Historic Hoi An, a Unesco World Heritage Site, is one of the most charming cities in Vietnam, and Southeast Asia. It’s also a prime spot for unique, boutique hotels. Options range from homestay-style private rooms on the beach to newer retreats offering sigh-worthy views over the Thu Bon River – and many come with in-house spas and restaurants. Here’s our pick of the best hotels in Hoi An, now bookable with Culture Trip.

Little Beach Boutique Hotel and Spa sits on Cua Dai beach – you’ll wake up to the enticing smell of the salty sea air.
