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
We stayed 8 days in a terrace suite The club ving. Room c211 , our son in junior suite c208. Both lovely rooms , vintage decor with tub , and huge beds. In the terrace room there is a giant terrace with spa tub outside , sun beds and tableset. Sun in the afternoon. We payed for a upgrade when we arrived and got the better breakfast in the Temple Restaurant .
Service is outstanding , staff know all about your stay and preferences.
We biked all around Hoi ann , also to the beach , lovely with the free bikes.
We also took the cooking class with Ty , biking around the countryside to a vegetable garden and to the marked , booth places we got a great introduction to the ingredients in the Vietnamese kitchen and after we made 5 disches in the outside section of Reed bean restaurant .
If we visit Hoi An again we will definitely stay in La Siesta again.
This hotel and staff couldn’t be better. Staying here transports you to a quiet oasis and out of the tourist storm. It really is cozy and classy at the same time. I’m just sorry we couldn’t have stayed longer!
Our two night stay in La Siesta was too short! From our arrival when we were served with a welcome treat and drink until our bags were safely stored in the vehicle we were treated with great service. Our room was very comfortable and clean. It is of 5 star quality! The entire staff were so polite and there to ensure we had whatever we needed and their friendly demeanor make us feel so welcome and cared for. Couldn't have asked for better care or service!
Excellent boutique hotel with friendly helpful staffs. Beautiful landscaping and salt water pool was great. On top of that, the hotel is eco friendly with no plastic in the room, innovative way to use newspaper as a waste basket.
Initially have a problem with my 1st room but fixed immediately.
The temple restaurant for breakfast was excellent, tasty food and again friendly staffs.
The spa was top notch and really value for money. The therapist and spa receptionist was friendly and accommodating.
Overall, an excellent place to stay. My only feedback was that they should increase the frequency of the shuttle bus.
The hotel is so beautiful and serene. Every staff person was unbelievably kind and helpful. The room is large and the bed was really comfortable. They not only make your room in the morning but they come in the evening do a small cleaning and leave you a small treat on your bed. One of the treats were these amazing coconut cookies.
The shuttle to/from the hotel and the beach is a great service. Although you can walk from the hotel to the old town with two young kids the shuttle makes it very convenient.
We mainly used the large salt water, as soon as my kids were awake they needed a jump in the pool.
Breakfast was good.
