Nourish your body, still your mind at Vedana Lagoon Resort & Spa
Taking its name from a Sanskrit word – feeling – that in Buddhist philosophy can, when touched by mindfulness, lead to enlightenment, the Vedana Lagoon Resort & Spa features 29 over-water villas and bungalows spread across 27 hectares of lush, isolated greenery, offering views across one of the largest and most beautiful South Asian lagoons. Framed by the culturally rich cities of Hue and Hoi An, the resort interprets the modern art concept through traditional Vietnamese elements.

Whether they choose an individualized bungalow or a spacious villa, guests at the Vedana Lagoon Resort & Spa awake in peaceful serenity, surrounded by private, tropical gardens, with the lagoon only a few steps away. Traditional outside but dazzlingly modern inside, the high, airy rooms blend in harmoniously with the resort’s magnificent setting. Outside the resort, the Royal Tombs of Tu Duc, the Thien Mu Pagoda, the Truc Lam Zen Monastery, or the Dong Ba Market promise fascinating escapades on peaceful mornings or cool, breezy evenings.
Fresh Food on the Menu
For a refined dining experience, however, you don’t have to wander far – the resort’s Horizon restaurant, like a tranquil oasis, surrounded by tropical greenness, provides a complete Vietnamese menu amply supplied with fresh fish caught by local fishermen, together with some more cosmopolitan European dishes and a varied selection of world-renowned wine labels.
If you’re looking for a very, very intimate dining experience, head over to the Lantern House, where the specialty is a secluded, romantic dinner in the heart of the resort. If you only want a quick drink on the deck, though, the Cape Bar on the hillside, over the pool, distills in bright colors spirits and cocktails, some of which you may not have experienced anywhere else. For coffee and tea, the Shanti vegetarian café and bookstore lounge takes nearby is a quick and easy retreat.

Head over to the spa rooms, which beautifully blend oriental designs with Western comforts, and enjoy your very first ever herbal steam.
Individualized treatments are available for both sexes, with highlights such as traditional hair treatment with soap-berry extract for ladies and a green tea transformer body scrub for gents. If you’re traveling with your spouse, a lover’s flower bath perfumed with vanilla essential oil, together with a bottle of sparkling wine and just enough candlelight is only one of the lover’s spa packages that await you.
