|AZILY running along the east coast of Central Vietnam in an almost unbroken swathe of alluring white sand, China Beach has captured the popular imagination like no other sun-and-sand playground. And it is here, on a prime stretch of Ha My Beach near the historic city of Hoi An that The Nam Hai stakes its claim as perhaps the best Vietnam luxury resort, 30km south of Danang.
The Nam Hai is no ordinary beachfront getaway. It sets a new benchmark for sybarites in search of real tropical class. Sprawled across 35 hectares, this splendid Vietnam spa resort opened in December 2006 offering 60 elegant Villas and a further 40 Pool Villas each within landscaped gardens with unobstructed views across the azure South China Sea on to the mist-wreathed Cham Islands.
Great care has been taken to harmonise seamlessly with nature and the design flows along traditional lines with useful modern
|touches, like handy Internet access for pin-stripers on the move. Stay abreast of stocks and shares and global markets whilst losing yourself in simple pleasures. Enjoy the spacious bedrooms with en suite baths, walk-in closets, and high ceilings, all adding to a heightened sense of space. The decor at this Hoi An beach resort is simple yet chic, the lines minimalist with none of the clutter associated with hotels that try too hard.
The Pool Villas also offer a butler’s station, a maid’s room and a temperature-adjustable pool for a dip anytime of the year. The villas are stylish and inviting in a warm and personal way. For a luxury Vietnam beach hotel with excellent spa facilities, look no further. And, if it’s water sports you crave, just step onto the beach and get walking, or playing.
The Nam Hai, Hoi An is managed by fast-growing Singapore-based GHM Hotels who specialise in upmarket boutique resorts, often combining the traditional with unique contemporary flair.
