My Adventures in Hoi An, Vietnam

Warong Tagerd

My experiences with Anantara Vacation Club have always been fantastic, but staying at Anantara Hoi An Resort was way beyond. Let’s start with the location. Perfect for visitors who don’t want to venture too far off the beaten path, it’s only a 10-15 minute walk to the ancient city yet it’s away from the busy crowds.


As a solo traveller, this place was perfect. After a hassle-free arrival, I received a warm welcome from the manager and resort staff, which was a nice personal touch. My room was very nice with a large comfortable bed and a living area that was perfect for me to relax in.


I always love the nice local touches Anantara puts into their hotels. The bed is one thing that I definitely prioritize during my stays. They have a variety of pillows for you to choose from and they give you a great night’s sleep.


Breakfast at the hotel offers a huge variety of food for you to begin your day. The staff was very helpful in arranging a day trip to match my stay schedule. The My Son Sanctuary Tour was very pleasant with an interesting history for you to discover. The driver and the transfer, provided by the hotel, made the trip effortless. The weather was pretty hot during my trip, but a nice chilled water and towel at the end sure helped to cool me down and get me ready for a nice ride back to the hotel.


The ancient city of Hoi An is a must-see if you are here. I enjoyed a late afternoon walk around until the night market opened. Taking some nice photos of Hoi An’s famous lanterns is recommended. Delicious local cuisine can be found in the ancient city or even at the hotel. If you don’t really know where to go and just want to have an easy night in, you can do so without leaving the hotel.


On my last night, the turndown service with a farewell message on my bed was a lovely touch. Even more surprising was a farewell card at breakfast on the morning of my check-out. Everything I experienced on my stay far exceeded my expectations. To finish it off, my private airport transfer in the BMW felt exclusive and luxurious. This trip sure eased my worries away.


If I ever visit Hoi An again, Anantara Hoi An Resort will sure be the first choice on my list, and I would recommend it to everyone. Thank you to all of the Anantara staff for making my Hoi An trip, and also my first time to Vietnam, unforgettable. Hope to see you all again soon.
