Between central Vietnam’s Marble Mountains and the beach resort of Non Nuoc, Hyatt Regency Danang is a sprawling seafront retreat on a secluded private beach. Despite its size (the 409 guestrooms are split across four towering condominium blocks) and its minimalist look, the property offers a warm welcome and plenty of family-friendly amenities including five pools and a watersports center, plus a daily roster of activities from kite flying to pony rides on the beach. Local touches include daybeds crafted from Vietnamese basket boats.
Bed & Bath
All of the bright and contemporary rooms feature white walls, light wood furniture, huge wooden walk-in closets and balconies. The pale marble bathrooms come with deep bathtubs, powerful rain showers and floor-to-ceiling windows that make the most of the coastal views. The Two Bedroom Residences are luxe home-from-homes with fully-equipped kitchens and lounge and dining areas. Club rooms offer access to the private lounge for all-day drinks and snacks and sundowners by the pool.
The Green House is an all-day dining spot that serves Vietnamese dishes from a huge open kitchen. Head to the Pool House for laid-back lunches and sea views from the terrace (it serves local cuisine until sunset and then morphs into a cocktail bar and seafood grill). The Beach House is an upscale option for spectacular seafood. There’s also a handy grocery store for freshly-baked goods and take-out coffee. After checking out the daily activity options (from rock climbing to surf lessons) indulge in a treatment at the VIE spa.
In the Area
The antiquated old town of Hoi An with its lantern-strewn river and decadent dining options is a 20-minute free shuttle ride away. Try the delicious Pho Hai San at Green Mango, an opulent wooden traders house on ritzy Nguyen Thai Hoc, or for street food head to The Market where you can take your pick from designer food carts overlooking the busy night market. For nightlife, head to Hoi An’s younger, glitzier sister, Da Nang city and try a rooftop cocktail at the Al La Carte Skybar followed by dinner and DJs at the uber cool Luna Pub.
How to Get There
Arriving for a sporting event in Danang, where the host hotel is Hyatt Regency Danang Resort & Spa. And with all major events held in hotels or resorts, I was expecting much hiccups within the resort operation. But lo and behold, everything was working like a fine tune clock, well, almost!
Our hotel transfer was arranged by the organiser of the event. All good and quick. Just a few minutes of waiting time at the airport for all the participants to gather and name list checked. Plus bike boxes and personal luggage all taken care.
Oh, sunglasses and dressing light upon arrival to Danang is a must. Think beach wear! The sun was glaring and the heat was hot and humid.
The transfer from airport to hotel took us approx 30 mins. Upon arrival, our bike boxes and luggage have arrived. Wow! Efficient!
Expected a Q at check-in but it was short and fast. I love the way the check-ins are handled. While Q-ing, a staff host would take our passport and documents to the counter for process. Waiting time for us was less than 10 mins. Though I arrive early, my room was given straightaway! Thank you Anh Lu, the lady that check me in.
The bell men was super attentive and super efficient! Just stepping out to collect my luggage, Sumo, the bell men was observant and had my luggage all in a buggy. All I need to do was hop onto the buggy. Bear in mind there were like 20 plus bike boxes and luggage to be deliver to rooms. There was plenty of bell men for everyone. If one needs to wait, I guess it would be less than 5 mins.
Weather was extremely hot in May. So again, an advise - sunglasses, sun block and dress airily light! The Vietnamese pointed straw/cane hat came in handy throughout my stay!
My room was awesome. Whoever is the interior designer, kudos to him. It is super well designed and user friendly!! I had the view of the ocean and the main pool plus another pool just on the other side of my block (hotel wing).
Love the balcony with a circular sofa bed and an outdoor table to dine and yes, great way to have room services. The bed and pillows was amazingly comfortable. What I need for preping a race. The L-shaped sofa is a delight to chill and watch TV. Plus a valuable round table to do your work stuff and have room service too!
The bathroom! OMG! Huge! Love the two basin sink concept with loads of good amenities from shower gel to towels. The shower and bath tub area is amazing. It dares you to shower with the world outside watching you if you want. There is always the screen if you want privacy.
