“A wonderful wedding anniversary gateaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

My husband and I went there for our 20th anniversary. The hotel has a checklist of your preference and the facilities available that they sent once booking was done. So I stated that we r celebrating our anniversary. The hotel went out of the way to make our stay memorable. They even did a lovely wood plaque commemorating the day and gave it to us. The service is good. The villa was lovely., spacious with different areas to R&R - living room, cabana, the deck. The bedroom is also next too the pool. Very private. It has it's own well stocked wine chiller! The food at the restaurant was delicious and the menu pretty good. They can arrange private dinners on the beach, at your villa and various other spots including going on picnics etc. suffice to say we had a great, relaxing time there. The scenery was beautiful, good atmosphere and service

Perfect setting for couples, honeymoons or special anniversaries.
We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary and my birthday on the same day, we couldn't have wished for a more perfect day or holiday, it exceeded our hopes and dreams in every way. We were spoilt by the wonderful staff who are so eager to please and loved the surprises!!

Every member of staff was first class, the manager and his team meeting us as we arrived, each time we left the island to go to the city or excursion and when we departed was a lovely touch, as was the cocktail party on the beach with the manager and his team.

The food was superb.

The villa was idyllic and huge and quickly Villa Laycock became our home.

Our butler, Mr Phu is simply the best butler in the world with a very kind heart.

Culture trips and trips into the city well worth it. We loved everything about our trip to An Lam and Vietnam and will return in the future.

There was only one negative....leaving!

Thank you to the An Lam Team for making our special anniversary and my birthday so very special. Life long memories.

Room Tip: Tree top villas are very secluded, huge and well appointed

An Lam was one of the best places we've ever stayed in. Unlike some other busy places along the main coast, it offers a complete privacy and a stunning setting. The food is excellent (locally farmed ingredients), service is superior and overall just brilliant.

It takes about 30mins to the pontoon from Nha Trang city in a taxi and then another 15mins on the boat.

You can sense the attention to detail - fresh bakery and drink at the arrival to the pontoon, people and your personal butler greeting you at the arrival, followed by an introduction to your villa. We then got an invite to a welcome drink on the catamaran to join and meet some of the other guests who may have arrived.

The villas were large and equipped to the max - movie library, ipod connectivity and speakers throughout, private outside area and pool. Personal coffee machine and so on. Wifi is also everywhere. Housekeeping always made sure all is perfect during breakfast and dinner. The breakfast is amazing and offers a combination of Vietnamese and Continental food. Dinners are great and quite often they run all you can eat buffet based on a theme - eg seafood. You can also have a private dinner on the beach if you're in that sort of thing.

In terms of activities, you can spend time kayaking, fishing or relax on the beach. There are also cooking classes, brilliant SPA and a gym that you can go to. We also took the bikes to cycle around, but it only takes you about 20 minutes to do the circle around the resort.

Special thanks to Thuy who was our butler and really looked after us. She arranged a variety of things for us including train tickets, bikes and all the activities at An Lam.

This is an awesome place to relax, well worth the money. In fact, I wish I was there now :-)

Room Tip: If you don't mind stairs, go for the hill-rock villa - you'll have a good view of the bay!

Just came back from spending 5 nights here and would say don't doubt it- just book. The villas are on a picture perfect stretch of the bay that is a 20min boat ride away from anything remotely resembling noise. The pool area is beautiful and the restaurant solid. The villas are absolutely fab- huge, spacious living areas with your own pool. The whole resort feels really natural in style and it is a perfect place to spend some time recharging. There are activities to do if you want but we had no problem just spending our time moving between the pool, beach and room!

The thing that takes An Lam to the next level is the service; I have never seen anything like it. Nothing is too much and staff will do everything they can to help. Truc, our personal butler, was so helpful booking flights, transfers and generally making our stay completely stress free. In fact, every member of staff without fail was nothing but helpful, friendly and thoughtful.

Only slight reservation worth mentioning: the beach is not as nice as other parts of the country with coarser sand and the water slightly silty. It was not our favourite place to swim. Don't let this put you off though, it still looks stunning!

