Banyan Tree Vietnam

Hotel Spy

5-star Vietnamese hospitality at its best

Where

Located within 90 minutes of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Hue, Hoi An as well as My Son, the Banyan Tree will both inspire and captivate travellers.

It is ideally set among the pristine shores of southern Vietnam where the gentle lapping waves will help you switch off from work – at least for a week or two.

But it’s the striking landscapes that draw people in thanks to the impressive East Sea. This is the first venture for Banyan Tree into Vietnam but don’t they know how to do sophisticated luxury. In addition, the spectacular Truong Son Mountain Range gently hugs this venue like a mother cradling her new born.

Tell me about it

This exclusive all villa luxury resort consists of 49 stunning lodges, all of which feature sublime lagoon style pools. Soak away your worries and live like royalty which you can view in the inspirational interiors.

Paying tribute to the imperial capital of old based in Hue, look out for plenty of lacquered fixtures as well as silk finishes, traditional shutters, and bamboo wooden flooring.

Take advantage of the stunning vistas of the manicured grounds and wraparound windows that will make you feel more in touch with nature than David Attenborough.

There are plenty of incredible royal architectural designs implemented which can be seen throughout. Enjoy your own haven in the beach style villas that comes complete with a host of amenities.

This features air conditioning, ornate paintings adorning the walls, plasma television and a private sun terrace and pavilion. Meanwhile the pure white sands are just a step away, that’s if you have the energy to get up!

Hungry for more

There are a number of different options to whet your appetite. Azura is the place to experience idyllic beachfront dining and a wealth of Italian cuisine and delectable delights from the sea. Meanwhile, Saffron is home to a range of modern Thai specialities and The Quan provides plenty of snacks not to mention an extensive selection of teas.

If you prefer a little va va voom to your culinary adventures, then you can sample The Watercourt. French dishes by the dozen with touches of Vietnamese cooking will leave you more than satisfied.

Indulge

You can book a relaxing massage at the Banyan Tree Spa Lang Co with a variety of treatments as exotic as the wildlife. Get back to nature with some of their therapies which have been passed down from generation to generation.

They have numerous holistic treatments that will ensure you stay in touch with your inner self whilst connecting with the natural surroundings.

They use nothing but the finest aromatic oils and herbs in order invigorate and reawaken your spirits. As Belinda Carlisle once sang, heaven is certainly a place on earth.

By the way

As Phil Mickelson is crowned Open Champion in Muirfield, Scotland, enjoy its main attraction, a wonderful 18 hole championship golf course, created by none other than Sir Nick Faldo.

Time to get those clubs out of the shed.
