“Fantastic find”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Our whole experience at Van Lan was exceptional. I was excited to find this type of accomodation in Vietnam as it is not common and from the moment we arrived I was impressed by the very high standard of the villas. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom 2 story villas with our 2 children which had ample space including storage space so it really felt like home for the two weeks we were there. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms modern and very clean - the kitchen looked great although it didn't get much use as we were too busy enjoying the local cuisine! The staff were lovely providing us with great breakfasts everyday (loved the beef curry), were great with the kids even fitting seats on the backs of the bikes for us and generally being fabulous. If your considering Van Lan - go for it!

Stayed August 2013, traveled with family

We recently celebrated a family member's birthday with family from UK and Australia. We rented all the villas with 9 adults and 4 children aged 8, 4 and 2 years. What a lucky find!! The villas are large and well equipped, the breakfast was great and we cannot praise the staff enough, we were treated like family. The free loan bikes were great and we took advantage of these to ride into Hoi An village, the beach,restuarants and shops and markets. The kids loved the pool and since our group had the run of the place we could play games and have swimming races without upsetting other guests. Some of the family from UK are seriously thinking of returning next year. We have no hesitation in recommending the Van Lan Riviera Villas to other travellers.

We arrived to Van Lan, after surviving the torment of a slow taxi ride from Da nang , and as mentioned in previous posts , it is difficult to locate as it is tucked away from the hustle of old Hoi An , fortunately the cab driver called a friend to direct him to our destination . Once we arrived we were greeted with welcoming smiles, and a 2 bedroom villa , that surprised and delighted us all, clean , well stocked with drinks , soft and alcoholic , comfortable beds, pillows , and 3 air conditioners to cool each room. Not a large establishment , so the service each day was excellent, breakfast by the river each day was a delight, free wifi in the rooms , and around the ( not small ) pool was a bonus, and never had any difficulty what so ever.Water taxi at the gate. quite location Devine. So pleased with the place ,,, we will return. Thank you to all the staff that made our stay ,,,, PARADISE..

Room Tip: We stayed in the Emerald Villa . Catch the Hoi An bus from Da Nang airport, much faster and less exp...

We really enjoyed our week at Van Lan. The highlights were the huge villas, swimming pool and the serene river setting. The villas really suited us as we have two small children. They are light and bright and have a fully equipped kitchen. Our host Nga was exceptional, as well as all the staff onsite. They always went out of their way to help us with anything. As we have small children we had to travel around using the taxis. These were mostly easy to get, however there were a few times we had to wait up to 30 mins. We ate in the villas quite a lot and the food was ok- could be an area worked on :) and as i am a light sleeper i was woken early by the roosters and the power generated. But overall a really lovely place to stay.
We would happily recommend Van Lan to others.

We were relocated to this property when our original lodging in town did not have enough rooms for my family. We were very glad we were! We were a little concerned as we drove through Hoi An village and then off the beaten path a ways, as the town looked like a great place to stay with so much to do. However, when we saw the attractive grounds and our two story villa next to the swimming pool we knew the short distance to town would be worth it. The villa was beautiful, with a large room and bath downstairs off the small kitchen and sitting/dining area and a very large master bedroom suite upstairs with a large sitting area, bath and balconies off the front and side of the unit with nice views of the countryside.

The staff was simply outstanding. They were extremely friendly and helpful and almost felt like family as much as staff! They arranged several tours for us, and did everything they could to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The daily hot breakfast was great -- we highly recommend the beef stew, something we would not normally think of for breakfast but which was delicious -- even the kids enjoyed it! It was very relaxing to sit out near the river bank and just enjoy the sights and sounds each morning.

The Villas loan out free bicycles that are great for getting into town about 10 mins away. We also took a boat trip down the river right across from the Villas. If you need to be right in town this isn't for you, but if you like having some quiet at night and don't mind a short bike ride each day to get into town (which we really enjoyed) we highly recommend it.

The van lan consists of five small villas that surround a most charming yet small swimming pool in a flowering garden. The villas are beautifully designed with triangular roofs. The Van Lan sits upon a stream, with metal tables and chairs waiting for you to enjoy breakfast on or a cold beer at the end of the day. It's less than ten minutes on a bicycle from the center of Hoi An and the resort gives you complementary bikes. You can also take a boat or taxi to town. The villas are ideal both for couples and families as they have different sizes. The staff were all kind, helping and English speaking and went out of their way to make our stay perfect. We forgot our purse in the hotel and they sent it to us express to Dalat. Highly recommended and great value for money. Thank you Lex and all the staff!

This is a new hotel in Hoi An, just a short bike ride to the downtown area. The rooms are beautiful and the staff wonderfully accommodating. It has very peaceful and relaxing ambiance, surrounded by lush plants. I stayed here with my twenty-five year old daughter and we both would love to come back to this hotel. It is perfect for families since there are kitchens in each unit with pots and pans for cooking small meals. The complimentary breakfast is excellent, especially the curry! Much to do in Hoi An and the best way to get around is on bicycles, which this hotel provided for free!
Only downside - hard for taxi driver to find. I suggest you mention to the driver that it is a very new hotel, or perhaps contact the hotel prior to arrival to see if you can arrange a pickup (they offered us a ride back to the airport for cheaper than we got to Hoi An for)

We update our villas for Hoi An's taxi and we believe they know us, but in Da nang or other place, some agencies's taxi know us, maybe you contact with us before you come for serve pick up will better.

Best regards and look forward to a visit next trip to Hoi An.
