The resort grounds are home to the historic Thanh Hoang Temple, where local fishermen gather each month to seek blessings, fortune, and protection from the nearby ocean.

The all-villa destination has also interpreted artful Vietnamese architecture in its abodes. The structure, landscape, and Phong Thuy (widely known as Feng Shui) pay tribute to local design with internal columns, central sleeping platforms, and expansive rooms that create natural ventilation. 

Zen-centered Spa

The Heart of the Earth Spa sits beside a lotus lagoon, perfect for getting lost in contemplative thought. With an emphasis on mindfulness and connection to Mother Nature, each treatment relates to the teachings of renowned Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hạnh. 

Renowned for treatments that enable emotional recovery, the spa menu’s offerings are divided into three categories: stability, creativity, and non-judgment, each containing an element of reconnecting to the natural world.
