New Resort & Spa in Vietnam

— The Princess d’Annam Resort & Spa has opened on a private bay overlooking the South China Sea, 150 kilometres from Saigon.

“This part of Vietnam was crying for a top-flight property, the likes of which you rarely encounter between here and Bali,” said Jean-Philippe Beghin, the resort’s general manager. “Now, the crying is over.”

Named for a 13th Century Vietnamese princess, the Princess d’Annam opens with 57 units on a secluded bay 35 kms south of the provincial capital of Phan Thiet.

Designed by Singaporean architect Tan Hock Beng, the all-villa resort trades in three classes of accommodation, from the 75-sqm Mandarin villa to the 100-sqm Princess and the 185-sqm, two-story Empress.

The spa, whose design is reminiscent of a Moroccan sanctuary, overlooks the sea.

The resort’s gardens are designed by Alan Carle, who also designed the ginger gardens in Singapore’s Botanical Gardens.

Rack rates at the resort begin at US$465 per night, and climb into four figures at the top end.
