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.

Amazing, restful holiday

Was here for 3 days and 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The staff was really friendly and the view and food was superb. Absolutely would recommend to all travelers who are looking for a nice Vietnamese experience.

Beautiful views, perfect location!

We went for a weekend and it was the perfect amount of relaxation and serenity we needed!

It's about an hour car ride and 25 minute boat ride away from the airport. Once you get to the island you are welcomed by their kind staff members and your own butler. We stayed in villa 27 and it had a fgreat view of the beach and the isalnd along with it's own private plunge pool.

The food menu was diverse. We had a bit of both western and Vietnamese food and it was all delicous. We also booked two 60 minute massages with facials and they were very relaxing.

Perfect in every way

Had four nights at this wonderful establishment and have not one bad thing to say about it. We had a tree top split level villa which I think is the cheapest room option but as far as we were concerned it was the best. High in the trees with total privacy complete with its own butler, wow, can I say more!

Food was great, bar was fabulous on the beach and I did monkey island and fishing trip as excursions.

I was recommended this hotel by a travel agent and I’m sure I’d never have found it myself so I’m thrilled to have been a guest there. The service was faultless. Thank you L’Alyana the General Manager and all the wonderful staff.

Amazing L'Alyana!

I have taken an incredibly long time to write this review, as my partner and I stayed at L'Alyana for 5 nights during May 2018.

At the outset, I would have to say that this is without doubt the most relaxed we have ever felt on holidays. It was a combination of the location (away from busy Nha Trang), the accommodation (we stayed in a Hillview Villa), the food (which was wonderful) and most importantly the staff, that combined to make our stay a truly magnificent one.

I can often find it very difficult to unwind and relax, but that was definitely not the case here. There is plenty to do if you choose, but we really enjoyed the seclusion.

Our Hillview Villa was split over three levels with a private pool, which we used every day. The quality of the villa was fantastic and you really felt like you wanted for nothing.

The Vietnamese people I have always found be extremely friendly and welcoming, and this was no exception at L'Alyana. Our butler for our villa (Tung) and our events coordinator (Cong) were both outstanding.

Both my partner and I remember our stay in Ninh Van Bay very fondly, and look forward to returning for some more relaxation.

Nice and Cosy Stay
Reviewed 4 months ago

My family, me, wife, 2 kids (8 years and 12 years) and a mother in law stayed in grand lagoon villa for 4 nights. The resort provided extra-bed and bedrooms were spacious and cosy. Kids enjoyed swimming at a pool in the villa day and night. The pool was not big but good for 2 kids and one adult to play together. We went a fishing and snorkeling tour provided by the resort with the cost of around USD 200 and it was fantastic and more than expected.

The staffs are very nice and kind. Our butler, Ms. Dao kindly arrnaged our everyday activities that my family enjoyed many activities including fishing and yoga. ( I like to give her two thumbs up!) Also the senior member on the boat was very kind and took good care of my son while swimming at the sea.

The reort is in a jungle so you should expect the encounter with some insects and animals but we did not see many mosquito and lizards and squirrels are kind too :-)
