The absolutely spectacular The Nam Hai Resort Hoi An recently took out the best Asian Leisure Hotel/Resort in the recent 2011 Smart Travel Asia Best in Asia Travel Poll.
The Nam Hai Hoi An actually shared the convened number one spot this year with another great Vietnam hotel the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi.
Last year the resort came in second place place behind the Amanpuri Phuket, Thailand. As you would expect the team at The Nam Hai were ecstatic to be placed equal first in this year’s poll.
The Nam Hai Hoi An was opened in December 2006 and within 2 years it took out Travel + Leisure Magazines Best Resort in the world for Design. The Nam Hai is located between Da Nang and Hoi An approximately 10 kilometres North West of Hoi An’s main township and 30 Kilometres South East from Da Nang International Airport.
The Nam Hai website sums up the resort with the following words, and we could not agree more
“Along a seemingly infinite stretch of sand, amidst Vietnam’s richest cultural heritage, a strand of sophisticated, visually striking villas lines the dramatic beachfront. Inspired by 2,500 years of history, The Nam Hai’s architecture and interior design presents a dramatic play on wind and water inspired by ancient feng shui philosophy and the grandeur of the Tu Doc royal tombs of Hue.”
