Set on a mountainside in northern Vietnam, Avana Retreat offers 36 bungalows, suites, and pool villas which are seamlessly integrated into the landscape. Each boasts spectacular views of the mountains, valleys, and terraced rice fields. The retreat’s secluded location ensures ultimate privacy while its 15-hectare area gives plenty of space to roam including a waterfall in the center. The Villa design inspiration stems from the local farmhouses and the ethnic building methods and details have been adopted with hand-built earth walls that reproduce the look and feel of Hmong’s houses. The earth wall helps the villa cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Natural thatched roof design has been adopted to follow the typical traditional stilt house’s architecture of Northwestern ethnic groups. Environment-friendly materials and local craftsmanship were a high priority in this project. Guests can truly enjoy the uninterrupted views of pristine nature from the rice field-shaped infinity pool, from an Orchid Spa running along a murmuring stream, or view the idyllic scene of ethnic Hmong working on the fields.
