Dalat Edensee Resort, a resort & spa that has quickly become the go-to place for discerning travellers to savour the charms of Vietnamâ€™s famous Highlands, has announced a special â€˜Highland Spring Heavenâ€™ package for guests to escape the heat into the sanctuary of a cooler clime with stunning views.
Inspired by the Rhine Valley region in Germany, where Tieu Nhu Phuong, owner of the resort, has been living, Dalat Edensee Resort is every bit as fabulous and sophisticated as the area it is modelled after. The decorations, from guest accommodations to the stately lounge and glamorous rooftop terrace, are distinctively European, with chandeliers sparkling as if reflected by the light from Tuyen Lam Lake, beautifully crafted furniture, marble fireplaces and sweeping staircases, all against a sweeping backdrop of lush pine forest that takes your breath away the first time you see it.
This package is priced at VND5,300,000 per room (for two persons), for two nights, three days accommodation in a Mimosa Superior Room with daily breakfast, a romantic dinner for two and a full-body massage for two, which allows you to choose from many tempting options – Swedish, Vietnamese, Aromatherapy Revival, Thai and Herbal Compress Therapy.
Also included in the package are welcome drinks and a fruit plate when you check in, use of the resortâ€™s facilities such as swimming pool, tennis court, cinema and billiard tables, round-trip airport transfer and shuttle to and from Dalat city centre.
Carole, an English lady who lives in Vietnam, wrote this wonderful review on Trip Advisor after taking her sister and niece who were visiting her from England, to Dalat Edensee Resort: â€˜I have been lucky enough to stay in some beautiful hotels around the world, but I donâ€™t think I have ever stayed in a place that was so spotlessly clean, or where the staff were so professional, friendly, courteous, attentive, and eager to please. It was obvious how proud they were to work in such a magnificent setting, and I know from talking to them that they love their jobs. Iâ€™m not going to describe the resort in detail, or add photographs, because everything really is exactly how it appears on the website. What the website doesnâ€™t show, however, is the professionalism of the staff or the quality of the food and the way it is so beautifully presented and served. The breakfasts were fantastic with a wide choice to suit all tastes, including the most delicious breads and pastries Iâ€™ve ever had in Vietnam. We had dinner in the resort on our second night, and wished weâ€™d done so on the first instead of eating in the city. The service and quality was unbelievable, and we felt like royalty. At one point I said to the waiter â€˜I feel like a VIP!â€™ He replied that all guests at Dalat Edensee Resort are VIPs. How lovely is that?
â€˜We are always happy to receive such great reviews,â€™ said Tieu Nhu Phuong, owner of Dalat Edensee Resort. â€˜But we never rest on our laurels; the team at Dalat Edensee Resort always strives to make us one of the top resorts not only in Vietnam, but in South East Asia. The Highland Spring Heaven package is a way to thank our customers by offering a special deal to escape the heat so they are inspired to return to us. We also hope that those who have not had a chance to visit us will do so this time, to experience the ultimate highland luxury at Dalat Edensee Resort.â€™
If you want to stay longer as part of the package, any extra night costs only VND1,990,000 per a couple including dinner. The offer runs from now till 25 April 2014, and includes all taxes and service charges.
