La Veranda

Top luxury spot

What we say: 4 stars

With its muted yellows and terracotta tiles, colonial-styled La Veranda, right in the heart of the developed stretch of Long beach, harks back dreamily to Vietnam's French-ruled period. If you're a romantic, and you've coin to spare, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more luxurious and tasteful spot to stay on the island.

It has a nice view too.

Wandering through the grounds at La Veranda, you'll see that they take their 19th century colonial theme seriously. Waiters and other staff don pith helmets, patios are equipped with bamboo shades and rustic wooden chairs, and the resort's hibiscus gardens also fit the theme. The attention to ascetic detail comes at a price -- La Veranda ain't budget digs.

Plenty of places to sit.

The resort is broken into a mansion plus numerous villas scattered throughout the gardens. Rooms boast four-poster beds with stylish mosquito nets, wooden desks and retro prints on the walls plus all the usual modern amenities -- air-con, TV and WiFi. Rooms in the main building are decently sized but not huge considering what you pay; in the villas, you'll get more space, especially as you get closer to the water, but it's still somewhat limited compared to other spots.

Staying here you'll have little reason to leave. A pleasant stretch of beach is sectioned off for your enjoyment but, if you don't want to get sand in your hair, their modestly sized blue-tiled pool is plenty comfortable. On the grounds you'll find two restaurants. The Pepper Tree is one of the top fine-dining spots on the island, offering a high-end and high-priced menu of international cuisin plus a few set menus that are a bit better value. La Jardin, the restaurant in the main building, has a simpler Mediterranean-themed menu with particularly good pizzas. Restaurants are pricier than others in the area, but if you want to go for a wander, you're within striking distance of several spots on Tran Hung Dao. The on-site bar is a great spot for sundowners, not only for the atmosphere and location, but also for their happy hour, which offers half-priced drinks from 18:00 to 19:00.

La Veranda is in a picturesque location and offers loads of atmosphere. However, you're staying on Long Beach, where finding a US$50 bungalow is quite within the realm of reason. If you're looking for unmatched luxury and the service that goes with it, La Veranda is the place to go. If you're budget conscious, then a few other places may fit the bill -- just a short drive down the beach, for instance, Beach Club has much more basic rooms with much more affordable prices. If you're keen on luxe and ambiance, but want more seclusion, Mango Bay on Ong Lang beach has a rustic style in a more secluded location.
