Follow Tran Nhat Duat Street northwest past the Buon Ako Dhong tourist village (you’ll see the traditional long houses) and eventually you will end up at a small pond with brick bungalows on the hillside. When we visited the property was very quiet and after some poking around, we did eventually find someone to show us the rooms. The bungalows are surprisingly cute and cheerful inside. The exposed brick walls have been painted white making everything bright and the big windows also let in a lot of light. A double bed is pushed into one corner and on top of clean tile floors, there’s a desk and minifridge. Bungalows come with fan, air-con, kettle, WiFi and an attached wet-room style bathroom with hot water shower. The only disappointing thing is that there’s no attached outdoor terrace to enjoy the quiet surrounds. One option is to pop down to one of the many huts surrounding the pond, which we suspect attract small gatherings on the weekends. The place also has one large-ish restaurant dining terrace overlooking the water.

This is definitely a place to chill out, do nothing and pretty much be left alone, not to be social. No English spoken. If you don’t have your own motorbike, a one-way taxi ride will cost 40,000-50,000 dong.
