The Nam Hai Resort – Hoi An
Location: Hoi An, Vietnam
Address: Hamlet 1, Dien Duong Village ,Dien Ban District, Quang Nam Province Central Vietnam, Vietnam
Along a seemingly infinite stretch of sand, amidst Vietnam’s richest cultural heritage, a strand of sophisticated, visually striking villas lines the dramatic beachfront. Inspired by 2,500 years of history, The Nam Hai’s architecture and interior design presents a dramatic play on wind and water inspired by ancient feng shui philosophy and the grandeur of the Tu Doc royal tombs of Hue.
Explore the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Hoi An, My Son and Hue with its Buddhist pagodas, royal tombs and historic citadels. Return to our calm, tropical shore on Ha My Beach to relax around three expansive swimming pools, in the spa on a lotus pond, over gourmet Eastern and Western cuisine or in the privacy of one of our 100 private retreats, elegantly finished with Vietnamese lacquer and diaphanous silk, some of which are served by a most attentive butle.
60 one-bedroom villas and 40 pool villas spread over 35 hectares of tropical gardens and along the pristine shoreline of Ha My Beach. Top-notch butlers assigned to each pool villa ensure all guests receive unsurpassed hospitality with expectations exceeded.
Sought after contemporary Vietnamese artwork hangs in high ceilinged living spaces among delicate, hand spun silks and polished local woods. In all our villas, whether one, two or five bedrooms in total, each bedroom pavilion centres around an elevated platform inspired by traditional Vietnamese garden houses encompasses the king-sized bed, a sunken writing desk, padded divan and our unique lacquered eggshell bath. In each, the lavish bathroom opens out onto a private tropical garden with an outdoor rain shower. Pool villas add a private courtyard entrance leading to the temperature controlled swimming pool that makes plunging possible anytime of year, and beyond that a separate fully equipped kitchen and your butler’s quarters.
The Nam Hai looks after our guests beginning well in advance of your arrival, by facilitating all aspects of the visa process then welcomes you to treat our seaside retreat as your own home. Some memorable differences would include resort’s talented Concierge Team, on call around the clock to arrange private tours and excursions around our charm filled neighbouring World Heritage Site of Hoi An, off shore island jaunts and historic tours to My Son, Hue and the mysterious Marble Mountains.
Our younger guests receive the same personalised attention seven days a week at the Kids Activity Villa, so you can unwind while they play safely in our experienced care.
