Overview

Castaway-style retreat in a secluded bay home to 35 villas with plunge pools and private butlers

The Look

Cradled in a hidden bay on a peninsula that curls into the South China Sea, An Lam Ninh Van Bay Villas makes for a paradisiacal escape. Though you’re just up the coast from bustling Nha Trang, the lush forests and jade-green mountain rising around the luxe villas make you feel a world away. You arrive James Bond–style via the resort’s speedboat and are greeted by your personal butler, who escorts you to one of 35 private villas. While a host of outdoor activities await — hiking, mountain biking, scuba diving — the private plunge pools and exquisite in-room dining could easily keep you occupied for the entirety of your stay.

Bed and Bath

Above the forest canopy are the elevated Hill Rock Villas which feature woven bamboo roofs, polished timber frames, a private plunge pool and a three-story layout that opens up to tree-filtered ocean views. Lining the crescent bay and shimmering lagoon are the Beach and Lagoon Villas, all of which have airy indoor-outdoor floor plans and sprawling decks with their own small pools.

Beyond

The resort places a premium on cuisine and the oceanfront restaurant sets the bar high. The menu is a fusion of East and West, from savory Spanish omelets and jamón for breakfast to sizzling Nha Trang lobster tails for an atmospheric candlelit dinner. Oenophiles can go to tastings in a wine tower set high above the forest canopy and overlooking the bay. Need to burn off a few of those calories? Take to the on-site hiking trails, the gym or the yoga pavilion. Or arrange to visit local villages and markets, go scuba diving, mountain biking or kayaking, or explore the countryside via motorcycle. Otherwise, just unwind in the in-house library or shoot some pool in the chill-out lounge.

In the Area

Explore the surrounding mountains and tropical forest by bike or on foot, or sign up for the resort’s countryside tours of Ninh Van Bay. Sail a catamaran or go windsurfing, kayaking or scuba-diving – there’s an endless choice of water sports. Nha Trang offers a host of bars and clubs, including Sailing Club Nha Trang, Guava and the Louisiana Brewhouse; the perfect nighttime tonic to daytime on the beach. There’s even a Russian-owned ice bar. Built in the 8th century, the Hindu-influenced Cham Towers were constructed by the Cham people in honor of the goddess Yan Po Nagar.

A slice of paradise

Had the most luxurious holiday in my 8 years of travelling life. I didn't even realise that I was in Vietnam, due to the secluded location of L'Alya Ninh Van Bay, away from the hustle and bustle that's Vietnam! There's direct flight to Nha Trang from Kuala Lumpur on Air Asia, then it's about an hour's drive north on resort's limousine van. After that, a 20-minute speedboat trip to L'Alya from its welcome lounge. Everything is so well taken care of, with friendly staff from the minute we arrived. Its total rest and relaxation here, with 24/7 complimentary butler. If I could stay longer here, I definitely would, and leave real world stress behind! I loved to be able to take on any activity planned by the resort, or I could just while away my time and not do anything at all, and nobody would bother me.

Paradise

At check in you answer a short questionnaire about your preferences and take a short boat trip to the resort. You are met by your butler and your stay is tailored for you. The resort is beautiful and the staff wonderful. Our three storey villa with private pool was in the woods with nature all around us and a very short walk to the beach, bar and restaurant. It was so peaceful and we wanted stay much longer.

Amazing

The team is super attentive and helps and cares about every guest. It was really superb stay on this island. The buttler service, the waiters, the managment which is really something of the best I ever experienced. The villa was at beachfront with privacy, I never had before. I can only say positive things, maybe the only disadavantage is, it's only possible to go to NhaTrang during the day by boat, in the evening it would cost 250$, which is of course too expensive. Thank you to all that you made our stay unforgetable.
