Lose yourself on an exotic eastern holiday with Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Your stay in a luxury hotel in Vietnam will transport you into the pages of a Graham Greene novel with elegant pagodas, juicy rambutan fruit and streets buzzing with pedal-powered rickshaws.
Luxury city breaks in Vietnam
At Nha Trang’s Long Son Pagoda a chalky-white 24-metre high Buddha perches atop a lotus blossom. Towers carved with the symbols of Hindu mythology are dedicated to the gods at the Po Nagar temple complex. Shop at Hoi An’s maze of tailors’ boutiques and treat yourself to bespoke, hand-made garments in silk and cashmere. Multi-coloured fishing junks bring early morning catches into Phan Thiet harbour for spicy seafood suppers infused with local Nuoc Mam fish sauce.
Luxury beach holidays in Vietnam
Rickety fishing villages and green mountain ranges border sweeping horseshoe bays around your boutique resort in Song Cau. Phan Thiet’s luxury 18-hole golf course was designed by Nick Faldo to incorporate the rolling sand dunes. Terracotta red dunes on Mui Ne beach change shape with the trade winds of the South China Sea.
Luxury retreats in the Vietnam countryside
Outside Nha Trang, Yang Bay’s trio of waterfalls crash through the surrounding rainforest. Buffalo plough through paddy fields in Tuy Hòa’s river-flooded plains. Stay in Pan Thiet to experience its serene White Lake edged with cerise lotus flowers. The sight of a 10 metre reclining Buddha rewards those who scale the jungle heights of Ta Cu Mountain.
Book your holiday in romantic Vietnam with Small Luxury Hotels of the World for deserted beaches and indulgent spas. Asian-French fusion cuisine is served beside red sand dunes at boutique waterfront villas in Mui Ne and slow motion Tai Chi classes are held on the beach in a tropical hideaway at Song Cau.
