Van Lan Riviera Villas
Ranked #68 of 224 Specialty Lodging in Hoi An
Reviewed April 10, 2014

I recently stayed at Van Lan Villas with my wife, mother and mother in law. I was incredibly impressed by the way the small group of staff greeted us and treated us so well during our stay. I live and work in Vietnam and I have stayed in a lot of similar properties. The attention to our well-being and relaxed atmosphere was really lovely. I will be returning to Van Lan as soon as possible.

If you are looking for a hotel that is outside of the now overcrowded centre of Hoi An, try this place. It is delightful. I cannot wait to stay there for longer next time.

Room Tip: The upper room in the villa is great for a couple, I believe the villas have two double rooms.

My daughter and I booked a two bedroom villa as this was the only one available for the dates of our stay. We could see why this property is so popular. The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are nicely decorated with a vast range of features available. These were kept very clean and tidy. We found the location to be ideal - its position outside the main town of Hoi An guaranteed less chaos and eating breadfast by the riverside is idyllic. I found there was a bit of noise from the smallholding behind our villa in the early hours of the morning, but this wasn't the fault of the hotel.

As a family of 6 it's sometimes complicated getting accommodation that suits. We had a lovely villa with two levels and balconies. The manager is amazing and will do everything to make your stay comfortable, interesting and happy. If you are looking for somewhere well priced and clean with charm this is the spot. Some minor improvements could be made to fixtures but for the price you just won't get better. The biggest charm is the amazing manager and the relaxed feel about the place. Plus the kids loved the pool and made lots of friends.

Stayed: February 2014

Sorry for the belated review. I traveled with a friend and we had booked the 2 bedroom villa during TET for 6 nights. It was my Birthday the day we arrived and the staff secretly had arranged a birthday cake (thanks Thuan and Van) . We had had some correspondence prior to our arrival so it already felt like we were going to be meeting friends and it was. Everything about this villa was perfect but the staff made it a joy. They welcomed us with openness and included us in all of the TET celebrations. Thuan taught me how to speak Vietnamese and make spring rolls Hoi An style and much more. The cleaning staff just as friendly and learning English. Van Lan Riviera is in between the town and the beach which was a perfect setting for me as it was in the heart of of semi rural Hoi An -the part I loved the most. This place is an oasis.

The Van Lan Riviera Villas is a real find, a jewel of a property just a mile or so from downtown Hoi An, but a world away from all the mix of tourist traffic and aggressive vendors found there. Several well-appointed villas are placed around a jewel of a small swimming pool, which became the perfect hang out after a busy day sightseeing or shopping the Hoi An scene. Set along a small river, our experience began with the most lovely and efficient staff under the upbeat managment of Mr. Duon. Both Thinh and Luan took great care of us, offering suggestions and arranging anything we desired: cars to the ruins at My Son, tailoring tips and sites to see. Bikes are free, and the property is well-mapped with plenty of street signs to guide you back out to its beautiful setting in the nearby paddies. The villas themselves are stylish and well-appointed with ample AC, kitchen facilities, hand-washed laundry and a well-stocked minibar with cold cheap LaRue Beer. We had wonderful Vietnamese chicken "pho" for breakfast with excellent coffee, before striking out to a cooking class one day, shopping another and sight-seeing on the third day. Would recommend the Van Lan Riviera Villas to anyone who wants to get off the beaten path, but not too far off.

Room Tip: Choose a villa based on the size of your party.

The perfect location away from the nagging husstle-bustle of town, is a litlle hard to find at first however is a real gem, that will not disappiont.
We chickened out and hired a scooter for four days but bikes are free to use, the roads around this Hotel make it great for either biking or walking.
The staff and appartments are the best you will find in Hoi An, this is no secret.
Mr Phong is a wiz at getting things done and is always on hand to help, the quiet atmosphere coupled with the calmness of Camh Thanh village will make your visit one to remember, all within three short minutes from town. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: All rooms are good..!!

Fantastic location at the river in the countryside, only 5 minutes by bike from the center of Hoi An. The manager and the rest of the staff was really kind and helpful, making our stay very enjoyable. The lodges were clean and nice. The swimmingpool was great. I hope to come back some day. I can highly recommend this great place.
