“A honeymoon dream come true!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

We stayed in a hill top villa for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon. We wanted somewhere luxurious that we would always remember and we were not disappointed. Our Butler Thuy was incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We asked for minimal butler service and we were never disturbed, even the cleaners always came when we were out for breakfast or dinner. I have seen the other reviews about the restaurant but our food was delicious. We were treated like royalty for our last night with a candlelit dinner on the beach, a honeymoon cake and a beautiful surprise to remember the resort by. I can't recommend this resort enough and I hope to be lucky enough to stay again someday.

Room Tip: We loved our hill top villa

We spent our honeymoon at An Lam villas and I have to say it was amazing. The whole concept of individual villa with the pool and personal butler is excellent. Am Lam is a beautiful and unique place with Vietnamese charm.

Originally we stayed at the Hill top villa and had lovely Ms. Thúy as our butler. I can't speak highly enough of her - such a lovely person and very professional at what she does. 'No' just wasn't an answer to anything: we asked to unpack our suitcase - she did exceptional job, we asked for extra sun beds to be set up at our villa - done. After 3 days of our stay a noisy family with kid moved in the villa next to ours - we asked to move - and hotel upgraded us to Lagoon villa and moved us within 1 hour. There are few little touches hotel offered us which was really nice!

The are couple things which I wish hotel can improve:

- Restaurant is the weakest point of the resort. As you have only 1 restaurant, the food should be exceptional. We found the food being very inconsistent - one day it could be very good, another day very average. Even the same dish ordered on different days turn out completely differently. During the breakfast chef didn't know how to cook the eggs on some days - scrambled eggs massively overcooked and poached eggs so undercooked you can't eat them. In generally food is overpriced for what it is.
Restaurant staff is very friendly and professional, some may need to improve their English as sometimes it is difficult to communicate when you ask a basic questions about the dishes.

- Housekeeping. Although villas are all open and are part of a nature, the housekeeping is not doing 5-star hotel quality. Normally very quick - and our toilet never looked like it's been properly brushed with the cleaning liquid.

We would definitely be back to this beautiful place in a few years. It's a perfect hotel for the romantic/quite holidays as villas are very private.

Paying extra for Lagoon Villas definitely worth it! Also take mosquito spray from home (hotel has mosquito repellent in every villa, but it didn't work for us and we got bitten a lot).

Room Tip: Paying extra for Lagoon Villas definitely worth it - villa 15 is very private and spacious

I have been there for three nights for a site inspection trip. I have searched information about this resort over internet before the trip but I was so impressed when arrived at the resort. Antoine, GM, has there at the boat to welcome us and the butler has brought us to the villa immediately as I have already been checked in at the pied.

I stayed at the lagoon villa which has an L shape with the private swiming pool in the middle. The bathroom is very spacious half indoor half outdoor.

During my stay, I was riding a bicycle to the land the resort has not yet developed and seen the pig farm, there are small rivers, rice fields and herbs garden.

The breakfast has a great selection but the dinner is much better. I think An Lam has one of the best vietnamese food in Vietnam.

Hope to come back to this resort soon!

Amazing hotel with one of the best service in Vietnam! One buttler for your all along your stay. Antoine & Alex, the managers were very available. The room was very spacious and excellent. The resort is for peoples who look for silent, quiet and peoples who want to feel alone in the world. Good place to be!

5 star secluded luxury in a beach jungle setting with impeccable Vietnamese hospitality. You can read my longwinded review for details of this fantastic resort will be back!

Don't know where to start... Arrival experience on land was great at lounge. 5 night stay.
GM & resort Mgr greeted on the dock with additional staff and of course your butler for the week. Complimentary resort enclosed boat shuttles you back & forth on arrival and departure. They also do a 1X complimentary shuttle per day if you feel the need to go to Nha Trang. Lots to there but why leave the peacefulness of the resort??

