Bottom Line

The Nam Hai Hoi An is a 100-villa luxury resort on gorgeous Ha My Beach between Hoi An and Da Nang. This is one of the region's most elegant resorts, incorporating contemporary design with traditional Vietnamese touches. Spacious villas come with private terraces and some even have private plunge pools right on the beach. Other features include two restaurants and a bar, three pools, tennis, and loaner bicycles. The full-service spa features pavilions over a lagoon, and kids have their own activity villa and game room. Rates here match the hotel's exclusive air, though there are lots of nice freebies like cocktail hours and breakfast. Those looking for a taste of luxury with a cheaper price tag should consider Sunrise Hoi An Beach Resort, though its style isn't as impeccable.

Scene

Ultra-stylish beachfront resort that stands out against all others in the region

The Nam Hai is quite possibly the most stylish luxury property in the Hoin An-Da Nang region, and the air here is exclusive and chic while remaining laid back and relaxing. This exquisite property sits on expansive, well-landscaped grounds that offer gorgeous views of the ocean from several vantage points, including some of the private villas. Clean, sleek lines contrast with abundant greenery almost everywhere guests look, from the sharp gray marble walkways that cut through emerald lawns and rows of palm trees to the low-slung villas with naturally shingled pagoda roofs. Guests check in at the open-air registration pavilion, which is surrounded by terraces, lush plantings, and water features. All sorts of travelers make their way here, though the rates make it accessible to travelers on the well-off end of the spectrum: couples find it romantic and private while families appreciate the spacious villas and family-friendly services.

Location

In a quiet residential area on the beach between Hoi An and Da Nang
