Overlooking Lang Co Bay, an unspoiled stretch of mountainous coastline in central Vietnam, the Angsana’s extravagant architecture is a bit of an opinion splitter. Big and brash, the sprawling resort is home to 223 guestrooms surrounding an epic 980-foot freshwater swimming pool. Still, the stylish interiors impressively marry contemporary modernism, five-star comfort and just the right balance of traditional Vietnamese decorative touches, such as the water puppet pool in the main lobby and the fabulously flamboyant Rice Bowl, where dining pods are constructed from giant shrimp baskets.
Bed and Bath
Stylish white-on-wood guestrooms take on a more elegant theme. Natural fabrics and swish furnishings are complemented by beautiful art and fretwork with splashes of tangerine silk and lacquerwork. Boutique bathrooms have his-and-hers sinks (and products) and a suitably huge shower and tub. Premier Rooms and Suites come with a handy in-room kitchen (you can have it stocked before you arrive) and a small infinity pool.
The phrase “to infinity and beyond” fits this resort perfectly: An awesome 980-foot pool meanders through the grounds. There are four restaurants and bars, including the Upper Deck for cocktails and views of the South China Sea, and the Rice Bowl for delectable Vietnamese fusion food. There are plenty of activities on offer, from jet-ski rides, paddleboarding and snorkeling at the water sports center, to Vietnamese tea brewing at the resort’s handicrafts center, to a round of golf at the Nick Faldo–designed course. Or you can indulge in a treatment at the spa, where native flowers and fruits are used in the products.
In the Area
The Angsana Lang Co sits smack bang in the middle of one of the most untouched and picturesque — and least-known — provinces in Vietnam. Here you can trek through jungle-clad mountains to discover iridescent black lagoons reflecting stilt houses and old-fashioned oyster farms, or stumble upon a floating restaurant deep within the mangroves. If you tire of being a pioneer, the temples and tombs of Hue, the Champa ruins of My Son and the colonial shopping hot spot of Hoi An are just a daytrip away. Closer to home, explorers and adrenaline junkies can get their fix by exploring Lang Co by mountain bike, ATV or guided trek. Closer still: Hop aboard the hotel’s riverboat for cocktails at the neighboring Banyan Tree Lang Co‘s eclectic Thu Quan library bar.
How to Get There
I stayed at languna park home actually, which is in the same complex with this angsana hotel. First experience was very bad when we checked in late at about 11pm and the receptionist at angsana who checked in for us kept saying she had no idea about my booking as well as anything else! And told me to complain to the villa receptionist the day after that for any mistake because she just did this for them as the favor! For me it's quite disappointing and unprofessional
I wish there were many shuttles going downtown and I wish the breakfast menu were more diversified. The breakfast menu didn't agree with me. But thank you very much for sending me a free shuttle to the airport.
We stayed here for 5 nights recently. The location, grounds and rooms are amazing. We had a pool villa with beach view and it was really beautiful. However even though we have already paid a lot to stay here, I thought things at the hotel were really really expensive (which is disappointing when you know Vietnam is soooo cheap). Things like AUD$5 to wash a single t-shirt for you, babysitting was USD$10 per hour per child (ridiculous when your children aren’t babies), always having to pay for water at dinner and being charged so much for golf, including club hire, buggy and tipping the caddies (our boys shared one set of hire clubs and they even tried to charge us for an extra empty bag to put some of the clubs in - luckily they took it off when we asked!). Even though you get water in your room, we ended up going to the local mini mart in the hotel and buying bottled water there instead of being offered the expensive Italian mineral water in the restaurants (20,000 dong vs 180,000 dong!). I know that sounds petty but I just felt some things were way too expensive when you are already paying so much. But generally it was a great place. Beautiful setting, amazing rooms and a great golf course. Remember though that the resort is quite isolated so I wouldn’t base yourself here to see other parts of Vietnam. Rather it is a place to stay put in and relax in without going anywhere else!
Great place to relax. Beautiful beach setting. So much to do and see. The tourism industry is just beginning here and this is reflected in some areas such as customer service, communication and some facilities. Though it did not have a huge impact on our stay as we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Would definitely recommend.
The pools in our room and for public are great. Only for the public one there were no tiles covering the edges so me and my kids get minor cuts while we played the water polo.
Angsana has a lot of daily activities and we never get bored during our 4-day stay. We love the dessert class and iced-tea making in marketplace and Saffron. Morning Yoga class in the pavillion is my favourite.
All staff are helpful and friendly. The beach is also very nice. We will visit again definitely.
