we booked the 4 nights romance package through the website which included breakfast, transfers, a welcome bottle of wine and a fruit basket, a dinner in the wine cave and a spa treatment.
the dinner in the wine cave was amazing. Just me and the husband in a cave, surrounded by candles and a waiter serving us lovely food. It was the favourite dining experience for us. We also had dinner on the rocks. This was a six course dinner. The service was very good and was a great experience although the food was a little haute cuisine and fancy for our tastes and the location on the rocks was lost in the dark. It may be a better location for the champagne breakfast that they offer.
We also had the barbeque in our villa, which again was a great experience and the amount of food you get is immense!
we were in hilltop villa 8 which is a fair walk up the mountain but more than worth it for the views and privacy - we were not overlooked at all. We didn't tire of the view for the whole time. We also had a monkey visitor who came to look in through the window on the first day and came back a couple of times but he was a little nervy so we didn't get a picture.
It is no doubt expensive, and probably the only time we will be able to justify spending that much, but if you can afford it for a holiday or even just for a night I would highly recommend it. We went to the evason in nha trang as our plane was delayed and there is no comparison between the two. It is also a great way to stay in a six senses hotel as I had looked into the ones in oman and koh samui but they were almost twice the cost of the ones in vietnam.
Word of warning about flights - we were delayed both ways, around an hour on the way there and 4+ on the way back. Our butler said the flights are very often delayed so bear this in mind of you are booking connecting flights. Luckily we had a night stop over in HCMC before flying home so we did not miss the flight.
Negatives - our wifi broke and was not fixed until the next day. A rather slow process.
We were told we had a late check out of 2.30 but then were called at 12 to say we had to leave immediately. We were offered the use of rock villa 3 (amazing views but overlooked by another villa) but the whole frantically packing was a big inconvenience and not a relaxing end to the holiday. I know some would use these complaints to mark the place down and I suppose when you are paying so much and for a place that obviously aims to provide excellent immaculate service, these two occassions do fall a little short. However, nothing can take away from the experience so I haven't let it alter our score.
