We are a family of 2 under 40 adults and our 5-1/2 year old daughter Zahra. We love to travel thru Asia and find nice resorts to stay at on the beach with a nice pool but also close to town and local fare/markets.After much searching the internet for a nice place in Vietnam we came across the very new Boutique resort. I looked at places like Nha Trang and Phan Thiet but after a round of golf with a chap who thoroughly recommended the Palm Garden i started to look at the beach area of Hoi An. The Palm Garden rooms did not really suit our liking, that is we generally like a junior suite or bigger type of arrangement for more room and seperate area for our daughters rollaway. We had a terible time transfering fro Sing ti Ho Chi Mihn with a massive layover/cancellations of 4-5 hrs( tip if flying from Singapore to Danang fly silkair direct) and finally arived at hotel about 9.00pm. Usaul Asian check-in drink, sit down etc. then shown to room. We liked the room very much although it did have some quirkyness about it. Villa rooms will age/fair wear and tear very quickly. Liked the size of the villa, both master bedroom and twin bedroom good size. Fridge and laptop in master, nice touch to stay connected. Master bathroom had big tub with portable handheld nozzle and wc. Twin room had shower, which didn't have door but wasnt a big drama. Lounge/dinning area was nice but had no tv as they were in both bedrooms which we were ok with. Grass areah in front of the villas 2 balconys was great, enough room for me to practice lob shots!! Beach is not to bad for Asia area, can get nice and rough with prevailing winds. Nice unbrellas and chairs on beach and only 40meters back to pool. Pool is nice but for Asian resort standards not the biggest. Palm Garden has great pool for both adults and kids. We didnt mind the breakfast spread as we are not the biigest brekky eaters. We did eat at the restaraunt at night 3 times and found it excellent at all times. Great size servings with good service and good pricing even with taxes and service charges. We emptied both fridges in villa upon arrival and filled with local beers/drinks, found the shop/house directly out the front of hotel and 1st on left very helpful with drinks motorbike hire etc. There is a nice couple of local places to eat across the road from hotel which were good for something quick and cheap to eat. Hotel offers shuttle into town which was good. Alot of nice places to eat/drink in town and cheap to get taxi back to hotel. There was alot of restaraunts up the road to left of hotel maybe 1-1/5 kms upp road....numbered fro 1-10etc they were typical Asian type places on beach with good seafood/local food.
Overall we enjoyed our stay in villa 702, price maybe a touch dear but $300 USD a night should be base cost i feel. Danang/Hoi An is going to be the new hub of Asian travel soon. Alot of work at Danang airport and about 10,000 new rooms going up in beach area.
Ahh forgot to mention the golf......well how good is it. A new Colin Montomery liks style course was great and Greg Normans Danang Golf were both great to play. Meet Phil the manager from Danang golf and found a great to deal with. Nice clubhouse to have lunch with family at and great changerooms etc.
Went to Hanoi after Hoi An and stayed at Intercontinental Hanoi in Junior suite room and found that great. Very nive club room.
