We had planned this for 1 year, a lot of research and Banyan Ocean Villa was absolutely Perfect. We were looking for something nice, in a special area and we found it. From the moment we arrived at the Villa and were greeted by the whole team...we knew that we were spot on. Phien our host was fantastic organising everything. Nothing was too much trouble. She organised our breakfast daily which was either tradional Beef Pho, fresh fruit, fresh baguettes and or bacon and eggs. Also available is a fully stocked fridge with beer, wine and softdrink, also a full supply of drinking water is provided. If we required a taxi to Hoi an or the airport, this was able to be easily arranged, no extra charge. Having a villa with all the extra rooms made it very comfortable. ..kids had their own area as did the parents. There are 4 bedrooms and an additional day bed upstairs as well.
The pool is absolutely amazing, a great relief from the heat, with the sunbeds all around or the hammocks. Plenty of outdoor showers as well to rinse off. Breakfast was always outside on the main table where you could sit by, watch all the butterflies float by and forget about the world. Either a lovely beef Pho, fresh fruit or Bacon and Eggs, with lovely fresh baguettes.
Make sure that you have Phien organise the Bbq on the beach for dinner (24hr notice) where you can observe the locals going out for their nightly fish or playing in the sea. It was an absolute feast..prawns, Calamari, Oysters, fish, chicken, fresh salads and rice. Phien is a very good cook, guaranteed not to be disappointed.
The villa is conveniently located near many restaurants and massage parlours, not to mention the beach. We went on many walks into the local areas from here to ricefields, local areas and the beach, we certainly soaked up a tradional way of life. Also easily accessible are taxi's to take you to Hoi An and surrounding area's.
We were also privileged to have been invited to the reception for Phien's wedding which will live with us all forever...what a wonderful experience. Ensure all final payments are made in cash as well, no cc facilities in the area.
Banyan Ocean Villa has made our experience of Vietnam truly special....cannot thank you enough.
Kind Regards Dave
This is a fantastic villa in a beautiful location. It has all you need if you want to stay in and relax. Great pool, beach out the back gate and wonderful manager who will bring you anything you need. Hoi an is a 5 minute taxi ride away with wonderful restaurants and shopping. This is a great place to stay and we will definitely be back.
Perfect place to spend a vacation. Only 30 seconds of a paradisiacal beach, the Villa is spectacular. Several restaurants only one minute walking. The chances to take meals to the Villa or to ask to cook there is also a possible solution The manager Yen and all the staff are of a great discretion and super efficient. We really loved it.
We spent 3 nights at the villa and were completely bowled over by the beautiful house, beach and absolutely fantastic staff. The minute we got there we loved the place. Yen the villa manager went out of her way to make our stay great. We were 2 families with 4 children in total and the rooms and layout worked perfectly. Loved it, can't wait to go back.
5 of us plus our 4 month old daughter stayed at the Banyan recently and had a great time, even if the weather did not cooperate with us. The guest manager, Yin, was so accommodating and catered to our every need. The bedrooms were so comfortable and cleaned every day. Though there is not much around An Bang, it has just enough, including some excellent restaurants and one or two mini marts. And Yin can easily arrange for taxis to Hoi An which are only USD 5. Wi-fi is a little spotty, but hopefully you don't need it for a lot while trying to relax.
Can't say enough about this place and would definitely want to be back.
