This enchanting beach resort on a quiet hilltop, surrounded by lush greenery with panoramic views of the sea, will revive your spirit. The compound itself gleams with a Santorini-inspired blue and white palette, the soothing theme bringing a sense of romance. It is an idyllic beach resort, promising lazy afternoons and breezy evenings with stunning views.
It’s no surprise that the resort has stellar reviews on TripAdvisor and a Certificate of Excellence in the bag. With a focus on spa and wellness, it’s hard to imagine leaving the resort without a smile on your face. It also helps that guests are given the option of a complimentary 90-minute spa journey for every day of their stay. It begins with a relaxing session of Tai Chi (a low impact, slow exercise that encourages calm and peace), followed by an aromatic sauna session and a 50-minute massage of your choice. If that is too overwhelming, you could simply enjoy the carefree nature of the resort and explore the beauty of its natural surroundings.
The resort also offers a range of day tours that range from street food tours, bicycle tours or a trip to the Binh Chau Hot Springs. Definitely worth checking out during your trip, they’ll immerse you in the country’s vibrant culture.
How to Get There
Resort under new management. Lovely beach and pool area. Helpful and friendly staff and great accommodation. We book the resort independently on line and made our way from HCM City via fast ferry from central HCMC which took almost two hours then a taxi again taking 45 minutes. Best way to get to the resort is to ask the staff at the resort to arrange a pick up from the airport or some location or hotel were you are staying in HCM City. Taxi fare in the 160,000 dong range US$7.00
The best things were beatiful environment and spa with daily massage.
No nightlife! Only one coctail bar outside near pool.
Breakfast was poor.
The local village is about 2 km from resort. There is lot of local vietnamese style restaurants. Much better and cheaper food than in resort area.
Here you find pictures of the local restaurant and food. We recomend!
The resort could be fantastic. Rooms are lovely but tired. The pool is a good size and great layout but in need of some TLC (tiles missing, paint peeling etc).
Unfortunately, the restaurant was less than average and not cheap. It is in a great setting but the food was so unappetising that we ventured into town the following nights where it was much better and about a quarter of the price.
The spa was pleasant and we enjoyed the massages we had there. The staff were attentive and made you feel very welcome.
When we arrived, they couldn’t find our reservation and our special request regarding honeymoon was lost.
It was really hard to communicate with the staff since they hardly spoke any English.
Resort is not maintained (pool tiles broken, lounge chairs ripped apart, a/c loud, bed spread with huge holes).
Prices for lunch, dinner and laundry are so much higher than anywhere else in Vietnam (or even in Europe) so we went outside the resort for dinner (for example bbq for 550.000 VND for each person or New Year’s Eve gala diner for 1.850.000 VND).
Quality and amount of breakfast not really fitting for a 4 star hotel. Food was almost emptied out by 8:30am when it’s supposed to go until 10:00 am. There weren’t enough spoons, glasses, cups and so on.
Service staff wasn’t trained.
Our last massage appointment, which we specifically planned early enough since we wanted to go before checkout, wasn’t anywhere to be found so we didn’t have the last included massage.
Pool music starts at 6/7 am and can be rather disruptive when you have a room close to the pool.
Overall we got the impression that the resort was more for Vietnamese guests and not really for any other guests.
The resort is close to the beach and is nicely spread over the hill. We appreciated the massages included.
I’ve been coming here for years and the wheels have fallen off the wagon. Food has gone from bad to inedible, plugpoints in room don’t work, staff is clueless, a poor excuse of an expat Manager.
What strikes me the most is that this place has such crazy good potential that it’s a monumental waste.
I arrived during a heavy downpour and resort completely I equipped - buggies without plastic side protection, no cover near reception and worst of all had to walk through puddles and industrial waste to go to the bathroom - unforgivable. Also stop using petrol/ diesel buggies and get with the times....
