Pandanus Resort & Spa Mui Ne, Vietnam

Pandanus Resort & Spa Mui Ne is the place to stay in Mui Ne Area and look for some relaxation and restfulness. It opened in 2004 right next to the beach. The accommodations are built in a huge garden with tropical plants, lakes with lotus blossoms, and small streams. Read here my Luxury Hotel Review – Pandanus Resort & Spa Mui Ne.

My first impression of the resort was very positive. It is a calm and peaceful place close to nature. The receptionist gave me a warm welcome, and the check-in was easy and fast. After a refreshing shower, I went to the daily complimentary wine and cheese reception.

It is a good chance to meet other guests and to get first-hand information from a destination expert on what to do in Mui Ne. Steve, the General Manager of the Resort, uses this event to welcome all of his guests personally, which I highly appreciate. He is responsive and always motivated to answer the questions of his guests.

The Red Sand Dunes are within walking distance, and the famous White Sand Dunes, which are claimed to be the driest spot in South East Asia, are less than 30 kilometers away. There are some small, local restaurants within walking distance to the resort, and a free transfer to Mui Ne city is provided at fixed times.

Guests staying at Pandanus Resort can participate in a daily Yoga and Tai Chi class free of charge. I decided on the Yoga class, which takes part right next to the beach. It was a great experience, and the instructor was very friendly and patient.
