Intimate adults only resort

The An Lam Retreat at Ninh Van Bay is set in a secluded position between lush jungle and a soft, powdery beach. Tucked away on a secluded peninsula, this adult’s only property is only accessible by boat. There are just 34 stand-alone villas – all unique in their design. The main focal point of the resort is the spectacular Sen Restaurant. This iconic lotus like building is a relaxed dining venue by day, and a chic enchanting restaurant by night.

Ideal for couples and honeymooners or for anyone who really wants to a peaceful place to unwind and relax. The friendly and welcoming staff pride themselves on making sure you have everything you need for a memorable stay, this will be most important to your personal butler who will serve you with discretion and intuition.

Located away from the beach is the Jungle Spa, where you may choose from an extensive menu of wonderful treatments. Each treatment room is partially open to the elements, so you will hear birdsong and the nearby stream as your stresses fall away.

Wonderful experience

We stayed at this resort for 3 nights for my birthday celebration and had a truly wonderful experience. Our butler Thy was outstanding - very friendly, helpful and professional. We stayed at the TreeTop villa which offers a great panoramic view with more privacy. We had a little issue at the restaurant the first day but it was quickly resolved by the management. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience and we hope to come back again for more relaxing & quiet time.

A little bit of paradise ,,,,,we want to return!

Windsor, United Kingdom

If you want noise, night life, chaos and people all around you, then An Lam is most certainly not for you. If you desire peace, tranquility , the opportunity to relax totally then ring your travel agent. We left the UK in need of an oasis of calm and tranquility to be able to relax and recharge batteries. My husband exhausted and stressed from work ......we both looked washed out. The moment the boat brought us to An Lam we started on the road of restoration to ourselves physically and mentally. We were greeted by 3 members of staff..and after a welcome drink we were taken to our Beach Pool Villa... No waiting for passport checks etc. and being told that the room is not ready. .. The villa is.a simply gorgeous sanctuary......Wonderful view, beautiful garden and pool with comfortable sun loungers and sofas......The bathroom just divine.......very large, beautifully arranged with a fabulous wooden bath....plus shower...Lots of wardrobe space....Ladies you will love it......Bedroom again large ...with chairs, sofa and everything that one requires. What we were needing from An Lam was peace, tranquility for me to read books that I never find time for...My husband wanted to visit the Spa.yes him not me!!! This we fulfilled ...I read 6 books..lying on a sun lounger on the beach.....The beach is not enormous but perfect......we would walk down at 7.00 am and spent an hour just looking out to the sea..the best time ever.....with a feeling of being blessed just to be there. We then went for breakfast.......so much on offer ....Sometimes buffet style, other times a la carte......but always fresh and tempting. The hours would pass, and the days would pass and one started to dread the day of departure as we felt that each day we were feeling that the batteries were being recharged , my husband felt that he was reborn and the stress and tiredness had faded ....... We enjoyed seeing the sunset with a few drinks at Happy Hour.....we loved our dinners under the stars ..enjoying the various different foods...... we got into a routine which suited us and each day was a total gift. The staff are extremely friendly ...and endeavour to make your time at An Lam memorable and special. Our butler Hanh was always around to assist us if needed with a smile and great sensitivity...her bringing aloe Vera to us on the beach for sunburn......massaging it onto our skins......perfection. Diem ...who was in the restaurant and bar....doing her utmost to make each meal and each drink a unique special time....... My husband was extremely impressed with the Spa....Vv assisted in the programming of his treatments she was extremely efficient and skilful. The treatments he said were totally brilliant. The retreat is unique and it is to be said that a great deal is due to the General Manager Barry Yaxley....he is the eyes and ears of the retreat.....he is constantly aiming to improve and if something is not just right he tries to relay to the staff how it needs to be. Never an easy job. His input is vital and just by being at the resort for 10 days one could see the brilliant job he is doing and achieving. The type of places need to continue on a perfect management but at the same time giving the impression of being very laid back..there is a fine dividing line and that is fundamental. Thoughts that you remember,,the carved wooden plaque that appears outside your villa with your names...... a wonderful souvenir to bring home ...... The smiles of staff.......The cleanliness of the villa's and how the villa's are always cleaned and in the evening always attended to tidy and prepare.....not once did this not happen.....something that occurs in many establishments......... Glorious views, beautiful plants, stunning flowers. and trees............Fabulous accommodation, Super amenities.......Total calmness..........Superb RELAXATION..... We want to return.......
