In the evening you can set up BBQ Grill in the restaurant area.

Our cuisine features plant-based cuisine in celebration of our “aliveness.” Our goal is simple: To let mother nature’s cuisine shine with all the exciting tastes, textures, vibrant colors and pure flavours. The food we serve is prepared with love, passion and attention to detail. Our menu is designed to give optimal plant-based nutrition and high energy whilst inspiring a gastronomic journey aimed to nurture body, mind and soul. This process starts with sourcing the finest organic ingredients at the height of their season to honour the earth and ourselves, as we are one and the same.


Weak cell phone signals &  wifi!

Weak cell phone signal from our property. We encourage disconnecting yourself from everything once you are here. However viettel have good network in this area. 

No ATMs, no stores, no nightlife. We are located off the beaten track. For any purchase, additional service or needs at the resort, we can only accept CASH payment 


Bugs, insects & more!

You live here in nature. The Shanti Resort is fully immersed with nature. Since it is located too close to nature, it is unavoidable to see some bugs, insects, etc. Enjoy the simplicity, and reconnect with nature, once again. Lac Duong is a natural hill area and consequently, sometimes there are bugs, spiders and other insects around. We carry out pest control services on a weekly basis to diminish their presence. But being so close & within nature, they are often seen & are not dangerous, however, we have provided a mosquito net for your peace of mind.


Expect back to basic!

We have limited staff only. Everything here is back to basic and not as a commercial resort or hotel. This is a remote location where you can only enjoy fresh air, beautiful views, peace and relaxation.
