Vinh Hung Emerald Resort

In Hoi An in Vietnam, the new Vinh Hung Emerald Resort is in its soft opening period until 31 May this year. We like the property because the resort is located on the bank of the romantic Thu Bon River in a secluded garden. It is a five-minute walk from the old town. Hoi An is famous for its traditional architecture and its many shops and restaurants. Hoi An tends to have something for everyone — whether enjoying UNESCO heritage culture, going to the beach or shopping for Vietnamese souvenirs.

Inside the property the guest rooms have a nice, clean minimalist modern look and feel – all clean lines and no clutter. We like that. They have all the necessary amenities such as balcony,  international TV, safe box, hair dryer and internet access.

To get a real sense of place, Khiri recommends excursion to the Hoi An heritage city and excursions on the Thu Bon river.

Bawga Theiddhi hotel Bagan

In Bagan, Myanmar, the new Bawga Theiddhi Hotel is in the heart of new Bagan.  We like it for its combination of modern and ancient architecture. The hotel has 32 superior rooms, 12 deluxe rooms and six junior suites.

The deluxe rooms are spacious with restrained pastel colours and cool wooden floors – a nice place to retreat to after visiting Bagan’s hot, dusty temples.

The property offers a nice swimming pool in a relaxed garden setting.
