The Nam Hai Villa Resort, Hoi An, Vietnam

Where can we find this hotel?

The Nam Hai villa resort is located on the pristine Hoi An Beach on the coastline of Central Vietnam and nearby to the historical and architectural riches of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Hoi An, My Son and Hue.

What are the surroundings like?

The name Nam Hai means wind and water and describes the setting of the private, beachfront villas nestled amidst tropical gardens and stretching along an untouched shoreline seemingly taken down from heaven.

Why do we like it?

Each villa faces the ocean, and some have private plunge pools. There are also three levels of recreational pools, including one that is heated, one for lap swimming and an Olympic size pool down by the sea. Two excellent restaurants are the highlights of this remarkable property. The staff’s attention to detail is outstanding and makes crystal clear their aim is to make each guest’s stay absolutely perfect and fits exactly their expectations for outstanding personal service.

4 Rivers Floating Lodge, Koh Kong, Cambodia

Where is this hotel located?

This eco-tourism resort is remote but accessible. It is located by boat 25 minutes from Tatai Village and a 20-minute car ride to nearby Koh Kong City, near the south-eastern border of Thailand. The journey to Koh Kong City takes three to four hours by car from the nearest airports in Phnom Penh or Sihanoukville.

Why is it special?

The setting is a rainforest, and an ecological miracle that deserves an environmentally friendly resort to capture the imagination while offering the comfort and luxury of high-end facilities. Guests can stay in peaceful seclusion or trek into the jungle or kayak down the Tatai River to fish or visit majestic waterfalls.

What is it like?

Each of the 12 guest rooms is in a tented villa with a large balcony built with enviro-friendly materials combining luxury with practicality. The resort, in partnership with the local environment, is staffed by local people who have been trained in all aspects of running the resort.
