Midway along Vietnam’s S-shaped coast, Da Nang is a prime pitstop for travellers snaking their way between the capital Hanoi in the north and the southern hub of Ho Chi Minh City. Its shores are sandy, its streetfood superlative and its natural scenery, nudged by the Marble Mountains, worth stopping for. Here are the best resorts in Da Nang.

1. Risemount Premier Resort Da Nang

The Risemount takes its inspiration from the Aegean blues of Greece – though, really it’s just an ode to the ocean, with My Khe Beach being a few flip-flop strolls away. With its whitewashed walls, cobalt-blue windows and doors, patterned tiles, pastel accents and balconies in full bloom, it’s easy to slip into vacation mode here. The resort has two swimming pools – a huge one in the courtyard and another up top on the roof with an adjoining wine bar and views that could rival any Greek sunset.

2. Vinpearl Resort and Spa Da Nang

Ideal for families and groups, Vinpearl has 122 grand villas surrounded by a moat-like lagoon, running alongside Non Nuoc Beach. The neoclassical-style villas include either two or three bedrooms, a balcony with garden or ocean views, and a private sundeck, plunge pool and layers of greenery to ensure privacy. Some come with a kitchenette, though a breakfast buffet of Vietnamese dishes such as pho, as well as Western staples, is served every morning in the Triton Restaurant overlooking the lagoon.

3. Naman Retreat

Start your Da Nang day with a Naman signature massage. It’s just one of the many wellness treatments offered at Naman Retreat’s standout spa. With futuristic Balinese bamboo structures and foliage-draped concrete buildings created in hanging garden-style, balance and harmony are key at this elegant beachfront property. The floor-to-ceiling glass windows blur the lines between indoor and outdoor. Beach villas come with a private luxury-car transfer from the airport, a free bottle of wine and a well-stocked mini-bar.

4. Furama Resort DaNang

This culinary resort is a food-lover’s dream with restaurants covering French cuisine, central Vietnamese fare and fresh Italian dining, plus cooking classes that teach you how to master Da Nang beef salad and Hue-style pork. Lining the beach, suites and villas have balconies with sea views – great for watching the local fishermen gather the catch of the day from round basket boats. Besides its emphasis on food, the resort also offers unique experiences: between February to October, it’s diving season, with scuba or snorkelling tours to Son Tra Peninsula and Cham Island; and watersports or aerial adventures via helicopter available year round.

5. Premier Village Da Nang Resort

This family-friendly beachfront resort is set in manicured grounds and modelled on a village with 100-plus villas of between one and four bedrooms, kitted out with kitchens and private pools. If you’re taking a holiday from cooking, take advantage of the fresh seafood served at Ca Chuon Co and Vietnamese fare on offer at Lemongrass. Once you get settled, explore the beach or central Vietnam’s three Unesco World Heritage sites: the ancient port city of Hoi An, with its lantern-strung old town; the Hindu temple site of My Son; and the monument-rich city of Hue, erstwhile capital of the Nguyen Dynasty. Afterwards, return to chill out at the hotel’s two pools and spa.

6. Sheraton Grand Da Nang Resort

This stately Sheraton resort flirts with the sands of Non Nuoc Beach and flutters its eyelids at the Marble Mountains and Son Tra Peninsula in the near vicinity. The name of the game here is all-out opulence: there are alfresco spaces galore, six distinct restaurants and bars, and sophisticated rooms and suites. Even the pools are over the top, with a 250m infinity pool – the longest in Da Nang, no less – and a mini water park for kids with slides and flumes.

7. Fusion Maia Da Nang

This beachfront wellness resort has an all-inclusive spa concept, where you get two treatments a day, at no extra cost. Massages, reiki, manicures, pedicures, peels, scrubs and wraps – you name it, and it’s likely included in your room rate. They also offer ‘breakfast anytime, anywhere,’ so late sleepers can rejoice. Glass-enclosed villas have a contemporary feel with elegant canopy beds, modern deep soaking tubs and rainfall showers. Spend the day at the resort’s cinema, lazing about on beachside daybeds, or relaxing around the infinity pool and its very-Vietnam waterfall.

8. Sandy Beach Resort

There are two pools, a state-of-the-art fitness centre and a games room, all with direct access to Non Nuoc Beach, where you can also take part in early morning Tai Chi or yoga sessions. Babysitting services and a kids club are available for parents who want a date night or time at the spa to try out signature Vietnamese massages.

Small in stature, but with a great emphasis on customer service, The Blossom Resort has only 30 rooms so you get the personalised attention you deserve. It’s one of just a few resorts located on the exclusive Green Island zone in downtown Da Nang, with peaceful views of the surrounding river and garden. Its focus is on wellness with the chance to zen out during a visit to the spa’s onsen or in the Japanese-inspired interiors of your suite.
