L'Alyana Villas Ninh Van Bay
Ranked #6 of 214 Hotels in Nha Trang
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 January 2013

We stayed here in August 2012 for 4 nights and our experience from start to finish was just amazing.

Service - This was the first time in my life that I had a personal butler. He was very friendly, helpful and spoke excellent english (that´s not always a given in Vietnam). Although I have to admit that the idea of having a personal butler made me feel quite uncomfortable (I was raised to take care of my stuff myself), the actual experience was great. Think of your butler as a go-to-person in ANY case.

Value - You get what you pay for. It indeed was the most expensive place we stayed in Vietnam , but it was BY FAR the best place we stayed in. I don´t mind paying the extra-$ for such a great place.

Sleep Quality - It can´t be much quieter in a grave. Perfect! Though the beds were a little soft for me.

Cleanliness - As clean as such a place (in the heart of nature) can be. Yes there are some geckos in your room, but you can ask to have them removed if you find one. They didn´t bother us. We thought it was rather funny to have a little company in these huge villas.

Location - Breathtaking.

Rooms - Our Villa was absolutely fantastic. The design was lovely and made you feel at home right away. We didn´t get all of our butler´s explanations on how to use everything, because there was so much to see and so many details to awe you.

Spa - Wasn´t open yet, when we stayed. Didn´t bother us, looked nice from the outside.

Breakfast - What a way to start the day!! Everything was delicious - though you gotta ask for the "Vietnamese coffee". It´s out of this world!!

Our whole experience was mind-blowing and we would stay there again any time!!
HUGE shout-out to TJ& his amazing staff!

We have been here 2 nights and while we still have a few more nights to go, can't wait to talk about this stunning place! The staff cannot be more helpful and courteous and it starts from the time you step into their waiting area to take the boat to the secluded property. We are staying in a hill rock villa is a 3-level split villa in the rocks. The bed is the best we have slept in and you won't be short of anything. They have thought of it all!
Our butler, Luan (spelling?), discovered that I had turned a little yellow on the boat ride and was quiet through dinner, so he made special ginger tea for me as a nightcap!
Today we we for a private picnic in a private part of the island and it was so stunningly memorable, splashing in the sea, having a gourmet spread being laid out for you and a scenic boat ride back. Our guide, Ngyuen, was a young chap who seems to have so much knowledge of the island.
I have a very hectic work schedule, but the last 48 hours have eased it all and I am totally rejuvenated. It's my husband and my first time, but we are now Epikurean fans all the way!
Thank you guys!

After the frantic pace of negotiating the roads of Vietnam, we arrived at the An Lam Ninh Van Bay Villas which are on a small island a short boat ride from Nha Trang. We really needed the layback atmosphere here - from the attention we received as soon as we arrived, to the care of our private butler, and down to the food and ambience of the resort.
The water of the bay was wonderfully warm, as was the swimming pool. The breakfast and meals in the restaurant were nothing less than 5-star, as was the service. Part of our package included a beach bbq which made us feel like we were the most special people in the world. Candles had been placed in the sand, and it was a very romantic setting.
Our villa was simply fabulous - everything we could possibly want, including a wine fridge which we'd never seen in any hotel before. We had our own private pool too. If we go back to Vietnam, we will definitely stay here again. There is no entertainment here, so if you want a party venue, this isn't for you. It's complete relaxation, being pampered by the loveliest people in the world - the Vietnamese. They do it so well.
I don't think it would be suitable for wheelchairs as there is a lot of sand to negotiate, and the villas are way up in the trees. There may be some ground level villas around the lake, but overall, I wouldn't recommend it for wheelies. There are electric cars that can take guests around the complex if they wish.

Wow, wow & wow! The whole experience at An Lam was just amazing.

We were honeymooning for 3 weeks in Vietnam and An Lam was our little luxury in the middle of a busy wonderful holiday. As soon as we landed at Nha Trang airport the customer service was ten fold. Snacks & water in the car and then more snacks & drinks while waiting briefly for the jet boat ride to the resort.

We were greeted by management & our lovely butler Phong. He was just perfect! Perfectly polite & while we weren't too demanding (I hope), nothing was too much trouble. He truly made us feel special, every day & every night. We were upgraded to a lagoon villa which was a lovely surprise & just amazing. All the staff we met were fabulous, friendly and so eager to please - in particular, Tam, Hang, Ly in the restaurant.

All the activities we did were just lovely. Destination dinner being our favourite. Bring your empty tummies!!!

I was worried I would get bored at a resort so remote, but wrong I was. There is SO much to do, but funnily enough, was oh so content doing as much of nothing & relaxing as I could!

I can't speak highly enough of this resort. It really was a very reasonable piece of luxury in the middle of an amazing holiday in Vietnam. I will be recommending this resort to everyone I can. Keep up the good work. And thank you for having us!

We stayed for 3 nights on the last week of our 3 week honeymoon trip through Vietnam. Definitely the highlight of our trip. Our personal butler Mai was more than willing to do anything she could to make our stay as indulging in good living as possible. Our beach villa 3 was amazing with every comfort and aspect making our stay very memorable. Thanks An Lam team and especially Mai! We were very busy relaxing as they say!

This place is amazing. My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and we absolutely loved it. Service was amazing - the best we have ever had. Staff could not be more friendly but also do not pester or bother you. The size of the complex is perfect you get the feeling you will never be overrun with people. The rooms are devine and tranquil and the resort itself is devine. The romantic spaces you can dine, so many different options and staff and your butler are wanting to make your stay something to remember. For us this was bliss and an experience we will never forget - Lei was amazing, we heard rave reports of TJ and had great chats with Briony 'chef' - the food is absolutely amazing!
This place has to be seen to be believed.
We are already planning our next trip back here - we will also look for the Epikurean name in the future as this was dreams are made of.
Could not fault it.

Room Tip: Don't think there is a bad one there - we had a pool villa with ocean views.

This is one of the most beautiful places I have stayed. If you are looking for total relaxation, this is the place. Gorgeous beaches, pool in villa is a must!

The location is very far from town and only accessible by boat. They have a couple of courtesy boats per day but if you miss these, you have to pay and it's not cheap! If you are looking for busy nightlife, this is not the place for you.

We ate a couple of meals here, they were lovely. we were given a free romantic beach bbq which I fully recommend. Breakfast was not included so we didn't sample.

The only problem being so isolated is that you must eat and drink at their facilities. again, these are not cheap - what you'd expect from a 5 star resort of thie quality however. The service is excellent, the head chef came out to meet us personally - nice touch.

In short, I'd recommend this resort for a few nights to chill out.
