The jungle-clad grounds of this restorative retreat near the ancient city of Hue are studded with antiquated garden houses topped with shaggy palm thatch, each roof beautifully offset by a green tapestry of vine-covered walls. A meandering path navigates between rustic and Zen, and leads through to a vast but minimalist spa village set amid lotus-filled ponds. Communal areas fuse history and nature within ancient pillared pavilions surrounded by the lush gardens.
Bed and Bath
Romantically lit guestrooms combine exposed brickwork, dappled marble flooring and jungle views from floor-to-ceiling windows. Oversize beds cloaked in muslin give onto wraparound balconies, and the sleek, minimalist bathrooms come with huge bathtubs and are fully loaded with tropical products. Honeymoon pool villas have alfresco showers and poolside kitchens.
The resort’s star attraction is the thatch-roofed Vedana Spa, which has open-air treatment and yoga pavilions. It’s totally encompassed by verdant foliage and offers treatments made from herbs from the garden or bought fresh at the local market. A close second is the irresistably authentic Junrei restaurant, which offers Vietnamese-fusion cuisine (try the Hue specialities) and awesome views from the veranda. For sunset cocktails, the poolside piano bar Slope serves up a pretty mean mimosa.
In the Area
A 15-minute cab ride takes you to Vietnam’s ancient capital, Hue, where days can be filled exploring imperial ruins, pagodas, the walled city and crafts shops. Romantic evenings unfold with swoon-inducing sunsets and decadent dinner cruises on the gorgeous Perfume River. Be warned, though: This city sleeps early. Fortunately, your resort has the most beautiful pool bar for a late night tipple
How to Get There
Beautiful resort- and it is a resort, so not really a VietnAmese experience! Amazing room- very large with direct pool access and very quiet, beautifully kept grounds. Lovely just to wander round. Breakfast copious and varied. Staff delightful. Only problem: it poured with rain incessantly for24 hours on our day ‘off’! So could not use the pools????. restaurant pretty good too despite westernisation and ‘ all you can eat buffet’. Loved it here.
This was my second stop for my Vietnam trip, after a delayed flight and no grab in the city the taxi charged 300,000 vnd to the hotel ... and it was raining cats and dogs while we were staying so couldn't enjoy anything in the hotel and nothing around the hotel ... so the shuttle service provided was what we used to go to the center .
Breakfast was grand and nice ...
Room lighting very dark ... so even with all the lights on it felt gloomy ... and during our stay I had problem with bathroom sink ... the water used to get clogged ...
This was second stop on our tour of Vietnam. Hotel was a real treat and much better than we had expected. Had two rooms one twin for kids and one double, they were not full so upgraded us to honeymoon suites overlooking the most amazing outdoor pool. Great rooms, spa was very good, breakfast in lovely restaurant with small lake around and dinner in separate very atmospheric room...again great choice and great food. We did buffet first night and A'La Carte second. Defiantly come back if here again.
