My husband booked a luxury chalet for my birthday weekend and we drove from Hanoi where he is living and working. A peaceful break from the city noise - wonderful food, beautiful pools, spa and gym. Chalet great, staff friendly and charming - a real taste of peace and quiet. Only criticism is that they seem to have 1 night... More

It was very good break from the smoke and honking of the motorcycles and cars in Hanoi (where we came from before this). They had outdoor and indoor heated pools which we enjoyed.

Tired of car honks, traffic jams on rush hours in daily life ? You can find here peaceful sceneries, surrounded by friendly people and magnificient historical tourist sites. Located only 90 kilometers from Hanoi and on the way to Halong Bay which is very convenient for your travel plan.

Very nice and quiet resort which is very hard to find in Vietnam. Very clean and the staff were very friendly and even spoke good English which was a surprise given the fact that this place is fairly remotely located. There is not much around this resort, so plan your excursions ahead of time. You are better off scheduling your... More

This is one expensive place, and they obviously get a lot of N. Americans. The prices for mediocre Pho and other food items is about the level of American prices, and a 15% service fee is added. The grounds themselves are well kept, and although it was too cold out, there are ample pools to go swimming in. The gym... More
