We arrived at the An Lam late on the 22nd December. Whilst we were expecting a boat journey we were stunned by the small boat that set out with us on a very rough sea into pitch darkness with no real explanation of what was happening as very little English was spoken. The weather for the 5 days we were there continued to be extremely windy which prevented a lot of the possible activities - romantic beachside dinners, barbecues, sunset boat trips etc. Without all this the resort becomes quite limited. The villa was lovely although very much amongst the trees which lashed about in the stormy weather. The staff were mostly charming and our butler very helpful checking up regularly that we had everything we needed and dropping by plates of fruit etc. The Vietnamese food was quite bland and the European food really not very good. Having visited the local food market it was frustrating to see the wonderful breadth of amazing quality ingredients that we did not see coming from the resort kitchen!
However it is a lovely tranquil place and for this reason to be recommended as an escape as part of a trip to Vietnam. Probably better to travel later in January when the weather improves as the resort relies on this,
