Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai, Hoi An, Vietnam
What We Love
- Buffet breakfast is included in the Jetsetter rate

- The spa’s treatment pavilions and four-handed massages
What To Know
- A 5 percent service charge and 10 percent tax per night will be collected at the Jetsetter checkout

- Parking On Site
- Room Service
The Nam Hai’s award-winning architecture is based partly on an emperor’s tomb and partly on a traditional Vietnamese garden house — an extremely opulent garden house. The serene all-villa retreat is pure Zen. Villas are surrounded by lush gardens studded with towering palm trees, and each is equipped with a private patio and outdoor shower overlooking the South China Sea. Just as blissful is the spa, a sanctuary set on a lagoon that’s filled with lotus flowers and light pouring in through the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Bed and Bath
All 100 villas have floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, four-poster canopy beds, writing desks and sunken bathtubs. The split-level setup raises the bed and other lounging areas for even better views of the South China Sea, and there are alfresco bathrooms and large patios to soak up views of the surrounding gardens. Turn-down here is taken to another level: The staff lights oversize candles in the bedroom and delivers homemade almond cookies.
Three terraced infinity pools lead down to the ocean and are lit by hundreds of twinkling lanterns at night. Golf carts are on hand to navigate the sizable resort; staff whisks guests between the lobby, restaurant, gym and spa. The sublime spa is set on its own lagoon, and treatments start with a serving of ginger lemongrass tea followed by a footbath. Don’t miss the signature treatment: the Nam Hai Jade Massage, a four-hand affair in which two smiling therapists work in a synchronized fashion. On the food front, the Dining Room restaurant serves innovative Vietnamese fare alongside an impressive wine list of 6,000 bottles, and the beach restaurant is a laid-back eatery with a seafood-heavy menu served from an open kitchen.
How to Get There
Just returned from an amazing trip to Hoi An. If you want a mixture of relaxation and adventure- this is the place for you. Service, food, transportation all on point. The rooms were amazing...we had a one bedroom beach front villa. The hotel even surprised us with roses, champagne and dessert to help us celebrate a big occasion. Hands down one of the best resorts we have ever visited. Highly recommend.
Loved the location of this hotel, but my expectations may have been too much. The service was good and the spa design was unique and nice, but other little nuances troubled me during my stay for a 5* resort. the paths were too narrow to walk with the motorized carts and the room design was somewhat dangerous is you had to wake up at night to use the restroom with the sunken bedroom. The food was good, not great which was surprising since the hoi an market was very close with every kind of fresh ingredient under the sun... all and all for a 4Seasons my expectations were higher. It was the second stay at a 4Seasons in a row where my expectations weren't met (for the price they charge)
Great location, very well-meaning and generally good staff. However rooms and overall service standards not quite at level you would expect for hotel of this standing or price. This is partly due to age of the premises, and [presumably] to hotel that is a relative newcomer to the Four Seasons stable. Any negatives were small rather than major or recurrent. However, under this brand, and at this price point, expectation is for near-perfection. Re the food, the Indian menu is the highlight. The Vietnamese menu on the night we went lacked several items from the menu, was relatively bland, and you can get better food for one tenth of the price in Hoi An.
We have visited Da Nang/Hoi An 5 times to date. We have stayed at the Anantara twice, The Grand Hyatt, The Intercontinental and, most recently, The Four Seasons Nam Hai...
Whilst every stay in Da Nang has been superb (you can't really fault the place!), this particular trip was exceptional.
The Four Seasons resort is heavenly. We stayed in a 3 bed pool villa - THAT POOL!! - which was just awesome. Super spacious, clean, well designed etc. Despite it being slightly un-child friendly with all the steps inside and outside the room, we had a very relaxing stay and our toddler loved it.
We were very close to the kids club.which was ideal. Lots of activities that our little one could get involved in with the other kids.
There are only 2 restaurants, which did surprise me, but we ate very well on both occasions that we ate at the hotel.
Great service from the staff, in particular our butler, Ngoc, who went above and beyond to ensure we were looked after.
Our spa experience was excellent too.
We will most certainly be returning to this hotel.
I promise you what ever worries you have they will be washed away once you step foot on the property. I can’t speak highly enough of the entire staff and resort. This is perfection at its best. It was truly an experience that I would not miss if I was visiting Vietnam. Whatever I say won’t do justice. Thank you all for a unforgettable experience.
