We love Vietnam and have travelled there many times. In the past we have stayed at resorts that have been managed by TJ and he has always managed to put together a team of people who are excited about what they do and provide great service.
An Lam fits this bill and them some.
We stayed here for 9 nights, which may we say, was not enough.
After a short boat trip we we were met by a group of people who welcomed us and we were then shown to our Hill Top Villa, which was just like luxury living in a tree house. We had a wonderful view of the bay from our bedroom window, we thought we were in heaven
This resort is beautiful, the views from the resturaunt and the main pool are spectacular and while the photos you see are good the real thing is so much better.
It is however the service that is provided by all who work here that make this place very special.
We had an issue with our airconditioner in our villa, and did not want to move as the villa was so beautiful, they tried to fix this for us but the problem could not be solved easily so Lei upgraded us to a Lagoon Villa, which was spectacular, for the inconvenience they gave us a BBQ dinner on the pool deck, unfortunately it rained heavly that night so this was relocated with in the resturaunt. This was unexpected but a testement as to what lengths they will go to to ensure that there guests are thoroughly spoilt.
The BBQ was so good we did organise another night (with no rain) on the pool deck, we had our own waiter and cook and Chef Briony popped over to say 'Hi' and check that all was well. It was almost a full moon, the water lapping at the rocks, great food, just heaven.
We would like to thank Ketih and Lei who helped make our stay very special. Briony, we miss our evening chats on the sofa at happy hour (and the Mojito's). Thank you for the wonderful food and service you provided within the resturaunt and the stories behind the food.
The resturaunt staff Daniel, Binh, Tam and all the others who provided not only great service but lots of laughs and good conversation.
Special thanks need to go to our butler Duc, who went out of her way to make sure we were looked after discreetly, even arriving at the spa with umbrellas after our treatments because it was raining and she did not want us to get wet.
The housekeeping was discreet, our room was always made up when we were at breakfast and the turn down service at night was done when we were at dinner. It is all of these things that made the holiday special for us.
We missed you on this trip TJ, hope to catch you on our return visit, but you have a wonderful team of people who exceded our expectaions. This was our first vist to An lam but won't be out last. See you all next year.
