My husband and I booked this based upon Trip Advisor reviews, and when we arrived on the 9th September we couldn't quite believe how beautiful it was.
There are around 5 villas and three hotel rooms, and the pictures on the website do not do the surroundings justice. There is a beautiful pagoda to sit and have breakfast on every day (and dinner if you notify the staff - but be prepared you get what you are given, which is delicious and plentiful for around USD 20.00). The pool lies amidst a stunning pond full of beautiful fish, the setting is both tranquil and relaxing. There are lovely bikes to borrow (at no extra cost) to go to the town centre (approx 4km away) or to the beach (approx 4km away) - this really is so much fun and we spent our entire time hopping on the bikes and visiting somewhere new.
We stayed in one of the villas which offered a large room complete with cable television, large double bed, sofa and both indoor and outdoor bathroom. The air con was fantastic and we never needed to leave it on overnight. The outdoor bathroom is really very charming and a special deature of the villas. Admittedly, there are perhaps a few little things that need to be improved in the rooms (just a little maintenance), but you must understand that everything is so gorgeous and the staff are so fantastic that you can completely overlook any little things like the odd small stain on the wall, or a broken drawer handle.
The staff are exceptional, nothing is ever too much trouble and they offer both decent and helpful advice (such as visiting My Son temple ridiculously early in the morning - brilliant idea to avoid the crowds and the heat). Taxis are ordered and prices agreed by the hotel before you get in, so no bartering over using the meter.
There is a chap called Bon who worked in the evenings, I mention him specifically as was such a delight to have a chat to on the way back to the villa and always offered such wonderful advice as to which beaches to go to, and the best restaurants in town.
I cannot recommend this place enough, and secretly would like to keep it to myself but feel it's only fair to share such a magical little oasis with others.
