Take a look at the best all-inclusive resorts in Vietnam.
Set on a private island off the shore of downtown Nha Trang, the four-and-a-half-pearl Vinpearl Luxury Nha Trang's stunning landscaping and neoclassical interiors enhance its beachfront location. Its 84 spacious, romantic rooms have handsome bathrooms with elegant slipper bathtubs and walk-in rainfall showers, and private plunge pools on secluded patios. Stunning spa treatment rooms are housed in thatched huts on stilts over the sea. The gym is similarly set, but it could use more equipment. Rates are all-inclusive, and meals, including the breakfast buffet, get good reviews. Guests get free entry to the nearby water amusement park, and airport transfers -- as well as transport from the mainland by speedboat or cable car -- are also included. For a similar level of luxury on the mainland, travelers could also consider the Evason Ana Mandara Nha Trang.
Chen Sea Resort is a luxurious, intimate property located on a sandy beach a 20-minute drive from central Duong Dong. Its 36 villas are beautiful and stylish, with upscale amenities, great bathrooms with separate rain showers and soaking tubs (some outdoors), and large terraces, many with sea views. Some villas are housed in original traditional houses brought from Hoi An and reassembled on-site. The gorgeous infinity pool is quiet and relaxing, with cushioned loungers, waiter service, and no music. The restaurant serves excellent Italian and Vietnamese cuisine in an open thatched pavilion with a large deck overlooking the sea, while GHE Lounge is popular for sunset drinks. Those seeking something a little cheaper may want to compare rates at Salinda Resort Phu Quoc Island, another excellent luxury pick located closer to the airport and the city.
Set on a long, sandy beach a five-minute drive from Mui Ne’s fishing harbor, upper-middle-range Pandanus Resort is known in Phan Thiet for three things: its comprehensive all-inclusive package, its huge pool, and its extensive breakfast buffet. The hotel’s 134 rooms and bungalows were fully renovated in 2016, and feature free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs with international channels, electric kettles, and minibars. The spa is small, but pleasant, with indoor and outdoor massage rooms, salon services, and an airy fitness center. All guests, regardless of their meal plan, are offered a great array of freebies, including daily yoga and tai chi classes, shuttle service to local main attractions and nightlife areas, and free wine and cheese hours. Those looking for something cheaper may want to compare rates at the Muine Bay Resort.
