Situated in the former fishing village of Lang Co, the Banyan Tree Lang Co oozes a sense of seclusion and exclusivity. It’s one of just two hotels in the immediate vicinity and offers a private retreat for those who want to escape the crowds and relax. The resort has 17 beachfront villas and 32 lagoon-facing villas, each with a private pool. All villas are designed in the traditional Vietnamese style that’s carefully balanced with a contemporary flare.
During your stay, you can make use of the property's spa, fitness facility, golf club, and five bars and restaurants.
There are three room categories at the Banyan Tree Lang Co; the Lagoon Pool Villa, the Beach Pool Villa and the Sea View Hill Villas. Each villa has its own private pool, though the size depends on the type of villa you opt for. Sea View Hill Villas, which have the largest pools, range from one to three bedrooms, making them good options for both couples and families. Though all villas have views, the most impressive can be found from the infinity pools at the Sea View Hill Villas.
The Banyan Tree is located in a secluded part of central Vietnam, set against rolling hills, with a private stretch of beach in the foreground. While daytrips to Hoi An or Hue are possible, you are far from any major town, so a stay here is usually centered around relaxation and/or water sports, which the region is known for.
Food and Drink
Banyan Tree has four restaurants ou can choose from, serving a mixture of cuisines from Italian and Mediterranean to Thai, Vietnamese and more international options. There is also a cocktail bar, open all day, that offers drinks and snacks.
Families can stay all together in the two- or three-bedroom villas and there is a kids club with plenty of activities for the children.
Facilities and Activities
The property offers an 18-hole Sir Nick Faldo-designed golf course, a gym and a yoga pavilion. In addition to this, guests also have access to a sports facility that offers use of jet skis, speedboats, paddleboards, kayaks, windsurfing equipment and archery. There are also hiking trails on site and cooking classes, as well as a shared smaller common pool near the beach (in addition to the private pools).
We think that the Banyan Tree has the best water sports facility in Vietnam. It also offers the opportunity to escape the crowds, something that can be hard to find in other regions.
