Charming Hoi An lies on the coast of central Vietnam and is home to colonial architecture, rich culture, and breathtaking beaches. Visitors are enchanted by the relaxed pace of life and stunning local attractions. Here are the best hotels in Hoi An to call home during your Vietnam stay, bookable with Culture Trip.
This peaceful hotel is comprised of four traditionally built bungalows that have sleek modern amenities for guests’ total comfort. The refreshing outdoor pool is framed by lush tropical gardens complete with trees and, naturally, fragrant orchids. The Orchid Villas’ on-site restaurant serves up delicious Italian and Vietnamese dishes, and the incredible staff and luxurious feel will make you feel like you’re at a five-star resort for a fraction of the cost.
East West Villas used to be the owners’ grandparents home. More recently, the family rebuilt the property into 16 luxurious, modern villas reminiscent of traditional Vietnamese culture. The villas are built among lush gardens and fruit-bearing trees, as well as a gorgeous swimming pool with plenty of shade. The rooms are all spacious and comfortable, but the stars of the show are the deep-soak bathtubs situated on a bed of stones. It looks and feels like a serene spa.
An Villa is a true oasis situated in a remote area of Hoi An. This stunning hotel is recommended for travellers who want to be in nature while enjoying chic accommodation with modern amenities. The villas are designed without televisions so families and friends can enjoy each other’s company by borrowing a board game or simply getting lost in one of the many books dotting the shelves. This eloquent space features a delicious on-site restaurant as well as a refreshing swimming pool surrounded by palm trees.
The Beach Little Boutique Hotel & Spa is the perfect spot for travellers looking for some true rest and relaxation. This beautiful hotel is situated steps from Cửa Đại beach – however, a tragic mix of erosion and severe storms have radically altered the look of Cửa Đại. For beach lovers, the hotel offers shuttles to nearby An Bang beach so guests can easily enjoy the famous Hoi An coastline. The hotel’s lavish breakfast buffet features Vietnamese and Western delicacies, and guests will love the combination of antique elegance and modern style in each spacious room.
Hoi An Eco Lodge & Spa is a gorgeous new hotel that features rustic, charming decor and all-natural materials. Each stylish room is decorated in earthy tones, perfectly complimenting the lush greenery surrounding the property. A spacious pool area is surrounded by a wooden boardwalk and has a pool bar serving up refreshing drinks and cocktails. The rooms overlook either the pool or tranquil coconut forest, making this spot an idyllic setting for some true rejuvenation.
This boutique hotel is located close to Hoi An’s Ancient Town and looks out over stretches of green rice paddies. Each room features a modern style with old-town characteristics and boasts a private balcony that looks out onto the pool area. La Siesta Resort & Spa has two delicious restaurants on site to satisfy every guest; the Red Bean serves delicious Vietnamese cuisine while The Temple presents fine European fusion dishes. The friendly staff are knowledgeable and attentive, making sure your stay will be as peaceful and relaxing as possible.
This contemporary, stylish hotel is perfect for travellers who appreciate a mix of modern and classic design. Located in the heart of Hoi An, local attractions are just steps from the hotel and a short drive (or bike) to the beach. This hotel has a tranquil atmosphere but it’s especially serene at night, when the warm glow of hanging lanterns cast a romantic light over the grounds.
Hoi An River Town Hotel is nestled on the Thu Bon River and just a five-minute walk from the many pagodas, temples, and shops that Hoi An is known for. Each of their 76 ornate rooms feature elegant, colourful decor and many sport a spacious balcony overlooking the peaceful river. The property is adorned with tropical gardens and a large swimming pool. Although it’s located close to local attractions, this hotel is a calm oasis in the city. Don’t miss the awesome happy hour deals at the pool.
Almanity Hoi An Wellness Resort is, as its name suggests, a luxurious hotel dedicated to improving guests’ wellbeing. Inclusive retreats include a daily 50-minute massage to rejuvenate the body, while free yoga classes are offered to relax the mind. The property is within walking distance of the Old Town and guests can take a refreshing dip in the gorgeous swimming pool after a day of exploring. Almanity Hoi An features an organic garden, making it the first farm-to-table hotel in the city, and the resulting menu is sensational.
Nowhere in Hoi An can you find such unbridled luxury than at the Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai. Located in a secluded part of the city with a private, white-sand beach, this exclusive resort is the best of the best. Guests are treated to stunning views, lush tropical gardens, and outstanding service. The beachfront villas boast their own private swimming pool, and there is an adults-only infinity pool flanked with sun loungers that overlook the ocean. It’ll cost a pretty penny, but it’s an experience you won’t forget in a hurry.
