Avana Retreat

Avana Retreat

Mai Chau, Vietnam

Avana Retreat is a beautiful mountain hideaway designed to represent a genuine love for the natural environment. Tours, trekking and adventure activities can be arranged in-house by the dedicated guide staff, and the heated panoramic infinity pool is arguably the best place to head for sunset views or ‘cloud hunting’. Avana Retreat prides itself in investing in the local community’s growth, the well-being of its citizens, and the health of the local economy. Almost exclusively, staff are employed from Mai Chau or surrounding villages and trained in-house in-line with the Avana's commendable values.


We love the Avana Retreat’s range of experiences that help guests explore the beauty of Mai Chau, immerse themselves in nature, and discover the vibrant culture of northern Vietnam.

The villas are a variety of styles but are all perched on the mountainside and are inspired by ethnic stilt houses that blend seamlessly into a backdrop of imposing forest and rice terraces. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls utilise natural light to reduce energy usage.


Surrounded by the verdant landscape of Mai Chau’s lush jungles and rice-clad valleys, the Avana Retreat has a moderate plateau environment in a remote idyllic region. The nearest town is Mai Chau, located approximately a 30-minute drive away.
