Located on a private beach spanning 1km in Hoi An, the 100-villa resort sprawls across 86 tropical acres and features a stunning central complex of three descending infinity pools.
All accommodation options at the Resort are either beachfront or poolside villas – apt for the sun-seeker traveller. Guests can embark on a Vietnamese culinary journey from a freshly brewed aromatic cup of coffee from the Ethical Cup menu to an array of authentic Vietnamese flavours from all regions on the Vietnamese Street Food night, which brings in vendors from across Hoi An into the resort for guests to enjoy local street food.
After a long day of activities, guests can visit The Heart of the Earth Spa to connect with Mother Nature. This concept is centred on the mindful teachings of the renowned Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hạnh. One of the most popular treatments at the spa is the ‘five elements bodywork’. This full-body treatment uses stretching, palm effleurage, thumb slide and knuckling to balance the five elements in the body and ends with crystal singing bowls.
