This beautiful sanctuary is perched on the edge of a hillside, surrounded by the lush jungle and unspoilt verdant valleys of Mai Chau, a four-hour drive from Hanoi. A stay here is a perfect way to incorporate a rural stay to your journey through Vietnam and immersion in local culture and heritage is top of the agenda here at Avana, so it’s well worth at least two or three nights to properly experience the region.
Avana Retreat, Mai Chau
Pung waterfall runs through the resort, just one of the romantic spots you can book for private dining, along with the hidden spring lagoon.
