Tucked at the end of An Bang village (up to coast, in the direction of Da Nang), An Bang Seaside Village is a series of cottages, each with a different set up and personality.
Though the room rates have gone upmarket since our previous review, they are still a reasonable offer for those who want solid bungalows that combine both beautiful and practical touches.
Those beautiful touches include a front terrace with sofas, cushions, tables and chairs, beachy decor and a small private tropical garden shared between the houses. The practical side means guests get air-con, ceiling fan, WiFi, kettle, spacious open-plan interiors, shelves for clothes, flatscreen TV and a polished concrete bathroom with hot water. The Mango House and Banana House, which has two queen beds, have an outdoor kitchenette; all room rates include breakfast.
These houses are designed to keep you comfortable and feeling at home in a quiet, private place whenever you aren’t at the beach. By the way, the beach is just 67 steps away down a sandy lane that will deposit you on the quiet end of An Bang, away from the main concentration of eateries and beach chairs. Overall, this is for someone who wants a low-key beachside living experience in a neighbourhood-type setting.
With all the different houses, the pricing is confusing and the rate we saw on an online booking site was significantly cheaper than the walk in rate we were quoted.
