A 70 room resort, restaurant and La Cochinchine Spa set in the rural highlands of Dalat, Vietnam comprising seventeen fully restored colonial-style villas, each originally constructed between the 1920’s and 1930’s by the French settlers of the time.

The area sits at an altitude of 1500 meters above sea level and has rolling mountainous with pine trees, Dalat became the summer hill-station retreat for royalty and high society in the 1920’s when it was discovered by Louis Pasteur and developed by Emperor Bao Dai.
