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 enjoyed our stay here. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Location is good, only about a 10 min walk from the centre. And the rooms were lovely and well decorated - we had a big balcony with an outside tub which was great. Definitely recommend.
Unfortunately we were only able to stay in Hoi An for a couple of days and as soon as we arrived, wished we’d booked longer.
The staff in this hotel are gracious, kind, helpful, and I honestly cannot recommend them highly enough.
The property itself is a short walk from the Old Town but means it is nice and quiet.
We took a great bike ride using the hotel’s free bikes around the local rice fields and to An Bang beach.
We utilised the hotel’s lovely pools and had a gorgeous massage.
The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained and feel verdant and spacious.
Honestly, a wonderful hotel and excellent staff!
We spent one night here with my family, may 20. The hotel is beautiful and very well located. It is a 10-15 minute walk into the old town of hoi an. The hotel had a beautiful pool and the grounds were very nice and well kept. The room was spacious and clean with a balcony. We really enjoyed the breakfast. There were many choices and the setting was very tropical. The staff couldn’t do enough for you and treated you like gold! I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. The service was golden!
We stayed at this hotel with good friends and had a ball. The rooms were very well appointed (although a little dark) and the restaurants and bars were of the same high standard. The shower was the best I have every had - waterfall style. I did not want to get out! although coming from a country that suffers droughts - I did feel guilty....
There was a good gymnasium as well as a choice of two swimming pools. Lots of lounges and all neat clean and tidy.
We had a crazy photoshoot happening by a young chinese couple that entertained all around the pool for an hour or so! I wont forget that in a hurry. Narcissistic to the nth degree. Hilarious.
Food was high quality and make sure you order a coffee.
It was a handy 10 minute walk along the river into the old town.
After staying here and at La Siesta Premium in Hanoi, my partner and I are huge fans of this hotel group. Just like Hanoi, our Hoi An experience was fabulous. Excellent customer service in a beautifully appointed hotel where attention to detail is paramount. Everything is wonderful here. We stayed for six nights: first in a garden view room, which was large with a fabulous view over the paddy fields and then moved to a balcony room, which was larger again with a separate bath and shower and huge balcony overlooking the pool. Both rooms were terrific.
The ambience at this hotel is lovely: friendly, very helpful staff; magnificent gardens that made walking around the resort a real pleasure; two great pools, one of which attracted children so we went to the other, which was much quieter, and how great to have that choice; great breakfasts; terrific spa where I had the best massage of my life; free shuttle into town and beach - I could go on and on.
Thank you so much to all staff at this hotel. We had a wonderful stay. We were so sad to leave and would recommend La Siesta Hoi An or indeed any hotel in the La Siesta group unreservedly. Do yourself and your soul a favour and just go!
