Aravinda Resort

Ninh Binh

Between Hoa Lu’s misty mountains, surrounded by calm lotus ponds and rice fields, the Aravinda Resort is a chic, tranquil retreat where you can take a break from the urban bustle. A haven of relaxation and calm. The staff are focused on taking guests on a journey of wellness and discovery, helping you to explore the surroundings on foot, by bike or via a captivating boat trip.

The villas and suites are built from natural materials that connect with the resort’s wilderness setting, whilst minimalist interiors create a contemporary feel. Take a long soak in a freestanding stone bathtub, and admire the beautiful scenery through floor-to-ceiling windows, before dining in the stylish restaurant where ethically-sourced, local ingredients come together in a range of healthy (and delicious) Vietnamese dishes.


Located in Ninh Binh, sometimes known as ‘Halong on land’ for its jaw dropping landscape, Aravinda Resort is approximately 2.5 hours drive from Hanoi international airport.

Why we love it

Balance & variety

Whether you’re looking for adventure, discovery or relaxation, Aravinda ticks all the boxes. We love the balance of how you can spend your time: exploring local life, getting active cycling through the rice paddies, or completely immersing yourself in relaxation. If you’re a little short on time in Vietnam, it offers a great base - not far from Hanoi - to experience a bit of everything.

What can you do there?

Explore the surrounding area on foot or by bike, take a boat trip on the river, and spend time in local villages, before returning to the resort for afternoon tea by the lake, a cooling dip in the pool, and a pampering treatment or two at the spa.
