Yes it is a long transfer but you wont regret it, we arrived very tired but are spirits were soon boosted by a beautifull room which was in the superior room in a very pretty 3 storey block and a very short distance from the beech, and the windsurfing center (if that is what you are there for as we were) there is a lift if needed which leads from a smart reception area which during the day houses staff making local items to sell (nobody hassles you to buy)
We were greeted at 2.30 am and had plenty of help to our room which included staff helping as with all of our luggage and x3 windsurfers and bags
The room had everything you could want regarding toiletries flip flops robe hair dryer and even a large umbarella which we didnt need in the 3 weeks were were there as we didnt see any rain , there is a fridge which is stocked daily with soft drinks which are very cheap and a small basket is in your room for snacks. A kettle and coffee and tea etc is supplied daily free.
The resort itself if superb the grounds are amazing and the staff can be seen working daily to keep it so pretty and colourfull, every detail has be addressed at this hotle from the quaint little waterfalls in the grounds to providing soft cushions if needed in the beech bars and cabannas on the beech if you need to be out of the wind or in the shade, to a pianist playing whilst you are enjoying the vast variety of food on offer for breakfast - nothing was too much trouble for the staff, the large brand new spa and gym is first class and a massage or treatment is very reasonable
Yes we are windsurfers but if you are a windsurfing widow or just obstain there is plenty to do for everyone shops and restaraunts just outside as is an ATM
now to the windsurfing info, we took our own windsurfers which was no problem to take on the plane just let the airline know before hand and keep the weight down to hold luggage allowance (this did mean taking the max cabin lugguge so girls you will have to forego the shoes, you will only need flip flops anyway). Shore break can be big so you need to get your timing right, take advice from Trang at the center or Lye if you hire they will launch you if need be - we sailed 17 out of 20 days on 4,2 to 5.9 - Dont worry about the kiters there is plenty of room for everyone and they even kept an eye on me when i was overpowered as do the staff at the hire center 85 ltr board was average used
One last thing bear in mind around 9th Feb is the vietnamese new year worth being there for but travelling could be manic
one negative comment the website picture dont do the hotel justice and no i am not a relative of hotel staff i just had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday - Just go for it !
