Hotel Review: Palm Garden Resort & Spa, Hoi An, Vietnam


The ancient city of Hoi An attracts many tourists each day and can be quite a busy city to stay within. So, if you are after a more relaxing stay in Hoi An with a hint of serenity just a stone’s throw away from the bustling city, Palm Garden Resort and Spa is the place for you.

This five-star hotel situated only 5km away from the infectious Hoi An, and 30km away from Da Nang International airport, sits on the beautiful Cua Dai Beach.

Bask in the glorious sun on the wooden daybeds overlooking the white sanded beaches that lead to clear blue waters beyond. This popular stretch of beach lined with stunning palms is a tropical oasis and a perfect place where yoga can be experienced daily allowing total mindfulness.

Palm Garden’s calm atmosphere is contagious. From the moment you arrive, the tranquil gardens and ambience will immediately alleviate any stress you may carry.

The pristine gardens meticulously manicured by a multitude of attentive gardeners in their traditional Vietnamese attire, are a delight. The five-hectare grounds of this tropical paradise would astound any green thumb. With over 400 species of plants, you will find a mixture of banana and coconut trees, palms, ferns, cycads and of course beautiful frangipani.

Wooden bridges, pretty ponds and delicate stone ornaments dispersed throughout the grounds combined with native Vietnamese flora and fauna enhance this Garden of Eden. The green open grassed areas surrounding the central large pool are ideal for yoga or simply for kids (or adults!) to run around barefoot on and have fun.

A wide range of land and water activities are available and Kids Club is also offered.

Complimentary 5-10-minute shuttle rides to Hoi An city are a convenient way to reach the bustling city. Alternatively, you can rent a bicycle from the resort and cycle your way through the local neighbourhood or through the nearby endless rice fields. Either way this centrally located resort caters for all and presents an experience to remember.
