Zannier Hotels Bãi San Hô
As tourism in the well-trodden hot spots of Vietnam is developing at a rapid rate, Zannier have found a very special remote location on Vietnam’s central coast, where you’ll discover the beautiful Zannier Bai San Ho. Its name in Vietnamese translates into “bay of corals”, in reference to its untouched coastline and beautiful coral reefs. Surrounded by spectacular hills, lush vegetation and authentic paddy fields, this is a true hidden gem. Immersion in the culture of the region is at the top of the agenda here and no-where else in Asia blends luxury of a resort with the charm of the surrounding landscape and local life as well as here.
Zannier Bai San Ho is located in the Phu Yen Province, close to Quy Nhon, between Hoi An and Nha Trang, making it an ideal stop after a stay in charming Hoi An. Access is via a short flight to Phu Cat (close to Quy Nhon), Phu Yen or Nha Trang, followed by a road transfer to the resort which varies from one to three hours’ drive. Or consider a rail journey from Hoi An in the comfort of a private carriage - The Vietage, with just 12 seats and a choice of delicious food and drinks to enjoy as the train winds its way through the local countryside to Quy Nhon.

The resort itself is a collection of 73 villas, resembling the style of Vietnamese homes, adorned with hand-picked antiques, some with pools overlooking verdant hilltops, and fronting the mile-long powder white beach. Built on stilts overlooking the rice fields are the Paddy Field Villas with walk-in dressing rooms and private terraces. Perched on top of green hills, overlooking the resort and out to the ocean are the One and Two Bedroom Hill Pool Villas and the One and Two Bedroom Beach Pool Villas have direct access to the beach.
The two-storey Three and Four Bedroom Grand Bay Pool Villas offer the ultimate in spacious living with breath-taking views over the bay, with open kitchens, living space, huge terraces and infinity pools.
Three restaurants range from Bà Hai, which serves authentic regional cooking overlooking the rice fields for dinner only; fresh seafood at Làng Chài, open air and on the beach for lunch and dinner; to all-day Southeast Asian casual dining at Nhà Ô, the main restaurant, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guests can enjoy drinks on the beach at the secluded and intimate Ham cocktail bar.
The bay, with its coral reef, is the perfect place for paddle boarding, kayaking or snorkelling. Water-skiing, surfing and fishing are also on offer and bicycles are available to explore the local neighbourhood. The Hoa Sen spa, yoga studio and reflection pool provide a serene setting for mind-body wellness.
Couples and families will love Zannier Bai San Ho, not only for the large pool and beach but for the incredible welcome they’ll get from the dedicated team who organise numerous fun experiences from 7am to 9pm. For children, an indoor and outdoor playground area offers activities from papercrafts, conical hat painting to ping pong and table football. There are plenty of games for all including tennis, beach volleyball, beach football and petanque.
Beyond the resort guests are encouraged to get out and explore and offer plenty of local excursions. A quick bicycle ride out of the resort will bring you to a shellfish and shrimp farm, where you’ll learn about the fishermen’s lifestyle. A local lifestyle tour brings you to the centre of local life, starting in a bustling market, visiting a local heeler, a traditional salt farm and rice paper making family. You can explore the coastline by typical Vietnamese basket boat or travel further afield by speedboat, where you can explore small islands and snorkel around reefs. We recommend stopping off at a secluded bay for a private picnic or afternoon tea.
