The Pandanus Resort is a horticultural paradise, with a myriad of lush, colorful tropical plants and flowers imaginatively displayed throughout the resort’s ten hectares. Although the resort itself is located on an immaculate white sand beach, it is just below Mai Ne’s famed red sand dunes.
Panadus’ 124 rooms, suites and bungalows all feature free wifi, IDD telephones, cable TV, mini-bars, robes and slippers, hair dryers, coffee and tea making residential units throughout the gardens guarantee ample sunlight, while the public buildings are designed in the architecture style of Champa, with traditional high wooden ceilings. The lobby, lounge and main restaurant face descending lotus ponds, a hallmark of ancient Cham communities.
Dining at the Pandanus is a delightful experience. Cham musicians perform in the Café Blue Lagoon every evening, while diners enjoy a delightful array of Vietnamese and western specialties. The Sun Terrace Restaurant at poolside offers light fare during the day for those who are basking in the sun beside the resort’s large free-form pool. The Waterfall Lounge includes a full bar with snacks, two billiard tables and live music performances by the resort’s renowned in-house band, ‘Stardust’. When not performing in the lounge, Stardust performs at the poolside barbeque buffets every Saturday night in the summer season and up to three times a week in the winter.
For the active set, the Pandanus provides guests with free tai chi instruction daily, complimentary use of the tennes and badminton courts, beach volleyball, a fitness center, bicycles, kiddies corner, a game room and a discotheque. The hotel also provides Vietnamese cooking classes daily. Guests wishing to leave all cares behind can indulge in a restorative massage or body treatment at the spa center.
