10th anniversary of Banyan Tree Lang Co


Banyan Tree Lang Co, Central Vietnam

More than one hundred years ago...

…the natural beauty of Lang Co Bay was discovered by Emperor Khai Dinh.

On 18 May 1916, Nguyen Phuc Buu Dao became the nominal ruler of Annam (Vietnam). He took the name Khai Dinh for his reign, which meant "auger of peace and stability", and soon started his pilgrimage to Quang Nam as the 12th emperor of the Nguyen Dynasty. During the trip, he passed by Lang Co, and was captured by its breath-taking sea view that he decided to build his summer palace – the Résidence d’Été de L’Empereur d’ Annam. The summer residence of Annam Emperor was named Tinh Viem - to soothe summer's heat and humidity.

Even though the building was destroyed, visitors coming to Lang Co nowadays can still witness the granodiorite stele left by Khai Dinh Emperor, inscribed with a decree to order the Ministry of Public Instruction to build Tinh Viem - Résidence d’Été de L’Empereur d’ Annam, nearby An Cu Dong village (Lang Co village).

“When I look at mountains, I can see clusters of miraculous clouds flying from caves as fairies dancing on mountains, when I look down at the water, I can see waves, pushed by winds, running as if numerous horses gathering at sea.”

- The beauty of Lang Co Bay in Emperor Khai Dinh’s written. Dated 24 February, the fourth year of Khai Dinh Emperor (March 25, 1919)

Lang Co Bay

More than one decade ago...

…the natural beauty of Lang Co Bay was rediscovered and reimagined by the founders of Banyan Group.

Lang Co, in Khai Dinh's written, was the existed heaven with spectacular natural landscapes surrounded by mountains and jungles; sea filled with corals and various creatures; and finest white sand absorbed thousands of steps.

If you happen to stay at the Seaview or Oceanview Pool Villas at Banyan Tree Lang Co on beautiful days, you may have a chance to marvel at the majestic beauty of Lang Co Bay as described in the Emperor’s written.

Our efforts in giving back to the communities…

In the hope of bringing a better educational environment to local students, Banyan Tree Global Foundation (BTGF) funded the construction of two additional classrooms (56m2) and a library (112m2) at Binh An Primary School in 2019. After 26 years of operation, for the very first time, Binh An school has enough classrooms for all students, and “our dream has come true” as shared by Mr. Tran Xuan Tu, the school Head Master.
