Offering breathtaking landscapes, idyllic beaches and verdant countryside, Vietnam has much to attract travellers. But where best to stay if you would like to treat yourself to some of the finer things in life? Here is our round-up of the best Vietnam luxury resorts.

Four Seasons Resort the Nam Hai

A short drive away from the easygoing city of Hoi An, the broad expanse of palm-fringed Cua Dai Beach is lined with upmarket resorts including the indulgently luxurious Four Seasons Resort the Nam Hai. This extensive beachfront establishment is a designer’s dream. Laid out across acres of premium coastline, its chic minimalist villas are furnished and decorated according to the principles of Feng Shui, and come complete with private terraces and gardens – some even have their own pools. Staff provide flawless service in tranquil surroundings that include two elegant restaurants, a refined spa and an expansive infinity pool with sweeping sea views.

Six Senses Ninh Van Bay

Overlooking the turquoise waters of idyllic, secluded Ninh Van Bay on Vietnam's south central coast, the Six Senses boutique resort is only accessible by speedboat. Serene, stylish wood-furnished villas on the beachfront, on stilts over the water, or nestled in the rocky hillside benefit from chic bathrooms with free-standing tubs and private plunge pools, as well as 24-hour butler service. Guests can relish exquisite cuisine while dining al fresco overlooking the bay, savour holistic treatments and traditional therapies in the restful spa, and make the most of a wealth of exceptional diving opportunities within easy reach.

After sightseeing in Hue’s UNESCO World Heritage listed Imperial City, you can unwind with tai chi and yoga classes, enjoy spa treatments, hot tub or herbal steam bath sessions, or simply relax on a lounger underneath a palm tree next to the sizeable outdoor pool.
