At one of Vietnam’s most idyllic seaside resorts, 200 km (124 miles) north of Ho Chi Minh City, the four star Victoria Phan Thiet Beach Resort & Spa is located beside a vast, palm-fringed white sand beach on the South China Sea with bungalows set in exotic gardens designed in the style of traditional Vietnamese country houses.
The resort is close to Phan Thiet, a charming fishing village with archaeological remnants of the Cham Empire, and the beach is backed by desert-like sand dunes that are home to rare flora and fauna. Excursions by jeep is popular with visitors, as is visiting the fishing village and trekking 1,000 steps to the top of Ta Ku Mountain to admire a giant 49 metres (160 feet) reclining Buddha statue.
Blessed by warm and sunny weather, the 59 cosy bungalows in the seven hectare exotic garden offer an idyllic location for a relaxing stay, enjoying natural Spa experiences and the great choice of activities at the resort.
