Banyan Tree, Lang Co
Banyan Tree recently opened this all-villa resort amid a string of fishing villages in the Lang Co region. The Singaporean group has big plans for the development, known as Laguna Lang Co, with a second Angsana hotel already open next door and space for a further six properties earmarked for the same site. Thankfully, the Banyan Tree resort still feels very intimate, with guests able to sequester themselves away in their private villa, with views of the sea or the Truong Son Mountains.
Banyan Tree, Lang Co (00 84 54 3695 888; banyantree.com). Doubles start at US$529 (£353), including breakfast.
