Sneak Peek: Banyan Tree Lang Cô and Angsana Lang Cô, Lang Cô Bay, Vietnam

  • Jenna Hockema

Banyan Tree Lang Cô and Angsana Lang Cô have opened on the central southern coast of Vietnam in Lang Cô Bay. These sister resorts are situated on pristine beaches with expansive views of the nearby mountains and jungle. Banyan Tree has 32 lagoon villas and 17 beach villas built on a secluded crescent bay; rates start at $849 per night. Its more rustic counterpart, Angsana, has 229 suites, many of which have private pools. Both resorts were inspired by traditional Vietnamese architecture, showcased in locally sourced bamboo, wood-rafter ceilings, and pitched clay-tile roofs. The Banyan Tree Spa specializes in Asian therapies and offers a variety of treatments. Dining options include Saffron, Azura, and the Watercourt, each focusing on a different gastronomical approach: Thai cuisine, Italian fare, and French-Vietnamese fusion. Additional activities include golfing and visits to the nearby UNESCO World Heritage sites of Hue, Hoi An, and My Son. (+84.54.3695.888; www.banyantree.com/en/lang_co/)
