Anantara Hoi An

Riverside grace in the heart of Hoi An

This charming boutique hotel has been designed in a traditional colonial style in a wonderful setting along the Thu Bon River within walking distance of Hoi An's market and winding lines. An ideal base for your stay in arguably one of Vietnam's most picturesque towns, spend your days relaxing around the inviting swimming pool, having lunch at the breezy riverfront cafe or enjoying a massage at the spa before walking into Hoi An early evening for a walk around the lantern-lit streets and a meal in one of the many local restaurants. The hotel also offers Vietnamese cookery classes and lantern making classes so you can learn a new skill and bring home lasting memories of your holiday.

The best hotel!

Singapore, Singapore

We have visited Hoi An several times in the past five years. This was our first stay at the Anantara and it is easily the best hotel in the area. Traditional but with all modern conveniences. All rooms are very large, including the bathrooms, and all have comfortable little outside seating areas too. We ate at the riverside restaurant several times - extensive menu with really well-thought out local and international dishes, and a good wine list. Breakfast ticked every single box too. Two spa trips in three days - excellent massages. Beautiful grounds with a long stretch of riverfront, perfectly manicured lawns and flowerbeds, and a sense of calm and privacy. Very well-located, being only 10 minutes flat stroll into the old town. But by far the best aspect of the hotel is the management and staff. We have stayed at several Anantara Hotels around Asia and the service is always excellent. This team in Hoi An set the bar even higher. We could not have asked for a better welcome and a perfect three days being looked after by such a happy, smiling, thoughtful, professional team. Duc (so helpful), Luan (best Vietnamese pizza in town), and particularly Loan (my parents just wanted to hug her!) were exceptional, as were all members of staff we saw during our holiday and all of whom seemed to genuinely enjoy working at the hotel. An absolute credit to the management and to the Anantara philosophy and brand. A lovely holiday and we're so glad we stayed at this hotel. It made all the difference. Highly recommended. We wouldn't stay anywhere else, looking forward to our next trip already!
