One of Southeast Asia’s most underrated destinations, Vietnam is a treasure trove of charming cities and outstanding street food. There’s also a plethora of luxury hotels for high-end travelers looking for a peaceful reprieve. Here are three of Vietnam’s most standout upscale retreats 🇻🇳👇
1️⃣ Amanoi (@amanoi): Tucked inside the secluded Núi Chúa National Park, Amanoi offers unparalleled privacy against a breathtakingly rugged natural landscape. A combination of pavilions, villas and residences make up this grand and elegant property on the private Vĩnh Hy Bay. Japanese and ancient Vietnamese architecture, including exposed timber, low, plush beds and brushed black cement flooring add to its peaceful vibe. Its focus on wellness means their spa is a must-visit, including its hammam and yoga pavilion.
2️⃣ Anantara Quy Nhơn Villas (@anantaraquynhon): Vietnam’s only first-class train ride aboard Anantara’s new Vietage takes you from Đà Nẵng to their glamorous seaside resort in Quy Nhơn. The hotel’s 26 villas have floor to ceiling views of the ocean, ideal for sunrise. The super spacious bathroom has both an indoor and outdoor shower as well as a plunge tub with dreamy views. The majority of the villas come with their own private infinity pool and creatively stocked mini-bar and pantry.
3️⃣ JW Marriott Phú Quốc Emerald Bay Resort & Spa (@jwmarriottphuquoc): This colorful resort on Phú Quốc’s pristine Emerald Bay is an uber-creative Bill Bensley creation designed to look like a 19th-century university campus. Each of the 17 buildings are named after a department of study, complete with a matching theme and artwork. The rooms are stylish and comfortable with bright pops of color like lime green and turquoise. The bathrooms have major wow-factor with limestone and marble flooring, a rain shower and a unique soaking tub. The level of detail around the resort is mind-boggling, from its Alice in Wonderland-themed spa to the Department of Chemistry bar to its all pink fine-dining restaurant.
