A beach break in Nha Trang: Part 2

We left Nha Trang town behind for a stay at the Evason Hideway, Ninh Van Bay – a picturesque, isolated bay accessible only by speedboat.

This was the scene that awaited…

With its rocky landscape, the resort offers some villas with private swimming pools carved into huge boulders! We stayed in a beachfront pool villa – a two-storey hut with our own plunge pool between our bedroom and the beach.

The eco-friendly resort has a Robinson Crusoe luxe feel – it uses natural materials wherever possible and blends into the surrounds – everything’s bamboo and wood, including the gorgous stand-alone tub in the open-air bathroom.

This was my favourite part of the villa – a loungey daybed on the second floor with views out to sea. Not a bad place to spend my birthday!

    Megan: I love standalone bathtubs so of course this was one of my favourite features too!

    Verity: Will your break be in Turkey somewhere or further afield?

    Jen, Previously Bitten & Joel: Thanks for your comments – it is indeed a beautiful place, and perhaps underrated as far as beach locations in Asia go

    Baron’s Life: Not sure whether to laugh or take out a restraining order (kidding!)
