We stayed at the Evason Ana Mandara in April and loved it. The location is great: Right at the beach, and just a short taxi ride to the town center. They have their own beach area, which no other hotel in Nha Trang town has - so the beach is significantly less crowded than in the other areas closer to town. If you fancy a morning run, there's a very nice path along the beach - but there's also a gym for those who prefer air condition.
Breakfast is blissful with a view over the sea and a great selection of food. The staff is extremely attentive - they even prepared a vegetarian version of the noodle soup upon finding out that one person in our group was vegetarian.
We also booked a scuba diving trip through the hotel - it was perfectly organized with a very good dive master and very well kept gear. The coral around Nha Trang is stunning - healthy and colorful.
The hotel has two pools, a library with books and DVDs, a fantastic spa (you can choose between indoor or outdoor for your treatment) - but the most amazing is the staff. Everyone is genuinely attentive and trying to make your stay memorable and special. It definitely was for us - we will be back!

The attention to detail is what blew me away at this hotel. From the moment we arrived and the General Manager Fernando greeted us with delicious treats, to the moment we checked out very early in the morning with our gorgeous goody bag of pastries/ fruit/ juice and water, not a detail was missed. The pillow menu, the specifically scented envelope of lavender on my bed at turn down (don't like lavender? Choose your preferred scent!!) and any other bit or piece you may require. The fresh fruit on the beach or by the pool around 11.30am followed by a beautiful cool towel and maybe even have your sunglasses cleaned and oiled? The beautiful teapots at breakfast as well as the gorgeous crockery and specific spoons for boiled eggs (yes, I am picky!!).
We had a beach view room which was fabulous- only 20 steps from the beach although the beach front villas did look pretty special.
The spa was excellent and service not to be faulted.
We only had breakfast here which was anything and everything you could want. All ladies even got a beautiful rose on Mothers day!
It is close enough to town to walk in (or a quick, cheap cab ride) where there are so many restaurants to choose from. Yens was a highlight.
Thank you so much to everyone at Evason Ana Mandara for such a memorable visit- I hope to be back soon!!

My wife and I have just returned from holiday in Vietnam - we spent 9 nights in the Ana Mandara and I can`t praise it enough. From the moment we arrived we received a warm welcome, and we relaxed immediately in the beautiful hotel and surroundings. Been fortunate to stay in many lovely places all over the world but we both rate this as top of our list.
The hotel and facilities are excellent as you would expect - the location on the lovely beach only enhances the experience but for us the service is what defined the quality of our stay.... it was so professional, yet friendly - not stuffy as can happen in posh hotels.
The rooms are not the most luxurious we have ever experienced, but they are beautiful & had all the facilities we could hope for during our stay. We had a garden view room which was great & we didn't experience any road noise,
Breakfast was superb - huge choice and fantastic quality produce...add that to dining adjacent to the lovely beach and sea and its going to be hard to beat.
We only ate in the hotel one evening - whilst it was good it was very expensive by Nha Trang standards. There are so many good and very cheap restaurants in town the hotel struggled to compete in this one area. A 10minute walk will have you in the centre of the restaurant area.
I can also recommend the Six Sences Spa - had a massage one day as a treat and it was brilliant.
Finally - unfortunately we both got sick just before our arrival here(cleaned our teeth in tap water while on Halong Bay Junk...be warned!). After a few days of illness I rang reception to ask for an appointment with the onsite nurse. The hotel doctor arrived at our room 5minutes later and dispensed several medicines which had us both feeling much better quickly. When I asked for his bill he smiled widely & told me `It`s free!!....we want you to come back!` Impeccable service. We hope to return one day. Thankyou to all at Ana Mandara for a wonderful stay.
