Vietnamese resorts, world class layouts
Update: Mar 15, 2022
Vietnam boasts some resorts that have repeatedly been labeled overseas as the best, finest or most beautiful of the region and the world. Below are some resorts of stunning layout to never cease amazing mortal eyes.

H’Mong village (Trang Kim commune, Quan Ba district, Ha Giang) is well rising to stardom on the social media with bungalows in the shape of rattan baskets, which are inexorably associated with a typical Hmong life. Baskets are indeed their own rucksacks which enable them to carry and back merchandises, even babies regardless of terrains, up to terraces or down the market. The resort cluster is nested over hills, overlooking Mien river and towering yonder mountains on the horizon. Basket shaped bungalows aside; the resort also hosts 4 twin rooms, 3 dorms of 40 single beds and an outdoor infinity pool. 100% of rooms are constructed out of environmentally friendly materials such as clay and wood like rammed earth houses, thus cool in summer and warm in winter. Each room is plainly let be, glowing with unmistakable local charm and superb convenience. In particular, all rooms are meant to face the sunrise, so just a light touch of the veil enables our heart to glow with maiden rays of the blushing sun.

Flamingo Cat Ba

Flamingo Cat Ba (Cat Ba town, Hai Phong) is located by stretchy Cat Co beach. All rooms here are laid out like a giant hanging garden of approximately 50,000 trees and vines presiding over balconies on all four facades. All wings are connected altogether by a “cloud bridge” on which visitors should freely travel in the air an make the most of the charm of the world’s most beautiful bay. The resort puts great focus on design of check-in spots and sightseeing spots of Lan Ha bay. The resort boasts 256 bedrooms, 60 hanging villas and one Presidential villa atop the whole cluster, which wholly overlooks the bay.

An Lam Retreats Ninh Van Bay (Ninh Hoa town, Khanh Hoa) strikes us with its restaurant in the shape of a blossoming lotus on the sea, deploying authentic wood and bamboo. This resort is perched on a peninsula of Ninh Van bay, priding itself in a primordial forest, natural fountains and of course a stretchy beach. Here visitors should retreat into absolute privacy and safety, well away from the urban hustle and bustle. This accommodation cluster hosts 37 beachfront and forest bungalows in total, each of which has 1 to 3 bedrooms. Besides, visitors can also take part in kayaking, a cruise trip to admire the sunset, a visit to shrimp and fish farm, a long stroll along fountains or simply relaxation with a 60-minute spa therapy.

I-resort Nha Trang.

I-Resort Nha Trang (Unit 19, Xuan Ngoc village, Vinh Ngoc ward, Nha Trang city, Khanh Hoa) is a mineral spring resort, thus never in lack of hot springs and natural mud ponds. Spanning 12ha in total, the resort is designed to be a little oasis, lushly forested by thousands of trees, 3-layer waterfall and a water park… A hi-end accommodation cluster consists of 9 bungalows and 5 villas that deploy available materials such as wood, stone, water coconut leaves, or even flower tiles and recycled window frames. Wings are laid out in straight row planted on the rugged mountain surface. Besides, all rooms are equipped with 1 or 2 semi-outdoor pool supplied with natural hot mineral water.

InterContinental Danang Sun Penisula

InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula (Northern Beach, Son Tra peninsula, Da Nang city): Nested on Son Tra peninsula, InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is a flawless blend of pristine nature and quintessentially Vietnamese architecture. What sets this resort apart is its prime hillside location and superb view to the bay, further ensuring privacy for all guests. It’s one of the 21 most beautiful seaside resorts of the world, as voted by the CNN.

Four Seasons The Nam Hai

Four Seasons The Nam Hai (East Ha My B Quarter, Dien Duong ward, Dien Ban town, Quang Nam): This resort is located on Ha My beach, Hoi An city. The resort is stunning, spacious and uniquely designed. The recognizable architecture of this resort was inspired by Emperor Tu Duc mausoleum in Hue. The resort now hosts roughly 100 villas, 40 of which are equipped with private pool. The resort was voted by the Travel + Leisure as the resort with world’s best design in 2008, and 5th by the Luxury Travel (Australia) in the best foreign resort in 2016.

Viet Nam has way more than superlative forests and seas, but also abundance of uniquely designed luxury resorts that any foreign visitors are barely enough to explore.
