With a concept that combines healthy living and personal indulgence, every aspect of this resort has been designed to help guests maximize their sensory experience. The spa is Vietnamâ€™s largest, and all treatments â€”based on natural living practicesâ€”are included in the room rate. The feng shuiâ€“inspired architecture of the resort, modeled on Hueâ€™s forbidden purple city, promotes the flow of energy and an airy, Zen-like ambience from the elevated welcome area down to the white, sandy stretch of My Khe Beach (formerly known as China Beach).
Each of the minimalist 80 villas boasts a terrazzo tub and a private plunge pool set within a red-walled leafy green garden. The four two-bedroom spa villas incorporate a 13-square-meter plunge pool, while the two three-bedroom Fusion beach villas are fronted by a 70-square-meter private lap pool overlooking the South China Sea. The hotelâ€™s restaurants trade on fresh, tasty pan-Asian fusion cuisine, and thereâ€™s no need to set your alarm â€”breakfast is served all day
