The pioneer luxury resort in Vietnam turns 10
The architect of the first private observatory in Vietnam, Astronomer Parag Mahajani tells us what’s beyond the gases, pollution and city lights. Words by Nick Ross
Make your family’s summer getaway an unforgettable one in the beach destinations of Con Dao, Ninh Van Bay and Nha Trang.
The first five-star resort on the Con Dao archipelago, this unique property pays homage to the remoteness of its natural environment by being deliberately sandwiched between the sea, beach, mangrove and mountains behind. 50 wooden-framed bamboo pool villas stretch along the curved bay here, each with an unencumbered view of the sea. Also has a fitness centre, two restaurants, diving facilities and free bicycle usage.
