Hoi An, Vietnam

As the global community finds its feet in a changed world, there’s a natural tendency to seek out life’s most meaningful experiences: mindful daily rituals; sun-dappled strolls in secluded verdant gardens; genuine kindness shining from local eyes; and a desire to connect with people and places – all of which Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai, Hoi An offers in abundance.  

Awarded Vietnam’s first Forbes’ Five-Star rating in 2019, the Resort once again scored top grades from the incognito inspectors to secure the highest accolade for the third consecutive year, cementing its position as one of the world’s most highly-rated properties. The Nam Hai service standards were particularly applauded, with its superlative facilities – from three iconic sea-fronting pools to The Nam Hai Cooking Academy and The Heart of the Earth Spa – all contributing to the achievement.     

“We are extremely grateful to be receiving this accolade at this moment in time,” comments General Manager Blaise Montandon. “This has been a year of taking care of one another and the local community, and expanding awareness of our role within a global family. It’s more important than ever for us to create meaningful interactions especially when we’re physically apart. I am thankful to every one of our team members – as well as our friends and guests around the world – who have stayed connected with us and shown deep care and kindness despite many recent challenges.”  

Kindness is ubiquitous at The Nam Hai, epitomised by The Heart of the Earth Spa, where the interrelatedness of all is celebrated through treatments featuring singing bowls tuned to the same harmonising frequency as nature. From here, ripples of meaning are spread out across the Resort to touch the spirits of employees and guests alike.

The Resort’s commitment to sustainability spans from the life-changing work in partnership with Sympathetic Hearts charity – with more than 600 essential food packages distributed to families whose livelihoods were affected by COVID-19 since the start of the year – to its own water bottling facility and solar-powered water heaters.  

While connection to Vietnam’s culture is at the heart of The Nam Hai’s ethos, seclusion and serenity are equally woven into each moment. One hundred villas dotted throughout 35 hectares (86 acres) of palm-shaded gardens and pristine beach create a sense of spaciousness and privacy, while meaningful design features – inspired by the local concept of Phong Thuy (Feng Sui) – bring guests in harmony with their surroundings.
