Avana Retreat

Find your natural-self


Welcome to Avana Retreat where remarkable landscapes meet tribal heritages. Located among three ethnic groups deep in a tropical forest, Avana represents the inseparable connection between nature and people.

   Love the world as your own self,
then you can truly care for all things

Our Story

“Act first, think later” was what our founders had in mind when they decided to acquire this 15-hectare area. Although they had no real vision of what they wanted to do with it, they knew that somehow they wanted to preserve the natural beauty and local heritage from the kind of mass-tourism development that has overrun other beautiful, natural spots in Vietnam.

My wish is to stay always like this, living quietly in the corner of nature


The story began with a stunning waterfall, running through the area bringing life with it. Thirty-six gorgeous villas nestle on the mountainside and await a luxury retreat in the midst of nature. Inspired by ethnic culture, rattan ceilings, earth walls, and thatched roof blend seamlessly into a backdrop of imposing forest, terraced rice fields, and the vast valley below.

There is no better place to find yourself than
sitting by a waterfall and listening to its music 

Orchid Spa

Walk on the wooden bridge and follow the mellow scents while letting the sound of the waterfall sweep you gently to Orchid Spa. Selections of traditional Vietnamese remedies are ready to ease your body and mind into the harmony of soft springs, birds singing, and leaves fluttering. Amid nature’s constant motion, this secluded place stands silently as a wellness sanctuary for travellers.

Leave the roads, take the trails


This land never ceases to amaze us with its unique voices, sounds, music, and secrets. Whether you trek into the jungle, paddle through the waters, ride across the beaten tracks on a Jeep, or simply sit by the balcony on a meditative moment, every experience becomes a part of yourself.

Stay close to nature and let your heart bloom lively. Rise to the light of dawn up in the hills, dive in the veneer-clear water with your feet patting onto the rocks by midday, and rekindle your love under the night sky, adorn with dimming candles, soft melodies and a lovely set up amidst the nature.

H'mong Cottage

Avana’s Yoga and Meditation classes take place on an adobe nestled in the quietest corner of Orchid Spa. Gently liven up your mind and body amid stillness with the guidance of the instructor. Master your breath, calm your mind, and let your senses loose to the beauty of the present.



Private time among the breathtaking nature is on offer at Pung Waterfall - the beating heart of Avana Retreat. At dusk, you and your loved ones will have the waterfall to yourself, as the scene ignites in candlelight and enchantment. There will be champagne, flowers, gourmet food, and dreams of romance come true in the beautiful sound of gentle fountains.



Hidden Spring Lagoon

Hidden Spring Lagoon is one of Avana Retreat's best-kept secrets. Come take a dip in the cool spring water with a cocktail in your hand, surrounded by the lovely atmosphere of the forest. 

Hidden Spring Lagoon is open according to weather conditions. (At some period of time, the water will dry out due to low upstream flow.)
