Anantara Hoi An Resort
Location: 1 Pham Hong Thai, Cam Chau, Hoi An
This charming 1920s-style hotel is well-located in the quieter eastern end of the Old Town, surrounded by a more classy selection of shops and riverside cafes than the bus hordes to the west.
This low-slung traditional hotel and spa are beautiful right on the Thu Buon river, celebrating local culture with a variety of activities, including lantern making and traditional Chinese painting. Colonial-style rooms, some with sleigh beds or platform beds, are all dark wood and white linen, facing the garden or river with a seating area and a private porch. It’s just a five-minute walk to the Old Quarter, a beautiful pool area, spa with steam rooms and hammam, and various outdoor and indoor eateries add to the appeal, as does the good location.back to menu ↑

Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai
Location: Block Ha My, Dong B, Dien Ban
It would be churlish not to include the Four Seasons Resort of Nam Hai here; after all, its style, services, and amenities are legendary. Located in a secluded part of town with a private beach of white sand, this exclusive resort is the best of the best. Guests are treated to stunning views, lush tropical gardens, and excellent service. The beachfront villas have their private swimming pool, and there is an adult-only infinity pool flanked by sun loungers overlooking the ocean. It’s going to cost a nice penny, but it’s an experience you’re not going to forget in a hurry.back to menu ↑

Allegro Hoi An Luxury Hotel & Spa
Location: 86 Tran Hung Dao, Minh An, Hoi An
For travelers who appreciate a mix of modern and classic design, this contemporary, stylish hotel is perfect. Local attractions are just steps from the hotel and a short drive (or bike) to the beach, located in the heart of Hoi An. This hotel has a peaceful atmosphere, but at night, when the warm glow of hanging lanterns casts a romantic light on the grounds, it is particularly serene.
You will love returning to the peaceful and serene Allegro Hoi An after spending a long day wandering around the hot, crowded Old Town of Hoi An. The perfect way to cool down is to take a dip in the beautiful outdoor pool. And if you would prefer to hit the beach, you can take advantage of the daily free shuttle service.
Rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated with bright color pops and wooden furniture. And you can watch the sunset from your private balcony at the end of the day and then enjoy your big, private bath. During your stay, you will want to indulge in the hotel spa. You can opt for a massage session or a steam bath. If you would like to have a workout during your stay, they also have a 24-hour gym.back to menu ↑
The Hoi An Orchid Garden Villas
Location: 382 Caa Dai, Cam Chau, Hoi An
If you want to experience a traditional Vietnamese homestay with a difference, you won’t be disappointed – especially if you’re a fan of orchids. The Hoi An Orchid Garden Villas set in a tropical garden with a swimming pool and a quiet countryside just outside the old town, well-appointed bungalows with kitchens are great for families and anyone who wants to learn about Vietnamese culture; join the owners on a market trip, help prepare meals and learn about Vietnamese cooking, or learn how to spread and take care of orchids – the orchid garden here boasts an orchid. Bikes and breakfast included.
The on-site restaurant at The Orchid Villas serves delicious Italian and Vietnamese dishes, and for a fraction of the cost, the incredible staff and luxurious feeling will make you feel like you’re at a five-star resort.back to menu ↑
Hoi An Beach Resort
Location: 1 Cua Dai, Hoi An
Family-friendly, with access to the beach and the river. Squeezed between the beach road and the river at Cua Dai, six kilometers from Hanoi’s Old Town. Guests are housed in classy two-story buildings, with two rooms upstairs and two on the ground floor, each separated by stairs. Newer Superior Rooms are located in less attractive blocks facing the conference hall, so go to one of the Deluxe Rooms, which features lovely flooring and large balconies.
While a few rooms face the impressive river, most of them overlook the gardens. There’s no direct river frontage, but great river views – two pools and a delicious breakfast café. Litter and breakwaters make the public beach quite uninviting across the road, but the hotel’s children’s club, games room, and activities make it ideal for families. Improved roads make the Old Town easy enough to reach by bike.back to menu ↑
La Residencia – Little Boutique Hotel & Spa
Location: 35 Dao Duy Tu, Minh An, Hoi An
Graceful, practical, and fresh, but pleasantly old-fashioned. This is more reminiscent of Spain with its neo-classical design than the Old Town, but the corridors are properly lined with photos of ancient Hoi An. Vietnamese art, a corner desk, mosaic tiles, antique phones, and decent city views are featured in the Junior Suites through double-glazed windows that cushion against traffic and construction noise.
The Residencia Suites offer a glimpse of the river and a 1920s-style desk, sofa, and four-poster bed. Due to limited space, the pool is located in the basement with all the ambiance of a car-park. The corner breakfast café and the colonial-style lobby lounge are much more attractive. Half a block away from the river, there are some good cafes in the adjacent backstreets, with oodles of facilities to be found in the Old Town, 300 meters away.back to menu ↑
Hotel Royal Hoi An – MGallery
Location: 39 Dao Duy Tu, Hoi An
Riverside convenience, luxurious and serene. The brash seven-story European-style hotel looks incongruous in ancient Hoi An, but its riverside setting is flawless. All the balconies at the front are angled to ensure the maximum view of the river. Standard rooms are undersized; the Royal Deluxe rooms have a walk-through luggage compartment, dark wooden floors, an elegant desk, and a curved sofa facing the balcony – and the bathtub has a beautiful view of the river below. Suites are even more opulent in size.
Mediterranean tile work and lounge chairs appear to float in the shallow end of the courtyard pool, which is probably the most delightful anywhere in Hoi An or even nearby Danang. There’s a pool on the rooftop as well. Just a three-minute walk from the Old Town, the Royal Hoi An is squeezed between two quiet streets with an edge-of-the-city feel.back to menu ↑
Vinh Hung Emerald Resort
Location: 127 Ngo Quyen, An Hoi, Hoi An
Compact and riverside, with a feeling of a village, but a little distant. One in a chain of similar-named hotels around the city, this one faces the impressive Thu Bon River, rather than the stagnating offshoot in central Hoi An. It’s a typical beach-style resort that focuses more on affordability and functionality than on design and style, with blocks of rooms adjacent to the pool, pond, or gardens, but not overlooking the river.
The standard rooms are a little dark and would be noisy if they were near the lobby or pool, but they are stylish enough inside and feature pool-facing balconies. The pool is decent, well-shaded, and leads down to the river. Located between backstreets with a village vibe, the old town is still within walking distance, with plenty of cafes and shops nearby.
