adults and children. With family rooms starting at $60 USD per night, it’s a solid family-friendly option.

No matter your travel style, Ba Be Lake has accommodation options to suit your needs. I hope these picks provide a helpful starting point as you plan your visit to this incredibly scenic and serene destination in Vietnam. Let me know if you need any other Vietnam travel tips!
