Vedana Resort is a VERY beautiful impressive resort and spa, with almost a minimalist architectural feel. My room #11 was PALATIALLY huge.. bathrooms the nice of a big size NYC apartment..a bathtub to die for, gorgeous shower into little pebbles, a Xtra large More than king sized bed pounced on a huge wood platform.. my entrance hall was something you could have roller bladed in, had a side office, lounge area, Big screen TV, ceilings that soared and yet, in the dead of winter it was easy to heat up in a flash before bed. Gigantic window onto a private terrace overlooking the gorgeous rive and view, out the bathroom door I had a little path that opened onto a large swimming pool and deck charm area which I shared with my best friends in the vill next door (their's was #12 and thought still as large as mine, the floor plan was totally different and decorated in a more intimate and romantic way. The receptions saw they were a couple and gave them the romantic one. theirs had a huge dressing area behind the Extra more than Kingsize bed, which was in a canopy ned format unlike mine which was up on a platform. Their desk area was in the room. just a different layout, just as nice.. We felt like we had two connecting villas with a very nice private pool area and two huge private terraces that were covered in case it rained.
I used the spa facilities and had the most amazing 2 hour treatment with Hang, ( the prettiest tiny but very strong Vietnamese masseuse) a Body scrub ( green tea) followed by a hot shower then rose oil massage and scalp treatment! The spa is like a floating spa village, built on Stilts, with an impressive brigade to go there - I went at 7 pm in the dark with the full moon and lit pathway up to a Spa entrance complete with beautiful Buddha sculpture and friendly staff… then walked around the moon lit spa corridors that overhung the tranquil river below…
I ate a delicious dinner in the beautiful column filled dining area - Had probably the best sea bass on my entire trip. Staff couldn't be friendlier here in the restaurant area = both at night and in the mornings with a wonderful breakfast.
The staff was lovely everywhere, from the bell hops to the people who drive you around in little buggies if you don't want to walk, to the receptionists or the odd gardener you cross paths with, everyone is delicate, discreet but warm and friendly if you speak with them.
I especially loved and must comment about the room again and the extra large oversized over king size bed.. I've never seen sheets come bigger than 220 cm but this bed must have been 250cm in width and had sheets at least 300 cm! No seams.. I and a wonderful soft cotton! A electric water kettle and free tea bags made for relaxing evenings in the room. The bathtub which is one of those enormous freestanding architectural digest type baths had gorgeous "american standard" faucet and plenty of hot water to fill the entire tub ( something rare in hotels even with normal size tubs) so thank you Vedena for that!
plentiful big ceramic pump dispensers with nice products ( including a very interesting black shampoo which I loved!) instead of those ridiculous tiny plastic bottles, that you always wind up fighting with to get anything out of them. Bravo Vedana.
The River is just gorgeous, especially in the morning and evening when it looks dream ilk and half there or not there.. like you are suspended over something untamable.. extremely romantic and inspiring. In the morning you could see canoes go buy with fishermen, or local people gathering up kelp.. the whole place is extremely well kept and attention to detail is in everything from the huge umbrellas they give you to the perfect umbrella holder when you get to your destination.. non slip little mats going up stars.. i mean truly - someone is obviously running this place very well. The lobby is dreamy - again column filled and soaring ceilings and a nice contemporary art gallery is off to one side.
I have to warn visitors that it's far from Town, But taxis are so inexpensive it doesn't matter, and town itself is not so much something you "need" to be close to as you can arrange all excursions from the hotel to the Tombs and Pagodas - but do visit the town at least one day so you can walk around the citadel and forbidden purple city which they are lovingly restoring.. When I visited Hue, it was January and devoid of tourists and total BLISS to be able to walk around so many impressive world heritage sites without any tacky tourist blocking your view! That was pure luxury! Thank you Vedana.. I loved the experience and shall definitely recommend your hotel.
