Legacy Yên Tử – A strong and humble testament to Vietnam’s past

Officially operated since August 2018, Legacy Yên Tử is a 5-star resort with 133 rooms built by famous architect Bill Bensley, the author of many luxury resorts in the world. Inspired by the ancient relics on Yen Tu mountain and meticulously designed to every detail, Legacy Yen Tu – MGallery is the quintessence inherited from the thousand-year history of Vietnam. The retreat area is completed with handcrafted furniture, with materials produced by traditional methods such as sackcloth made of jute fiber, rice husk walls, old-fashioned latched wooden doors and floors made from local pottery that are almost lost. 

Surrounded by the holy land of Yen Tu Mountain and its eternal energy, Legacy Yen Tu – MGallery offers a story allured stay together with exclusive experience for a moment of calm in such an inspiring cycle of life as well as for your inner peace. 

Belonging to Dong Trieu Arc, the highest peak is 1,068m. In the past, the mountain had the following names: Tuong Son, Bach Van, Phu Van, Linh Son, and An Tu. Yen Tu is a blessed land, a famous mountain and a spiritual place, recorded in the worship book.

Endless inspiration from thousands of years of culture and history

Yen Tu is the home of Vietnamese Buddhism originated, after the 12th-century King-Monk Tran Nhan Tong, the third king of the Tran dynasty, abdicated the throne and went to Yen Tu Mountain to practise and teach Buddhism, before founding the Truc Lam School of Zen. In the midst of its vast forests and impressive temples sits the Legacy Yen Tu MGallery, which was inspired by the local heritage and spirituality, and was built using ancient techniques.

Up on the misty ridges of the Yen Tu Mountain, a sacred Zen Buddhist site, the Legacy Yen Tu resembles an ancient palace, completed with stone corridors and handcrafted ceramic floor tiles sourced from northern villages. “Step inside and you’ll feel as if you’ve reached a new realm of calm” – said Legacy Yên Tử

Each of the mountain view rooms features local design elements that recall Tran’s dynasty, including burnt orange burlap and lotus flowers, brought to life as copper knobs on each door, incense jars, stuffed rice sacks, and more. Guests will hardly notice the absence of television – a purposeful exemption in order to maintain a sense of respite while indulging in yourself at this mystical property.

Whether you are here to trek or to seek spiritual guidance, doing so amid a natural forest and serene landscape is sure to unlock inner peace.
