Right on the beach, this luxe spa resort, more than 120 miles from Ho Chi Minh City, gives guests access to Mui Ne’s star attraction: its palm-fringed sugar sands lapped by the South China Sea. It’s hard to believe this pristine coastal stretch went largely unnoticed until 1995, when scientists announced that this would be the only spot in the country to see a full solar eclipse. The resort spills out from a central lagoon and a sleek slate-gray pool flanked by loungers and a swim-up bar. It’s all about laid-back lounging here, whether that means indulging in a massage at the intimate spa or soaking up the sunset views from one of the four on-site restaurants.
Bed and Bath
The 89 guestrooms are minimalist and modern, with bright splashes of blue and orange. Deluxe Rooms have balconies; Villas offer more space, plus private pools (great for couples and honeymooners). All come with slate-tiled bathrooms and large stone soaking tubs, as well as outdoor space to soak up south Vietnam’s rays.
There’s more to do than just relax, although that’s often the main agenda item of the day. The resort’s top-notch staff can arrange a wild afternoon of kitesurfing, or hiking on Ta Ku Mountain. Or head down to the fishing village and see the vendors’ fresh catch (some of which you might taste later at L’Anmien, the resort’s signature Vietnamese restaurant, headed by Alain Ducasse–trained chef Alain Nguyen). But back to relaxing: At the Anantara Spa, choose the 60-minute synchronized massage, where two therapists at the same time work out all your kinks.
How to Get There
Stayed here for our birthdays. First in the main building which had a very nice view from the balcony over the property and beach. Then to a cabin with pool. Both very clean and well stocked with everything you would need. The fresh fish in the restaurant was very nice too. We traveled late in the season so not too busy and very relaxing. Spa treatment was good too. If you like a place to relax this is it.Would like to come back some time again.
I would rate this as one of our best resort stays thus far, and we have done quite a few over the years. The villa duplex was quite good for our family (and extended) of 6 including a 4 year old, but the highlight was the staff and the way they ensured our stay was nothing short of awesome. Cannot single out any one but a loud shout out to the restaurant and front office, not to mention the others (the maintenance crew) who were splendid. Cannot fault a single thing TBH. Would love to come back once again. Fingers crossed.
I have stayed here twice with my girlfriend and so far they havent dissapointed us. We always book the beach villa and its perfect. The villa is awesome and the resort is gorgeous and the staff are amazing. The only issue I see is getting here takes about four hours by car and theres no other way. But for us its a perfect getaway resort.
Just arrived home after spending 9 nights in this hotel, only have positive comments.
Staff, all of the staff had the time of day to interact with you to many to include in this review, Kurt you have a good team nothing to much trouble for them to do.
Room, we had a ocean view suite, big room nice amenities all ways kept spotless.
Position, can't fault the position nice beach very long, in the middle for bars and restaurants.
Overall, good relaxing holiday, made even better buy the staff, will be happy to return.

Though we stayed there for one night only, we were completely amazed by the friendliness and consideration of the staff. The pool view is nice, food is excellent. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to come back sometimes.
