"This is the resort? Wow it's so wonderful and relaxing..." asked my Mum. "No," I replied "this is just where we catch the complimentary boat to take us across the bay to the An Lam resort."
My husband and I, mum and sister stayed at An Lam in a two-bedroom lagoon-side villa (villa 10) for three nights. We were a little hesitant to stay here at first as it's still relatively new and not widely known, and on the pricy side. But we were so glad we chose An Lam and will try to come back every six months to get away from the Hanoi chaos where we live. So tranquil, I have never slept so well!
Accommodation - where the outside meets the inside, luxurious but you feel as one with nature. Very spacious with everything we needed. Bedrooms separated by the living areas, so my husband and I had absolute privacy from the other bedroom. We had villas on either side of ours, but the location and design of the villas meant we never even knew if there were other guests staying next door. Also loved the in-villa music, and bar fridge which was stocked according to our preferences. Villa very short walk to restaurant and all other facilities. Complimentary tandem bikes good fun!
Service - out butler My was incredible. We ticked the 'discrete butler service' option (yes, you decide how much service you want from your butler), but she went out of her way to anticipate our needs, and went above and beyond. My organised an in-villa dinner for my birthday next to our private pool, complete with candles, a personalised birthday plaque and roses, birthday cake and musicians to sing happy birthday - most of which My did of her own accord. I almost cried saying goodbye to My... Ursula (the resident Aussie manager), was everywhere, always ensuring we were good with everything. Restaurant staff and boat staff excellent.
Excellent food (although pricey, probably due to the fact that everything has to be shipped across). Your choice of breakfast every morning from a comprehensive menu (complimentary). Next time would be good to see a cheese and/or antipasto platter added to the menu. More snack options would be nice when you don't always feel like a heavy meal and when it's too much effort to drag yourself away from the beach or villa. Complimentary cocktails on the beach with fire before dinner on one of the nights - very nice touch.
