“Lovely Oasis in Hoi An”
Reviewed 13 July 2011

We stayed 2 nights in Villa Hoa Su Franginani. Villa Hoa Su is about the half way between Qua Dai Beach and Hoi An Town. It is by the river and very quiet. The owner, Mr. Bond is such a nice man. The room is a little bit dark but nice big bed right in the middle of the room. There was a big bathtub in the backyard as well. We rented a motor bike at the villa for 2 days and rode to town while our stay with a couple of US dollars. It is more like a bed and breakfast than hotel/villa but very pleasant. If you look for something unique then Villa Hoa Sue is highly recommended. The breakfast can be improved by adding more variety though. However we enjoyed chilling out at the villa. Mr. Bond, thank you so much for your hospitality! Ian and Chiharu

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and this was to be the 'bit of luxury' in our trip. We were picked up from the airport which was great and we received a warm welcome on arrival. The location is quiet (except during the day when someone nearby used an electric saw frequently) and its a short taxi ride to Hoi An. There are bikes there which we used one day to ride to the beach which was fun.
The rooms are lovely but lacked soap, shampoo, hair dryer etc that you would expect at $75 a night. One of the towels was threadbare and had a tear that had been repaired. The curtain in our room wouldn't open but there was no attempt to repair it while we were there.
The beds are very firm so be prepared!
We felt that the basic management and service was lacking when we were there. We saw the owner for about 5 mins one day and the rest of the time we couldn't really find anyone. One afternoon when we returned there seemed to be a group of friends who were staying there having a great time and the person who was managing was partying with them. When another guest asked them to turn down the music because it had just woken him, the response was almost bordering on being rude. It did seem to be a private party and we ended up showering and going back into town.
We wanted to love this place and it does have some wonderful features and a beautiful setting but we felt that it wasn't value for money. All of the 3 star hotels we stayed in during the rest of our holiday in Vietnam had far better breakfasts, amenities and service. We stayed in Hoi An for one extra night but we moved to a small hotel with a pool, friendly staff, lovely room and it was $30 a night cheaper!

Stayed at Hoa Su with a family (children 11,12,13) who all loved the place. Great service in peaceful surroundings even if a little inconvenient to get to town. Nothing is too much for the very attentive staff. Highly recommended.

My husband and I spent 4 nights in this beautiful hotel in April, it was a highlight in our trip to Vietnam. The rooms are beautiful light and airy, bed huge and very comfortable and the outdoor bath and shower are to die for, we did not even use the indoor shower which looked out over the private garden. Ever thing about the Villa Hua Su is beautiful from the lush and colourful gardens to the ponds and lovely pool. The staff are fantastic and very friendly they go out of their way to helpyou, organise taxi's into town, bikes to ride into town and the beach and serve lovely fresh breakfasts which you order what ever you like in sitting amongst the gardensand ponds. This hotel is small and very quiet and only a cheap taxi fare into town at night, we rode our bikes to the beach ( not as good as the pool at the hotel) and into town during the day. I would reccomend to Villa Hua Su to anyone wanting to stay in quiet paradise in Hoi An in of the best hotels we have ever stayed in all our travel around the world.

Tranquil, relaxing, blissful and perfect for a quiet break amidst the high energy ride of a visit to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.

A delightful place to rest, relax and recharge your batteries. Great service all round and very friendly, personable staff that will soon become your friends. The luxury rooms are fantastic - huge bed; light, airy and spacious rooms; clean, tidy and well thought out shower, toilet and sink areas, and best of all the outside bath and second shower with huge head.

Leave the room and venture out into the communal area and find a picture perfect scene of large shady central area, complete with multiple fans, tables, chair, comfy lounge areas and internet. Here's where you'll be served a great breakfast in the morning - perfect to set you up for the day, and for $10 you can have a feast of a meal in the evening (skip lunch or you won't be able to eat it all!). The shady central area is surrounded by an exquisite lotus pond, complete with numerous fish and adds to the feeling of total relaxation. Adjoining the lotus pond is a bathlike swimming pool; bathlike because it is so warm you could easily spend all day paddling around. If you can haul yourself out then the accompanying sunloungers are right next to it, so bring a book and dig in.

Free pedal bike loan means you can cycle into Hoi An village itself, or venture to the beach, or indeed just head out and explore the surrounding countryside. Village and beach both take 10 mins max and it's flat riding all the way, with very little traffic to contend with. Not up to peddling, they have mopeds to hire too and if it all seems too much hassle they'll call you a taxi which will arrive in a couple of minutes and cost a couple of dollars to go to the village.

We stayed three days and tried to extend our stay to a week we were having such a great time. Unfortunately with only five rooms they were already booked up. We'll definitely be heading back here when we visit Cambodia and Laos in a year or two. Great very for money and a great tonic for the soul.

Villa Hua Su is a spectacularly beautiful hotel. I checked in at night and woke up to Paradise. It is much prettier than the photos on the website. Most of the property is a large water garden, with Lotus flowers, lilies and fragrant frangipani. In the middle they have a dining/lounge area and pool, both of which are surrounded by this garden. There is such a warm, tranquil feeling about this place. With only 5 rooms, you get wonderful personalized service. They use an exercise book to keep track of your account! How quaint is that? The outdoor shower and bath were lovely, but I wish they had more hot water. I ordered dinner one night which was delicious. I got stir fried shrimp, morning glory, fish clay pot and grilled eggplant for $10! They also have a decent wine selection with very reasonable prices. Breakfast is included but not always the greatest. Stick to the western breakfast but skip the pancakes unless Li gets a better recipe and some syrup. Nothing that would be a deal breaker, but just a few things that they could do better. All in all, I highly recommend them and would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Book directly with the hotel.

I really enjoyed the stay at Villa Hoa Su and would highly recommend the villa for those who want to relax during a stay in Vietnam or for a week end outside Saigon. The garden and the swimming pool are stunning.
You will enjoy simple breakfast on the terrase. The rooms are great, and the outside bath is super romantic.
Bikes are available and the villa is located right between the beach and the city of Hoi An (10 to 15 minutes ride).
Though, if you look for a place with animation and restaurants close by, this is not the place for you.
