... hotels all along the front some with a 5 star rating. Beach looks lovely. There are little cyclo (trikes) that will take you around and you pay the driver by the hour, only 1 passenger at a time, there is a cable car that crosses the bay to an island. There is a large resort on the island with a big hotel complex. Honestly it could be paradise!!! There are lots of people wanting to sell their wares but they usually move on when you say no. I'm glad to say that so far ...
... ll be able to shed some light on it I'm sure! I'd promised Amelia a trip to the infamous sailing club for a hang on to your hat night of jam jars on the beach and a party that would put Pacha to shame. But hang on, what's this? Uniformed staff, table service, no partied out bodies falling out of the door? The sailing club seems to have gone very middle class, another victim of the affluent local economy. Back to earth with a bang though when a rather portly 50 ...
... catch a few waves. We then sorta realised **** and looked how far the shack seemed to be in relation to us and the current was sooo strong we were pretty much drifting out and sideways - was very nearly panic stations, In fact I think it was. We both sorta looked at each other and was like yeh we need to swim and pretty dam hard, it felt like we weren't getting anywhere but luckily we got through it, definitely an experience!
We got out and ...
... the islands, the driver said it costs $25 per person just for the tram. Too bad, it would have been a 12 minute ride across the ocean on the worlds longest oversea hanging tram, but at that price it was too much, that may have only been one way as well.
The driver returned us back to our hotel and we found a little place to eat, i had a delicious chicken parm for under $5. Back at the hotel we inquired about ...
... the excellent instruction and support from my teachers, Kara Pohl from Morden and her boyfriend Kanthin.
We practiced holding our breath in the classroom before we went into the water. On Day 1 I was so anxious I could only hold my breath for 1 minute 40 seconds - the shortest time in the class. On Day 2, I practiced progressive muscle relaxation and 'Savasana' while holding my breath and was able to go ...

Honey Moon in Vietnam
I´m portuguese and I´ve been at this fantastic resort in last September on the last days of my honey moon.
We´ve spent great moments and it was very relaxing.
People were very nice and gentil, food in Vietnam was the best I ever tryed, places we´ve been were amasing, ....
Maby we´ll come back one day....
I did stay in this haven in August last year, with friends of mine, 2 Nights. All begins on the mainland, a small tender comes and pick you up, the service starts from there...sodas, fresh water, towels. Once you arrive on the island (which by the way is not); the welcome is sincere and not fake, your "private butler" comes to greet you and (the "detail", she learnt a few words french in order to help us ! This is a real "must"). We did stay in a spa villa on the hill ; the rooms are very nice, all material used to built the hotel are local ( wood, fabrics.. ). The private pool was outstanding, you were overlooking the resort and sea...There is nothing bad to say about this resort, everything is well thought(the time difference applied when you arrive, which gives you the feeling to enjoy more your stay, even if the main reason is certainly to save electricity power ).
The setting of the Hideaway is really stunning and the accommodation is of a very high standard. The whole place feels almost empty with a good mix of nationalities. I disagree with the previous reviewer as I thought the food was excellent. It would get a bit repetetive if you were there for too long but we stayed for 5 nights and had lots of variety. The prices are expensive for Vietnam but the quality, presentation ,setting and service in my opinion were very good. You can walk along the lovely beach every morning for breakfast and the whole place just feels so chilled. I had an excellent massage and the yoga class on the beach was a great experience with a very good teacher from NZ.
Beautiful with limitations
My wife and I stayed at the Evason in a Beach Villa for four nights in November as part of a two-week trip through Vietnam.
Although the accomodation seems to be very simple it is one of the most beautiful spots we have seen on all our trips to far. Service, especially the private butler, is excellent. The only downside was the quality of food: comparing the prices (USD 35 for the evening buffet + drinks) and quality to normal prices and quality in Vietnam this is clearly to expensive and since the Evason is in a remote location (only accesable by boat) you are stuck with the limited choices that the restaurant offers.
My wife and I stayed at the Evason Hideaway Ninh Van Bay (Nha Trang) at the begining of March 2005 as part of a three week trip to Vietnam. We have travelled throughout the world and stayed at the finest, most expensive resorts, hotels and getaways. This is among the finest that we've stayed at, and we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a idyllic escape and opportunity to connect or re-connect with their loved one.
My wife and I stayed here for one night in Aug, 2005 having spent four nights at the sister Ana Mandara resort. Having stayed at many five star resorts around the world, this rates as one of the most unique and enjoyable experiences. It is about to be discovered, so get there quick!
There is nothing else: only the sea, your pool, warm wind and that's it. My wife and I went there for 2 nights for a relaxing break between the frenzy of Saigon and Hanoi. We got what we were looking for: an afternoon and a day of laziness.
After being picked up at the airport there is a 40 minute journey to the private rest area where you are served a drink to freshen up, then you are taken aboard a private speed boat to the resort. When you first glimpse the villas from the bay the resort does not look like much as it blends in with the surroundings so well but you realise its beauty during your stay. We stayed at one of the beach villas although had considered the water villa (advised against it by our travel agent), and now I am glad we did not choose the water villa - you have to be rowed to and from the villa every time you want to get to the main beach.
I was moody before getting on the speed boat on my way to Evason Hideaway. But from the moment i stepped on this private piece of land that seemed like an island, i stood still for quite long feeling like Robinson Croussos in 5 star facilities! The bay is tranquil and beautiful, the rooms very spacious and give the sense on absolute privateness. Sleeping on the terrace bed in the night was so enjoyable watching the sea anytime you would open your eyes!
My partner and I stayed at the Evason Hideaway for a week in March. We had booked a hilltop villa, but had to spend the first night in a beach villa, the excuse being: "hilltop villa so nice, everybody want them". That about describes the attitude of the management; staff was very nice, but virtually untrained, English speaking skills almost none.
