Canopy beds, bold red tapestries and patterned sofas lend a sense of playfulness to this sleek Hoi An newcomer on the banks of the Thu Bon River. Bed down in one of the spacious guestrooms (all 119 rooms are at least 431 square feet), which feature seating areas, rainfall showers and L’Occitane bath amenities. Or upgrade to a deluxe room for your own private balcony overlooking the river or the pool. The on-site restaurant, Wa Ku Ku (the name was inspired by the Japanese name of a Vietnamese princess), serves sushi and yakitori for dinner, while the Faifo café offers a morning breakfast buffet and à la carte European, Vietnamese and Hoi An specialties throughout the day. Sip colonial-style cocktails paired with Vietnamese appetizers at the River Bar, which overlooks the Art Nouveau–style pool.
In the Area
Borrow a bicycle from the hotel and ride around Hoi An, arguably Vietnam’s most charming city. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is known as much for its mazelike alleys and beautiful architecture as for its proliferation of custom tailors. Have a bespoke suit, dress or even a pair of shoes made for a fraction of what you’d pay in the West — but allot at least 48 hours for all the necessary fittings. If you schedule your visit to coincide with the monthly full moon festival, you’ll be treated to a magical sight: The ancient town closes to traffic, businesses turn off the electricity, and residents send candlelit paper lanterns down the river.
How to Get There
What a fantastic place to stay, so close too the old city. The staff are fantastic and always wanting too please. Tu and ling from Exc lounge were fantastic and made our stay special. Hung was also very helpful and made our trip very enjoyable.
Excellent Hotel in a great location, close to everything in Hoi An. Great staff and amenities made our 25th anniversary very special.
Pool top bar is nice shame about the weather, rooms are laid out very well.
I stumbled across the hotel by chance upon arrival in Hoi An. Looking a bit disheveled I was still treated with the utmost respect. The staff were happy friendly and extremely helpful. I was offered a complimentary drink at the roof bar as my room was going to be a mere 20 minutes before it was ready. The manager organised a taxi to take me to a local barbers who was very good.
My room the service I received throughout my stay were near perfection. I also had a bit of luck in the adjoining casino which rounded things off nicely.
The swimming pools were beautiful and the service attentive at any time of night or day.
I will be staying here again
