Enchantingly remote beach retreat with a Nick Faldo–designed golf course on the shores of Lang Co Bay
Set between mountain and sea, this lush seafront resort in central Vietnam combines an off-the-grid location with the kind of upscale resort amenities (an award-winning spa, a Nick Faldo–designed golf course) you'd expect from the Banyan Tree brand. Pitched red-tile roofs and open courtyards dot this romantic retreat, a modern twist on the traditional garden houses found in nearby Hue. Earth tones are accented by splashes of purple, and latticework wall panels are inspired by the patterns that decorate Hue’s citadel walls.
Bed and Bath
All 56 rooms are set in lush private gardens, with infinity pools and secluded lounge areas. Inside, the designer digs feature intimately lit bedrooms with billowy curtains and bamboo floors with a striking botanical motif. A state-of-the-art in-room entertainment center provides an ambient soundtrack, making it easy to unwind. Large windows offer garden views from every angle (including from the shower, toilet and tub), and bathrooms are equipped with tropically scented products. Lagoon Pool Villas offer the best views (number 120 hogs the limelight), while the identikit beach villas (which are not exactly on the beach) offer superior gardens with a Jacuzzi and a shaded pavilion.
Breakfast is served at the poolside Watercourt restaurant, where culinary stations creak under bountiful displays of belt-loosening world class fare (sushi, pastries, chilled fizz). For spectacular sunsets and Thai fusion cuisine, dine at the mountain-edge Saffron, which has a wraparound veranda that overlooks the bay. Indulge body and soul with a muscle-melting massage at the spa, or tee off at the Nick Faldo–designed golf course; the decadently eclectic Thu Quan library bar is a top spot for a post-game G&T.
In the Area
The secluded beach location, languorous spa, epic eateries and endless program of on-site activities make it hard to leave this paradisiacal playground. Should wanderlust hit, the temples and tombs of Hue, the Champa ruins of My Son and the colonial shopping hot spot of Hoi An are just a daytrip away. Closer to home, explorers and adrenaline junkies can get their fix by exploring Lang Co by mountain bike, ATV or guided trek. Closer still: Hop aboard the hotel's riverboat for cocktails at the neighboring Angsana Resort's Upper Deck bar.