And there is a walk-in wardrobe! What else can I ask for and this was just a standard room I have paid for. Once again kudos to the interior designer and architect.
WIFI is complimentary and great signal strength throughout the resort. However, can't seem to be able to power the WIFI for my Google Home device.
I love the small touch of the towel to clean my bike post race. Maybe next time they should include an isotonic drink as a welcome drink for those participating in the race(?) or provide extra 2 bottles of water(?). It's in the touch!
I had my meals at the Green House (part of it under renovations) and thus breakfast Q waiting time for a table is long. However, while waiting, one can have fresh juices self service style. Lunches was at the Pool House and I love sitting Al Fresco cos of the shades provided. However, I noticed that the air-con sitting areas at the Pool House and Green House is not functioning well and as the crowd gets bigger, it gets warmer. Services was great at both outlets. Waiting time for the food with a crowd is less than 10 mins. Food was delicious but the portion was way too small for the ala carte menus. That was a disappointment for the price one pays.
The Lounge Bar (just behind the Reception) is a tad too slow. Drinks took a while to be served. 15-20 mins for 2 beers??? And honestly, the sofa and chairs are the most uncomfortable I have sat on! There seem to be a shortage of staff here in the evening for drinks.
I love room services and usually it takes 45 mins to an hour for your food to arrive. But viola! though the staff over the phone says 40 mins to an hour, it came within 15 mins on two occasions that I ordered dinner. And if you must have room services, go choose the set menu! Love it!
The main pool gets crowded with family and kids. So best if you want peace and serenity, opt for the smaller pools hidden away from the main pool. One thing I noticed the pool water seems to be cloudy. Hmnnnnnn....
The resort fronts a beautiful stretch of fine powdery sand beach. Waves are pretty scary so check before you venture into the ocean. Oh, a must to wear your sandals or flip flop as the sand gets so hot that one is unable to walk barefoot on the sand! Maybe a sign in the room to inform guests, so that we don't have to walk back to our room to get our sandals.
There is nothing much just outside the resort. No shops, no convenience stores. However, just grab a taxi via the hotel concerige and it's a mere 10 to 15 mins to the nearest row of shops. You pay via the meter.
Best of all, from the hotel, it takes 20-25 mins by car to be in Hoi An. So go spend the day and a dinner evening in Hoi An. You won't regret it.
My check-out was yet smooth and efficient. I want to take this opportunity to thank these extremely awesome satff that made my stay and unforgetable experience - Anh Lu (reception), Anna (RDM), Sumo (Bellman), All the F&B team at Pool House, the BEST Housekeeping Team ever and the know-all Concerige Team. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Hyatt is upgrading its premise at the moment. A la Carte breakfast waffles, beef noodles and salmon sandwich are great. Do note the pot of tea is huge and two pax can share. Cost about SDG$50 for 3pax.
We came over to check out the food.
In Da Nang hotel dinning hopping is good for Singaporean. Avoid seafood restaurant, it’s overpriced.
I choose Hyatt Regency Danang again and again because I am very sure to get what a guest wish to get.the staff is extremely friendly and well educated.i do recommend to all travelers to da nang.except if think about budget travel. The rooms are really very comfortable.the service is really 5 star. Only 50 meters from the beach. Have even a private swimming pool for special guests,but even if not special guests can enjoy maximum best service. All what a resort hotel needs you will find here. Especially inside the regency club. If you need to relax you come tot he right place.
Very nice hotel in turn of services , room, location & not to mention the sea view from our room. But we did not expect so many family-oriented customers with small children, so it became noisy & over crowded at times. Good place to stay at if you have under 12 year old children, because you’ll fit right in.
A great location with absolutely amazing view of sea. It has some great food at its restaurants but they close down early on in the night so not a place for someone who wants to party late into night at the resort itself. For that you have to go to the downtown which is what everyone is expected to do.
Great massage location. Definitely worth a try!
Access to the sea beach with full service though there was no action happening On the beach during the days of my stay there - it was pretty much a deserted beach and certainly no water activities.
One can easily UBER to downtown or any other locations in the city.
Very close to one of the mountain attractions that is accessible on foot.
