A few weekends ago, Si and I took a short weekend trip to Dalat. Dalat is known as the romance capital of Vietnam. Many married couples go there for their honeymoon. Si and I went to finalize some of our wedding planning and get in some much needed breath of fresh air from our busy schedules.
Dalat is a short 45 minute plane ride from Ho Chi Minh City. We stayed at the one year old resort Dalat Edensee. The property offers picturesque views of Tuyen Lam Lake and surrounding mountains with lush greenery. The weather was perfect with a light jacket only needed in the evening. The cooler temperature was a welcoming change from the Saigon heat.
We first stayed at the Deluxe Lake View for the first night. We wanted a better view of the lake and we upgraded to the Eden Suite for an additional charge. The staff was very accommodating and gave us a later check-out as our flight was at 9:30PM. This allowed us to enjoy more time on the property to really have a relaxing getaway until the very end of our trip. We found that the room service menu was reasonably priced compared to the restaurant menu. We ordered room service twice, and was pleased by the portions and quality of the dishes.
A complimentary buffet breakfast was served until 9:30AM everyday. The offering was light compared to other five star hotels that I have been to. They had a mix of continental and Vietnamese fare.
Dalat only made us re-confirm why we love traveling within Vietnam. You can find something for any type of traveling wanderlust!
