(It may look a bit different now than you recall)

From their website

"Nestled on the shore of a peaceful and serene lagoon, Vedanā Lagoon Resort and Spa is ideally situated to offer stunning views across one of the largest lagoons in southeast Asia. The resort lies between two cities well-known as world heritage sites: Hue and Hoi An.

Hue and DaNang airports are both approximately 60 minutes flying time from Ho Chi Minh or Hanoi. In addition, there are direct flights from Singapore to DaNang.

Vedanā Lagoon Resort and Spa is just 25 minutes from Hue airport and 60 minutes from DaNang international airport by car."
