Panhou Retreat

Spirit of a Legend

Panhou is derived from the name of Ban Ho – a God sent from heaven to help Binh Vuong King protect our land and the Dzao people from invaders.

After the victory, Ban Ho was granted marriage to the King’s daughter and became the next King (Ban Vuong King). Then, they had 12 children (6 boys & 6 girls), and their children became the ancestors of the 12 branches of the Dzao people.

Ban Vuong King is known for his rustic lifestyle. He greatly contributed to laying the foundation and nourishing Dzao culture.

Today, Panhou Retreat carries on the King’s spirit by contributing to preserving nature, honoring local culture, and supporting the local economy.

Panhou Retreat was born from a fate. In 2004, Mr. Michele, Ms. Phuong – 2 founders of Panhou Retreat passed through Hoang Su Phi land and stopped at Thong Nguyen to rest. They were conquered by the terrain and landscape here so they decided to take a break. intend to invest in building a resort in here. Hardly anyone can imagine that there is an oasis rising up in the midst of majestic mountains and forests. Panhou Retreat is truly an “oasis” in the heart of Hoang Su Phi where you open your eyes, you will see mother nature patting you.

Ha Giang is a land with bold cultural imprints of the highland ethnic people. Therefore, Panhou Retreat want to become a cultural destination associated with nature for tourists. It is also the reason that each brick and each decorative motif are boldly Daoist.
