The Mid-Autumn Festival is a time for families and children of all ages to come together in celebration and there is no better place to do that than at Pandanus.

The spectacular gardens at Pandanus Resort don even more enticing hues between October 1 and October 3 (from the 15th to the 17th day of the eighth month on the lunar calendar) when they are filled with colourful lanterns lit-up to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival.
Under the light of the full moon, you will have the unique opportunity to dine in this peaceful beachfront setting, surrounded by an abundance of lanterns, handcrafted in the shapes of various folk animals, and glowing with a multitude of colours. Every shape has its own story or meaning. Rabbit shapes represent the moon, toad shapes of prayers for good weather, and fish shapes to remind of the tale of a carp that swam upstream, leapt over the falls of the Yellow River at Dragon’s Gate, and was transformed into a dragon, representing future prosperity.
All of this with the sound of ocean waves crashing ashore, the wind gently blowing through the coconut trees, and the harmonious resonance of the lively tunes performed by the resort’s in-house Stardust Band from the Philippines.
The Mid-Autumn holiday tray of the Pandanus Resort will include the indispensable Savoure moon cakes. These holiday favorites are made from refreshing lotus seeds, combined with the rich taste of green beans and salted eggs and the unique sweetness of coconut, melon seeds, and dragon fruit – a local delicacy of Binh Thuan province. Feasting on moon cakes, sipping warm tea, and chatting with your family is the essence of this traditional holiday.
On October 1 and 2, Pandanus Resort features a local Mui Ne set dinner with grilled seafood. On the third of October, the resort offers a huge barbecue buffet dinner, which includes many local dishes from the Mui Ne and Phan Thiet area, prepared and perfectly presented with the chef’s secret tips. The buffet dinner is offered for only VND566,000 ($24.60), but for reservations prior to 12 noon on the third, the price is reduced by 20 per cent.
