HOME AND AWAY
WITH a jazzy colour palette of orange and lime, and all the contemporary trimmings associated with the Angsana brand, a bright and buzzy resort in central Vietnam is set to attract Australian couples and families. Angsana Lang Co forms part of the 280ha Laguna integrated complex of a Nick Faldo-designed championship golf course, serene sister-property Banyan Tree Lang Co (an estate of dreamy pool villas) and future hotel sites. Best access is to fly to Da Nang from Singapore with Singapore Airlines’s offshoot SilkAir and arrange a transfer to Angsana Lang Co. Aside from all the expected resort amenities of multiple dining outlets, floral-scented spa, kids’ club and watersports centre, there’s a flexible array of accommodation styles. Pick of the offerings is a spacious Angsana Loft (one or two bedrooms) with several levels, outdoor terrace space, plunge pool and sea views. It’s just the spot to kick back between hanging out at Moomba tapas bar or the groovy Rice Bowl (fun lighting effects; bead-curtained table nooks). Sightseeing tours can be organised to nearby Hue, Hoi An and the heritage-listed ruins at My Son. More: angsana.com; silkair.com.
