Naman Retreat, a boutique beachfront enclave in Da Nang City, Vietnam, joined Small Luxury Hotels of the World’s collection last month. Situated between sandy beaches and the historical city of Hoi An Ancient Town, Naman Retreat is dedicated to a philosophy of holistic wellness, and because of this, offers guests 3- to 14-day Detox Journeys that focus on cleansing and purifying the mind and body, in addition to offering more bespoke spa treatments at the onsite Pure Spa. For guests interested in a culinary adventure, suggest the resort’s Hay Hay restaurant, which serves specialties of Hoi An Town such as cao lau, a regional Vietnamese dish made with noodles, pork and local greens. Naman Retreat also offers a 15-minute shuttle bus to the city itself where guests can take a cooking class or sample more of the area’s local cuisine.
A contemporary property, Naman Retreat blends Vietnamese heritage and culture with luxurious modern touches, whether it is through the property’s traditional bamboo architecture and exquisite interiors or modern amenities. Of the resort’s 104 minimalist villas, SLH recommends guests stay in a 3-bedroom Beach Villa, with private infinity pool and sundeck, in order to enjoy added benefits, such as a personal greeting at the airport and private dining options featuring a personalized music playlist created by the resort DJ. Rates start at $376 per night. For more information, visit slh.com/naman.
