Why decide between town, beach and countryside when you can have all three? Staying at this peaceful green oasis in Hoi An, you’ll be right on the edge of the historic district and close to Cua Dai beach, a section of which is reserved for Hoi An Trails Resort & Spa guests.
Set around a large freeform pool and overlooking rice fields, the resort is a picturesque sanctuary styled with traditional and modern Vietnamese design details. Darkwood furnishings, patterned tiles and unique birdcage lanterns are decor highlights, while the impressive galleried interior of the main building exudes timeless charm.
Relax among the 100-year-old frangipani trees and enjoy classic spa treatments, or a cocktail at the thatched-roof poolside bar. Explore Vietnamese cuisine at Moc and in the cushioned Rice Lounge, with a great view – or better still, delve deeper into the culinary world with a cookery class or guided food tasting.
How to Get There
A lovely family friendly resort 3 kms out of town. Comfortable rooms some with a deck overlooking the garden and some with a balcony. Gardens are attractive, verdant and well maintained. Breakfast was expansive with an enormous range of different types of international cuisine.
Take bikes ( although check them first as some are a bit dodgy) or a scooter to get into town and explore the countryside and the local beaches. Especially recommend An Bang beach: par-ascending, jet skis and lovely warm water plus inexpensive restaurants serving delicious fish.
Nice clean room.
Very good breakfast.
the swimming pool was to small and not enough sunbeds
good service and friendly staff, very helpful if you did ask for something
Expensive drinks in the bar
i do not recommend the food at the hotell
but a great place to stay, free shuttle bus in to old town
We stayed for 6 nights. The management facilitated a change of rooms (an upgrade for which we were thankful) after night one - because the family suite we were in stank of sweet sewage whenever water was run in the bathroom.
The gardens are lush & lovely. The pool area, however, needs investment. The pool beds were old, and the swim-up bar no longer is one! Instead it is a rather ugly hole filled with pot plants. The Banana bar is nice enough though.
The restaurant food is good, but not as good as most of the cheaper local restaurants. At breakfast, however, all week the unfriendly staff consistently failed to resupply the food, tea, coffee stations until prompted to do so by a guest. And be prepared for the omelette station to give you whatever they want; not even close to what you ordered. The issue with staff extended to virtually all requests (such as a request for some tea cups in our room - the room had a kettle but no cups) not being met.
Trails has great potential. But for an expensive, luxury option, ‘potential’ isn’t good enough.
