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
Excellent Hotel Anantara never fail to deliver This is a little gem We loved our holiday here would return in a flash. The staff so warm, friendly and courteous everyone of them couldn't do enough to ensure a pleasant and relaxing stay.
My wife and I stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks in November. We were greeted by Kurt, Tri and Thuy, our guest relations manager. To our surprise and great delight, we were upgraded to a 2 roomed villa which was immaculate. The villa had all we needed - a very large garden with a private pool and sturdily constructed gazebo. The resort is only a short walk from the very long shopping street.
What really made our holiday, however, was the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff from the most senior to the most junior. We don't know all the names and some could not speak English but would particularly like to thank Kurt and Tri for their help on our rather hurried departure (my fault, I thought we had another day left), Thuy, Lieu, Chin, My and Ahn. The last 5 always had time for a chat at breakfast and whenever we met them during the day. Also we must not forget our pool man and our always smiling gardener. Thank you all for a lovely holiday.
I came here with my girlfriend for her birthday and she totally love it. She couldn’t stop taking a photo from the room to the sea. Our dinner was enjoyable and delicious.
I will definitely comeback again.
The perfect place for relaxing time. Amazing view, comfortable room, friendly and really professional staff who make my stay more pleasant.
Next time, I will back to enjoy the holiday here with my family.
Thank you very much for your best service.
The service is ok, some facilities in room need to be improved.
The toilet in twin room has no door, so uncomfortable for any non-couple travelers.
Breakfast is poor as well, nothing much to eat, Phở is bad soup here.
