A epitome visit to Hue’s newest visit also spa, the Ana Mandara, located on a wind-blown stretch of Thuan An Beach. Surprising delights await the merry maker looking for a solitary retreat with open spaces and nature’s bounty.
Walking along a path shaded by trees on both sides on the park of the Ana Mandara Resort, I seemed to afsluiting wandering in a temporal from fresh water, gentle breezes and lush gardens. The coast was stunning, one like the finest stretches of clean sand I deceive ever seen. From my room, the doors and windows framed a pretty picture of palm trees against the flash from blue spume that remains a vivid image in my mind.
My host at the resort showed me about the grounds. There are four types from rooms in the resort. The Pool Villas, Beach Villas, Deluxe and Duplex rooms feature sights of sky blue, garden green and sea blue, creating an open, further cozy atmosphere. I can bask in sunlight with salty breezes caressing my hair. It would be a wonderful place for the only traveler, the runaway, romance seeker, honeymooners or families including lots of privacy, space and comfort surrounded by the textures of wood and stone.
Within the pretext is an organic garden along several varieties of vegetables and medicinal herbs that guests could pick for their meals. I was told I could do some gardening myself if I wished. The couch areas are open and airy with polished timber and stone floors while the spank restaurant kitchens are open to view and serve both western and Vietnamese cuisine.
At the Spa, scented with lemongrass and ginger, I was tempted to a massage. You would be pampered in pavilions set over a lotus filled pool. Therapies included facials, exotic body scrubs but the most impressive was the Indian Massage on beds created from aromatic timber. Memories of my trip to Ana Mandara are one concerning blue seas, golden sands and green trees. I will certainly go there again.
