This resort is so surprising we will never forget. In this country with a such a noisy and busy life, you suddenly arrive in this totally "zen" ambiance where you can rest and relax.
The architecture of the building is modern and luxurious without being showy and the villa was just perfect with open sky bath and pool. The gardens are beautiful and most important you never cross a person who will not genuinely smile to you.
I have to add that you can also experience a great menu and a wine list with a excellent choice while contemplating the sea, the swimpool and the palm trees. We visited the places around white dunes, fish market and played golf at Sea links. We will return and we recommend it. TH K, Tokyo
The setting of this resort is stunning. A short walk through beautiful gardens takes you to the main building housing the dining room and bar. The view is post card perfect.......gorgeous beach, antique light house and quaint fishing village. The decor here, as in the villas is understated elegance.
We cannot say enough about the staff at this resort. Within days we felt like family here. Nicole and the staff at the restaurant remembered our names and what we liked to drink. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We enjoyed the menu so much we dined at the resort every night. We felt the prices were fair and the quality of the food very high. We tried most dishes on the menu and were never disappointed. Chef Phat had his recipe for Pho copied out for me and made us a special cake for our anniversary.
The management of the resort often stopped to ask about out stay and ensure we were enjoying ourselves. At one point I asked if there was a place I could purchase some of the local salt to take home. The next day a large bag was presented to me as a gift from the hotel.
This was the perfect place for us to relax after two month in Asia. Thank you to everyone at Princess d'annam for an amazing vacation. KerryY, Vancouver, Canada
