VIETNAM’S newest hotel will delight Francophiles with the Mercure Bana Hills French Village taking its inspiration from a mountain-top settlement in the south of France.
The resort is a 30-minute drive from Da Nang and has 494 modern guestrooms in six categories – standard and deluxe rooms as well as executive, family and royal suites – with some chambers offering mountain views and others looking over the neighbouring faux-French buildings.
The location presents a lofty vista across the magnificent Central Highlands to the South China Sea, and is so high that the perch will be above the fog that often rolls through the deep valleys below at dawn and dusk.
There are seven food-and-beverage outlets dotted around the Mercure Bana Hills including a fine-dining option at La Crique and Vietnamese cuisine at Le Table while those looking for something light can settle at La Taverne to enjoy a drink or bar meal while savouring some live entertainment.
Mercure Bana Hills French Village also offers a variety of recreational activities with a state-of-the-art fitness centre, spa delivering pampering treatments, an indoor pool, French-style gardens placed to frame view, and new golf course at the base of the mountain just the start of the facilities ready for in-house guests.
“Visitors to Bana Hills can look forward to the beautiful views of mountain tops and scenic surrounds of the luxurious resort,” says general manager Shane Edwards.
“Located on a six-hectare area that consists of 20th century’s French-styled castles and houses, Mercure Bana Hills offer an authentic experience for both business and leisure travellers with the spectacular views of Da Nang and unique architectural surrounds.”
