“Wonderful place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

I really enjoyed my stay here. The place looks exactly like the pictures. It is so well tended and beautiful. Everything in the room is done very elegantly and the place is spotless. The family that runs it lives here and are very kind and attentive. I ate here a couple of times and the food and service were both good (and very good coffee). There are only about 8 rooms so it is nice and quite - you feel like your staying at a wealthy friends house :-) I won't consider staying any where else when I come back. They easily earned the 5 star rating!

When we first walked into The Earth Villa, we were greeted by a younger man sitting shirtless behind the reception desk. Introducing himself as a member of the family that founded, operates, and lives in the hotel, he apologized for his "unconventional" uniform. "We're not exactly a traditional hotel," he said. "But we're sure we can meet your needs."

We're probably not the most fickle of travelers — and vacationers looking for fastidious service might want to look elsewhere — but Earth Villa most certainly went well beyond meeting our needs. For us, it came down to three things: the premises, the price, and the people.

The hotel itself is beautiful — large and well-appointed rooms, comfortable lobby, beautiful pool — and its location, situated right between the Hoi An old town and the beach, couldn't be better. While not absurdly cheap by Vietnam standards, by almost any metric The Earth Villa is an unbelievable value. Finally, the staff (both the family that runs the hotel and Maria, the place's wonderfully attentive and kind receptionist/concierge, was friendly and helpful.

Highly recommended.

This hotel is by far the best we have stayed in during our trip to Vietnam. It is family run and owned. The staff are amazing so helpful, friendly and genuine. The rooms are big clean and well decorated and yes some small details not yet finished, it's a very new hotel but we have been treated like royalty. The food, breakfast included in the price is great. You can have what you want from the menus. The bikes are really new and very easy to ride, just wish we had tried them earlier. The walk to the town is okay But it has been 42 degrees with very high humidity so be aware. Cabs cheap though. Hotel is halfway between town and beach. the children occasionally swim in the pool but they are so well behaved and quiet. The family are just lovely. The pool has been a wonderful help after long days shopping and sightseeing. Went for a vist with Mr Phong in his village amazing experience would really recommend to every one. He is so knowledgeable and fought in the war and so explained the history of Vietnam and the war from his perspective. The lunch which was included was incredible. Best trip so far. Highly recommend the Earth Villas.

My family spent four days at the Earth Villa Hotel and couldn't be happier. This intimate family operated hotel is a gem of a hotel. My daughter spent all day, everyday in the swimming pool. The staff went out of its' way to make our stay wonderful in every way. We are looking forward to coming back to stay here again next year.

We stayed for 5 nights in April-May. It was nice to be located just on the outskirts of Hoi An. We were located 2 km from the town and 2 km from the beach. The hotel was new and modern. We stayed in one of the earth rooms on the second floor. As far as I know all the rooms on the 2nd floor had a balcony. There was a small pool which was very relaxing at the end of the day. I think the owner and his family lived at the hotel.I just wish I could have communicated with the elderly gentleman because he was always smiling and seemed so nice. Wish we had given ourselves more time in Hoi An so we could have just stayed at the hotel and done nothing for a day and enjoyed the surroundings.

stayed 8 nts in march - fabulous spacious rooms and gorgeous bathroom. staff could not be more helpful and friendly - they even gave us a free meal with cake and flowers for my birthday. i loved the fact that the owner and his family lived on the premises and were always available to help - the 2 small children were very polite and practised their english on us every time they saw us. pool was small but beautiful and always clean as was the whole complex. ideal location just a 10 min walk into town or a 2km bike ride to beach. lots of restaurants even closer to hotel rather than going into town - would definitely reccommend to others.

Room Tip: all rooms were fabulous but we went for the slighty dearer option which gives you even more space an...

Small family owned hotel with top service. Great breakfast choices included in your price for the room. Room #9 was a little noisy due to a pump outside however, It didn't spoil our stay. Staff were extremely friendly & helpful. The pool was wonderful to relax by .We could have done with 5 nights there instead of 3.The town was about a 30 min. walk for restaurants & shops and as 2 females we felt very safe walking in the evening. I highly recommend this little jewel

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room if available
