A true oasis: The splendid Anantara Hoi An Resort, with a strong twist of French colonial style, brings calm of the aqua variety.
From your intriguing, split-level suite, allow your eyes to soak up the picturesque Thu Bon River. Unwind on your comfortable L-shaped sofa or perhaps cosy up a little closer to the water, in the comfort of your private porch. Your daybed will prove an irresistible place for an afternoon nap in the shade.
If and when you tire of water-gazing, hop off the resort’s private jetty and onto the Anantara River Boat. Allow your guide to take you on a gentle cruise downstream and enjoy either breakfast, a gourmet lunch or a charming, romantic sunset.
Alternatively, sink further into tranquillity at the Anantara Spa. Here you will experience ancient massage techniques guaranteed to ease your mind, body and soul before you slip into the sunken bath tub beside. You’ll find more room to splash in the sizeable square pool and you can expect some delighted smiles from the kids too, as they’ll have their very own pool to play in.
When it’s time for dinner, head up to the popular Lanterns restaurant for some top-notch Vietnamese cuisine. Or, if you'd prefer to dine under a giant tree, take a table at the tasteful Heritage Bar and choose from a wide selection of fine wines, baguettes and tapas. Breakfast will be served on the terrace at the Riverside Café.
