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" (LAO TZU)
“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" (CLAUDE MONET)
The story began with a stunning waterfall, running through the area bringing life with it. Thirty-six gorgeous villas have been nestled on the mountainside. Inspired by ethnic stilt houses, they blend seamlessly into a backdrop of imposing forest, terrace rice fields, and the vast valley below. Ethnic craftsmen were invited to contribute their knowledge to this beautiful property and showcased their talent in the villa’s earth walls, rattan ceiling, and thatched roof.
"Mother Nature is the true artist, and our job as cooks is to allow her to shine" (MARCO PIERRE WHITE)
The intention behind every dish at Green Chili Restaurant is to evoke pleasant and unforgettable memories. The finest seasonal ingredients are chosen from a close circle of farmers and prepared in such a way as to maximize their flavor and connection to the regional culture. It is not just about the food itself but also about the cuisine being representative of our secret to happiness and good health.
"There is no better place to find yourself than sitting by a waterfall and listening to its music" (ROLAND R. KEMLER)
Walk on the wooden bridge and follow the mellow scents while letting the sound of the waterfall sweep you gently to Orchid Spa. Amid nature’s constant motion, this secluded place stands silently as a wellness sanctuary for travelers.
"Leave the roads, take the trails" (PYTHAGORAS)
This land never ceases to amaze us. It presents its own world with its unique voices, sounds, music, and secrets. Whether you walk deep into the jungle, enjoy a ride in a jeep, or simply sit silently on the balcony, every experience becomes a part of yourself.
