The Flamingo Spa
We each had a complimentary service from their spa. I made sure I tried their full body massage. While waiting we were served some soothing tea. The spa rooms have state-of-the-art facilities from massage beds and chairs that looks more exquisite. I only had a few English word exchange and hand signals with the masseuse I got but I really like how professional and skillfull her massage was. The strokes were soothing not deep which is really good for relaxing. Her hands were firm and steady which is a sign of a good masseuse for me. I definitely got my time’s worth and felt rejuvinated after the session.
Bamboo Wings Restaurant
It was an evening to perfectly cap-off our Hanoi trip and Bamboo Wings Restaurant was a fitting culmination. Wonderful architecture of bamboo roofing bended like a bird’s wing. Marble tiles and the lovely trees standing over still waters. Its a beautiful restaurant. Even on a cool evening there were heater lamps we stood near by for warmth. The food served where more than delicious as well.
Flamingo Dai Lai Resort is one of those out-of-town escapes from Hanoi that can be done on a weekend. It’s an all a-rounder and have something from everyone. For business meetings, corporate team buildings, wedding and pre-nuptial shoots, family outings and even people who simply love the outdoors. The place is still in development but from what it looks now its a destination for a wonderful getaway near the city.
