In a word.....Bliss.
Stayed for a week and felt totally relaxed upon leaving, just what we wanted. We stayed in Room 118, a garden view villa just opposite the spa. Perfect location, short walk to the beach and to the restaurants. Special mention to Victoria, Julio (executive chef), Jorge and Linh (for the best massages!). I requested vegan meals which Julio and Victoria arranged without fuss, the meals were delicious and Julio is very talented. We tried a paddle board lesson and on the third attempt (thanks to Jorge) this happened and was a lot of fun, not just for us but I think we have the instructor a few laughs too. We tried nearly all the spa treatments on offer, manicure and pedicure were fine, massages were very strong, don't underestimate the young ladies - they are super strong! For me personally I found Linh to give the most enjoyable and relaxing massage. Scrubs were nice and left skin feeling soft, wraps were ok but nothing special. If you want more than your alloted two per day then book treatments early and ask after if they have space for another, if they can fit you then they will. Villa was beautiful and clean and our pool was also kept that way. Other half tried the snorkeling and enjoyed it and I enjoyed feeding the fish near the restaurant each day. Afternoon tea is served (complimentary) and they even arranged vegan treats for me (see photo).We visited the night market through the hotel and was well organised, other than that we didn't leave the resort as it was just so relaxing and peaceful. We walked along the beach and watched the sunset, read books, and generally just relaxed. We also used the gym a few times, hardly saw anyone else in it though it's very warm in there. Highly recommend this resort for a perfect antidote for a busy lifestyle.
The Good and the Bad
I really want to rate this resort a 5 star, but sadly I have I have stayed in 3 stars that are far better. The good is our greater - Quiet, I guess people call them fashionistas, we never heard this term unless on trip advisor, so not sure what this is about. BUT he was the one staff member that was fabulous, thank you very much you are amazing. The rest of the staff I can say are ...meh? The room. We stayed in a 1 bedroom river view. Beautiful villa, and really clean. However, over the 5 days we stayed the pool never got cleaned, there is also no filtering system, so the pool was extremely dirty after two days. Giant dung Beatles floating in our pool and we had to clean our selves, not okay for a suppose 5 star hotel. The food, is really good, a highlight of our trip. They really do a great job of local and western food. The Happy hour at the beach is great. Such a great location and fantastic sunsets. Great drinks also. Finally ... the SPA. UGH. I had booked a Shellac manicure. I have had many shellac manicures in Canada, and they require UV light. Trang did not use this, I thought, maybe they do not really know what shellac is, being this is our 10 time in Asia, so I thought nothing of it. The manicure was alright. The next day I had a foot scrub, and another customer came in having manicure and had the UV light. I was so upset... really. It was suppose to be 50 minute procedure but was 25 min. My nails chipped two days later, definitely not shellac. Also, I had to cancel one of my appointments as I was sick, so called the night before. My husband still went to his appointment and got the 5th degree as to where I was, why wasn't I there... although I Called and cancelled. This is not a 5 star resort. Relaxing yes, but the spa is not a spa worth trying. Its like you are being hurded like cattle on the hour. We will not return for the money we paid.
We had a week in villa 303. It was one of the loveliest rooms we’ve ever stayed in. It had uninterrupted views of the ocean but still remained very private. The design of the resort is very clever as the villas have grassy banks each side giving privacy. It is quite a spread out resort but we loved our room because it was close to the sea, the main pool and Pezca the restaurant serving a mix of European and Asian dishes. The staff are lovely and very friendly and helpful. Our fusionista Tuyet who welcomed us was delightful and Dieu and Hien in Pezca were excellent. There were one or two issues while we stayed, for example, one evening the restaurant Pezca was a bit chaotic and another night had run out of all types of steak and chips and the spa was not as good as Fusion resort in Da Nang in that there was much less choice of treatments but overall it was a really relaxing break. You Apart from the amazing room which had its own lovely pool, sunbeds and a really cool hammock we loved watching the sunsets on the beach every night. The beach bar was great with a band, comfy seats and a happy hour with 30% off drinks. A very special place.
The best resort ever!
The sunset is so beautiful, the massage is cool, and the scenery is so nice. Especially "Lee", a Korean Receptionist, is so kind.She is good at Korean and English. Also laugh well. I highly recommend this resort. 한국인으로서 한국인직원이 상주해있다는점이 무엇보다 아주 큰 도움이 되었어요.이제 막 돌 지난 저희아기도 너무많이 예뻐해주시고, 리조트관련해서 도움도 많이주셔서 편안한 여행이였습니다. 'Lee'님 덕분에 한층 더 즐거운 가족여행이 되었습니다. 고마워요^^
Stylish resort but the spa is not a plus
Fusion is definitely a special resort with nice setting and atmosphere. My family and I had a very good time here. Breakfast and the food in the secret garden, soul kitchen, and in villa dining are good. The staff in the restaurants are helpful. And I would like to especially mention the fusionista, Mr. Quyet. He is very nice and considerate. Thank you ver much. As for the spa, I have to say it doesn’t worth trying. Compared with the spa I ever visited around Vietnam, it’s sadly below average. I think it’s probably owing to the staff are overloaded. If fusion can provide some option with no spa inclusive, it should be a good idea, and it may make the stay perfect.
