Banyan Tree Lang Co – Luxurious Resort Living by The East Sea
December 23, 2017
The Lang Co region of Central Vietnam is celebrated for its perfect situation between the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Hue, Hoi An, and My Son. Explore the enchanting allure of culturally rich Indochina from the wonderful central base of Banyan Tree Lang Co, set on the tranquil hinterland enveloped by golden sands, tropical jungles, mountain peaks, and breathtaking eco-diversity.
With diverse terrain and charming scenes offered by the Truong Son (Annamite) Mountain Range, Lap An Lagoon, and the East Sea, Banyan Tree Lang Co is the quintessential luxury tropical beach retreat. The architecture and design of this all-pool villa resort pay contemporary tribute to the glory of ancient Vietnamese dynasties past and the cultural richness of the region. Main buildings and villas are reminiscent of the traditional garden houses of Hue – showcasing integrated clay tiled pitched roofs, open courtyards, and intricate latticework.
Locally sourced renewable materials such as bamboo, rattan, and raffia weave are highly featured throughout the culturally and ecologically sensitive resort. We were hosted at the Lagoon Pool Villa which overlooks a serene lagoon. There are also the Beach Pool Villa which offers incredible views of the East Sea and a private pathway to the warm Canh Duong beach, and the Hillside Pool Villas. Set 25 to 86 metres above sea level, the Hillside Pool Villa is available in one, two, or three-bedroom layouts – ideal for couples, families, and friends.
Start your day at The Water Court which serves a wide variety of breakfast items. This restaurant is open throughout the day and serves delectable Vietnamese delicacies too. Tantalise your taste buds with piquant Thai cuisine at the hilltop Saffron restaurant. We took a cooking class at Saffron restaurant. Besides learning about another culture’s food habits, we also had lots of fun whipping up the dishes with the chef of Saffron restaurant. If you’re craving for a hearty Italian fare, head to Azura. Wine lovers, whiskey connoisseurs, and cocktail fans will delight at the creative drinks served at Thu Quan.
Banyan Tree Lang Co is a haven for relaxation. You can seek physical and spiritual bliss at the award-winning Banyan Tree Spa Lang Co. Using a blend of aromatic oils, organic herbs and spices, expert therapists draw on centuries-old techniques to deliver relaxation and rejuvenation with every treatment. Look forward to being pampered like royalty and leave the cares of the world behind. A fitness centre is also available, and yoga classes are provided. Do consider taking a long lazy dip in their unique 300-metre long serpentine pool as well.
As Banyan Tree Lang Co is located within Laguna Lang Co, there is a multitude of entertaining and relaxing diversions awaiting you. Take a swing at the 18-hole championship Golf Club course designed by 6-time Major Winner Sir Nick Faldo, skim the gentle East Sea waves water skiing, kayaking, parasailing, or get an adrenaline rush from ATV rides, mountain biking, and more.
The reason why Banyan Tree appeals so much to me is due to their commitment of driving sustainable development by increasing operational efficiency, protecting the environment, and embracing the people. I would like to commend them for creating the “Seedlings Mentorship Program”. This gives underprivileged youths aged 12 to 18 years old an equal chance of achieving their full potential in life. The Seedlings Restaurant is also launched by Laguna Lang Co under Banyan Tree’s group-wide mentorship programme with the aim to provide training and job opportunities for disadvantaged youths, giving them the necessary life skills to forge successful careers in hospitality.
With an abundance of activities to keep you occupied at Banyan Tree Lang Co, you can relax, unwind and have fun, as and when you desire without having to step out of the resort. To make the best out of your trip to Central Vietnam, just join one of the tours from Banyan Tree Lang Co, and you can uncover the hidden gems of this region. We were very unlucky as it was raining heavily during our stay at Banyan Tree Lang Co, but this is a good excuse for us to return for a vacation again.
