We arrived from singapore on tiger/vietnam airlines few days ago, was a tiring and long journey but were pleasantly surprised by the nice ambience of the room upon check in. The room is very new, with exellent quality material all round. Nice porous marble flooring, granite sunken bath and shower, solid wood bed and other furniture pieces. The private pool is super, made of granite, the room we got, and i suppose the rest of the rooms at the resort, get excellent sunlight througout the day. Its 0700 hours in the morning and I am writing this while the sun is already shining into the far edge of the pool. Speaking to some of the locals at Hoi An yesterday, they mentioned it being summer, sunlight hours are slightly longer,.
The resort sorroundings is also very well done up, they certainly did not stinge with the materials used. There are about 60 odds villas in the resort, but the well thought out layout still makes for a feeling of spaciousness.
There are two common pools, the main infinity pool facing the beach and sea, and the spa pool at the spa with a strong and pleasant waterfall. The main pool is very nice and clean, most of the sun chairs and beds are here. The beach is fantastic, one of the best i've been to. Better than Bali/Lombok, Cherating, Maldives in terms of "swimability", Very similar to kata in Phuket with finer sand, shallower water, stronger waves and much less people.
The waves are excellent for body boarding, but unfotunately, there is charge by the resort of 5 dollars per hour usage. Which brings me to the resorts down points.. the spa facilities like the rest of the resort is new and top notch interms of quality, but the service has area for improvement. reserving treatments was like a lottery with only obscure slots available. For some reason as well, out of all the guests we observed, we kept getting the male therapists, which is okay for me, but the wife was a bit uncomfortable. Quality of massages, I suppose is working progress, but the reservation services need to be simplifide and made more transparent. There is a reservation advisory which says "advance reservations are accepted after 1800hrs for the following day" but we observed many people reserving in advance, we even stole a glimpse of some guests emailing in advance a list of the treatment they wanted throughout their stay, before they even arrived!!"
A second area for improvement is the language. On our first day, we had some trouble communicating with the resort staff, but, being new to vietnam, did not mind this too much. However, upon our visit to Hoi An, at the tailors, the workers there spoke excellent english and made us wonder if the resort could get customer facing staff that could speak a certain level of the language, the overall service level would be superb.
well, thats that for now, the sun is shining in even more and calling out to us to start our day...
