Around the Henry Hotel

By | Accomodations | No Comments

Since the Henry Hotel is part of a compound of homes and occupies only 6 out of the 15 houses there, there are still other residents and other houses there

Like Jojie Lloren :-)  This is also where he meets his clients.

Love old homes, you can never build them from scratch and they have so much historyAround the Henry Hotel (17)

Peeking through the window of Jojie Lloren’s home!! So nice!!!Around the Henry Hotel (3)

 All the houses in the compound look the same but the ones renting may have changed or refurbished them a bit so they all have their own unique character

I don’t know whose home this is :-)Around the Henry Hotel (7)

There is a gallery there but we were not able to enter since it was closed the time we were there

Another beautiful place discovered!!! This time in Central Vietnam.  If you want solitude, peace, relaxation and time away from the world, this is a good place to be :-)  It’s an hour and a half from Danang airport and there is nothing around the place, so you have no choice but to stay and just relax haha!!Banyan Tree (32)

Azumi Boutique Hotel – A Villa

By | Accomodations | No Comments

 There is only one suite (A Villa) in Azumi Hotel which is on the rooftop / penthouse floor (17th flr). This is where we stayed. It is by the hotel pool and has a 360 degree view. As I feature this, this has been removed already so we are lucky to have stayed here. Romulo Cafe will turn it into a restaurant or rooftop bar.   Construction started right after we checked out a few weeks agoAzimut Boutique Hotel - A Villa (5)

 View from the villaAzimut Boutique Hotel - A Villa (2)

 The pool is actually open to all the hotel residents so during the day there are a lot of people in the pool.  So there is not much privacy in the A Villa but at 10pm – the pool is closed so the whole top floor is yoursAzimut Boutique Hotel - A Villa (3)

 Looking into the A Villa :-)  It’s the living room and dining table with kitchen -On the other side is the view on the other side of the building which is a more private balcony – no one can go to that balcony.  The hubby is working again on our staycation haha!!Azimut Boutique Hotel - A Villa (6)
