Fall in Love With Vietnam’s Colonial Charms at Anantara Hoi An Resort
A charming boutique retreat situated along Vietnam’s central coast, Anantara Hoi An Resort is scenically positioned on the banks of the Thu Bon River, only 35 kilometres from Da Nang International Airport with frequent direct flights to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.
Follow in the footsteps of the merchants who once traded their precious goods in Hoi An and immerse yourselves in the town’s colonial architecture, vibrant artistic and handicraft scenes, and romantic café culture. Stroll down the riverside walkway to the bustling Ancient Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, taking in charming open air cafes, bustling local markets and street life. Those with a spirit of adventure can cycle through weaving country lanes to the village of Cam Nam, and head back on a cruise boat in time for Anantara’s signature Dining by Design experience. Promising the ultimate in tailor-made romance, you will be invited to choose from a collection of fine-dining menus to be prepared by a personal chef, and then to dine in a private poolside pavilion with an exquisite river vista, as a butler tends to your every need.
After the day exploring Hoi An, retreat to your private room or suite balcony, furnished with cushioned daybeds, to admire the boats gliding along the tranquil waterway and peaceful village life on the opposite bank. Inside, relax with a book, watch a movie or catch up on emails in the lower lounge space. Sleep in a beautifully appointed bedroom with a luxury en-suite bathroom and wake up to sip a tea or coffee outside in the cool morning air, as the river comes to life. If you are seeking the ultimate luxury, the prestigeous Anantara River View Suite, offering a one-of-a-kind sanctuary with a wealth of superior amenities, boasts a stunning balcony with swinging daybeds to cosy up in.
Start the next day with a sumptuous breakfast at Lanterns and escape to one of the pristine local beaches located five kilometres from the resort and reachable by bicycle or boat from the private jetty. Back at the resort, recharge with a lunch at Riverside Café on the waterfront terrace cooled by a river breeze and spend the afternoon lazying by the pool in the idyllic garden courtyard. Treat yourselves to a spot of pampering with Anantara Spa’s range of nourishing scrubs and wraps, heavenly massages and rejuvenating facials.
