How to Get There
Love this place, got married here 10 years ago, came back for our anniversary. Staff are fantastic, it’s the best place for a holiday. It’s right on the beach,close to everything. Loved all the restaurants and places to eat.
I was not going to bother reviewing the Ana Mandara at all this time but on a subjective level I feel compelled to mention the staff.
They are polite friendly and ever helpful remembering your name and nothing is too much trouble for them although English can be a challenge with some. The staff are what keeps the Ana Mandara going.
The food is also very good. Better in the Pavillion than at the Ana Beach House where there is some confusion as to what menu they are using.
Sadly like many hotels/resorts breakfast time, as it is part of the "package", you see many in the dining room.
When it comes to an evening meal it is deserted.
The meals and food quality are better than what you can find at many of the so called "hole in the wall" restaurants that seem to get good reviews and at not much extra when you take into account drinks in Nha Trang.
As an example the eighth best restaurant, as listed by traveller ranking in Nha Trang at the time is little more than a little hole dirty and unkempt down an alley.
On an objective level little or nothing has been done with the Ana Mandara and it is like a grand old lady slowly waiting to die. The owners, while charging some of the highest rates possible, have invested nothing back into the facilities at all. The Manager Michael was quite frank about the eventual demise of the resort and its stay of execution for perhaps another five years. If the owners do not invest some money in the facilities it won't have to be demolished it will just fall down.
The rooms along with the bathrooms are so old and used that it is impossible to keep them really clean. There are cracks and gaps and mold all over various things and signs of much use with no maintenance.
The lack of the private beach status held by the Ana Mandara is also of concern as that right has been removed from the Ana Mandara as the Nha Trang Authorities reclaim the beach front.
You now have a continual flow of people at all hours moving past the beach front rooms. Let me tell you the Chinese have no conception of volume!
The security of our room was always a concern as the door was secured by a lock and ineffective chain only.
We had people using our loungers right in front of our room for photo ops and they managed to break rotten slats on one of our loungers. Whatever security is provided was invisible.
So thank you to the staff you make the unbearable bearable!
To the Management we will not be back because it is no longer 5 stars or deserving of the Six Senses Logo and will not be here long before it meets the bulldozers.
Only beachside resort on the main stretch of beach in Nha Trang. All the others are high rise hotels across the street. Great service, very private... great bungalows... the only place to stay in Nha Trang... will cost more but worth it!!
Needed a respite from the hot and humid Saigon so we booked 2 nights here due to it's location and access to the beach. The place was also the only five stars hotel about 10 years ago when we were here. Nha Trang is different now but Ana Mandara hasn't changed much, for the good and bad I suppose. Check in was great, reception team was courteous, had a drink for us while waiting, asked us about our trip. We told them it was for our anniversary and they were very happy for us, though in most five stars hotel usually I'd get a note, voicemail, a drink, a snack or something but I guess that's not really important. We booked a Jr. Suite which gave us direct beach access from our door, the reception team member came and showed us all the various things in the room - that was nice. The room had a large bed with mosquito net, love the various scented incense and mosquito deterrent. The outside rainshower was the best thing about the bathroom, had a tub, toilet, shower and various amenities. The room was a little bit outdated but still has its' charms. The latch lock to the outdoor shower from the bathroom however was broken and therefore was useless. Though the outdoor shower is only accessible from the inside ( you'd have to climb over a 3.5m fence ) so we were OK with it. The outside patio had a nice day bed and table and chairs, we made use of this just sitting out there enjoying the ocean waves. It is great for having a drink or a snack while enjoying the ocean. It also had two lounge chairs and the staff did well to keep it with fresh linen. The path walks right out to the beach (no longer private ) in a more secluded section away from the mass of people. The security team is pretty vigilant so we felt pretty safe, the hotel also offered bananas and a fresh lemongrass scented cold towel, that was nice.
Since the beach is no longer private there were a couple times when strangers would come by our steps and just lounge around, a group of tourists used the handrail as a clothes hanger ( yuck ) and unfortunately I didn't see any security personnel this time.
Breakfast on the first day was good, had a nice lunch at the Ana Beach house on the other side of the resort. Everyone was fantastic. I didn't want a large dinner so skipped the buffet but had dinner at the Pavilion, good selection and a decent price for a resort. Only bad thing was I was charged for still water (house water), not carbonated or anything, seriously? I've been to the Conrad, Four Seasons, W hotels, I don't think they've ever charged me for house water. Breakfast on Saturday was a little bit slower, came out at 6:30 and most of it wasn't ready including drinks.
Check out was a breeze, overall we did enjoy our stay. Definitely a good location if you want to be centrally located but wants to avoid the unruly tourists that seems to have lost all their manners and are congregated across the splattering of hotels on the other side of the street. Could've been 5* but was more like 4.5. Kudos to all the staff, everyone we met was happy and fantastic.
Occasionally we go there to enjoy a lunch. This time we had to wait relatively long time despite very few customer, we thought. All of a sudden 40 tourists of the noisy arrived, but the only stayed there short time, as they were served a coffee sua/da. 15 minutes later another similar group arrived so it was a noisy lunch. I had a Anamandara Burger medium, which looked very good, however, I believe it was more than well done, I could hardly cut the meat and majority of it was like chewing on leather - and that for usd 12 !!
