March 21, 2014 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: ,

Khiri Travel’s roundup of new and intriguing hotel options from around the region….

Nam Cang Riverside House, Sapa, Vietnam

Where can we find this hotel

Located in the heart of the Vietnamese northern mountains, this new house is built and owned by a Red Dao minority family. The house is located off the beaten track, near Sapa. Visitors will be able to experience the real, remote Vietnam and its serene natural surroundings when staying here.

Why do we think it’s special?

The house is built and owned by one of the oldest Red Dao minority families of Nam Cang. They have been living there for four generations and now have a chance to share their traditions with overseas visitors.

What can we do in the surroundings?

The surrounding area is great for village walks and meeting locals. Learning and getting involved in their jobs and daily life is what visitors will get from this homestay. The kind-heartedness of local hospitality can really be felt here. The Red Dao minority invites guests to join in their daily activities.

Vedana Lagoon Resort & Spa, Hue, Vietnam

Why do we think it’s special?

The villas of the five star Vedana Lagoon Resort are very special as they’re located on or near the water. While working on the layout of the resort, the architects wanted it to be spacious. This resulted in the villas being placed far enough apart from each other creating maximum privacy.

What’s it like?

Vedanā Lagoon is perfect for anyone looking for a balance between nature and luxury. The resort is located in a secluded peaceful and serene lagoon, which is one of the biggest in Southeast Asia. It has stunning views. The villas are modern and luxurious with traditional Vietnamese elements. All villas come with amazing views over the water.

What can we do in the surroundings?

Besides the highlights that the historical town of Hue offers, visitors enjoy a relaxed and peaceful stay at Vedana Lagoon. Besides its spectacular décor and views, guests can also enjoy the yoga and Tai Chi lessons every morning or indulge themselves in one of the spa treatments.


Mia Resort Nha Trang, Vietnam

Where can we find this hotel

Just a little south from Nha Trang’s city center lies Mia Resort Nha Trang. It is located directly at the beach, with private villas having direct access to the sea. It’s a perfect place for travellers to find peace and relaxation.

What’s it like?

Every villa, condo and suite of this five-star resort comes with comfort and luxury. The rooms are spacious with private verandas and sea views. Guests immediately feel de-stressed when setting foot in the resort. It is very elegant. The most special part is the staff paying attention to every little detail.

Why do we like it?

The outstanding customer service and gorgeous views, we think, make this resort exceptional and unique. The staff is committed to their guests. Guests are even treated with gifts such as fruit and sugar cane while lying on the beach. In the mornings, a heavenly homemade breakfast is served.

An Lam Saigon River Resort, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

What are the surroundings like?

Combining peacefulness with luxury, An Lam Saigon River Resort is a boutique hotel along the Saigon River. It is a 15-minute boat ride away from Saigon city center. The resort is ideal for travelers who want to get away from bustling Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). Its name says it all. “An” means “peaceful.” “Lam” means “nature.”

What’s it like?

The property consists of seven contemporary luxurious villas. They are set in a well-maintained and developed tropical garden. Each villa has its own large terrace providing amazing views of the Saigon River. It’s perfect for travelers looking for a different Saigon experience.

What are alternative options to this hotel?

There are actually no alternatives to this hotel due to its secluded location. The views of Saigon River are unmatchable.
