“Superbly remote”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

We took a flight from Hanoi to Cam Ranh (Nha Trang) and were met by a really friendly young lady at the airport for pick up. We had a private car to resort's jetty because there were no other guests arriving on that flight.

After an hour drive we arrived to the jetty. They have a lounge there and cool towels, cold drinks and some snacks were offered. They requested to fill in a questionnaire about preferences with minibar drinks, butler service level, allergies, favorite food items etc. Our suggestion was that they could have delivered the questionnaire well in advance. It would have been easier that way.

The boat trip to the resort took about 15 minutes with a speed boat. The boat was modern, ultra clean and comfortable. Life vests provided (compulsory).

Upon arrival we were greeted by many staff members including our butler Nguyen. Welcoming was amazingly friendly and we felt like at home at once.

Our L shaped villa was by the lagoon. It was very private even though we had neighbors on both sides. The villas are not luxurious in traditional way but they are fantastic as they are. The only visible minus was the flooring which should have been natural stone if not wood. The floor was quite ugly really and it did not match with the style of the villa.

The villa is semi open. Bedroom is completely 'closed' area if you want it. And it is the only space with air con. In the morning house keeping opened all the walls and so the whole villa was open space during the day. Of course if you don't want it that way it is up to you. We liked it. Only a few insects were met in our villa. Squirrels steel soap but nothing else.

House keeping did a really good job. The villa was clean and in order all the time. Some fabrics were stained but some people are messy and they can not change upholstery after every guest.

We chose to have quite limited butler service. Nguyen's standard duty was to check the villa after house keeping in the morning and after turn down service in the evening. And he did a really good job. We had interesting conversations with Nguyen in the mornings and evenings. What a lovely guy.

Breakfast was delicious. If you don't find in Western or Vietnamese buffet anything you like you can have something from the menu. We liked especially their minute steaks in the morning. But be sure that you'll find a lot of options in buffet. Waiters bring juice and coffee to your table. And they have a good choice of them.

They have only one restaurant but menu is loaded with options - Western and Vietnamese. If you stay there for ten nights as we did, you can have different food every night. And the food is tasty and beautifully presented. Wine list is also very good. Service in the restaurant, day or night, is friendly and attentive. Absolutely great!

The staff is amazing. They all are warm and friendly. And especially Ursula was a person to remember. In the restaurant Thanh and Ly were our favorite.

They have a wonderful sunset cruise. It is highly recommended. You see the coast line and fisherman villages on the sea. Amazing!

We enjoyed a lot of the remote location. If you want to go to Nha Trang during the day, it is possible. We did not.

An Lam Ninh Van Bay Villas is a place to visit again. They have regular guests who stay there for months.

Room Tip: If you are looking for privacy and sun, choose a lagoon villa.

This hotel is not international 5 stars. The furnitures (towels, bed, and sofa) must be changed. Currently they are scratched, damaged, spoted, unclean...
You have to know that you will not find choice on restauration, as they have only one (monopole) Choice is limited and expensive (buffet is 1.750.000 vnd) main dishes around 450 000 to 1.7. We were disappointed by the food as they are not showing the Vietnamiens taste and speciallity.
Bar is not well located behind the restaurant no sunset view, music noisy, it is not suitable for a lounge, sunset and serenity.
You have to know that you will be dependant on the resort, 1 restaurant, 1bar, and if you want to go to Nah Trang you have take the complimentary offer means departure at 8:30 and return at 14:30 or to pay your own way. Resort to Nah Trang arround 30mn transportation (boat and shuttle).
We also had issue with our safe as we were not able to open it once. Hopfully, we did not notice any theft.
Coffee in the morning is slow, they need to invest on coffee machine.

Worthy mentioning is the friendliness of the staff.

We stayed in a Rockhill Villa and were amazed by its size and comfort. Thanks to our butler Phu the resort's service was perfect and almost more than we could handle. Other positive notes: the food and cocktails (happy hour), surroundings and entertainment systems. 4/5 because of the price.

I have been meaning to write a review for a year now!! So sorry for delay!

All I can say is that this experience was amazing. My boyfriend and I were backpacking and I had a mad moment with the credit card after staying in very low scale hotels.

After my boyfriend's initial melt down at the price and a potential break-up on my hands, we were picked up in a lovely car and then boarded a lovely boat and arrived to the most welcoming staff EVER. Nothing was too much. We arrived really early but they gave us a woodland villa to use until our villa was ready.

Our villa was just amazing. Lovely pool, outdoor shower/bath and huuuuuge lounge. Comfy bed. JUST BLISS.

I cannot say how much I loved this luxury. Yes, it's by no means cheap but you get what you pay for. Ultimate luxury. (My boyfriend agrees and we are still together a year on, hahaha)

Room Tip: The villas around the lagoon were a bit fancier

My wife and I, along with our two daughters (ages 5 and 11) enjoyed our 3 day stay at An Lam Ninh Van Bay Villas immensely. We hiked, biked and swam from sun up to sun down. The cabin was so comfortable with a wonderful bed, a private plunge pool and an entertainment-on-demand system. Our butler Truc attended to our every need and even brought my daughter a special birthday cake (even though her birthday was still a couple of weeks away). The restaurant was also outstanding and offered delicious choices for all tastes and a very affordable Kids Menu.

The one and only negative...our stay ended and we had to come home.

I was torn between An Lam and the well known Six Senses . We made the right choice by far with An Lam. An Lam Villa's was our last stop in Vietnam and couldn't think of a better way to leave. Everything about this place is amazing - the staff, the food, the scenery, the service, etc. We were able to have a bit of everything here - relaxation to tons of other things such as hiking, cooking classes with chef matthew (who is amazing), as well as the most incredible experience ever an excursion to the local town fish village with our amazing tour guide. Everything about our experience was lovely. if you do make it to the spa, just be sure to advise which service you are having done so the correct masseuse is on duty for you. HIGHLY recommend. + + + + +

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,

Room Tip: Choose a room with a proper sea view and not up in the trees as our room 31 was quite dark. Also as...

Thank you for your comment, yes indeed we have a "windy season" in the aria of NT. Due to our setting and location in the Bay we are usually well protected and also the fisher boats form the other side take shelter with us.
