Today is our final day here having spent a week at this most peaceful hotel. Our room is beautiful with a lovely river view. The photos of the rooms do not do them justice. They are quite stunning. The bath area is fully tiled with a separate room housing the toilet. We particulatly liked the wet room style shower with a choice of shower heads and the king size stone bath with steps leading up to it was a very attrative feature.
The hotel is located in a small typically Vietnamese community, with a small school, a collection of shack type shops and even a Bar.
The breakfasts are delicious, serving both eastern and western style food., served in their floating restaurants right on the bank of the river.
While we were there we went on the cookery class they arrange. This was much more authentic than the commercially ones arranged in Hoi An and gave us a better insight on how the locals shop. We certainly recommeded this.
Bicycles are available for the guests so on Sunday morning, we cycled up to the road to see cattle grazing or being used to pull ploughs. Cycling is easy as the roads are flat and there are hardly any cars on the roads.
Relaxing by the pool has been compulsory for us, the water is really warm and the pool staff automatically place towels on the loungers each morning.
The shuttle bus they operate is very efficient and prompt and the timetable gives guest ample time both at the beach and in Hoi An.
Guests normally stay here for a couple of days before continuing their journey wither north to Hanoi or south to Ho Chi Minh. Every one we spoke to envied us because a couple of days is too short and a lot of them wished they had booked more time here.
With temperatures in the mid 30s and being low season, the hotel is very quiet and an ideal time to come.
Minh and the rest of the team will make you feel at home in this beautiful, quiet oasis of an hotel.
