About Matt Murphy
Thuan was born and bred in An Bang. His wife Gam is from Hanoi. A pioneer with holiday accommodation in An Bang, near Hoi An, Thuan and Gam has built many different styles of accommodation and each one is an iteration of what they learned each time. Having hosted 1,000's of guests over the years, they have learned a lot. The Chi Villa is the latest in their vast knowledge of design and functionality and hospitality.
Matt Murphy purchased this Villa in 2016
Why Matt Murphy chose Cẩm An
The Chi Villa is the latest project for the couple. Designed to let the outdoors in, all rooms have doors and windows opening to the terrace, pool or balcony. A modern and well equipped kitchen, living area and oh so comfy bedrooms compliments the stunning pool outside. Tucked away in a quiet lane way in the village, it is a 1 minute walk to the beach, though you may find it difficult to leave. The Chi Villa has been designed to provide all the trimmings you'd find in a 5 star resort without having to share it with other guests. It is your own private retreat. An English and Vietnamese host are your concierge. A chef prepares breakfast in the Villa for you daily and our hassle free complimentary airport transfers make life so, so easy. We have a private chef on call, housekeepers, security and your laundry is free to boot!
What makes this Villa unique
The Chi Villa is private. It's yours. The Chi Villa was designed to be all about you. We've added light and airy spaces, a lovely swimming pool. Although it has all the modern conveniences you'd expect of a luxe Villa, it also have very historical Vietnamese art sprinkled throughout. The art is a very important part of Thaun and Gam's journey. Though it is view you of the Villa once the private gates are opened, that makes it special. It's open, breezy, and all yours. Only 1 minute walk to the beach and the beach restaurants, it is the combination of the quality accommodation with all the trimmings, located in a little lane way in a quaint through developing fishing village with a stunning beach and beachfront restaurants. It really is the best of both worlds. The UNESCO World Heritage listed Old Town of Hoi An is only 10 minutes by taxi.

A very nice house in the neighborhood
Quiet, with plenty of room to relax, big bedrooms, each with a bathroom and a shower both inside and outdoors. A block away from the beach tucked down a lane of houses for the local folks. Three wonderful ladies showed up whenever we requested and fixed just about whatever we wanted for breakfast. Located a quick cab ride from the ancient city, in an ocean front neighborhood of great restaurants on the beach and some small shops that serve the locals. The little restaurant on the corner delivered to us three times for a casual dinner, and the food was great each time. We were five adult family members, and this house was a very good place to get caught up with each other, enjoy some time on a nice beach, and visit Hoi An. We got a little insight into every day life in Viet Nam, but from a very comfortable vantage point.
Absolutely perfect stay at the Chi Villa!!
I stayed at the Chi Villa with my family on a short visit to Hoi An this October and we loved it! The house was even better than the photos and the service was impeccable. From the minute we arrived Lam and her team took care of our every need, even providing us with a cell phone to use while we were there to make it easy to reach her at any time of the day. All of our arrangements were taken care of seamlessly, Lam was able to take care of all communications for us making it quick and easy to plan activities. The complimentary breakfast each morning was so delicious! We were looking forward to ordering every day.
The accommodations are beautiful and spacious with an outdoor shower in every room, pretty amazing to shower by moonlight each night. There was more than enough space for the five of us to relax, spread out, and not get in each others way. Each morning after breakfast Lam and her team would clean the entire villa and put things away.
The house is in a charming location that's away from the hustle bustle and tourist packed areas, but still just an 8 minute cab ride to all the action. We never had a problem getting to or from the villa with the exception of the full moon festival night, which is notoriously busy. We didn't get a chance to ride bikes around the neighborhood as it was a little rainy while we were there but did see a lot of foreigners riding bikes to and from town on the same road we were taking.
Thank you for your kind feedback. We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay. It is really important to us that you are happy, comfortable and well cared for. We only have a couple of months each year when it rains, so it is a shame it was a little rainy when you were here. We look forward to welcoming you again when you next return to Vietnam and Hoi An. Until then, all the best. The team at Chi Villa, Hoi An
Beautiful villa in a peaceful setting
We had a wonderful six nights at Chi Villa. We were picked up from the airport without delay and greeted warmly when we arrived. Loved the layout of the villa. Plenty of communal and private spaces. The kitchen is fully functional. Breakfast was cooked each morning and on two evenings we had dinner parties. The pool was great. The bedrooms very spacious and decorated with a rustic charm. Plenty of local marble used for the surfaces and floors. The bathrooms all modern and functional with a connecting outdoor shower constructed around a lovely garden. The beach is a five minute walk. Mornings on the beach and afternoons by the pool for us. Hospitality is all about the people who deliver and the house keepers went beyond expectations. People often talk about the Thai smile but wait till you experience the charm of the Vietnamese smile. Our hosts really were the icing on the cake. There is plenty of choice for dinning in the surrounding area and the Old Town is no more than ten minutes in a cab, which there are a plenty. It was so easy to feel at home away from home. Would love to come back one day. Highly recommended.
Excellente prestation d’ensemble
Très belle villa récente avec un superbe décoration et une belle piscine en marbre située dans un charmant village à proximité d’une belle plage bordée de restaurants sympathiques
L’équipe qui gère la villa est efficace et aux petits soins pour ses hôtes
Ecellents petits déjeuners
Revers de la médaille du fait que ce soit un endroit très fréquenté et animé les environs peuvent être bruyants
Although you may not want to leave the Villa, An Bang is a 10 minute taxi ride to the UNESCO listed Old Town of Hoi An. Best to visit in the morning or evening when it is cooler and be sure to check out the festival every Saturday evening. Filled with tailors, lantern shops and a number of higher end shops opened by local designers, it's a great visit. It's the architecture though that will win your heart. Take your camera. The dining options are endless and we will provide you with a map and guide with everything you need to know on arrival. An Bang is where our Villa is located. It's a sleepy fishing village, though the steady stream of tourists means it's growing into a lovely quiet seaside retreat. Dining options here abound - The Deckhouse restaurant is our favourite. If's on the beach with great food. Be sure to check it out. Soul Kitchen is next door and offers a daily selection of live music. Lien Ca is a great local eatery next to Soul Kitchen on the beach. Woodfire pizza is also great for those looking for some home comfort food. Seashell by Nu is an amazing Vietnamese Fusion restaurant and the food is highly recommended. The beach speaks for itself. In the summer, it's blue and crystal clear. You can relax on a day bed for hours enjoying a drink and chill.The village is easily navigable by bicycle and they are complimentary. It's unique and not to be missed. The local An Bang people are incredibly friendly and welcoming to all comers. They rise with the sun and hit the beach for their daily exercise and start their fishing day. If you are up for sunrise on the beach, it's spectacular to watch the local fishing culture.
