Hoi An, Vietnam

Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai, Hoi An has been awarded Forbes coveted Five Star Award during the inaugural year of Forbes inspections in Vietnam. It joins 36 Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts worldwide to receive the Five Star rating in 2019 and is the only property in Vietnam to receive the top accolade.

“As we begin our third year with Four Seasons on the central Vietnamese coast we’re overjoyed to receive such a sought after accolade,” comments General Manager Anthony Gill. “To achieve Five Stars during the first ever Forbes rating is truly testament to the commitment and service of this extraordinary team. It’s not only a coup for us, but for the whole country, as we continue to deliver beyond expectation experiences to visitors to Vietnam.”

Proudly flying the flag for luxury in Vietnam, The Nam Hai’s tropical gardens span 35 hectares (85 acres), opening out on to the white sands of the country’s finest beach, fringed by more than 4,500 palm trees. Immersed in the luscious green surroundings, guests find contemporary home-away-from-home sanctuary in 100 luxurious one- to five-bedroom villas, many with private pools. Couples can rekindle romance in a private one-bedroom paradise, waking to the sound of the Eastern Sea and shimmering shore just footsteps away. Families gather at pool villas filled with entertainment essentials and space to stay and play, choosing from ocean views or the serenity of a private tropical garden, while large parties seek the peaceful sanctuary of hillside villas. Discreetly tucked into the surrounding landscape, the expansive complex is perfect for entertaining friends and family; spending days sipping cocktails on the pool deck; or dining in lantern-lit gardens after dark, with private butler service and sleek, modern amenities.

The Resort captures the soul of Vietnam, illuminating the spirit of all who visit.  Dedicated to coast, culture and community, guests are encouraged to immerse themselves in the diverse delights of central Vietnam, reconnecting with themselves and others through authentic and unique experiences: visits to the former fishing village’s onsite temple; creating authentic Vietnamese dishes in The Nam Hai Cooking Academy (served by the Resort’s herb and vegetable farm); and experiencing the powerful healing of Zen-Master inspired treatments and crystal singing bowls at The Heart of the Earth Spa, named one of the five best spas in the world as well as "Best Emotional Recovery Space" in the Condé Nast Traveller Spa Awards 2019.

Beyond the stylish sanctuary of the resort, nearby UNESCO sites satiate curiosity and celebrate the country’s rich history. The narrow, lantern-lit streets of Hoi An are a riot of colour filled with temples and tailors; the nearby Imperial City of Hue is home to glittering pagodas, ornamental ponds and tomb complexes; while My Son is strewn with temples dating back to the 4th century.