Butler Hung (amazing Hung!!) showed us our “home”. Nice mini bar, wine fridge around including the 15 bottle nice wine selection. Looked perfect. Most gorgeous hotel room ever. Doors open to all sides and look over private plunge pool. Outdoor & indoor shower, large bathtub outside. Lots of storage space for clothes and luggage. Huge bathroom but didn’t take away from any of the other rooms. So many places to lounge I actually never sat in one of them – the shaded gazebo with daybeds, I used the daybeds inside the villa. Hung brought a daily fruit plate and desserts complimentary. Lots of bottled water as well.
Hung arranged scuba diving, brilliant with speedboat and being met in town by diver master. Very touristy event turned civil based on arrangements by him – effortless for us!
Breakfast buffet really nice, grill your own bacon on the charcoal grill, pho etc. Seated on the sand by the pool & ocean. There is a very nice bar with a waterfall over the boulders and pool table. 2 for 1 happy hour from 4-6.
Lunch either in the restaurant and had room service which was perfect.
Room was so well constructed and open concept. Indoor & outdoor shower, lots of luggage space, outdoor tub. No annoying steps out of the toilet which is a first in Asia. The bedroom is supplied with perfect AC should you wish to close the doors and windows and darkening shades.
Butler experience like concierge. This is one of the most remarkable features of this resort. Always available, never in the way. Our butler Hung was young man so pleasant all the time. Morning maid service during breakfast flawless cleanup and servicing. The pool was clear and refreshing. Each night when we went for dinner turn down service left the room exactly as requested. All doors open and air flowing on all sides – gorgeous. Nights are just right temperature, no bugs.
The resort is so secluded it must be self sufficient with generated power, 3G internet, water purification and all the other logistics of running such a facility. Never once did we feel anything but luxury. Everyday at exactly 11AM the power turns off for about 1 minute while they switch over generators.
Great quality and cleaniness all around.
Private plunge pools are the bomb.
Wifi internet works well considering how remote and self sufficient it is.
Open fires strategically places around the restaurants make for romantic setting.
Beach is private and nice with swimmable water, you will never see another person on the beach who is not from the resort. A small fishing community existing around the corner, made up of stilted huts and fish corals. Paddling past them in the kayak they say hello and share a view of their days catch.
The F&B is superb on a all levels. Reasonable “resort” pricing is how I would categorize the food. Dinner in the restaurant, food was great. Crusted tenderloin one of the best steaks I’ve ever had, was incredible.
The resort is not built for small children, even teens could be quite bored here. If you need action and night life this is not the place. Live 2 pc guitar band sings Western oldies songs in the restaurant at night at a very low volume in the background.
Spa treatments are “reasonable resort” pricing as well with a variety of treatments. I had the salt scrub followed by a complete rub down with wonderful creams, was excellent.
There private dining and excursions available on their own various boats which also seemed very reasonable, we did not book any… once again why leave??

Room Tip: No bad rooms but the beach villas are not as private. The jungle suites are multi-floor with stairs.

We (with a two-year old toddler) stayed at the An Lâm Ninh Van Bay from December 29, 2014 until January 3, 2015.

The 5 reasons why you should go there:
1. Experience a true Vietnamese resort, which does not belong to an international chain
2. Privacy, privacy, and privacy:
- You want to be unsocial. That’s the perfect place.
- Access by private boat only to the resort.
- And: Each villa has enough distance to its neighbor.
3. Get pampered with excellent butler service:
- Personal Preference Care Form to be filled in and send back prior arrival (KYC = Know Your Client, right?). They did read mine and responded perfectly to our wishes.
- Our butler Trân did an outstanding job. I needed milk for my daughter, lots of milk: a liter (34 fl. Oz.) per day. In a blink of the eye, the fridge was full of milk, generously calculated to the amount of days we stayed there. Trân was always there for us, even though we knew that she’s assigned to a couple of villas. She made us feel so special, including our daughter who adored her. Since I am quite detail-oriented: A personal handwritten Happy New Year card from Trân.
4. A very friendly and professional staff with the perfect eye for details:
- Each villa has bicycles placed in front of the villas for the guests to take a ride around the resort. The morning after our arrival, there were two children bicycles of different sizes parked in front of our villa, since they were not sure which one would suit our toddler best. What does this tell you?
- Every time we left the villa and returned (even only for a short walk to the beach), it was perfectly tidied up.
- My husband always went to the gym in the evening: He forgot his iPad there (do not ask me!). Scenario the next day: I was wondering why he turned the villa upside down. I pointed out that he might have left it at the gym and informed Trân. She knew already that someone had forgotten an iPad in the gym (so there’s a great communication among the staff in place). Happy End for my husband and his iPad being reunited again.
- And: When the gardener is greeting you friendly and with such warmth, it tells you a lot, how the resort is being managed. Congratulations to the general manager for having such a great staff in place and creating a good atmosphere among them.
5. Wonderful food:
- They grow their vegetables, salads and herbs in the gardens behind the villas.
- Besides serving à la Carte Vietnamese and Western food (of course we did NOT try Western), there was always a great buffet where you wanted to eat everything.
- The lunches we took in our villa: from ordering upon arrival of the food in no time!
- Afternoon tea is served in the villa: the cookies and fruit platters were always different; we were always looking forward to it.
- Plus: Minibar? A large fridge, where our choice of (alcoholic) beverages was stored (remember the form I had to fill in?) and fresh fruit platter, plus a little fridge with the usual beverages you expect to find. Plus in one of the drawer fresh and very tasty cookies.

They offer a wide range of activities, but we didn’t to any of them, since we just wanted to relax.

Our choice of villa next time – YES, we will be back!
Since it will take a couple of years until our daughter turns 11, no Hill Rock Villa. We will go for the Ocean View Villa. No, we will go for the Lagoon Villa.
We definitely need to flip a coin.
