I am so impressed by this property and it's location that I hardly know where to start to sing it's praises. It is located right on the beach about a 10 minute drive from down town Han Oi. Free shuttle buses are provided at certain times however a taxi (metered) ride is only about $6 Aus.
When you arrive you enter a spacious reception area with lovely english speaking staff and check was efficient swift and welcoming. Downstairs from the reception is the restaurant which opens up onto an out door area overlooking the spacious manicured gardens and the swimming pool. Prices in the restaurant are quite cheap for restaurant prices but obviously not as cheap as the restaurants across the road (three of them)
Above and adjacent to reception are three stories or rooms and these would be the cheaper ones. They looked quite nice from the outside but were smaller than the more expensive rooms.
Then there are clusters of four rooms, two on the bottom and two on the top shaped around the gardens facing the pool (suggest ground floor if you can get one). Further towards the beach there are single storey top of the range rooms which are apparently very roomy and worth the price.
All buildings are well spaced and not crowded like some hotels.
The pool is large with many sun chairs, a small bar and food is available there at lunch time.
The beach is lovely with long stretches of sand, FREE lounges, with bamboo shade structures. It is patrolled by security and life guard so you do not get any hawkers. Each bed is well spaced so you are not on top of each other (eg Patong beach). There is a guy selling cold drinks. Icy cold beer was $1 Aus-- cannot complain about that. The area tends to get cooling breezes coming in over the water in the afternoon which was marvelous as it was pretty hot
The rooms are very modern with all the conveniences you could want. Huge King size bed - very comfortable with lovely pillows. Lovely toilet/shower with all toiletries supplied. Towels are changed twice a day. The room has a small writing table, central table with lounge chairs and flat screen TV-- TV has wide range of english speaking chanels. Free wifi
All staff were lovely friendly and could not do enough for us -- they are a credit to their management. Most, including front office, waiters/waitresses, life guards, pool attendants spoke and understood english.
At the front entrance to the hotel there is a small shop that sells drinks, does laundry and can organise massage pedicure manicure. Beer can = .50c Aus, four items laundered -$4 Aus, Pedicure and manicure (the best I have had anywhere including Australia,Bali Thailand) $4 each.
The only down side to this property and this is a really minor one and that is that there is no ATM or bank in the vicinity. You either have to change money at the hotel or go into downtown Hoi An to get money.
In one way I would like to keep this area a secret so that it does not get ruined by us tourists. It is nice and quiet and very little traffic outside so the horn honking is kept to a minimum. Would not suit the night clubbers or the party animals but if you want a pleasant retreat from the big city hustle/bustle and mayhem this is the place.
Breakfast has a huge selection of western and asian foods (tip try the spring rolls they are to die for)
