In 2011, Sun Group built a French-inspired amusement park and made the place more accessible with the world’s longest cable car system. The 5.7km ride has a rise of 1,489m, with a spectacular trip over jungle and waterfalls. In 2015, Mercure Bana Hills opened, giving visitors more time to indulge themselves and discover the whole area.
Hidden in the French Village, Mercure Ba Na Hills consists of 494 rooms with European-themed interiors and furniture. It’s a well-combined design of red, white, brown and yellow, exuding the elegance and distinctive qualities of the French countryside in the 19th century. Each room boasts a view either over the mountains or the village. With rooms located on upper floors, guests can also admire the stunning panorama of the whole of Ba Na Hills.
With two restaurants, two bars, two cafés and one bakery, the resort offers multiple food and drink options.
While La Crique functions as a local market serving up breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets every day, L’ Etable is a contemporary restaurant focusing on Vietnamese cuisine for lunch and dinner.
La Taverne is a cozy wood and stone tavern cellar where guests can laze with their favourite drinks while live music plays in the background at weekends. Planet 21 is not only a café, but is also an environmentally friendly space with an interior made from recyclable materials.
The Four Seasons, a 443sqm indoor swimming pool, is worth trying out. It’s designed with one large section for adults and a pirate-themed area for kids. The water temperature is adjusted in accordance with the outdoor temperature. Other facilities include a fitness centre, a spa and shops.
The resort is located in the impressive entertainment complex of Ba Na Hills, a complex that greets more than 2 million visitors per year. Experiences include constructions such as Fantasy Park, Debay Wine Cellar, Le Jardin d’Amour, Wax Statue Museum, the cliff railway and a funicular.
For those who are looking for something more spiritual, Ba Na Hills also includes a group of temples and a pagoda at the top of the hill. Guests in search of some serenity can take a morning stroll up to Linh Ung Pagoda and feast their eyes on the panoramic view of the entire French Village as mist and clouds cling to the trees.
Another option for reflection is to catch the day’s first rays of light by nestling in a corner of Tru Vu Tea House over a cup of hot tea and a bite to eat.
