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.
How to Get There
Stayed here from 13-17 May with my husband. From beginning to end La Siesta staff were polite, friendly and always happy to help with any request, especially Rose(Hoa), who welcomed us at the beginning and continuously checked throughout our stay to ensure we were happy. The resort room, stayed in Premium Terrace Suite, was clean, spacious and great view of pool & gardens and had a large balcony with private spa and lounge chairs- best room have stayed in. Benefits included as per website are great. Ate breakfast in Temple restaurant and all staff went out of their way & special mention to Julia who was exceptional and ensured I had gluten free bread & crepes every day. There was plenty of food choice, western & Vietnamese. The Red Bean restaurant also had a good selection of Vietnamese meals and Ella was very helpful in ensuring my selections were gluten free.
The pool area was great with heaps of lounge chairs available and a beautiful serene garden surrounding. Drinks & food also available with happy hour every afternoon.
La Siesta is situated about 15 min walk or 5min bike ride to Hoi An old town or there is free shuttle. We went in every day by all methods and was easy & interesting journey in and worth visiting. We also did a 3hr bicycle tour of local villages and was a great experience and highly recommend.
La Siesta Hoi An Resort & Spa was exceptional and for the price paid great value and more than would get in a hotel in Australia for this price. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Would recommend to all couples, families(many there) and groups of friends
This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The staff are lovely, friendly and smart. The hotel rooms are quite large, very clean and very comfortable. In all a fantastic small hotel
Well done everybody there
The resort is large enough for privacy but small enough for resort staff to know your name. A nightly turn down service is provided with a small gift left on the bed each night, lovely thought.
The gardens are beautifully landscaped with two swimming pools available to guests.
A free shuttle bus runs into the old town of Hoi An although you can walk the distance in around 15 minutes.
My wife and myself had the absolute pleasure of spending 3 nights in this wonderful hotel during our holiday in Vietnam. From the moment we arrived the staff were friendly, warm and welcoming. We ate in both restaurants during our stay and the food was very good, served by a staff that go the “extra mile” to please the guests.
Both drinks and food are reasonably priced, for a hotel of this standard and, again served by superb staff. All public areas and rooms are spotlessly clean and the two swimming pools are fantastic
I hope this review makes anyone who has booked this hotel look forward to their visit, I am quite jealous of anyone with a visit to La Siesta upcoming!!!!
We really enjoyed our stay at La Siesta. The staff were excellent, the Temple breakfasts were varied and of high quality, and the hotel grounds were a great place to spend the hot afternoons.
Location wise, we were happy with the 10-minute walk (5-minute cycle) to the old town.
We'd certainly stay again.
