My sister and I stayed here for 3 nights. After the craziness of Hanoi, we couldn't believe it when we suddenly turned off a market street and pulled into this oasis that seemed to appear from nowhere. Our trip was mixed with budget accommodation and a couple of luxuries - and this was certainly a luxury. The rooms were excellent, the pool lovely and we ate in the restuarant each night, and yes it was more expensive, but the food was superb (esp recommend the penne carbonara, if you want a break from Vietnamese food after a while). On our last day we did not leave until 9pm due to catching the overnight train to Hue, and sadly the weather was awful. But we were able to arrange a late check out of midday and then moved to the lovely indoor pool area, where we lazed on the big day beds reading, swam and both booked a massage (which were incredible). After another great meal they then arranged a taxi to the train station for us. All in all a very enjoyable stay in a beautiful resort.
