Wellness by the water

Nestled on the shores of a peaceful and serene lagoon, Vedana Lagoon Resort & Spa has stunning views over one of the largest lagoons in Southeast Asia.

Vedanaā Lagoon Resort & Spa lies between two cities that have won world heritage site status: Hue and Hoi An. The resort embodies the subtle connection of modern art concepts and high-end lifestyles, with the highlight being the first over-water bungalows to be built in Vietnam. The essence of Vedanaā Lagoon Resort & Spa is its wellness experience.
It offers a contemporary décor while subtly showcasing traditional Vietnamese elements in its design. Natural materials and elegantly-fashioned local textiles and handicrafts are used throughout its 27 villas and bungalows. Guest rooms are all well-appointed and offer spacious bedrooms and living spaces, with luxurious bathrooms and full amenities. Landed villas have their own section of landscaped gardens with mountain and or lagoon views while the over-water villas have generous sundecks, and all villas are spread far apart with maximum privacy in mind. 

Unwind with delicious dishes in each of the resort’s restaurant, including a selection of local Vietnamese delicacies and international fare, or enjoy famous spirits at the Cape Bar. The Horizon restaurant is located in the centre of the resort and offers breathtaking views of the lush landscapes and the immense lagoon. The restaurant beckons guests to relax in the ambience of its authentic architecture. At Lantern House, meanwhile, guests can enjoy local delicacies freshly caught and prepared, such as snapper, prawns, and grouper, or perhaps a barbeque served in a casual atmosphere.

At the end of the day a memorable dinner while sitting under the stars and enjoying the serenity of the evening is simply wonderful. Twilight is when guests can enjoy a romantic sunset dinner in an authentic Vietnamese hut overlooking the lagoon. The Cape Bar is surrounded by an abundance of tropical trees and is the perfect spot to relax and unwind any time of day. Vedanaā Spa & Wellness blends ancient traditional healing wisdom from the East with therapies from the West. It focuses on the state of being healthy in body, mind, and soul, using no chemicals or artificial ingredients in its spa treatments and taking great care from the sourcing to the handling and blending of 100 per cent natural ingredients. Where possible the resort derives all its spa products from its own herb gardens or locally from sustainable sources fresh from the morning market. All treatments are pure in style and substance, offering the unique essence of Hue.

Wellbeing is promoted via relaxing elements in the spa design. Before or after spa treatments guests can stay in the spa to enjoy the Jacuzzi, sauna and herbal steam or rest in grass-roofed shalas while sipping on complimentary signature ginger or mint tea. For all body treatments it offers guests therapeutic-quality essential oils. 

There are many nearby places guests at Vedanaā Lagoon Resort & Spa can visit, with the nearest airport at Hue being just 30 minutes away and Danang International Airport 90 minutes by car. The resort is also just 45 minutes from the centre of Hue, 90 minutes from the centre of Da Nang, and 25 minutes from the beautiful coastal strip of Lang Co by car. Standing in the heart of this historic and picturesque region, visitors can easily spend time in Hue and Hoi An - two world heritage sites. Hue has various points of ecological and historic interest, such as the Citadel, the Royal Tombs of Emperors Tu Duc, Khai Dinh, and Minh Mang, Thien Mu Pagoda, Dong Ba Market, and the Thanh Toan tile roof bridge. Other attractions near the resort include Bach Ma National Park, Lang Co Beach, Truc Lam Zen Monastery, Loc Binh Beach, Canh Duong Beach, Binh An Beach, and dramatic waterfalls. 

The resort’s goal is to indulge guests with a new kind of spa experience, one that touches them in a way that evokes happy memories of Vietnam, yet is also designed to relax, rejuvenate and restore the senses through the skills of its highly trained spa professionals. “It is our belief that everyone one encounters is a gift,” said Managing Director Le Van Truong. “We are grateful for this gift, and hope you will receive our gift of care and appreciation with our compliments.”
