Angsana Lang Co, Vietnam: An Unspoiled Paradise
Vietnam with its rich cultural history, natural beauty and exemplary local cuisine, is not surprising fast becoming a go-to spot for those who are still in possession of their sense of adventure. Nestled in between Da Nang and Hue in central Vietnam, the all pool villa resort in Lang Co Bay offers the perfect spot to enjoy all that the relatively untouched region has to offer.
The design of the hotel has taken care to infuse vibrant Vietnamese decorative elements and contemporary chic offering the perfect location for a anytime-holiday. Nothing can describe the sheer bliss of relaxing in your personal balcony pool while overlooking spectacular views of the East Sea and the magnificent Truong Son mountain range. The area is still very under-developed with just Angsana and its sister hotel Banyan Tree situated on the bay, so nothing can obstruct your view!
Angsana is placed between 3 UNESCO world heritage sites; the imperial city of Hue, the old town of Hoi An and the historical ruins of My Son. Their helpful staff are always on hand to offer recommendations and bespoke tours with knowledgeable and helpful tour guides.
The stunningly beauty location is also great to explore the nature trails, beaches and mountains on your own! While you are exploring the local area, keep an eye out for the famous Linh Ung Pagoda with a 24-metre-high white seated Buddha – its presence is hard to miss!
When you are not off exploring everything Vietnam has to offer, Angsana has more than enough to keep you content! In addition to your personal pool, the resort possesses a fantastic communal pool area, private beach, beautiful spa with an exhaustive selection of treatments or for the more active, a fully equipped gym, water sports center and an 18 hole golf course designed by Nick Faldo.
Angsana has 3 resort restaurants. Market Place, which specializes in an indo-chinese menu, and Rice Bowl, and Moomba which offers traditional Vietnamese cuisine with a focus on the freshest seafood while overlooking the pristine beach.
As you would expect from its location, fishing is a pivotal part of the local community and as part of Angsana’s commitment to preserving tradition, they offer guests a unique ‘fisherman for the day’ experience. During this you learn the traditional practices from local fisherman in Lang Co bay, where they teach you how to master the round basket boats that are specific to the region.
Karaoke is a national pastime in Vietnam and cannot be neglected on your visit! If strolling round the packed streets of any of the neighboring towns you are likely to run into the age-old entertainment.
The resort itself has its very own lagoon that connects Angsana and its sister hotel Banyan Tree a traditional barge is used for getting between the two – be sure to ask reception to organize a boat transfer for you. Although it’s a short distance between the two properties, the journey itself is pretty special and not to be missed!
