Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai, Hoi An, Vietnam
What We Love
- Buffet breakfast is included in the Jetsetter rate
- Unbeatable access to Hoi An, the old city of Hue and My Son, an ancient Cham Empire monument

- 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
We stayed at the four seasons last month , for just a week in a beach front villa with private pool ( it ws in fact two villas one villa had your lounge and dinning room and another the bedroom , ensuite and change room and sitting area ).
I loved every minute of being there it had every thing you could ever want and more .
The staff were all wonderful , but I feel I must mention certain members of staff you really looked after us at Breakfast Huong , lunch Nroc, and dinner Thu , in the reservations dept Dang and last but not least our butler Quynh Katherine who went above and beyond the call of duty .
THank you all very much
Positives - lovely location, great beach, nice villas, good service, friendly staff. Butler Vu very good.
Negatives - not close to value for money. I get its the Four Season and there is value in the brand. BUT for rooms costing $1,500 per night plus taxes I expect an executive lounge, mini bar perks. Mark up on mediocre wins ludicrous: $130 for a distinctly average sauvignon blanc. Really?
Having just spent $9K + on a 5 night stay did I really need to be charged for a bottle of coke on check out?
" Benefit " of free wifi is frankly insulting and comes as standard in much less expensive chains.
Having just stayed in the following in region: Shangri-la, Bangkok, Banyan Tree , Bangkok, Jaya Park , Siem Reap there are better experiences at a fraction of the price. There are other players in town.
I was there with my family, 2 children 10 and 3. We stayed at Four Seasons Villa for about a week. Although the weather at this time of the year is mostly wet, but we still had great time staying at the resort, with different activities FS had setup throughout the day. FS experience is just 2nd to none, from their breakfast, to amenities in the resort, kids activities, and dedicated butler to help us. it was quite relaxing vacation for all of us. Staff at FS were really friendly and make sure we were well taken care. Definitely would stay there again if I go back to Hoi An.
