In common with several other luxury hotels in the region, the beds have a wooden surround which is a Vietnamese design feature – good to look at, although your shins might disagree!
The beach here at Princess d’Annam really has to be emphaised – a stunning two mile strand of soft sand. It is the perfect place for power walks, either to the historic lighthouse to your left or to the towering white sand dunes to the right. Time it to coincide with the local fisherman bringing their catch onto shore, and don’t forget to take your camera!
Chic Check – Princess d’Annam Resort and Spa is a real hide and chic top class retreat. It is wonderfully isolated with little else in the immediate area, so you just enjoy the spacious and comfortable accommodation, the attractive grounds and gardens, the superb beach and the fantastic staff, and of course each other. Without doubt one of the finest hotels in the region, just as long as you are not looking for shops and nightlife on your doorstep. It is romantic, a perfect place to just spend your days doing very little, total relaxation.
This area is one of the driest in the region. The most popular months are December to April when the days are usually bright and sunny. In the summer you do get slightly more rainfall in short heavy showers but not enough to detract.
The journey from Saigon will take just over 4 hours on a slow road transfer. Not ideal but think of the advantages – maybe because of the transfer time many of the major hotel investors have so far ignored this area, so it remains wonderfully unspoilt. If the access was any easier, you would probably have 20 hotels on a 2 mile beach front, at the moment you have one!
