We spent two nights in this hotel, after a 2,5 hours drive from Da Nang (the airport at Hue will be closed for a few months) we arrived around 9pm in the hotel, we quickly checked in and took dinner in their restaurant, food was ok, but not outstanding..

The hotel itself has a green (jungle) garden, we had a honeymoon pool villa, which strangely enough gave a view on the big pool, a bit strange, I would have built this with some more privacy, now you're just sitting in your private plunge pool looking on another ( by the way magnificent) pool.. Our room was huge, too big, as it was really half empty, we loved the bath tub and outdoor shower . Most disappointing to us was the breakfast room, which missed completely some accomodating atmosphere and was just a sort of school refectory. Staff on the other hand again very friendly. We both had a spa treatment and found this one very relaxing.

We spent one day in Hue, which was not bad, some interesting places to see, in the evening we took dinner in 'les jardins de la carambole', which serves excellent food, we sat outside on their terrace, good wines at affordable prices and service is excellent. The taxi ride from the hotel is about 15 minutes and Ill cost you only a small amount of dong.

This hotel is a good alternative for busy Hue, would we again do the 2,5 hour trip from Da Nang..? Not sure ..

We stayed only one night, but it was very good. The place is beautiful, very green and it makes you feel like you are in a piece of paradise. The 40m pool is definitely a highlight, the spa is outstanding and the service is the best we've seen in a while: smiles everywhere and complete competency with everyone. And amazing breakfast! One remark though: room smelled like moist basement...

The most relaxing part of our three week trip was spent in this hotel.

The pool, the rooms and the spa are all built for ultimate relaxation in mind. It is such a serene and peaceful part of the world.

Keep in mind that it is not in the centre of Hue so you will need to use the shuttle or grab a cab but we had no problems with this.

The service was exceptional. Will return.

We had a terrific room. The venue is just amazing. The spa is absolutely up to highest western standards. And the marvelous pool made us believe we were swimming around Angkor Wat. Needless to say, that the staff was extremely friendly and reliable. And don't miss the free yoga classes at 7.30 a.m.!

The only let down was the restaurant. Quality was only okay, but prices are rather high. But you will get compensated by an excellent breakfast buffet.

Three adults and two kids stayed in three Family Deluxe rooms for two nights in April 2013. Our stay was OK but we wanted to like this place more than we did.

First impressions are great. It has a lovely rustic feel, like a village situated in a tamed jungle. Don't come expecting manicured grounds, because its a far more rural feel. The rooms are also nice. Our room was very large and in pretty good shape. The staff are courteous as well. There's also a nice spa which I thought was reasonably priced ($25 for a great 40 minute acupressure foot massage). Buffet breakfast was good without being outstanding.

However, a continued series of minor annoyances grew into a common theme.
- There are Mosquitos throughout the resort and they will get in your room. There's just too much pooled water around. More Mosquitos at breakfast as well as they left the windows wide open.
- The rooms have very poor sound proofing. We shared an interconnected room with our kids, but even with both interconnected doors closed, their TV was easily heard in our room. The rooms are on two levels - we were on the lower level and could hear every footstep and furniture movement in the room above. The jungle setting brings the cicadas out and they were deafening at sunrise for about 30 minutes. The property backs onto a local farm with rosters which added to the morning noise.
- You get two small bottles of water a day per room. That's it. We asked for more from house keeping at night but were told no, we had to buy them from the mini bar. For a luxury stay, that's just petty.
- The room service was nice, but quite expensive. Cocktails at the lounge were extremely expensive (my rum and coke was $9!) and took them almost 15 minutes to make.
- The huge bathroom looks lovely but has a single basin and no door in the toilet, so all that space is wasted as its really a one person at a time room.
- We lost power three times overnight one night, which happens and is not the fault of the hotel, but the switch box is right beside the bed and gives loud cracks every time the power goes on/off.
- Our bed was ok, but the pillows were just large bits of foam - good if you like really large, firm pillows. The bed also creaked every time you moved. All in all, we didn't sleep very well.

This resort bills itself as luxury and asks for top money. I loved the look and feel, but there were just too many annoyances for this level of cost. And you have a 15 minute trip into town for dinner as well. We didn't hate it, but it didn't live up to expectations at all and we couldn't recommend it.

Room Tip: Get a room on the upper floor so you don't have to listen to footsteps and furniture scraping.

My wife and I spent two days and nights at Pilgrimage village , Hue, Vietnam,in early march 2013.Staff at reception, at restaurant and room service were more than excellent. although Pilgrimage village is 15 minutes from downtown, navette service is very friendly and efficient.Last but not least, Swimming pool, decoration of the garden and lobby, lounge and bar are really fantastic.Excellent quality /price ratio with something more (ambiance, decorum, gentle staff,quality of furnitures, quietness, that many five stars hotel never provide).

Room Tip: Best is to book a room at level two in atwo storey bungalow nearby the restaurant.

Stayed at this resort for 3 nights. We did have a good time here but my review will be highlighting some of the cons of staying here so that readers are aware. The room was very nice, we had a honeymoon bungalow and the grounds of the resort are quite nice with lots a greenery. The staff here are very warm, friendly and attentive and I think this is why I had a good time here.

Cons:
- Resort is not in town. Its abt 10mins or less by car. There is no where to walk to outside the resort. And I really mean there is nothing. There is no scenery, no river or mountains and there are no shops, except the one tiny provision shop across the road. So you are really at the mercy of the resort.

- The hotel grounds are very nice to look at butnone thing I noted is that when inside, there is no way to look outside the resort. I think this is due to what I mentioned in point one. There is no scenery to look at beyond the resort, so I think they have designed it so you don't see its ugly surroundings.

- There are some strange designs to our room. We stayed in the honeymoon bungalow. The room is huge, it has a dipping pool outside, a sunken bathtub inside, an outdoor shower and an open bathroon concept. What I find strange here is that they have these huge windows at the bathtub and the toilet which are suppose to give you a nice view from your room (our view was the public swimming pool and the public walkway). The trouble with that is, people can also look inside! So when you take a bath or do your business, you have to bring down the blinds, which I suppose defeats the purpose of having windows in the first place. People can also see you in your "private" pool

- The restaurants are not air-conditioned, during the season that we went, it got quite stuffy and hot. There are many restaurants in town that have air conditioning with cheaper and better food.

- There are mosquitos on the grounds and in the room. My advice is to turn the fan on in the room, we found this ehlps keep them at bay.There's also a mosquito net you can use.

Okay, that's all. We did enjoy ourselves here but please take note of the above.

Room Tip: The honeymoon bungalow is right at the far end of the resort, that means a long walking distance to...
