“Oasis of calm”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

We only spent one night here after travelling from hue to hoi Ann and it was chosen for us by buffallo tours. We used the free mini bus to travel into hoi an for a meal at night. We had a river view and watched the locals fishing, we used the lovely pool.
Only complaint was that they don't start serving breakfast till 7 a.m. Which is a bit late when you have a morning flight to Ho Chi Minh city.

Would happily come back to this place again. Wonderful. Rooms were comfortable with little balconies if you are on the first floor (only ground floor and first floor accomodation) The accomodation is of 4 units in a block with the blocks/houses set withi a picturesque walk through the vegitation. Very peaceful and a wonderful pool -- you should make the most of it.

Airconditioning in the rooms works well and the room on arriving was beautifully presented.

Breakfast is well laid out with plenty of choice

To be honest, there is nothing on the downside about this resort. I could have happily stayed there for the whole two weeks of my wandering around Vietnam but obviously that would have defeated the object.

Room Tip: Try getting a room that faces the river that runs alongside the resort. Over the other side of the r...

Arrived here today and what a great welcome we got from the lady at reception who was very friendly and informative ,she informed us that we had been upgraded to a river facing room (free)
We were then informed that bike hire was free as was internet, as I sit here doing this review not only is the internet free, they like to make you comfortable with a fan at the side of you to keep you cool!
We are really impressed with our room , the swimming pool and area is great, have yet to try breakfast but looking at what we have already seen am sure this will be good.
They have their own private beach with towels chairs and umbrellas, unfortunately we wont get the chance to use this as we move on tomorrow. Would think a week here would be nice.

Well at least they have attempted to upgrade this quaint little hotel on the river. My room had a new tiled floor, marble bath and sanitary ware plus the bedroom had been decorated. Unfortunately it's a bit of a halfway house as there was still a lot of the very old wood fittings which really spoil it. Location is only a 3 US taxi ride to town, and the location is a lot quieter than those hotels. Breakfast buffet is just satisfactory, although there were less items than before, and the quality has suffered somewhat. Staff are very friendly and helpful as always and it's 1 of the main reasons I stay here, well that and the very large swimming pool. More effort needs to go in fully updating the facilities (poor business facilities) and also reviewing the prices of their food and beverage, which are very expensive compared to almost anywhere else and in this area there is huge competition with some of the best restaurants in Vietnam. A nice play to stay as long as you don't believe the "best boutique in Vietnam" hype.

This resort was a great place to stay.
All four of us arrived unannounced and nothing was to much trouble, they found all of us rooms in front of the pool which was awesome. We were there in June and there was no shortage of rooms availiable. The rooms were clean and tidy and the service was very good.
The resort is well situated across the bridge from the main town (a two minute walk) with no shortage of places to eat across the river.
We plan to go again next year and we would definatley stay here again. Reasonably priced.

Room Tip: A room by the pool is a must with a view of the river

We arrived here via Ho Chi Min City, and at Da Nang airport we were met with a very friendly driver from the riverside whom we had pre-booked earlier, and just to see his cheery smile holding up my name put us both at ease right away his name was Nguyen. On the way this guy chatted non stop about his country and the places we passed which summed him up and was a credit to his company along with his other fellow drivers. !
From the very friendly speedy, girls on reception to the guys taking care of our luggage, it couldn't have been easier i even got a polite wag of the finger for attempting to pick up a suitcase, as you don't see your luggage until you arrive in your room now that's what i call service. I had asked for a room over looking the river and what i got didn't disappoint, a lovely clean spacious room with all the basic mod cons including a large bowl of fruit, and a well stocked mini bar to match which went down a treat. There is also a very large bathroom and a shower which is a honeymooners dream as there is ample room for two..????
The view also from my balcony on the second floor was awesome as you could sit with a cold drink whilst watching fishermen casting their nets in the river below, and behind them the local people toiling in the paddy fields complete with water buffaloes. And to really set the scene one could watch the sun setting right over the river, for a view like this comes only once in a while and it really is relaxing to say the least..!
As for the rest of the resort which is set in it's own tropical gardens with little ponds it came across as very clean with everyone smiling and saying hello, the swimming pool was also clean with plenty of sun loungers etc, and if you wanted something to drink/eat no problem just ask the friendly waiters. Breakfast was really good too with plenty of variety in fact everything from a three course meal to omelette's and much fresh fruits and so on, and all this consumed whilst sitting with a brilliant view over the river watching the army of ducks waddling along the river bank quacking loudly, in fact this was a regular sight both at morning & at sunset which really set the rural feeling here, a truly peaceful setting. The evening meals were also pretty good here too if a little more expensive than down at Hoi An it's self, but in all honesty it wasn't that expensive by Western standards, we ate several times here and were not disappointed by the menu I even tried their fish in banana leaf which was very tasty indeed. There are also many restaurants outside the main gates either left or right and it's you're choice and by all accounts are quite cheap and within walking distance.!
I have also read that some reviewers were not happy here regarding insects, smells etc, what i don't understand is how some people expect to come to a tropical setting like this and not expect to see insects or even experiance some bad smells, we had a lizard in our room to which i didn't mind as it was eating the bad bugs and never bothered us, we had also ants outside which by using some common sense and by putting some sugar down in a far corner of the balcony meant the said ants spent all their time there, problem solved trust me.! As for smells try camping in a Masai Mari village for a few days as we have in the past, remember you ARE in a HOT tropical climate here folks. As we were spending 9 nights here we got to know the routine pretty well regarding the shuttle buses and they run about three times a day down to Hoi An and to the beach the last bus leaving the town about 21.30 which is when everything is shutting down anyway, or you can always get a taxi from reception and costs around 50,000 dong or £1.80 or $2 which is nothing, Going on to the Internet which i tried and gave up due to Hotmail not being really accepted here for some reason, to be honest i wasn't really that bothered as it was so slow anyway. As for laundry there is a little laundrette called " Mrs Ha" just outside the gates turn left and about 100 yards there she is, and she takes about two dollars a kilo which is quite good.
Going back to the friendly staff here and one example was when i bought some fragile bamboo model sampan boats and as i had no box, i asked one of the maintenance guys if he could help me out, he returned some time later with them practically gift wrapped in a sturdy box for me, now thats what i call service and he was a credit to this resort.! If I'm being honest i can truthfully say we enjoyed our stay here immensely and would i stay here again absolutely yes as we had no problems at all. A special mention must also go to the friendly girls on reception whose names are NA & TH'AO and the other girl who took our picture her name escapes me, but they were so friendly & professional and a credit to the resort and made our stay so enjoyable like everyone else did. So give this resort a chance if you want a slice of the real Vietnam you won't regret it..!

Room Tip: Always ask for a riverside view on a top floor if possible, and also bring a torch with you as the p...

This was booked through our tour company as part of our comprehensive private tour of Vietnam. We spent three nights here and didn't have any of the problems already mentioned. Comfortable, good pool and eating breakfast by the river was cool and relaxing. However, if I went back I would book a hotel in the town of Hoi An, even though we had access to a regular shuttle into town. It would just be more convenient to walk into town whenever you wanted rather than wait for a shuttle. Didn't have any problems with accessing the internet in the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful but their rate of exchange for changing money was poor compared to the town.
