vietnam

Vietnam is becoming a hot new holiday destination for good reason.  The climate is gorgeous, the beaches superb, and there are now a handful of excellent spa resorts.

We are featuring three outstanding resorts in this delightful part of the world:

  • Hoi An - on the central east coast near to Hoi An city - a UNESCO World Heritage site - there's the highly regarded Nam Hai and also the delightful Fusion Maia Resort
  • Con Dao - further south, the Con Dao archipelago's largest island - Con Son - is home to the superb Six Senses Con Dao
  • Nha Trang - located roughly mid-way between Hoi An and Con Dao, Nha Trang is where you will find Six Senses Ninh Van Bay - barefoot luxury at its very best.  And, nearby, the ultra stylish but very well priced Mia Resort, also with a beautiful beach and fabulous spa.

Vietnam is the latest Asian dragon to awake from its slumber.  Nature has blessed Vietnam with soaring mountains and an astonishingly beautful coastline.  Peasant women in conical hats still tend to their fields, children ride buffalos along country paths and people scratch out a living from impossible gradients.

Vietnam is a nation of determined optimists who have weathered war after war, survived colonialism and communism, and are now getting to grips with the wheeler-dealer world of capitalism.  Fiercely protective of their independence and sovereignty, the Vietnamese are graciously welcoming of foreigners who come as guests not conquerors.

Don’t believe the hype. Or the propagandist party billboards that are as common as statues of ‘Uncle Ho’.  Believe your senses, as you discover one of the most enriching, enlivening and exotic countries on earth.
