Vietnam’s Princess d’Annam

 

The Three Empress Villas
The Three Empress Villas have views of Ke Ga Bay from the balcony.

 

It has been about a year since Princess d’Annam Resort & Spa opened in Vietnam’s Binh Thuan province, and the resort has already soared to the top of the country’s luxury list. When you’ve got post-colonial elegance mixed with modern amenities, people tend to take note.

The all-villa resort is on the shores of Ke Ga Bay in a region that has been dubbed the most dependably sunny region in Vietnam. It has 57 villas, the best of which, we hear, are the Empress Villas. These are two-floor residences with two or three bedrooms, private verandas and private infinity pools.

No doubt the hotel’s highlight is its 6,000-square-foot spa, housed in a century-old lighthouse. We love the design, which uses the space’s corridors and alcoves to create the ambiance of an Oriental village. There are 10 treatment rooms available, as well as two VIP Suites with Jacuzzis and views of the ocean.

The resort’s location puts it at the doorstep of some of Vietnam’s most engrossing attractions, including Hon Rom Beach and Dunes, Ta Cu Mountain, Cape Mui Ne and Phan Thiet Fish Market, among others. We also hear that the resort is in the process of constructing a new deepwater port with a luxury yacht marina.

For your well-heeled clients, look into the resort’s limited-time Flying High package, which includes a private helicopter shuttle to the resort from Saigon. Your clients will thank you: the drive to the resort from Saigon is around 100 miles. Guests of the package are also entitled to a stay in an Empress Villa and private dining options.
