The luxurious imprint of Anantara Hoi An begins the moment the driver picked us up at Da Nang Airport, the nearest international airport to Hoi An. During the 40-min journey, we were treated to Vietnam’s favourite snacks and a selection of drinks while music (selected by us) accentuates the holiday mood.

On the way, we stopped for a few minutes to take pictures of the Marble Mountain, famous for its pagoda which can be reached via a lift (yes!).

Upon arrival at the resort, we were greeted very warmly by all the staff as well as the General Manager, Glen Campbell. Throughout our stay, the staff will greet us with a “Sin Chow” (‘hello’ in Vietnamese) accompanied by a warm smile. You can truly feel all your stresses melting away as you adjust to this relaxing vibe.

Quite unexpectedly for us, we were upgraded to a suite, just one suite away from the inviting swimming pool. Our suite was designed with a split level layout; the upper floor of the suite consists of a big bed and a Balinese-style bathroom (indoors) which leads to a lower lounge that opens onto a porch with comfortable day beds and a tranquil garden.
