New vietnam seaside hotel

Jump to last reply

This is the same group that owns the anantara riverside (former Marriott) and many other hotels that fodorites favor:


The Life Wellness Resort Quy Nhon, a tropical beach and spa retreat in a prime location along Vietnam’s south central coastline, has been rebranded as the Avani Quy Nhon Resort & Spa.

The resort is already well connected, with Quy Nhon Airport a 50-minute drive away. Daily flights operate from both Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi. Guests can also catch daily trains from Ho Chi Minh and Danang.

Travellers arrive to find a postcard perfect shore, with a backdrop of orchard covered mountains. The resort’s kilometre long, palm fringed, private beach boasts some of Vietnam’s most pristine sands and clearest turquoise water. Adding to the coastal allures, guests can reach the resort’s private island by kayak or have a local fisherman ferry them across, and then enjoy a day of swimming, snorkelling, fishing, sunbathing and picnicking.

Contemporary style is brought to life throughout the resort by hints of Vietnamese culture and Champa Kingdom heritage, including in the 63 guest rooms and suites.

Private balconies offer a sea view, with guest rooms offering 42 to 48 square metres of total living space, and suites a more generous 51 square metres. All rooms and suites can sleep two adults and two children or three adults with an extra bed, and the option of adjoining rooms and suites caters comfortably for families and friends.

The resort offers a selection of options for guests to enjoy the pleasures of food and drink. Dine, with cliff-side tables, a fresh sea breeze and stunning coastal views, is open all day. Sip, provides a casual, tropical poolside retreat, with the menu including refreshing exotic juices, smoothies and iced teas, light lunch options and a long cocktail list to indulge in as the sun sets. Lounge, as the name suggests, is designed with cosy sofas for quiet moments, as well as books and games for socialising and light replenishment and is open until late. In-Room Dining is also an option.

At the spa, an extensive treatment menu features therapies with nourishing indigenous ingredients, pampering packages and the therapeutic benefits of extended programmes. The spirit of indulgence continues in the beauty treatment rooms, steam baths, Vichy showers and a Japanese dry sand and salt sauna, followed by healthy beverages on the spa deck overlooking the garden. A beachfront pavilion offers wellness activities, including daily complimentary sunrise yoga and afternoon Tai Chi. Private wellness classes are also available, including meditation and massage.

In the tranquil surrounds of the resort, guests can play beach games, fly a kite, or snorkel, kayak, fish and cruise the waves aboard a traditional Vietnamese basket boat. Bicycles available at the resort can be ridden to a nearby lake and orchard or a local fishing village. Vietnamese cooking classes, cocktail making sessions and an orchard tour introduce vibrant local elements, and Vietnamese language lessons are free every day.

When it comes to exploring, Quy Nhon and the surrounding area offers a well rounded mix of culture, history, stunning scenery and local flavours. A fresh water lake in the nearby mountains is a great place to fish and a floating village restaurant dishes up superb seafood specialties. A local handicraft village is renowned for its pottery, woodwork, blacksmiths and rice hats, while Quy Nhon City is home to ancient Cham temples and pagodas, a bustling market and a fascinating history museum.

Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotel Group, Avani’s owning company, said, “We are very pleased to add this third resort to the Avani portfolio. Since the brand’s launch, the first two Avani resorts in Sri Lanka have become very well established in the market there and we are looking forward to growing the brand across Minor Hotel Group’s regions of operation. This new addition in Vietnam will soon be joined by several additional properties here in Asia and there are more to come – it’s exciting times for this new brand.”

Avani Quy Nhon is the third Avani resort, joining the two existing properties in Sri Lanka – Avani Bentota Resort & Spa and Avani Kalutara Resort. Additional properties will soon join the portfolio in Thailand, Malaysia and Sri Lanka.
