Northern Vietnam
Tam Coc Garden Resort, Ninh Binh

Nature is at the heart of this lovely boutique hotel, which makes for a very Zen place to stay amidst the rolling mountains of Ninh Binh.

With balconies overlooking rice paddies and a private location, its stone-and-timber “houses” are stylish yet rustic and set in an idyllic garden. The compact pool is the ideal place to cool off after a day exploring nearby attractions or cycling.

 

Facilities & Activities

The hotel has a lovely little outdoor pool and sun terrace, which is a great place to relax after trekking around the countryside. The pool has three depths, so is ideal for both adults and children. There is also a jacuzzi, dry sauna and steam room, and spa treatments – including herbal foot baths and full-body massages – are available.

 

Guests can hire bikes for free, and the most exclusive rooms (Full Moon Villa and Onsen Panoramic Valley Chamber) include one complimentary massage, plus free fishing and bar drinks and snacks. Other activities include cooking classes, Vietnamese tea tasting, boat picnics and local dance performances.

Dining

If Vietnamese cuisine is your thing, you’ll be in heaven here. The Citronella Restaurant serves the freshest of fare, with many ingredients – including mint, coriander, ginger, cardamom, turmeric and star anise – coming from the hotel’s organic garden located just steps away. Tuck into delights such as traditional beef noodle stew, crispy fish and dill spring rolls and banana flower and chicken salads. Western options such as burgers and sandwiches are also available. The Longani Bar has a relaxed terrace and serves an array of alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails.

Rooms

Vaulted ceilings, traditional floor tiles, exposed brickwork and large sumptuous beds are the order of the day in the hotel’s rustic stone houses, which are scattered amidst the rice paddies. Premium rooms have cosy living spaces and outdoor terraces with fantastic views. Each room type has its USP – the most lavish include the Full Moon Villa, which features a private pool, while you get your very own open-air hot spring in the Onsen Panoramic Valley Chamber. Rooms come with complimentary daily fruit bowls and teas, while high-tech touches include smart toilets and wi-fi throughout.
