An Lam Retreat at Ninh Van Bay

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.

READ THIS REVIEW FIRST - The food is 1/5... an honest review, would not recommend

Tokyo Prefecture, Japan

This resort is in a wonderful location about 10-15 min by boat transfer (depending on the waves) after a 15 minute drive from Nha Trang. The facilities were great, the people where very kind and accommodating, the Spa was priced competitively so we went more often we would have at other places. We had the oceanfront villa that is a bit deceiving as you can't really swim in the ocean... there are large rocks and the water doesn't really reach the room unfortunately but you get great privacy from the other rooms. Doors did not have locks on them but we felt very safe in the resort. The pool was not heated so we never used it as it was too cold despite the 33 degree weather (not something I would be complaining about normally but considering we paid >$1000 per night it is fair to bring up). The large room and wonderful views which made up for most of this. We really wanted to like this place but downer to all of this is the quality of the food. When you are in an isolated resort and only get 1 option for food, you want it to be at least above average. Especially so when you can get an amazing meal for 2 for under $5 in Nha Trang. I think that most people reviewing this resort is being generous about the food. It was poor. Breakfast was the same you get at a average 3 star hotel. Despite seeing fresh fruits at the markets in town, the fruits were not ripe. You'd get just bad soups and the same meats that were there yesterday. Dinner & Room service menus were the exact same. No local fresh fish... the special one night was black cod from Canada...? Fried things were over fried, nothing really had flavor. If they fix the food, I think this resort would have a lot more visitors and would actually be able to compete with the Six senses/L'Alya resort next door. We picked this because of the no kids policy but considering they are building 3 multi-family villas and there will be kids soon they really make some positive changes there.

Excursions

You may be staying in a peaceful oasis, but that doesn't mean you will be short of things to do. There are lots of excursions and adventures which can be arranged for you by the resort. Take a city tour of Nha Trang, see how local Vietnamese people live on the countryside discovery tour or make a visit to a local market and purchase ingredients for a cooking class.

The striking design of the Sen Restaurant provides a focal point for the whole resort. During the day, this is a relaxed beach bar serving snacks and refreshing drinks. In the evening you can sample sophisticated Vietnamese and western dishes, or enjoy the teppanyaki open kitchen where the chefs enjoy putting on a culinary show.

The emphasis here is on cocktails. And with its elevated position, this is a truly beautiful spot to enjoy the views over Ninh Van Bay.
