Walk down the leafy pathway into the reception of Cassia Cottage and you’re instantly hit with warm service and a pleasant aroma of spice, which sets the tone of this enchanting tropical oasis.
Whether it is a garden or sea view room, interiors are imbued with the lightness of laidback tropical seaside living, a palette of neutral tones accented with a tasteful mix of earthy warm hues and cool colours. Natural materials such as terracotta and stone are also featured. The well-appointed rooms come with luggage rack, desk, air-con, WiFi, minibar, kettle and ensuite bathroom with shower and toiletries. Breakfast is included.
The large palm-fringed swimming pool overlooks the sea and then it is a short walk down to the 75 metres of private beach. The on-site restaurant, The Spice House, with dining tables dotted throughout the garden, serves both Western and Vietnamese food.
Cassia Cottage feels like a secret garden – but the intimacy may soon be a thing of the past. When we visited in December 2015, the resort was undergoing a massive expansion of 60 rooms. We were even more disappointed to see that on the exterior of the new wing looked something like a Florida retirement condo. But we admit, the interiors were undeniably gorgeous: chic, contemporary and cool. The sleek minimalist modern bathroom with enormous outdoor shower is stunning. We were told the construction would all be finished early 2016, including another restaurant and pool. While it really takes away from the intimate, cottagey feel, now it can please the masses.
