Description

Avana, which translates to “a beautiful flower”, portrays a beautiful wild blossom nourished by nature and its environment to bloom at its best in its native land.

Imagined, conceptualized, built and managed by the Co-Owners of Easia Travel, Avana Retreat is a high-end mountain resort in Northern Vietnam that has been designed to represent a genuine love for the environment. Located within walking distance of nearby ethnic villages, Avana Retreat is able to simultaneously absorb and showcase local heritage while being far enough away to remain tranquil and secluded.

Avana Retreat is a genuine synergy of nature, culture & sustainability.

The Pung Waterfall, the heart of Avana, is the very origin of the Retreat. Ten years ago, Avana’s founders came upon a natural waterfall while trekking through the Pung Village. The stunning beauty they discovered was the seed that inspired the project.

A decade later, a total of 41 Villas, including 3 luxurious Pool Villas, dot the mountainside overlooking the unspoiled beauty of Mai Chau just 3.5 hours from the country’s capital Hanoi.

Every element of Avana Retreat, even the smallest detail, has been carefully curated to develop a calm, relaxing environment in total harmony with nature and local ethnic people.

Avana Retreat is a true sustainable property
– 5,000+ trees planted
– 90% local manpower
– Plastic-free retreat
– Purified drinking water produced on spot at Avana’s on-site bottling center to reduce deliveries
– Green programs created in harmony with local authorities
