Avana Retreat

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. Avana is the newest and most luxurious retreats in Mai Chau! Avana, meaning 'a beautiful wildflower', 28km from Mai Chau town, is a place you come to unwind and rejuvenate. Beautifully nestled in the northwest mountains in Vietnam, the 36-villa Avana Retreat is home to a few natural waterfalls, a terraced rice field, hills, and valleys. Here, you can wake up to fresh mountain air and a glimpse of nature outside your window, spend a day on the hiking trails, relax at the Orchid Spa hidden in a pristine forest, or find contentment in sitting quietly next to a waterfall.

Thirty-six bungalows, suites, and private pool villas, perched on the mountainside overlooking the valley, instill a sense of peacefulness. Each living space opens to a timeless mountain landscape with inviting sights and sounds of nature. Each luxurious bungalow, suite, and villa was meticulously designed to ensure privacy and comfort. Northwestern ethnic identities are blended in elegantly, through the rattan ceilings, the earth walls, and thatched roof.
