AVANI Quy Nhon Resort & Spa
Ranked #1 of 18 Hotels in Quy Nhon
Reviewed April 1, 2012

Absolutely 1 of the most secluded and beautiful locations we've come across in all of Vietnam. Quy Nhon is a non-descipt city, not regarded as a tourist destination such as Nha Trang, Phan Tiet or Hoi An, however this little gem of a resort is the perfect hideaway without the usual tourist paraphenalia that so often ruin many places here. The resort itself has it's own private beach, where if you come across another person it is very unusual, it has a beautiful spa with open-air treatment rooms with unobstructed views to the ocean, yoga classes for the more fitness minded plus a beautifully clean circular outdoor pool overlooking the beach. They do organise a few trips including a short hop to the island opposite in the very traditional circular fishing boats, but apart from that there is little to do here as you are at least 20 minutes by taxi from the city-not that there is much to do in the city anyway as there are so few tourists. Rooms are tired but quirky; we liked the open plan design with huge floor to ceiling doors opening onto a nice balcony where we sat for many hours reading a book and supping some good quality (but expensive) wines, the bathroom had a powerful shower and that also overlooked the beach which made the whole room very bright and airy. With a bit of money spent the whole room would feel so much better as the wood and tiling was old and had a dirty feel to it. Food wise was a mixture; we liked the freshly cooked mixed veggies, vermicelli and beansprouts for breakfast, decent local eggs and also a good selection of local preserves, Dinner was a bit of hit and miss, chicken with ginger had good flavor but the local meat was stringy and tasteless and the seabass rubbed with cumin and ginger was not as fresh as we had in the city the day before. Very good quality Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley perfectly chilled and served in top quality glasses. Shame we did not have WIFI in the room, as also the desktop connection in the lobby was very slow. TV selection was very poor, as was the picture quality. What we did really appreciate was the helpful and friendly nature of the Manager Trevor and the staff-yes there were a few "lost in translation" moments but this was more than made up for by the willingness of the staff to go out of their way to help us enjoy our stay. With a little bit of support and investment from the owners it could be an absolutely stunning place, not necessarily for a long stay but certainly for a weekend break or a 4 day midweek special-just come prepared with some books, I-pad, a sense of humour and a real desire to experience a part of unspoit Vietnam before the masses arrive.

Amazing stay. rooms have amazing views. the service is great and the staff are so friendly! one of the staff (waitress) even went out of her way to show us (and another couple) around quy nhon city and the local markets. the food is yummy! and if you are craving a little bit of home, their pasta dishes and french fries are perfect. their breakfast buffet is AWESOME, accomodating all taste buds! from asian soups and dishes, muffins, pastries, toast, bacon eggs, , 10 different fresh fruits to choose from everyday and the list goes on. and all the food is fresh. various freshly squeezed juices aswell to choose from (except the bottled apple juice). the life spa is great! little bit over priced but comparing back to aussie prices, it is still half the price! and it is perfectly situated with great views while receiving massages! there were small areas under construction but that did not affect the overall views. we had an amazing room which was on the top floor (high ceiling), however the reception is so spacious and comfy (with a bar, pool table, books, games) me and my boyfiend hung out there among the Vietnamese staff which were more than happy to talk to us and answer our questions about vietnam. i left a shoe in the room and only realised when we arrived in Da Nang, they were more than happy to post the shoe, free of charge

Overall, this resort is an amazing place for an escape from the hussle and bussle. Nothing was left to chance, everything was done to assure that our stay was perfect. from service to facilities.

Will be returning as much as possible!

Room Tip: get the high ceiling rooms on the top level if you have the funds :)

very nice quiet break and rest place. but a bit sterile.
the evening food was poor, and there are no other options. you have to eat here , town is too far away. snack items good.
the management seem to be trying their best, and staff are genuinely nice and helpful.... but staff training is needed to help them understand what a 4* resort customer is looking for.

Room Tip: ask for a top floor room. more privacy and good views.

We were not blessed with good weather; in fact the wind howled and the sea was really rough. However, as we were there for only one night the weather did not deter us from relaxing, having a very good massage at the beautiful spa, and eating well. The manager, Trevor, is welcoming and informative, and seems genuinely committed to ensuring that his guests are comfortable. On our last day he directed us to a seafood restaurant in the town; he arranged transportation and gave us Vietnamese translations of what we should order. The meal wasoutstanding, one of the best we have had in our three years in Vietnam. The downsideswere the beds ( a little hard) and the pricey airport transport. We will go back, in good weather, to enjoy the gorgeous beach setting and lovely, untouristy countryside.

We found Life Wellness Resort quite accidentally, and planned to stay only 2 days, but after spending a day there decided that we had come to Vietnam for exactly this. A room that was absolutely beautiful, the sunken tub, the absolutely stunning view of a private beach (right from the tub) and the sound of the surf lulling us to sleep. Everything was perfect! So we extended our stay, and we are so glad we did!! The manager Trevor was so helpful to us every convenience at our finger tips, and thankfully so.... as we sold our house during our stay, and it went off without a hitch, even with a 15 hour time difference. We would recommend a stay here to anybody its absolutely perfect!

Room Tip: Go for the Jr suite

This resort is in middle of nowhere, next to what used to be a small fishing village (I assume...) and it's truly a miracle that such a charming place exists in this area.

If you want to go to a beach resort surrounded by nice expat bars and restaurants with 100% English speaking staff, you should choose Nha Trang or Da Nang, but if you want to be in a natural environment and away from it all, you can choose to come here.

I would imagine hiring and keeping English speaking hospitality-trained staffs would be extremely difficult here, but it's not like they cannot speak or understand you at all. Most of the staffs were pleasant and helpful.

Unfortunately, the weather was not good during our stay here, so we were stuck in our room. We went to the spa and I had the tea/sea salt scrub and because the tea that they used was so hard, it left small scratches on my legs - they should check and do something about that.

Highly recommend if you want to spend a quite, quality time with your family and/or friends.

Room Tip: The rooms on the 1F have bath tubs, but the rooms on 2F do not (but have a great view of the ocean...

Last of the places we stayed at in Vietnam. Its a place that clearly has seen better days- and in a way could be an amazing hotel. Great spot, with a rugged private beach. Secluded. Very nice spa with good treatments and very professionally run. Staff are friendly, and they do try. But the details let it down:-
i) As previous contributors point out, the mattresses are terrible. I coped, my wife didn't. One shouldn't have to "cope" on holiday- very difficult to sleep ii) Rooms are tired, clearly need a refurb- neither modern nor retro chic. Tiles are dirty etc, wouldn't take much effort to do this though iii) Staff need some training in English, especially front desk staff. Basically everyone is friendly enough when you ask for something, but are not proactive iv) Weather in December is terrible- its actually a bit cold, and rainy- so using the beach is tough. THere is nothing around the resort. Which means they should try to provide some alternative entertainment- a few more board games would be nice for example.Also why they don't provide a shuttle maybe even twice a day would do - is beyond me v) The Yoga classes were held in the hair-dressing salon which was old and moldy. We gave up after two days vi) No wifi or internet of any sort in the rooms vii) The TV kept freezing up, with terrible reception- there are only 3 viable English channels (BBC, Star Movies and HBO)- of which 1 wasn't working properly at any one time. You have to rent a DVD player for US10 a day.
We leave tomorrow- and probably 5 nights here is plenty given the lack of entertainment. As I said- could be a great hotel if you didn't feel like you were "nickel-and-dimed" all the time.

Room Tip: Don't go for the superior or deluxe rooms- go for junior suite if you can afford it.
