My husband and I stayed in a hilltop villa (number 29) for five nights (18/10 to 23/10) and had a fantastic holiday. Our butler Mai was great and was always at hand when we needed anything. If we were to go back we would definately ask for either number 28 or 29 hilltop villas as we really like the ocean view and central location and this is even over a beach or lagoon villa.
A must do is the chef's market tour and cooking class if you can get up at 5.30am while you are on holiday. Matthew the Executive Chef took us to 2 markets in Nha Trang, had a cyclo ride and we ate breakfast with the locals in several street side stalls. Upon returning to the resort we had a 1 1/2 cooking class followed by lunch in the chef's garden.
Food prepared by Matthew and his staff was nothing but amazing, prices very reasonable for a resort of this quality and service you could not fault.
The service and relaxed atmosphere in this resort is what makes it so enjoyable and when you leave you just want to go back straight away or at very least explore one of the other properties TJ and Epikurean look after.
Only a couple of minor negatives, there is very little drawer space if you are there for an extended stay and the Spa service needs improving as it does meet the standard of the rest of the resort.
