Along Vietnam’s S-shaped coast, Hoi An stands out for its Unesco-listed old town and authentic resorts that nod the port city’s past as a historic trading hub.

Ancient trading post Hoi An, on Vietnam’s central coast, is three treasures in one: an atmospheric old town, known for its lantern-lit streets, age-old shopfronts and a thriving textiles industry where you can get tailor-made clothes in a matter of days; a tranquil riverside retreat, with serene restaurants gracing the banks of the Thu Bon and De Vong; and a buzzy beachfront base, with miles of coffee shops and cool bars lining the sandy strip between Cua Dai and An Bang. It’s no surprise, then, that there are scores of resorts to choose from. Here are the very best that Hoi An has to offer.

Anantara Hoi An Resort

Holiday in style at Anantara Hoi An Resort, located on the banks of the Thu Bon River and a 15-minute walk from the Unesco-listed “Ancient Town” (old town), where the buildings date back to the city’s golden era as a trading port between the 15th and 19th centuries. Reflecting the area’s melting-pot makeup, the hotel’s 94 rooms and suites are designed in a spacious split-level layout, blending French, Chinese and Japanese architecture. Staff can arrange a 4×4 countryside tour, a railway adventure along the country’s S-shaped coast, a private dinner amid the paddy fields or Vietnamese cooking classes.

Immerse yourself in local Vietnamese culture at the Hoi An Beach Resort, a tropical hideaway where the boundaries between design and the nature blur effortlessly – the best example is the infinity pool, which faces onto the East Vietnam Sea and seems to back straight into the De Vong River. Start your day with a Tai Chi lesson on the private beach or learn the basics of Vietnamese at the language classes. In the evening, book a riverboat cruise to see some of the lesser-known areas of Hoi An.
