A leading five-star resort on the edge of Hoi An’s ancient old town, including a suite and breakfast
Often considered Vietnam's most charming ancient town, Hoi An is full of beautifully preserved houses that reflect a myriad of cultural influences, from China and Japan to France. The whole place is UNESCO World Heritage protected and has a mellow, artistic flavor, many of its historic buildings having been converted into galleries and cafés. Such a romantic and intriguing destination warrants a suitably elegant base, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a better one than La Siesta Resort & Spa.
Set just outside the old town, overlooking green rice fields, the property is a peaceful sanctuary, with exceptional five-star facilities. Among the highlights are a freshwater pool, lined by cabanas and loungers, plus a soothing saltwater alternative, a must-visit spa and two relaxed restaurants. You can borrow a red Japanese postman-style bicycle to ride about in the local village lanes and in Hoi An – though your outings won't just be of the cultural variety. The resort also runs a scheduled shuttle service to golden An Bang beach and reserves an exclusive section of the sands.
Veranda suites are located in the east wing, a terrace of eight traditional-style townhouse villas. Decked out with period furnishings, traditional floor tiles and four-poster beds with a hoop canopies, they’re among the most romantic rooms in the resort. Expect about 592 square feet, equivalent to a junior suite, that includes a large bathroom with a private sauna, an herbal bathtub and separate rainforest shower. There’s also a furnished pool-view porch to the front and a shared garden area at the back.
There are two restaurants at La Siesta Resort & Spa. Fine-dining option The Temple proffers a modern-fusion menu, bringing together European and Asian flavors. Alternatively, Red Bean walks you through Vietnam’s most iconic dishes, as well as local specialties from the Quang Nam province. For drinks, there’s the poolside Feliz Bar, open till late.
La Siesta Spa is situated in dedicated villas within the east wing. Home to four treatment rooms, linked by wooden walkways in tropical gardens, it features saunas, barrel-essence bathtubs and a Jacuzzi.
A scheduled shuttle service runs to the old town and to An Bang beach, where an area with loungers and towels is set aside for you and other guests. You might also consider riding a postman-style bike along rice fields, and visiting the UNESCO World Heritage-protected old town is a must. The staff can set up such excursions as cocktail demonstrations and cooking classes.