All I'm all the staff at An Lam made this a perfect way to end our holiday in Vietnam.

Room Tip: Lagoon villas worth the extra money

Met by staff on arrival, staff very friendly and helpful. Our butler Truc was excellent. The hotel had several things on for the children each day, building kites, fishing, cake decorating visiting the smallholding farm animals, raft ride etc.

Villas very comfy and private. Great nights sleep. Food very good especially the vietnamese street food night.

Transfer is a little pricey

The journey from the airport is around 1 hour and 20 mins to your speed boat connection. Upon arrival at the pontoon you are given a welcoming drink, cold towels and freshly baked madeleines. We knew from here on in this place would be special.

Our 20 min high speedboat trip across the bay to our hideaway was very scenic and encouraged the mind to wonder what was coming up?

At the the hotel jetty we were greeted by the resort manager and our appointed Butler, 'Truc.' He took us to our villa by golf cart and then showed us around. The villa had everything and was set out over three floors. The lounge was outside next to our own pool and had a 'kitchenesque,' type area providing a fresh coffee machine and fully stocked wine and champagne cooler. There was also another fridge which stocked soft drinks, beer, fruit juice and fresh milk. There were also resort guides to the additional activities on offer, such as their spa (which by the way was truly AMAZING and left me literally speechless). You can go sailing in the catamaran, fishing, snorkelling, diving, kayaking, take cooking classes or just simply relax....

We went with a dinner and breakfast package and found this more than enough. Trust me, you won't need lunch after the dinner and breakfast they provide. It is divine!!

We had in advance of our arrival notified the staff that my girlfriend has a severe nut allergy and to keep this in mind when preparing our food. However, there was an genuine mistake when on the first night they accidentally told her that a dessert contained no nuts when it did. They were so apologetic and we are the kind of people that know that mistakes can and will happen. We did not explode like some people would because that is not what we do and we knew it was a genuine mistake. The Head Chef came to personally apologise and informed us that he really was deeply sorry. We knew he was and that was that.

My girlfriend and I want to ensure that we put across to all who read this how wonderful and friendly all the staff are here. They act with the utmost care and sincerity with everything that they do. They want you to have a wonderful time and for everything to be perfect during your stay. They made us feel very special. On one night our Butler informed my girlfriend he had a surprise for us. What a surprise, the staff had prepared dinner by candlelight on the beach for us. It could not have been more perfect or more romantic.

This is paradise, treat them equally with the same love and respect. They are wonderful and we will return!

We had a mixed bag for our month in Vietnam after having high expectations. In particular Nha Trang beach and strip is not somewhere we would visit again but this place is so special we will come back for years to come.

Set in a private bay the service from all staff and our private butler Luann is effortless and perfect. You feel like a billionaire the moment you land on this remote bay of beauty and will not want to leave.

The grounds, pool and life in this bay is so beautiful you just slow down to enjoy it. We booked for 2 days and ended up staying for 6. Our butler Luann deserves special mention for his wonderful service for us and our 3 children aged 2,5 & 7.

We quickly slipped into relaxing days riding around the grounds, sitting by the pool with Luann and the team laying on activities for the kids. At 5pm each day they would take the kids fishing on the jetty whilst we joined in or enjoyed a child free sun downer or two watching the kids laughing and joking with the team. We also went on a fishing trip to visit the local fish farms and bays.

A truly special place with fantastic service. Its also worth mentioning that despite being isolated Anlam have resisted the temptation to rinse every penny out of the guests. Water is free and pricing for this level of resort are very reasonable. They deserve credit for this and this make me want to come back even more.

If I was forced to offer one bit of constructive criticism it would be the food. The breakfast is very good and the lunch and dinner is also very good but not outstanding. Having stayed at AnLam in Saigon I think a mirror of this menu, would be better, particularly for the local options, as we had some of the best Vietnamese food of our lives at their sister hotel.

Take the plunge and treat yourself. The memories will last a lifetime.

Room Tip: We stayed in a 2 bedroom beach villa. This was huge and lovely and worked great for kids however as...
