An Lam Retreats Ninh Van Bay is the little sister to the well established An Lam property in Ho Chi Minh City, and the expertise of the well trained hotel staff is evident here. The delightful Sen restaurant is the much lauded central focus of this hotel - designed to look like a lotus flower, its clearly visible as you speed across the bay. The villas are all generously sized, sumptuously decorated with local materials, and the whole resort blends almost seamlessly into the trees and rocks it's built around.
