The Luxe List 2011, Vietnam: Fusion Maia Da Nang, Danang

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 Vietnam’s largest, and all treatments —based on natural living practices—are included in the room rate. The feng shui–inspired architecture of the resort, modeled on Hue’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 hotel’s restaurants trade on fresh, tasty pan-Asian fusion cuisine, and there’s no need to set your alarm —breakfast is served all day

Truong Sa St., Khue My, Ngu Hanh Son; 84-511/ 396-7999;; doubles from US$330
