Breakfast all day, every day

If you’re a ‘breakfast all day, every day’ sort of person, Alba’s signature breakfast is for you. Available anywhere, anytime – opt for breakfast in bed, poolside or even at sunset on your private terrace.

With four restaurants onsite, you’ll be spoilt for dining choices. Madame Chau offers fine dining with 360-degree views over Lotus Lake, laidback Mori restaurant serves light Western and vegetarian dishes. Hoa Sua dishes up Vietnamese specialties like Alba spring rolls, Hue beef noodles, simmered shrimp with honey, and braised pork with sour bamboo shoots. For casual dining, mosey over to Phong Lan, the open-air restaurant is perfect for basking in the sunshine while savouring seasonal fresh fruits.

Planning a romantic dinner? Experience an in-forest private barbecue with your loved one. The culinary team at Alba Wellness Valley will set up everything you need while you sip a cocktail and watch the sunset.

Things to do in Hue and the surrounds

The resort’s seclusion provides a welcoming all-inclusive break yet maintains local proximity to areas such as the Tinh Tam Lake and Hue, the main city nearby and well worth the visit. Once the imperial city of Vietnam, the area is steeped with historical and cultural must-sees. It’s home to impressive monuments and architectural sites like the walled citadel of Forbidden Purple City, Ngo Mon Gate and the tombs of Emperor Minh Mang and Tu Duc.
