We ended up staying in Da Nang after our travel plans went a bit awry and, after a stay in a cheap place off China Beach my sister and I hired a moped and came across Son Tra resort. We dropped in on the off chance of somewhere to stay on our last night in the area and the receptionist was amazingly helpful. She spoke excellent English and offered us a sea view villa for the price of an ocean view villa and further discounted it as there were only 2 of us staying.
We couldn't have asked for more - huge space inside the villa with all modcons and the view was breathtaking - right over China Beach and the giant Buddah on Monkey Mountain. The private pool was a bonus and we pretty much had the beach to ourselves (possibly down to the fact that it wasn't overly sunny). We did think that the discounts were due to the resort being fairly vacant but the next day at breakfast there were quite a few people there. Speaking of, this was one of the best breakfasts we'd experienced in Vietnam with a huge choice of pretty much anything you can think of.
We'd originally tried to get into another resort on Monkey Mountain but were so glad that they were rude enough to make us move on and find this place. It was a one-off luxury that most travellers won't justify spending out on but for one night of comfort and luxury we thought it was definitely worth it!
