The Luxe List 2011, Vietnam: An Lam Ninh Van Bay Villas, Nha Trang


Nestled against thickly forested slopes on a crescent of golden sand, this 35-villa getaway lets you play castaway without sacrificing an iota of comfort. Beachfront and lagoon-facing villas have uninterrupted views over Ninh Van Bay, while the deliciously cloistered three-story Hill Rock Villas—set at a higher elevation—enjoy ocean vistas filtered through the forest canopy.

Rooms are decorated in a modern Vietnamese style and packed with high-tech goodies; they also come with outdoor bathtubs, plunge pools, and butlers. Wine tastings are held on specially built platforms in the treetops, accessible by spiral staircase or rope bridge. Even the spa capitalizes on the Robinson Crusoe setting—it’s located in a forest clearing, above the swirling eddies of a fresh-water stream.

Hon Heo Peninsula; 84-583/624-777; epikurean.ws; villas from US$360
