The Nam Hai, Hoi An
Weaving along an infinitely glorious stretch of beach sprawl a strand of visually striking villas, which sit amongst some of the richest cultural heritage in Vietnam. With an architectural design inspired by over 2,500 years of history, the Nam Hai is perfectly placed to devour the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Hoi An, My Son and Hue.
The 60 One Bedroom Villas and 40 Pool Villas are super-stylish and exude an aura of contemporary Vietnamese spirit meets Zen-inspired chic. Open-plan rooms reveal high ceilings, beds swathed in romantic mosquito nets are raised on platforms and an eggshell lacquered bathtub entices you to indulge in a relaxing soak. All villas have the ultimate in state of the art technology and boast breath-taking views of the ocean.
When the cool morning air weaves its magic the outdoor deck of The Restaurant is the place for breakfast with a whole host of eastern and western favourites to tempt the taste buds into wakefulness. By night the whole space is transformed into a sleek, romantically lit fusion fare restaurant. Taking up the slack during the day is The Beach Restaurant, perfect for relaxed leisurely lunches. This is the place to find delectable Vietnamese treats as night falls.
A Little Pampering
Eight stunning treatment pavilions make up the outstanding spa; all are totally private with open-air relaxation decks replete with comfy day beds and deep soaking bathtubs. There are also three superb palm-fringed swimming pools. The upper level is for all to enjoy, the middle level offers a fabulous lap pool for the fitness conscious and the lower level is an adults-only, ocean-side, infinity-edge sanctuary.
Nam Hai is just down the road from the charms of Hoi An with her colourful street traders and multicultural influences and most definitely worth a slice of your time. My Son is one of the best preserved Cham sites in the area.
