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
I will do my best to come back to Pilgrimage Village, bring my family and refer friends. Everything was at the best level of service and quality. My room was commodious and beautiful. I took advantage of daily yoga and tai chi classes. The breakfast, included in my stay is extensive and good. Dinners are in a high-ceilinged room with traditional carved pillars and beams and laterite stone walls - very beautiful. The serving staff in the restaurants were attentive, friendly end,y and thoughtful.
I used the spa pool for swimming laps.
The manager, Cristy anticipated so many of my transport and travel needs.
The excellent security staff had a bicycle waiting for me early every morning for my journey to the Buddhist temple.
I have only good things to say about Pilgrimage Village!
this is one exceptional hotel in a stunning location set in beautiful grounds. every single member of staff were courteous & went out of their way to be of help. my wife & i were looked after by Noa who was outstanding in every way & kept checking on us to make sure all was ok. considering the fact that she had only been there for a few weeks, she was a testament to the hotels excellent staff selection procedure & their training. our villa overlooking the pond & backing the spa was very comfortable & in a perfect location. the breakfast was excellent too. the ladies at the front desk were all very helpful & went out of their way with every request. i would also particularly like to thank the lady who escorted my wife to the pharmacy to help translate & also the gentleman at the desk opposite the reception who was full of stories & excellent ideas especially about places to visit.
this really is a very well run hotel that i would recommend with no reservations at all & would love to visit again
We LOVED this hotel! The grounds are so lush, and well maintained. All staff are so polite, friendly and helpful! The adults' pool is fabulous, and it feels like a good design for swimming.(There's another pool for younger children, who are not confident swimmers). And as for the pool bar - so cool to swim to the bar and have cocktail in the pool! Breakfast was good, with different variations available every day. Our room had a terrace with lounger and chairs. We used the mosquito deterrent provided, but would still recommend wearing insect repellent. There's a shuttle provided to get to Hue city centre. Great hotel!
Rooms were very spacious and in "cabins" spread out throughout the facility. We were upgraded to a honeymoon suite (not sure why since we had been married over 49 years), but we did not question the move. Very nice buffet. The afternoon "tea" was extensive and obviated the need for a dinner. A pleasant and peaceful stay.
Unbelievable welcome from Christy upon check in, we felt like royalty arriving here. Every single staff member you meet is polite. We were upgraded to a Bungalow as there was a large conference coming in for the night and Christy decided we would be more comfortable in a quieter area of the resort. How lucky were we...The Bungalow accomodation was amazing, we were given room 149 and we felt like we were in a treehouse. The room is spacious with a very large king size bed, lounge area and Huge huge bathroom. Resort has two pools, the slope pool and the peanut pool. We liked both but more staff were in attendance around the slope pool. Breakfast is very fresh with a nice variety of foods.We hardly left the resort as this place was so peaceful and relaxing.
The Spa is incredible, my husband and I had an Indian head massage each, a back massage and a facial and both of us received a complimentary 30 minutes foot/calf massage. Please visit Ms Phoung in the spa reception, she makes you feel so welcome and relaxed before your treatment. Special mention also to Ms Trang for the best massages. Hotel is only a short distance from town and some of the tombs are close by. We ate a lot here in the resorts restaurants, food is very nice With very good pricing. We highly recommend you staying here in this relaxing resort rather than in the busy town. Thank you again Christy for your first class hospitality.
