Designed by French architect Reda Amalou, the hotel offers 100 freshly renovated villas (including 40 with plunge pools), 4 bars and dining areas, and a spa inspired by the Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. The hotel’s evocative design is based on the principles of Feng Shui and draws inspiration from the Imperial tombs of Hue city.

On the hotel’s expansive grounds, guests can enjoy three beachfront infinity pools, a family Olympic-sized lap pool, and a verdant garden dotted with over 4000 coconut palm trees.

For more immersion in the local culture, the Four Seasons hotel also offers the possibility of joining their onsite Nam Hai cooking school.

Run by Chef Tran Van Sen, the school teaches everything from the intricacies of Imperial cuisine, to tasty and hearty “street food”. 

The classes aim to provide a holistic vision of Vietnamese cuisine, and guests visit rice farms, local markets, and perfectly manicured herb gardens to choose their ingredients and understand the resorts’ “farm to plate” philosophy.

The resort’s spa embraces the same ideas of connected-ness, where treatments are carried out to the sounds of crystal singing bowls tuned to 432HZ, the harmonic intonation of nature. It’s a place to go to not only soothe the body but align you with the natural rhythms of the planet itself.

In the evenings, witness a unique ritual where the spa’s reception area resonates with the sound of singing bowls as the resort wishes goodbye to the earth. To live the experience to the fullest, write your own Love Letter to the Earth and let it float away on the lotus pond with a candle attached.

Then, of course, the villas at the Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai face the South China Sea and a 1km stretch of beach offering you dramatic views of Vietnam’s coastlines right from your terrace. But, should you wish to explore your surroundings, you’ll find the resort’s location within short distance of two UNESCO heritage sites, ideal. 

The historical trading port city of Hoi An is only 15 minutes away from the resort. Artisan ateliers, hole-in-the-wall eateries and the warm lights of colored lanterns take the UNESCO World Heritage town’s visitors back to another era.

At an hour’s drive from the resort lies My Son, the site of some of South East Asia’s most ancient Hindu Temples. The majestic signs of worship of a unique and ancient culture, the towering ruins of My Son date from the 4th-13th century and bare architectural kinship with the iconic Angkor Watt, and stand as testaments to the devastating power of time.
